I often play this course, which is generally in good nick however, having played last Sunday, I feel I have to congratulate the green staff on the excellent condition of both the T boxes and greens. The fairways were a little worn in places however that can only be expected as a result of the amount of rain we had over the winter/spring. Some positive criticism: It would help if the 150 markers were more prominent on the fairways and, it might also be an idea to mark the damaged areas on the faiways as GUR to prevent some golfers walking over them therefore preventing their natural recovery. All in all a very well maintained,reasonably priced, course which I will continue to use on a regular basis

Golf testimonial from Don Patterson

After a week of very heavy rain we arrived at the course expecting the worst. However what we found was a golf course in superb condition from tee to green, the fairways whilst appearing to be very generous punished any player who strayed from them and given the breeze on the course was easily done (the wind turbine visible from the course should have been a give away). Some great challeging holes on the course and none of the par 3's were as easy as the yardage would seem. A great day was had by all and we will be booking a return visit.

Considering the weather we have had the course has been excellent , our group has played here for the past four weeks and has been on normal greens throughout . I can only say that during drier times the course will be a gem

Golf testimonial from Steve

Quite a flat open track this one, but some long par 4's. Plenty of fairway to aim at on most holes but smallish greens make approach tricky - freezing rain killed any run so hard to tell how would usually play. Nice restaurant for all day brekkie after game.

Golf testimonial from Steve

Golf in England's north-west is dominated by links classics such as Royal Birkdale, Royal Liverpool, Royal Lytham and Hillside, but venture inland slightly and there are some great parkland courses that represent unbelievable value for money. Garstang is one of them. Built less than 20 years ago, this remarkably mature and testing layout is home to some of the country's best inland greens and excellent drainage that makes it playable throughout the year. Situated only 30 minutes from Blackpool, Preston and Lancaster, it is ideally located for visiting parties, and, thanks to the large Best Western hotel which is on site, it offers travelling golfers a handy play-and-stay venue. The course itself was designed by PGA captain and master professional Richard Bradbeer in 1992 and meanders along the river Calder and Wyre, offering superb views. Not overly long and quite open, it seems on paper like a walkover, but that is far from the truth as it's fast, undulating greens and low par of 68 offer lots of protection.

Another great course local to Blackpool. Good facilities like the practice green and floodlit driving range. Staff good, club shop has variety of stuff to buy in case you forget anything like ball markers and spare tees. Good grub & ale in the bar also !!

Gastang Hotel and golf club was easy to find and had lots of free parking.

Golf testimonial from Mrs Anne M

A brilliant golf break. Hotel intimate and friendly, very helpful. Kept all our golf trollies, golf bags & damp gear in the locked Pro Shop overnight. We didn't even ask they just offered. The place has the feel of a smaller, very personal approach. Course was pretty good considering the amount of rain last week so bound to be slightly wet!

Golf testimonial from Mrs Joan W

Having spoken to all the party who attended the golf trip we cannot find any faults in either the rooms, food, bar or golf course!!!! Our thanks go to the bar staff who served us well into the early morning on both days, the rooms were comfortable and of a high standard. Credit goes to your green staff with all the rain that we had over the last two days being mindful of the river bursting it's banks. All the staff are a credit to the hotel, we are looking forward to returning around this time next year. Keep up the good work.

Golf testimonial from Mr Butterworth

Fine Welcome. The course is easy

Golf testimonial from PORTE Jean Francois

The rooms were of a much better standard than I expected, food was great and staff very helpful. We had a superb 3 days at a great value. The food and accommodation were superior and the golf was on a course that was accessible for the beginners in the party but also testing for the more experienced golfers. The links between golfbreaks and the hotel were excellent and all our needs were met. Thanks for a very enjoyable break, we will be booking next year.

Golf testimonial from Mrs Redwood

Thank you and all others involved in making our societies Away Day a great success and a most enjoyable experience. The feedback from all those members participating was positive, and we certainly hope to make Garstang an annual event in our callendar.

Golf testimonial from David Byard

Played on Thurs 30/6/11, everything was immaculate, the course is so green and lush at the moment and there is not a blemish anywhere. Staff are ultra friendly and the course is relaxed, saw one guy in a pair of jeans and football shirt which is refreshing as the club is more bothered about people enjoying the game rather than the snobbish attitudes of many of the courses down the A6 in Preston. Greens are excellent, fairways don't have a mark on them, tees are spot on and signed really well. Bar is great to and food really tasty. Been playing here since 1997 and keep coming back, and with Staining (same relaxed attitudes as Garstang) best value pay and play in the Fylde/Wyre area in my opinion.

Played the course on the may bank holiday weekend with the lads from the Homeguard in Failsworth manchester. The course is very demanding and long and a pleasure to play, the 3rd hole par three is a great hole to play, tight but a good test for any player. Also the 7th hole is a good test the green is sat along side of the river anything left and you you need a pair of wellies, sorry waders. I think the best hole on the course is the par 4 15th also running along side a river any thing left get your trunks out you will need them, i should know on the first day i went in the drink. Any one wishing to go Garstang for the weekend i think you would find it hard to find a better place, the staff are fantastic they looked after us for three days and it was a pleasure to stay there.If you see a little old man sat at the 15th hole telling jokes he is called Eddie Carey just put him on a train back to Manchester.

Always in great condition and well looked after all year round. A great course for beginners and lower handicappers alike. With wide fairways and generous greens there is always a chance of a new personal best here. A nice walk round too!
