Depending on the age of your kids and their level of golfing skill and excitement for the sport, at least one of these golf courses will be a fun outing for your family. Check them out!

Hartford Golf Club

Hartford Golf Club is very keen on promoting young players, so they offer plenty of features to juniors that make this an excellent spot for families to golf together. You can take your youngster along to the driving range at any point, and get 50 balls for just £2 so they can work on their driving. Once they’re good at it and they’ve developed a love for the game, there’s a junior Golf Academy which will teach them everything they need to know! Juniors can also get discounted green fees (or free!). Alternatively, they can “pay and play”, without needing to be a member. The club hosts multiple junior competitions throughout the year so there’s always something fun and challenging for young golfers! If you want to play a round as a family, there’s a junior set of tees on the course, known as the “tiger” tees. You can also enjoy a meal or a coffee, making it a great family-friendly option that’s healthy as well as fun!

Astbury Golf Club

Astbury Golf Club has playing sections for men, women, seniors, and juniors, so there’s plenty of opportunity for every member of the family to play (although these are fairly separate sections). However, if you’d like to play a round together, you can absolutely do so. There are 4 sets of tees, so family members of all levels can have a fun and challenging round no matter what their skill level. The club also has an active social calendar, so the whole family can take part in events They have a very active junior golf section, with young golfers playing for free until the age of 17. Astbury has received the England Golf Sage Golf Accreditation, indicating that it’s a safe environment for kids and teens to enjoy their sport and grow. Whether you want to head to the golf club as a family or you’re looking for somewhere that’s a great environment for your kids to learn the game and have some fun, Astbury is an excellent choice.

Woodside Golf Club

This public golf course has something for every member of the family! The golf course itself is a 9-hole course which plays two ways to make up 18 holes. There’s also a 9-hole par-3 course, which is perfect for juniors who are learning the ropes. For the younger kids, this club offers the two most fun versions of golf you can find - mini golf and footgolf. Woodside has a family footgolf course, which is an excellent way to teach your little ones the foundations of golf before they can even hold the club properly! Footgolf requires you to kick a football into a hole in the fewest kicks possible. Exactly like golf, but not! It’s a super fun day out for the whole family, with no pressure. The club also offers mini golf and footgolf birthday parties for kids. This is an excellent way to keep your kids active and enjoying themselves in between chewing on birthday cake! All in all, we rate Woodside highly as a family-friendly golf course.

The Tytherington Club

The Tytherington is more of a health and fitness club than a golf club, but it does have a lovely parklands course that combines tricky bunkers (more than 100 of them!), water hazards, and Peak District views to make for a lovely round of golf. One of the things that makes the Tytherington so family-friendly is the large range of things to do here. While you’re playing golf, another family member might want to spend some time in the pool, or get in a gym workout with a beautiful view of the golf course. The club also offers a variety of fitness classes, including functional fitness, yoga, Les Mills, core training, Pilates, and Zumba, to name just a few! If you become a Club Family member, you’ll be able to take advantage of an onsite creche to keep the little ones safe, swimming lessons, kiddies’ golf lessons, and a variety of other kids’ activities.

Shrigley Hall Hotel Golf and Country Club

Shrigley Hall is an old-school style club, but it does invite the entire family to enjoy its facilities. In terms of golf, this isn’t the most forgiving of courses, boasting contours around the natural terrain and some of the finest closing holes in the country. However, for the younger or less experienced golfers, there’s a 6-hole par-3 course which is much more fun and forgiving. Other amenities include extensive grounds for exploration, a luxurious spa, a pool, and a variety of activities in the nearby Peak District National Park, like cycling and fishing. But one of the best things about this place—and something that gets it a true full-family-friendly rating—is that they’re dog-friendly! Fluffs are part of the family, so no family member has to be left behind if you decide to visit this club.

Which of these family-friendly golf courses in Cheshire catch your eye? Each one has its own charm, but there’s something for every kind of family here. Whether you’re taking the family along for a day out, playing a family-against-family round of golf, teaching the kids how to play, or watching them learn from a pro, these courses have all you need for a full family fun time.
