About the Golf Club

Nelson Golf Club is situated on a plateau over 800 feet above sea level overlooking the towns of Burnley, Nelson and Colne.In spite of being on top of the hill it is not a tiring course to play.

The late Dr. Alister Mackenzie of Leeds, who laid out the course, managed a design which does not include any wearsome climbing. The course is laid out in the traditional style with two loops of nine holes, having the tenth tee available as an alternative starting point.

The first nine holes follow the outer perimeter of the course and run clockwise, whilst the second nine holes return on the inner, in an anti-clockwise direction. The secret of a low score lies in the five par 3's. None of these is particularly long, except the 16th, which is slightly uphill and tends to play longer than its measured 184 yards.

The wind can however cause problems with club selection, and all these greens are well protected. Any player who can make level par on these holes can lay the foundations of a good score.

A real favourite of mine, always a friendly welcome awaits at Nelson and the Clubhouse and catering facilities are excellent. The course is always in top condition, the greens really are a credit to the ground staff. Memorable holes include the par 5 third, driveable by the big hitters on a dry day and the par 4 5th where 2 good shots are required to a tricky undulating green. Always a pleasure to visit Nelson.
