THE COURSE The Home of Golf on the Fylde Coast Designed and opened in 1925 by the famous golf course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie, who also designed such well known Courses as Royal Melbourne, Cypress Point and Augusta National. Blackpool Park is in esteemed company. Club History The course has always been run as a municipal facility by Blackpool Borough Council and the private members club attached to the course provides clubhouse facilities as well as a comprehensive golf programme throughout the year. Numbers peaked in the 1970's when the course was amongst the busiest in the country with over 77,000 rounds per year played there. Course Stats Tee White / Par 70 / 6048 Yards Tee Yellow / Par 70 / 5763 Yards Tee Red / Par 71 / 5188 Yards A thoroughly enjoyable test of golf for all abilities Stanley Park Golf Course is an undulating parkland layout with a variety of natural hazards such as dykes and grassy pits to negotiate as well as the carefully placed bunkers. Not the longest layout but a challenging Par 70 with only two par 5 holes. Architect Alister MacKenzie has certainly produced a course requiring thought as well as skill to compile a good score.
