Testimonials for Northenden Golf Club
Please accept our very many thanks on behalf of myself, my family and our friends: The reception for my Dad’s funeral on Saturday was perfectly fitting and managed both professionally and tactfully under the circumstances by your superb staff.
The function suite was ideal - we loved the modern room, balcony, views and discrete Christmas decorations. The environment certainly helped engender the warm and welcoming atmosphere felt by all. The staff were helpful, friendly but very appropriately understated which we appreciated.
The food was spot on - the right amount and delicious. My Dad was a marketing manager for the Coop chilled foods department and pies were one of his many products - his colleagues assured me that my Dad would have been quite delighted with the steak and ale pie and believe me, that is quite an accolade!
Thank you too for your time and patience in helping us to organise such a fitting reception at such short notice and under these circumstances.
With many thanks and warmest wishes,
Christmas Lunch Party
Good morning Northenden Golf Club. Just to say we had a lovely time yesterday - things have really improved with your brand new clubhouse since our first visit years ago. Great Christmas decorations and excellent service and food. Please thank your staff again for me.

50th Birthday Party
Just wanted to say a big thank-you to you and all the staff for making my 50th a great event. Everybody enjoyed it immensely. The venue is lovely and the staff were really helpful, friendly and welcoming. Please pass on my heartfelt thanks to all the staff who contributed.
We recently spent an afternoon at Northenden Golf Club after a family bereavement. All the NGC team were a pleasure to deal with. The club was recently rebuilt and is a very attractive and high quality venue. The function room is superb with views over the golf course along the whole of one side of the room through glass doors which allow access to a balcony outside – all our guests commented on how impressive it was. The hot meals served were fantastic and all the staff were very courteous mindful of the nature of the function, but also friendly and happy to assist.
North Cheshire Serra Annual Dinner
Earlier this month North Cheshire Serra Club held our Annual Charter Night Dinner at your Golf Club. All your staff were most helpful with the arrangements and the meal was excellent. Everybody enjoyed the evening.

Manchester Irish Language Group
Wyresdale Golf Society
Had a great day today . We had a 20 turnout, the breakfast was top and your staff really looked after us. The weather held up which was lucky, and the course was in good nick for this time of year. I will be booking for next year June or July - will confirm January at the latest. I think we will have a better turn out next time, probably 24 plus.
Thanks again for all your help
Mike Axford - Society Organiser
Northern Golf Society
Many thanks to all at Northenden.
Our 12th consecutive year and always considered a highlight of the Calendar.
Although we usually play in early summer this year was mid October and the course
proved to be as good as usual.
The warm welcome by the Society organiser the wonderful course and the great and plentiful food after guaranteed we booked for next year on the spot.
Woolton Golf Club
A big thank you to all at Northenden GC for making our visit such a memorable one. The course was in great condition and the food and general hospitality first class. We were met and greeted and made most welcome and the visit went without a hitch. In all it proved to be an an excellent experience from all at Woolton GC, Liverpool and one to be repeated next year.
Cargill Golf Society
Nice to see you all again yesterday. Many thanks for the warm welcome with the message on your TV screen in reception. Once again I cannot praise you and your staff enough for the excellent service in the clubhouse and superb condition of the golf course. All comments from the lads were complimentary and positive. No doubt we will be back for another visit (we`d be foolish not to) and it was mentioned that Northenden should be a regular event in our calendar.
Ian Simpson - Society Organiser
Charity Golf Day
On behalf of the Rotary Club and the three charities - Help for Heroes, Prostate Cancer and Rotary - a huge thank you to Northenden Golf Club.
Special thanks also to all those golfers who braved monsoon conditions on what must have been the worst day of the year to play Golf, and we are not forgetting Steve and Phil who stood out in the rain to start everybody off. An event this size needs planning and organising and we are indebted to Terry Tivenan for all her hard work in the lead up to the day, on behalf of the Golf Club, to make the day possible and the Rotary Club appreciate her help.
On the day, Gay James, Joan Birchall and Bridget Hopkins from the Ladies Section made the day run smoothly alongside Roy Moore who juggled with cards and such arcane procedures, as keeping score, to finally give us the winners. It was a pleasure to sit back and watch, in the dry.
The Rotary Club also thank all those who donated to the raffle and who made individual donations to the charities. We don’t yet have a final figure, no doubt Lady Captain Kate, who is also a member of Rotary, will keep you all informed.
Once again, a big thank you to all at Northenden Golf Club for hosting and magnificently supporting this event, and before we forget, the steak pie at the end of the day was superb.
Rotary Club of Stockport Lamplighter Charity Golf Day
Association of North West Golf Club Stewards
The members of the Association have asked me to write to pass on our gratitude to all at NGC for our day with you on 17 September. As Chairman Steve said he chose NGC as he trusted you to provide a first-class venue for our annual Chairman’s Day, and certainly he was wise in his choice.
Many noted how good the food was and with Will and Carolyn in the kitchen we have always experienced consistently high-quality catering on our annual visits. Paul and the bar team provided a smooth and effective bar service throughout the day which was always appreciated. NGC has bounced back from the tragic fire and we hope that in the near future a representative of the club may look to join our Association.
Thank you again John and we look forward to returning to NGC in the 2019 season.
Thank you to everyone for all your help with organising our party. We had a lovely evening. Please extend our thanks to all the staff who helped that evening. The buffet was hugely appreciated by all our guests.
I wish to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of my wife and family for all your help with the preparations for our wedding. From the very beginning you were on hand answering all our questions, and offering your experience with anything we were unsure of - even being present until the evening of our big day to make sure all ran smoothly.
The room looked amazing and the outlook over the golf course is fantastic. Our guests commented on how good all three courses of the meal were - as well as the evening buffet. All your staff were friendly and willing to assist in any way they could.
The day could not have gone any better, and I would recommend Northenden Golf Club to anybody looking for a wedding venue.
Thank you again
Stephen Davidson - Bridegroom
Just a quick note to say thank you for Sunday. We had a great day and everybody really enjoyed the reception at Northenden. The food and service were excellent. It’s also a really good space with lots of light on a dreary day! I’m sure we will use the space again in the future.
Thanks for all your help.

With plenty of preparing to do to make sure the golf day runs as smoothly as possible, I found the cooperation from the golf club to be exceptional. All the NGC team helped with planning the best location for the sponsors' banners so they got the best exposure and they also contributed with competition ideas. The hospitality and catering staff exceeded expectations.
Thank you to all the team and the golf club - we look forward to holding our event with you again next year.
Zac Bagwell - Golf Day Organiser
Dudson Golf Society
All the Dudson members were very complimentary following our visit.
The course was obviously affected by the recent drought as all courses have been, but they commented on the quality of the greens. The breakfast was excellent and the welcome and attention from all the staff was lovely.
Thank you for looking after us so well.
Ervin Davis - Secretary

We recently held our company summer party at the golf club. John was really helpful with the planning of the event from the initial enquiry through to the actual event.
The room is a brilliant, bright, versatile space and with great views of the beautiful golf course.
Our event ran smoothly and the food was delicious. The team on the night were really helpful and accommodating. All our staff commented on what a great evening it was.
We would highly recommend this venue for lots of events.
Everything went very well, thank you. Having spoken with my colleague Anita and the other delegates, their feedback regarding your location: clubhouse; room; views; facilities; services and food was an overwhelming “fantastic”.
Intersolia will be very happy to recommend NGC to others who may be considering holding an event in your area.

North West Amateur Seniors Tour
I run the North West Amateur Seniors Tour and Northenden Golf Club have been kind enough to host us on five occasions. Every time we play, everyone comments on how great the course is and in superb condition. One said this time that the greens were the best we have played on this season. The staff are lovely and can't do enough to help with all your requirements. The clubhouse is fantastic as is the catering.
A great day to be had by all - keep it up !!
Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the golf club for sorting out my wife’s birthday party. All of your staff were really attentive and many guests commented that the buffet was of exceptional quality. We were very lucky with the weather and it was great to be able to sit out on the balcony enjoying the spectacular views over the golf course. A fantastic time was had by all and we would not hesitate to return to the club for similar events in the future.
Integrity Golf Lodge
From the moment I picked up the phone to discuss the booking the club could not have been more helpful. Lisa in the office was more than helpful and when we spoke I could see you had it all in hand.
On the day your introduction to the society was very helpful and well received - plus your help in sorting out holes for prizes was most appreciated. The course was in superb condition and last but not least the catering was superb and your colleagues could not have been more helpful both for breakfast and lunch.

We had a fantastic night and everybody said how amazing the room and food were. I would like to say that Will on the bar was fantastic and worked so hard - he really was amazing!!!! We will pop him some chocolates in to show our appreciation.
Hospitality Action Charity Golf Day
We held our annual golf day at Northenden Golf Club this year, and from the outset in respect of the ease of enquiry to the booking, the professionalism and helpfulness were evident. The rate given to us was affordable and good value for money.
On the day, the standard of the facilities was second to none. The function room was laid out perfectly. Table cloths were being ironed as we arrived, bowls of rhododendrons from the course added a huge amount of colour to the tables, a lovely touch.
The course was in great shape and played beautifully. The food and drink service was excellent, everything freshly cooked, plentiful and served by Will, Carolyn and their colleagues. Roy on the registration desk was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble for the whole team, and special thanks go to John and Lisa. We will definitely return.
Kevin Haygarth - Chairman, Hospitality Action, Northern Board
Fox Golf Society
Thank you for letting the Fox Golf Society play at Northenden Golf Club. On arrival our reception was exceptional, very friendly and informative. All your members were friendly as well and went out of their way to say hello or make a comment on how well dressed some of our members were. The golf course is in very good condition with some testing holes. After the golf we all ate the steak and ale pie, chips and peas. Every one of us enjoyed it - and the fantastic service. All in all our visit was perfect. As a society we would recommend your golf club to anyone.
Thank you to Northenden Golf Club for being the perfect venue for my sister Karen's funeral wake on 8th May 2018. The staff were professional and courteous and the food delicious and quality. At such a sensitive time I felt that we were really in good hands. We were very fortunate in having a lovely sunny day and able to make full use of the wonderful patio area overlooking the course. Thanks again, I would recommend without hesitation.
St Joseph's Scool PTA
For the second year running, St Joseph's School PTA held our Spring Dance at Northenden Golf Club and again the night was a wonderful success. The room itself is stunning, with a bright, modern interior and, of course, amazing views over the golf course. John and Carolyn were both an enormous help in the planning of our event and on the night itself did an amazing job, with their team, to put on a very enjoyable, successful evening. The room looked amazing, the quality of the food and service were commented on by many of the guests and everything went very smoothly. We hope to return to Northenden Golf Club again in the future and would highly recommend it as a venue for any event.

Surprise 50th Birthday Party
We can't thank everyone enough at Northenden Golf Club for helping us arrange my dad's surprise 50th birthday party. You ensured that what could have been a stressful time was carried out with ease, right down to visiting the venue, ordering of the food, including gluten free options, and to the delivery of the event on the night.
The venue was perfect for this event, the food was delicious and the staff were extremely welcoming and accommodating. I can definitely recommend this venue to future customers who are looking for a stylish, clean and welcoming venue. Thank you again for all you did and we look forward to hopefully booking with you again in the future.
Thanks for all you did for us on Sunday. Breakfast was great and really set us up for the day.
The course was great considering all the wet weather we have had recently. Very surprised how fast the greens were - top marks to your green staff.
And I must say you have a very warm and welcoming clubhouse, staff and members.
Thanks again - hope to see you in the summer when we can play the course it at its very best.

It was a real pleasure to see you at the meeting on Thursday - please feel free to join us any time, we are here every week.
Could I take this opportunity to thank you and all the staff at the golf club for your contributions in helping to make not only this very important meeting a great success but every week.
We are sometimes unclear on attendees until very late, usually about 50, but the staff always accommodate us with a smile and great attitude. The group has grown considerably lately and we believe your venue and staff have played their part in that.

Golf Day - Halifax and District Past Rabbit Captains Association
We had an excellent day on Sunday and would like to thank yourself and the rest of the team at Northenden for making the day a great success.
The course was a credit to everyone involved, accepting that recent heavy rains were always going to make conditions underfoot not ideal. That said the greens were as good as any I have played on all year - and I have played many of the best courses in Yorkshire and Cheshire.
Our experience from the initial reservation through to reception on arrival, dining and bar was 10 out of 10.
Staff Away Day
Many thanks to the staff at Northenden for making our all NTC away day such a great experience. The facilities are wonderful, the food was great, and we all appreciated the service we received.
We recently had our daughter's naming ceremony at NGC and we would recommend it to anyone. The room, food and staff were all excellent. We will definitely be having our next event at the club. Special mention to John and Paul who made everything run so smoothly.
Fantastic venue for my 50th birthday party, the location is great, just the right size, nice and modern and it was great to open up the glass doors on the balcony. Catering was superb, everyone enjoyed the food and friendly bar staff. Overall the venue is first class, well organised, great help from John and the team for catering arrangements, with great suggestions for menus. I can’t recommend it highly enough. A pleasure to organise and fantastic to hold an event.
I am writing to extend a massive thank you to all the staff at Northenden Golf Club who worked so hard to make my birthday party a night to remember. Special thanks to Carolyn, Andrea, Will and all the staff behind the scenes.

Your attention to detail and help with all my queries was much appreciated. All the guests were really impressed with the venue. Thanks again to you all.
