Dunscar Golf Club is recognised as one of the most scenic golf courses in the North West. It was founded in 1908 in the valley of Galebrook between Turton Heights and Winter Hill.
Though only 3 miles from the centre of Bolton, Dunscar offers peace, tranquility and fine uninterrupted views. Dunscar is an 18-hole moorland course and is a challenge to golfers of all levels. At 6033 yards it is not a short course and you need to pace yourself accordingly. The 3rd hole (Watermans) is surrounded by scenery that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up regardless of when you play. The whole valley opens up with the backdrop of Winter Hill on the left and Turton Heights on the right, as well as various stretches of water in the distance. Our signature hole is the 16th (Quarry) and is one of the most picturesque on the course. It is a short par three with four bunkers on the right and heather and gorse surrounding the front. The 12th and 17th also offer especially scenic views.
All-in-all, Dunscar is a very attractive and charming course. It is a private members’ club but visitors are most welcome. Why not take advantage of some of our great offers and packages? You can combine an early morning breakfast, a snack at lunchtime or an evening meal with the golf you have chosen. We combine great prices with great real ale in a great location!
