What a great course! First time we'd played it. Fortunately it was sunny and dry, with just a slight breeze, as I would imagine that it would be a different course in less favourable conditions. The layout is demanding but fair and the views from most of the tees are fantastic. Would strongly recommend

Burnley GC is quite a hilly course, not particularly long but quite challenging in its own right.

Greens and fairways well maintained and coping well with the hot weather in June/July.

Plenty of run on the ball at present and sloping fairways can be tricky to keep your ball in play. A good test however and driver not always the best option.

As visitors, we used a cart to navigate the course and in hot conditions, found this the best way.

Tee times at very reasonable prices can be found with companies online.

Views are magnificent from around the course and ingot weather this is a course to experience if you happen to be in the area.

The course is a challenging walk but the fairways and greens are very good. The greens are quite fast but are true. The views over the hills are brilliant. The par 3s are extremely challenging and a lot of bunkers surround a lot of the greens. I can recommend Burnley Golf Club and the off course facilities of food and drinks are very nice.

I love this course but if your unfit like me you will need a buggy.

I was that tired by the 15th hole I could hardly swing my club..

Given I grew up here as a junior I need to get fit but it nearly killed me last Saturday..

Looking forward to playing as it was 25 years since I visited - tee off 2:40 pm on a bright breezy day - greens were in very good condition but disappointingly many holes had temporary greens so put a dampener on the day

In a nutshell we (a 2 ball) ended up behind a 3 ball (last group of Lady Captains Day), were not allowed to play through despite polite request, and at halfway point we were on for a 5 hour round! They had 4 clear holes in front of them, and then just walked off! Poor etiquette/pace, and email sent to course regarding this. Course was okay given that it had rained a lot recently. Would have given better rating for VFM but aforementioned issues affected this. Would be very careful on timing if I decided to return.

I booked this last minute , just fancied a Change from my normal venues

What a pleasant surprise

Pro shop vey welcoming , great start

One of the members lent me his fob so I could access toilets and gave us a briefing on the course, really friendly

The course was in great condition and although short off the yellow tees proved a real test

Went in the bar for a beer afterwards was made very welcome

Just a top day out

Definitely going to return with friends

Burnley is quite a hilly course, and on the day of my visit it was quite windy too. It was very good value from TeeOffTimes, and it was very quiet- a two ball in front virtually the only other players I saw. The pro was friendly and welcoming.

There are some fantastic vistas and one or two par threes that are framed beautifully. The course was in good condition apart from some greens were recently cored and sanded.

Thoroughly recommended.

The closest golf gets to mountain climbing with some outstanding panoramic views!! It is tough climb - and for some reason I nearly always felt we were walking uphill rather than downhill!! Condition of the course was excellent given the heavy rainfall the night before. Although some fairways were 'wet' this was mainly due to the water run-off downhill. Greens were in excellent shape. Perhaps a few too many blind shots but given the setting that is probably to be expected. We thoroughly enjoyed our round and hope to go back!
