Where2Golf says: 

Sandiway Golf Club: Located in the heart of Cheshire, the wooded heathland layout at Sandiway is one of those wonderfully old, established, classic English courses that will challenge and delight the visiting golfer in equal measure. Sometimes described as `The Wentworth of the North' it is certainly a jewel in the Cheshire golfing crown (together with its near neighbour, Delamere Forest GC). Sandiway's pleasantly undulating and relatively generous fairways are lined with plenty of oak, beech and birch. A few blind tee shots, some elevated greens and others tucked down in hollows ensures a constant variety of golfing challenges on the course. The picturesque back-nine offers unrivalled views of Petty Pool, an old Cheshire mere (small lake), which forms a beautiful backdrop, particularly on the 11th and 12th holes. Although small by modern standards, the greens are generally of excellent quality, as you'd expect of a course that regularly hosts all manner of top-level amateur tournaments. The only thing likely to disturb your concentration here at Sandiway is the constant chatter of the abundant local birdlife.
