Golf Activities

We offer a number of ‘tee-riffic’ golfing activities here at BLC Group!

Towneley Park’s picturesque Pitch and Putt has been a popular attraction for over 50 years, and it’s perfect for juniors, golf novices and fun-seeking families.

Or you can bring along family and friends (along with your competitive spirit) to tackle the twists, turns, slopes and bridges of their beautifully landscaped mini golf course, inspired by holes from around the world.

And remember to ‘swing’ by the 197 Bistro for a perfect post-golf meal and pint!
