Customer Testimonials


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the service we have received from your staff.

We have been using your premises for some years for our monthly meetings and for other functions such as dinners and other events. Some of us also enjoy coming to your New Year’s Eve Ball.

Martin and his staff make us feel very welcome and the service we receive is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for Martin and he does his very best to provide what we want.

We were very fortunate to find you when we were looking for new premises and I hope that our relationship continues well into the future.

We recently held a charity golf day at Hazel Grove. Dealing with James (the Pro) was very easy. He made the process very simple and was more than happy to offer any advice in order to improve our event. The same must be said for the kitchen staff who not only provided us with a great meal afterwards, but also were able to accommodate some of our clients who had special dietary requirements.

The course was in superb condition, especially considering the amount of rain that had fallen only a few days previously. All our players had an enjoyable day and we would be more than happy to come back here again for another event.

A quick note to say thank you for hosting our Captain’s Day last Friday. Everyone at Hazel Grove GC made us feel very welcome, the course was in superb condition and the catering was excellent.

Please pass on our thanks to everyone involved, and we hope to see you again next year.

Best Regards

We held our annual corporate Golf Day at Hazel Grove Golf Club in May 2016 and we just want to thank everyone at the golf club for their warm welcome. Thanks go to Martin and the catering/bar staff for providing us with an excellent choice of food and drink and the green staff for keeping the course in immaculate condition; many who played that day mentioned they would love to return for a game and praised the condition of the greens. Special thanks go to the two professionals, James and Ian – their help was crucial to the day running so smooth and I cannot thank them enough; they also have a fully stocked pro shop and are great lads. I highly recommend anyone looking to visit Hazel Grove to play or run a similar sort of “golf day” to do so, and in the first instance contact the lads in the Pro-Shop. We will all definitely be back very soon!

Just to say a very large thank you to HGGC for our society visit yesterday (the TwitTwoo’s). The course was in splendid condition, the turf an absolute joy to play off.

As for the staff in the clubhouse, barman, waitress and cook, if you were a little closer we’d be asking them to work at our club! They were friendly, efficient and made us feel very welcome.

Best regards,

Reply from HGGC – You’d have to fight us for our staff – we love them.

On behalf of my Captain, Executive and the Northumberland Captains, may I thank you and your Council for the hospitality extended to us on the occasion of our recent visit. Both the Northumberland and Manchester teams were delighted with the day and condition of the course which was a great credit to your Greens Staff.

Please may we also extend our thanks to Andy and his staff for the excellent catering they provided which was thoroughly enjoyed.

Very well done.

Once again, many thanks and kindest regards.

Hazel Grove’s reputation as one of the finest courses in Cheshire continues to grow after they hosted today’s Maxitours event. The staff at the club are exceptional and the terrific home pro, James Rowlands and Club Bar Manager, Martin Swindells are up there with the very best in the business.

Dan Huffman is the main groundsman at the Salford City stadium and he knows a thing or two about quality playing surfaces. He was very complimentary about the carpet-like Hazel Grove fairways today, especially after his team took 5th place with 83 points.

Despite glorious sunshine and perfect golfing conditions Billy Smarts’ team from Swinton Golf Club struggled to 74 points, ‘It was like playing with a bunch of clowns’ he complained.

Mick Mahon owns a top racehorse and he told me to put my house on it last Sunday. Fortunately I forgot to back it and it was beaten by a short head. There were not many people backing Mick’s team of thoroughbreds today however and they all fell at the first, second and fourth holes as they struggled to just 70 points.

Fast running fairways meant the straight hitters were always going to score well today and there are not many players more accurate than Mottram Hall’s Simon Conroy(8) who recorded four birdies. He was joined by Mark Saunders(9), Mark Williams(8) and Martin Broomhead(24) and they set the early pace with a wonderful 89 points.

Jim Rymer(20) and John Dickenson(18) are two lovely old boys from Heswall and they regularly finish in the bottom three. They nearly cancelled yesterday when they were two short before ex-european table tennis champion John Hilton(12) and Ron Jolley(17) came to the rescue. ‘They brought the best out of us, I didn’t think I could play that well!’ said a stunned Rymer,’ I might actually win my first ever prize.’

Taking 1st place today was the talented Pleasington team of John Hughes(9), Mark Robinson(10), Stuart Coupe(10) and Mike Johnson(6) who all gelled with an amazing 94 points. Great golf!

Thanks to all players for your terrific support today, I hope you enjoyed the course and weather.

Diamond Wedding Celebration
Thank you for the use of Hazel Grove Golf Clubhouse for our Diamond Wedding Celebration on 23rd August 2014. The venue was perfect for the event – a spacious room, lovely views and welcoming staff. The catering and assistance by Martin Swindells and his staff was excellent.

All the guests enjoyed the celebrations as they have told us and written to us in the many congratulatory letters we have received.

Thank you again for the generous use of Hazel Grove Golf Club facilities.

Another stunning and steamy day greeted today’s talented field of Maxitours Competitors.

There were very positive comments about the quality of the putting surfaces and excellent presentation of this Alister MacKenzie masterpiece. Hazel Grove, when it is prepared to this very high standard, is a real pleasure to play. Thanks to the Green staff and committee for all their hard work.

We just wanted to thank you and all the wonderful staff at Hazel Grove Golf Club for making our party such a great success. You made our party a wonderful memorable occasion and I know Melissa, Brent and all our guests had a fabulous time.

Our thanks to the Chef for all the delicious food, it was perfect, and everyone commented on how excellent it was.

Thank you again to everyone at the Club who was involved in making our Party such a great occasion and for all your hard work, it is very much appreciated.

Kind regards and best wishes,

I am taking the opportunity of writing to you on behalf of my fellow directors, members and staff and indeed, our valued clients.

I am delighted to say that without exception the day surpassed all of our expectations. With regard to the course, I am sure you will have been delighted to hear the comments of those golfers that you spoke to on the day. We have been overwhelmed by the compliments we have received and been asked to pass on to you about not only the condition of the course, but also the way in which it had been set up. Golfers of all abilities enjoyed the test it provided. A great deal of thanks must go to the HGGC Council, Working Party and their team, who worked tirelessly, and perhaps more importantly, were convivial and greeted everybody with a warmth which reflects marvellously on the Club. I would particularly like to thank them for working so hard to upgrade the Gents locker room ahead of the day.

To cater for such a large number of people in a completely new environment within the marquee, must have provided great challenges to Andy, Martin and their staff, but again we have received nothing but compliments for the quality and the way in which the meal was delivered.

In James Rowlands and his assistants Ben and Jack you have a great team. Their attention to detail was extraordinary and no task was too small.

As always, the weather helps and clearly we were blessed with almost perfect playing conditions.

Mr Captain, I do hope that you and your colleagues enjoy the remainder of your Centenary year. You have a golf club to be proud of and one which we hope to return to at a future date.

SMDGC President’s Day
On behalf of the President and the Society, could I please ask you to pass on to your Captain and Council our most sincere thanks and appreciation for the manner in which your club looked after us yesterday. We were made to feel most welcome throughout the day and it was a real pleasure to come to your club.
Considering all the rain around we did very well for weather and you are to be complimented on the standard of your course, with many if our Members commenting favourably on your greens, and I trust you will pass on our appreciation to your Greens Chairman and Head Greenkeeper.
The meal provided by Martin and his team was first class, with all the staff being most helpful and courteous, which helps to make it a most enjoyable day for our Members. Finally, I hope you will pass on my own thanks to Martin and the Professional’s team for their help prior to the day, which all contributes to the day running smoothly.

I would like to say a grateful “thank you” to the Golf Club for allowing us use of the club house for the Wedding Reception of our daughter Zoe and her husband Daniel on Saturday, 3rd August.
Everything went very well. The room and aspect were much complimented by our guests but, more importantly, so was the quality of the food and service we all received. Many of our guests complimented us on our choice of venue. I would like to pass this on to you. The professionalism of all the staff helped to make the day go very well but what struck us most was also their kind and pleasant attitude. Our thanks go to whoever found the plaster for our bridesmaid’s blistered foot, to Clare and staff who set up the room and cakes so beautifully , the chef, the evening bar staff and, of course, Martin who oversaw it all and was so patient with all the planning emails.
We initially found Hazel Grove Golf Club through the internet and not due to any personal recommendation. We chose it as a venue mainly due to the size of the room. It turned out to be so much more and we are delighted with the choice we made. I shall have no hesitation in recommending it as a venue for others to consider.
I would be grateful if you could pass on our gratitude to the club members and all the staff involved.
