Cheshire is a 2-FORE!-1 golfing paradise, boasting nearly 40 courses offering half-price green fees with a 2-FORE!-1 voucher.
Here's just a handful of Cheshire's 2-FORE!-1 finest....
*De Vere Carden Park - With two magnificent 18-hole Championship courses and a De Vere Hotel and Spa, this Cheshire venue has developed into one of the most charismatic golfing destinations in the country.
The Nicklaus course, designed by the great Jack Nicklaus and son Steve, is the slightly longer of the two options (the Cheshire is the other), but it's certainly not a big hitters paradise. Feature holes come thick and fast, and unfortunately so will new golf balls out of your bag since water comes into sight on most holes.
*Shrigley Hall - fine stay and play venue on the edge of the Peak District at the wonderfully named village of Pott Shrigley.
*Mere G&CC - classy James Braid parkland act regarded as the 'Wentworth of the North.'
*De Vere Mottram Hall - two contrasting loops of nine make up a superb test of golf on this Dave Thomas-designed Championship track.
*Dunham Forest G&CC - quality mature parkland track, always in good nick.
