Course Details

Course Name: Sandiway Holes: 18 Yardage: 6400 SSS: 72
A delightful tree lined course set in the heart of Cheshire. Designed by Ted Ray, the course is on a sand base in the park and moorland estate of Delamere. Although relatively short, the SSS, two over par emphasises the degree of difficulty. Resulting from the subtle use of natural contours, combined with a series of long par 4s, including the 7th, 10th, 12th and 14th. Standing on the first tee and looking across a valley to an armchair green, you get an excellent idea of the character of the course which provides a variety and a challenge all the way to the 19th.

    Although a member at Warrington Golf Club (about 12 miles away), I have been fortunate enough to play Sandiway a number of times, including during my junior days with the Warrington team.
    The front nine offers an excellent variety of holes, with a tough opening hole followed by a par-5 which requires an accurate drive. The course has several outstanding holes, not least the par-4 5th hole, which has a tiny target for its green.
    On the back nine, the hardest hole to negotiate is undoubtedly the 10th, which often requires two well-struck woods to get anywhere near the green.
    This is a course where you cannot afford to relax and must concentrate on every hole if you desire to shoot a low score.
    It is regarded as one of the best courses in Cheshire, mainly due to its exceptional condition at all times throughout the year. The fact that it is a sand-based course certainly assists with this, and ensures that the greens are pacey, true and can withstand the rigours of the British climate.
