Herons' Reach Golf Resort


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Herons' Reach Golf Resort: With an onsite hotel (formerly part of the De Vere Hotels collection) Herons' Reach offers a Stay&Play golf opportunity just outside Blackpool, one of England's best known seaside resort towns.

Although set in a 236-acre lakes and parkland estate, this Peter Alliss/Clive Clark design has a distinctly open, almost links-style feel. Woven into the nicely landscaped, but not overly undulating terrain, you'll need to avoid ten small lakes and a mass of grass-fronted bunkering. Often tightish fairways lead you to the USGA specification greens, home to many subtle breaks and borrows.

Located just 3 miles from Blackpool's town centre, the famous Blackpool Tower can be seen at various points of the course, with the best view at the 14th hole. Numerous PGA North Region Championship events have been staged on the course over the past decade.

Did you know?

The seaside town of Blackpool is renowned for its dependence on tourism. In its heyday, which stretched from the early 1900s through to the late 1950s, Blackpool boomed as the workers of England's industrial north flocked there en masse for their summer holidays. Today Blackpool remains the most popular seaside resort in the UK, although many visitors stay for weekends rather than holidaying for a full week. Reputedly, the town still has more hotel and B&B beds than the whole of Portugal.
