The Manchester Club is the home of Golf and Tennis in Mandeville, and being almost in the centre of the town, it is also a popular social meeting place. The golf course is a lovely, scenic and challenging 9 hole course that I can highly recommend having played it for many years. Quite simply there is not a bad hole on the course, and being over 2000 ft above sea level the climate is cool and ideal for golf.
The stone walls marking the boundary of the course come into play on almost every hole, and the small greens are well bunkered, with blind shots into several of them.
Their signature hole is the hole that used to be the 4th hole, a shortish par 4 known as the Bamboo hole. It became the 1st hole when the old clubouse was sold and a new clubhouse was built in the middle of the course.
a slightly elevated tee you look down the fairway towards two large
clumps of Bamboo, with a small and narrow hollow in between. The other side of this hollow, in between the two clumps of Bamboo, is the small green.
The hollow is the target for your drive, but it has to be very accurate, or else you are in the middle of the bamboos. Play short, and you have to carry up and over the bamboos, which overhang the green.
Their Golf Week, held in the summer every year, is the highlight of their golfing calendar.
It is a private members club, but visitors are always welcome, and you will find the atmosphere in the club very friendly.
