If you are looking for a top class driving range in the North West, the Hart Common Golf Centre is the place to go. Whether you live in Manchester, Bolton, Wigan or further afield, the driving range is easily accessible from all of the North West and is less than 5 miles from the M61 motorway junction 5.

Located in Westhoughton on the border of Bolton & Wigan, the driving range opened in June 1995 and has grown from strength to strength as both budding and established golfers from throughout the North West have utilised the fantastic facilities on offer to brush up on their skills.

The golf driving range is not the only facility on offer¸ whether they are visiting for the putting green, the academy golf course, the main golf course or for the driving range, Manchester golfers, Bolton golfers and golfers from all over the North West come back time and time again to enjoy the excellent golfing facilities on offer.

Golf Driving Range

Open to golfers of all abilities, the floodlit driving range at Hart Common is open from 9am right through to 8.30pm Monday to Friday, and from 9am to 3.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Golfers come from Manchester, Bolton, Wigan and all over the North West to take advantage of our 27 bay driving range facility. With distance markers (in yards), chipping nets and flags placed around the range, it is the perfect place to warm up before your full round of golf or simply practise your swing.

So whether you live in Manchester, Bolton or anywhere in the North West, why not come and see for yourself the fantastic golfing practice facilities on offer.

The practice green is open whilst it is light (except for essential maintenance) and we ask that appropriate golfing attire is worn whilst on the practice green.

Par 3 Academy Golf Course

The Lancashire Girls section regularly practice on our Academy course as they find it perfect for developing their game and is a fantastic place for any budding golfer to master their skills. Golfers of all abilities, especially beginners, use the academy golf course to help to improve their handicap by getting the chance to practice all the little shots that make all the difference to their golfing prowess.
