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 your feedback and your kind words about the hotel. From the limited understanding I have of maintaining the course the hollow coring of the greens is not scheduled to a to a precise date due to the weather, we are therefore unaware of exactly when it will be carried out and would unable to inform you at the time of booking. We could however have told you sooner, I am sorry for this and will improve our communication to hotel guests regarding course maintenance. I hope you will stay with us again and enjoy the hotel in the near future. Kind regards Chris
