About Wigan Golf Club

Wigan Golf Club lies in the heart of Lancashire, resting on the border between Wigan and Bolton. It is within easy reach of the bustling cities of Manchester and Liverpool and very easy to find due to it's close proximity to the M6 and M61 motorways.

Wigan's premier golf course is known as the "Hidden Gem" and is set in a mature tree-lined parkland, adjacent to a stunning reservoir and with magnificent views towards the Pennines. Wigan Golf Course was created in 1898, making it one of the oldest clubs in this area. The clubhouse, which was originally Arley Hall and has it's own medievil moat, originally dates back to the 13th century.

The course presents a fair challenge to any standard of golfer. Over the years few have beaten it but all have enjoyed it. Our tree-lined fairways lead you to some of the best greens in Lancashire and if you enjoy peace and tranquility, then Wigan is the course for you.

We hold a number of annual Opens and Charity Days each year and we believe that all our visitors will thoroughly enjoy the Wigan Golf Club experience.  Our stunning club house and grounds are the pefect backdrop to a great days golfing.
