About the Club

Didsbury Golf Club was founded as a nine-hole course on land near the local railway station in 1891. The front room of the stationmaster's house became its first clubhouse until 1901 when it moved to its present 18 hole site alongside the River Mersey.

Over the years the course has changed significantly.  In 1921, the world renowned golf architect C.A. Mackenzie, famous for his terraced greens, was employed to redesign several holes. In 1973 the whole course was redesigned after the Manchester ring road, the M60 bisected the land.

Former Ryder Cup golfers, Peter Allis, now the voice of golf on television, and his partner Dave Thomas were the architects who produced the new course, which, with a few modifications, is that played today.

The River Mersey borders the course on three sides and has played a major part in the club's history, once or twice having threatened the club's existence with broken banks flooding the course and clubhouse in places up to seven feet deep.

Major bank strengthening work by the River Board has certainly improved the flooding problems but we still suffer to a lesser extent, like all our younger neighbouring golf clubs sited downstream on each side of the river.

Directions

Leave the M6 at Junction 19 immediately after Knutsford services, take A556 to Altrincham (approx 5 miles).
In Altrincham turn right at traffic lights on to A560 to Stockport (Cresta Court Hotel on the Junction).
After approx 3 miles you reach the flyover at end of M56.
At roundabout under flyover turn left on to slip road as though to join A5103 (Princess Parkway to Manchester), keep in the left hand lane and leave in 400 yards at B5166 (signed Sale Moor and Northenden).
Turn right to Northenden village passing under the A5103 and the Britannia Airport Hotel is then immediately on your left.
Continuing along this road you will see a TESCO on the left, turn immediately right opposite the TESCO onto Church Road.
After approximately 300 yards there is a Pub called the The Church Inn on the left and the road forks in that direction.
Take the left fork (Ford Lane) and follow the lane by the river for just over half a mile.
