The Pennines Golf Trail

The Pennines Golf Trail showcases four scenic courses in the foothills of the mountain spine, aiming to attract visitors from home and abroad who appreciate scenic beauty as they line up their putts.

Straddling both sides of the Pennines in Lancashire and Yorkshire, the trail has been designed so visitors can choose to play all the courses over a week, while enjoying some of the legendary northern hospitality along with some fine local cuisine.

The four clubs making up the group are Clitheroe GC, Huddersfield GC, Manchester GC and Pleasington GC.

The cluster provides great value for money, as well as a rich variety of golfing experiences.
