Course Guide - A hole by Hole View
Our 18 hole par 54 course has a Standard Scratch Score (SSS) of 53 off the general play tees (yellow) but maybe the course is not as easy as the card suggests?
Many golf courses attract a variety of wildlife and Broughton Heath is no exception. From Bees, Butterflies and Damselflies to Green Woodpeckers, Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Falcons and of course our emblem the Curlew. These along with other species can sometimes been seen while enjoying your round of golf.
