To ensure your day of golf with us is above par, we have put together some useful information for when you arrive.

Please take a moment to check your booking details, which are in the confirmation email. If any of the details are incorrect or change before your visit, please let us know.

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.


Payment & Cancellation

Payment is due on arrival and green fees start from £13 per player. If you are unable to make your tee time, we do ask that you cancel via phone or email.

Equipment Hire/Golf Shop

We have four PowaKaddy golf trolleys with GPS, for hire at a cost of £8. These can be pre-booked by contacting the golf shop. Please note, we don’t hire out golf clubs for the 18-hole course.

We have a fully stocked golf shop and have a wide range of items, including Adidas Golf, Srixon, FootJoy, Titleist, and more – you might even find a great ‘product of the month’ special offer on!

Changing Facilities & Toilets

Changing rooms are available in the clubhouse and the code for the doors will be available from the golf shop staff. Please note that we don’t have toilet facilities on the course.

Practice Facilities

All practice facilities are free to use. We have two practice nets, a putting green near the 1st tee and a short game area with bunker, which is located down the side of the 18th hole. Please note that golf balls are not provided.

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.
