What we say
Whilst originally situated several miles closer to the centre of Manchester, Blackley has occupied its present site since 1937 following the acquisition of the original course by Manchester City Council. The current Club House, formally White Moss Farm, dates from the turn of the Century.
Members of note during the Clubs history include the late Bob Garner, a local man who enjoyed some success on the professional golf circuit of the day. One of his highlights was actually leading the Open Field after day one of the 1952 Championship played at Royal Lytham.
Through Bob many leading professionals of the day played at Blackley, not least being the former Ryder Cup Captain, Dai Rees, who in 1953 played an exhibition match at Blackley.
The greatest challenge the Club has faced over the years has been the reconstruction of the course following the build of the M60 orbital motorway in the ealy 90's.
Over later years further work has been required and under the watchful eye of Gaunt & Marnoch, a second stage of landscaping was introduced which incorporated many of the water features that the course now boasts.
