Because of lockdown rules closing golf courses, Manchester golf course management have opened up the course for the general public to walk around. A splendid idea.
I have never been on the course before and i never realised just how big it was or how wonderful it is to walk around it. It was well worth doing and we clocked up just over 7km.
We started off walking down the Rochdale canal before joining the slip road into the course. The Canada geese were very friendly.
The Course club house which now includes the Nineteenth Hole has lots of Ancient History and was originally called Hopwood Cottage and was part of the Hopwood Hall estates which date back to the 12 century, it had a boating lake with a boat house and a very unique ice house. These still exist today.
