Romiley Golf Club is renowned for having one of the finest course layouts in the North West. Situated in the Cheshire countryside, and just a stones throw from the Derbyshire hills and its surrounding Peak District National park, each shot taken affords the golfer fantastic views of the area and as far as the Welsh mountains to the west.
With a Par of 70, and a challenging 6,355 yards of tree lined fairways and strategically placed bunkers, this is a true test of a golfers abilities and course management.
Designed in a traditional '2 loops' of 9, the clubhouse, or the half way hut, allow refreshments to be taken on board as and when required, meaning there's no excuse for dropping of energy levels.
Consisting of 4 par 3's, 2 par fives and 12 par 4's, 5 of which are over 400 yards in length, Romiley will ensure the golfer uses all the clubs in the bag and a whole array of different shot types throughout their round.

Hole 1 - Par 4
The opening hole at Romiley requires you to have warmed up correctly as, at over 400 yards, you need to be on form straight away. With trees left, a hidden grassy depression together with out of bounds to the right, the only way to play your opening tee shot is straight!
The marker post can be seen in the centre of the fairway and is the line to aim for for most golfers. Longer hitters can stay further right of the post however there is a deep grassy depression of rough to avoid here.
With all the trouble towards the front of the green, your approach should play one club more than normal to avoid the 2 front greenside bunkers.
A shot to the left centre of the green is favoured due to the green sloping from front left to back right.
Hole 10 - Par 5
The start of the back nine gives us the courses 2nd, and last, par 5, and it's a great birdie opportunity.
As with all holes at Romiley, the tee shot is key as the fairway is lined heavily by trees on both sides. Get a good shot away however and a birdie is yours for the taking.
A straight away hole is best dealt with by a tee shot left of centre which leaves an inviting 2nd shot to try and get to the green in 2.
A couple of fairway bunkers shouldn't interfere with your play and once on the green, entered through a slight rise at the front, it is one of the flattest on the course.
The green has a slight left to right slope but not one that should deceive too much. Fingers crossed for the birdie but par is easily attainable.
