The main course at the Golf Centre is a parkland course, boasting spectacular views over the Pennines and surrounding countryside and offers several imposing tee shots. Three lakes in the park, play a prominent part in every round, especially on the 193 yard 11th hole. Being a long par-3 and signature hole to the course, J. H. Taylor designed a challenge for all golfers across a deep water filled ravine, to a raised plateau green. Indeed, former Open Champion, Henry Cotton once described this hole as "the toughest par-3 in England". Peter Allis described the 15th hole as one of the most scenic holes he'd ever seen. Amongst many, famous players Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen.
