Looking for a Cheshire golf course that really shines in the sun? Take a look here to find out Visit Cheshire’s picks for the most beautiful golf courses in Cheshire.

Whether it’s the start of summer or the dead of winter, we Brits love nothing more than to fantasise about how we might spend our days in the sun.

For golfers, there’s only one correct answer: packing a bottle of sun cream and hitting the links for a round of 18. Cheshire is renowned for being a prime golfing destination, so we wanted to share our favourite golf courses that really shine in the sun.

From Peak District landscapes to historical hidden gems, here are some of the most beautiful golf courses that Cheshire has to offer.

Portal Hotel

Macdonald Portal Hotel

With three impressive golf courses on-site, golfers are definitely spoilt for choice when they play at Macdonald Portal Hotel, Golf & Spa. However, the real crown jewel of Portal’s golf facilities has to be their Championship Course.

Over 7,041 immaculate yards, you will play against a stunning countryside backdrop, punctuated by cascading waterfalls, luscious treelines, and picturesque ponds. Take in these remarkable views while hitting the links or when relaxing with a drink in the clubhouse.

It’s certainly no surprise that Portal’s Championship Course was named ‘Golf Course of the Year’ only five years after it opened, reinforcing its reputation as one of the finest 18 holes in Europe!

Delamere Forest Golf Club

Hidden away amid the trees of Delamere’s magical woodland, Delamere Forest Golf Club is a true beauty to behold.

Despite its namesake, this secluded course makes use of natural, undulating heathland to create panoramic views, rather than voluptuously verdant tree lines. Gaze out at distant hills from the tee or admire the open design of the entire course from the raised plateau of the 15th hole.

Delamere Forest Golf Club was built in 1910, which means golfers have been enjoying its gorgeous views for well over 100 years. Are you ready to become a part of the course’s handsome history?

Helsby Golf Club

As a mostly flat parklands course with just a selection of features, Helsby Golf Club lets its surroundings speak for themselves.

While Helsby might not have the most charming waterfalls or elegant greenery, it is a course that accentuates the natural beauty of Cheshire. On a sunny day with impossibly blue skies, you’ll find yourself distracted by the stretching countryside, distant wind farms and forest-laden hills.

It’s a nice bonus that Helsby just so happens to also be one of the finest courses in the whole of the North West. The question is: can you tear your eyes from the landscape to concentrate properly on your next shot?

Hartford Golf Club

Established way back in 1896, Hartford Golf Club is one of the most historic clubs in Cheshire. For over 100 years, golfers have flocked to Hartford to play the beautiful game against an equally-beautiful backdrop.

We’re talking peaceful ponds, fine forests of trees lining the fairways, and expansive views of the distant Cheshire landscape. What’s more, you also have a choice of three stunning nine-hole courses when you play at Hartford Golf Club. Maybe you can even squeeze in a round on all three!

Regardless, there’s nothing quite like a day in the sun, strolling around Hartford’s gorgeous golf courses with a bag of your best clubs on your shoulder.

Disley Golf Club

Sitting on the border of Cheshire and Derbyshire, Disley Golf Club is perfectly placed to offer stunning views of the Peak District. Everywhere you look, you’ll find a magnificent mountain or hilltop forest, ready to be added to your Instagram story.

The course itself also paints a pretty picture. Disley uses small, undulating greens, tree-lined cul-de-sacs and wide, expansive fairways to wow and challenge in equal measure. Just make sure your eye is on the ball when you tee off and not on the beautiful surroundings!
