What People Say About Us
"The welcome that we got from the club on our arrival was fantastic and very well organised. The course was in fantastic condition and I cannot fault the whole day. The staff were very welcoming and the members of the club are great. After the golf we headed upstairs for a fantastic 2 course meal which the new chef made."
Hi, thank you for the opportunity to play on the course and thank you for being so welcoming, it was a pleasure to meet you all. The course is brilliant, one of the best around the Bolton, Wigan, Chorley area. I’m not telling you my score though, because the 25mph winds took some getting used too!
Having the opprtunity to play has been brilliant. Everyone in the NHS has been working hard to fight this pandemic. It's very stressful and frontline staff are finding it difficult. But all departments are working together. Backroom staff are workinghard to find PPE and front line staff are leading the way in patient care. As more NHS Staff become aware of Wigan Golf Club's offer I'm sure they will take up the opportunity of a round of golf at this lovely golf club. It's a great idea and I would like to thank everyone at Wigan for giving NHS Staff who take up the offer a break from the stress of work."

"I had never played golf before! I came through the ranks of the Arley Academy coached by Tony Byrom, and met lots of like-minded new friends. My first occasion on the course was in Winter of 2018, and if ever I was going to give up golf, it was then, but the comradery of fellow Stepping Stone Members and the WGC members spurred me on. I recognised quite quickly that being protected inside the Academy walls with Tony correcting my grip, stance, and many other habits, was totally different from standing on the 1st Tee . Everyone was patient and totally supportive. I had no problem in finding a ‘friend’ to venture out onto the course with me. We became ‘all weather’ Buddies. I continued with my coaching during my Stepping Stone Membership and in no time at all the 10 sessions on the course had gone………… I was hooked, without any hesitation I joined as a 3 day member, and now have a handicap and play golf regularly with members’ I can’t get enough golf, and along with enjoying the social aspect, and the welcome I have received from everyone, there is no better Golf Club than Wigan Golf Club. From beginners to professionals everyone is welcomed at the same level. Since joining as a 3 day member, I have been to Portugal with the ladies that I met through coaching and played on numerous quality courses, and look forward to many more enjoyable trips. Golf at Wigan Golf Club has opened up a whole new world!" Lady member
