Thank you for joining Burnley Leisure & Culture
at Towneley Golf Course. All aspects of your
membership are covered on this page.

Course and Facilities

The stunning surroundings of Towneley Golf take some beating. Set within the beautiful mature woodlands and grounds of Towneley Park, Burnley, we have a challenging 18-hole course for golfers of all abilities, and a hidden gem of an 18-hole par 3 pitch and putt course.

Our well stocked golf shop now includes a bar serving hot drinks, snacks, draught, and bottled beers that can be enjoyed in our members’ lounge or extensive outside seating area.

Upstairs, the 197 Bistro & Bar is a perfect destination for breakfast, lunch and drinks and is open for all to enjoy throughout the week. It can also be hired for private events.

Towneley Golf Course is located on Todmorden Road in Burnley; the entrance to the car park is on a blind bend. Please drive slowly on entry, as it is likely there will be people walking, with this being one of the main entrances to the park.

Car Parking

The car park is free for all golfers to use, and you don’t need to pay & display. However, we do ask that all cars are parked inside a designated bay; parking on the entrance road or outside of a bay may result in a fixed penalty fine. Additional parking can be found in the lay-by on Todmorden Road.


On arrival, please sign in at the golf shop, ideally 20 minutes prior to your tee time, where our friendly staff will welcome you. If you have not paid your green fees in advance, payment will be due prior to your round. We do ask that all players try to arrive in good time to avoid any backlogs on the course.

Food & Drinks

If you haven’t already eaten or had drinks beforehand, you’re in for a treat. The 197 Bistro & Bar is located on the first floor of the golf club where we serve some amazingly delicious dishes, alongside some golfers’ favourite treats.

If you are planning on eating with us before, after, or both, then we do advise booking your table by calling 01282 451636 or emailing

Serving Hours

Wednesday to Friday 9am-2.30pm
Saturday & Sunday (last orders 3pm) 9am-3.30pm

In our golf shop, we also have a fully stocked bar and sell the Burnley famous Haffner’s Pies, which can be reserved for when you’ve played your first 9 holes.

Book a Table

On the Course

We politely ask that all golfers repair their divots, pitch marks, and try as best as possible to play at a reasonable pace of play. Depending on the number of people playing in your group, your round of golf will take around three and a half to four hours (this may vary).

The course itself is split into two nines, with the 9th hole bringing you back next to the golf shop where you can purchase some snacks or extra balls if you are having a bad day!

We endeavour to ensure that you and your party have an enjoyable and successful day and, if there is anything you feel we might be able to do to help, please do not hesitate to let us know.

We look forward to seeing you.
