A Very Warm Welcome!
This superb test of moorland golf was first opened in 1891 as a 9 hole course, the very first Golf Club in the Bolton area (hence the ‘Bolton’ and the ‘Old’ bits of the name).
In 1924 further land was obtained by the Club and the course was developed into its present 18 hole layout by renowned Golf Course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie, who was responsible for many wonderful courses worldwide, including Augusta National home of ‘The Masters’ …as a result, we are very proud to have been granted membership of the MacKenzie Society.
Bolton Old Links was designed as a traditional old style or ‘Links’ course, referring to the terrain, layout and ever present windy conditions due to it’s height above sea level, rather than a location next to the coast (yes, you’ve guessed it… the ‘Links’ bit of the name).
The course has been selected as a venue for professional events, including the European Satellite Tour, the Wilson PGA Championship and more recently the Exel Golf Tour. A true test of Golf, Bolton Old Links has 18 uniquely challenging holes, complimented by a welcoming clubhouse, inviting you to enjoy a drink, snack or tasty meal, in relaxing, comfortable surroundings.
