Best Western Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club.

Pay, play and stay in a wonderful countryside setting.

The Best Western Garstang Country Hotel and Golf Club wont just give you easy access to Preston, it'll put you within putting distance of a fantastic 18 hole parkland golf course too!

In addition to well-kept fairways and greens, you'll also have the luxury of great views across the surrounding Lancashire countryside. Within walking distance of Garstang itself, you'll have the chance to enjoy walks without the clubs too, thanks to pleasant riverside routes and the nearby Beacon Fell.

The history of the Best Western Garstang Country Hotel & Golf Club itself is a fascinating one, beginning life as farming land in the 1600s and evolving first into a golf course and now, over 400 years later, a wonderful hotel made in part from bricks salvaged from the Greenhalgh Castle after Oliver Cromwell's forces dismantled it following a siege. Our staff will be delighted to delve further into the past!

Thank you for the review. I have spoken with the green keepers, you are correct the greens were hit with a disease this winter and I am pleased to report this has been succesfully treated. Now the grass is begining to grow they are recovering and improviong each day and expect them to be back the standard you are accustomed to very soon. I am sure by your next visit you will see a marked improvement and hope you can give both the hotel and course a glowing review. Kind regards Chris
