Carrick Foundation Golf Day

Every year I look forward to hosting the Foundation’s Golf Day at Prestbury Golf Club.

Stuart and the team are always so professional and friendly, and Richard and Claire always put on a fantastic spread.
Everyone always comments on the high standards at the club, and we cannot thank the team enough for all of their support. We’re looking forward to next year already.

East Cheshire Hospice *

Richard has been looking after the East Cheshire Hospice Charity Golf Day for the past 7 years. He and his team do a marvelous job every year and it is very much appreciated, contributing to making a memorable day for all concerned.*

Approximately 110 people sit down to a three course dinner with us each year, and the Menu, food and service, has always been exceptional.

Richard and the Team help make everyone’s day and all enjoy the food and service in the clubhouse.

Our event is over-subscribed as a consequence and grows from strength to strength. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Richard and his team to you if you are looking to host an event at the Golf Club.

King School Golf Day*

The King’s School have held our annual Alan McInnes Bursary Golf Day at Prestbury Golf Club for the past four years. We are continually impressed and delighted not just with the course itself, which is stunning, but also with the professionalism of all the team members, the smooth organisation, the excellent food and the little touches that make the day a success. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at PGC.

Society Golf Day

Dear Neil, Richard and Jane*

I just wanted to say a big thank you to all you folks at Prestbury Golf Club for a fantastic day. The day could not have gone any better; very welcoming, very well organized, course in superb condition, food was top drawer and I realize that you don’t have too much control on the weather but we could not have asked for a sunnier and warmer day – like playing golf on the Costa's but with proper food !!!

Everybody from Worsley Park commented that it was one of the best golf days out that they have had.
