Welcome to the results page for the GBT2024 Bolton Old Links! The sixth event of the GBT2024 tour was nothing short of spectacular. Hosted at the stunning Bolton Old Links, designed by the legendary Alister MacKenzie, this course is renowned for its challenging layout and breathtaking views. Home to the PGA “Lancashire Open,” it provided a fitting stage for our players to showcase their skills.

Event Highlights

Bolton Old Links, with its two contrasting loops of nine, is set in an exposed moorland location. The highest point of the course, the 12th hole, offers magnificent views of four surrounding counties. The course was in pristine condition, featuring beautifully striped fairways, testing rough, and true greens. Despite the strong winds that swept across the course, our players delivered some impressive performances.

Special Mention

A huge thank you to our event sponsors, Teknobu, who put on an excellent prize table and demonstrated their prowess in AI with the Teknobu Tiger. Members had a blast receiving advice on how to tackle Bolton Old Links, adding a fun and interactive element to the day.

Course History and Challenges

Bolton Old Links Golf Club was established as Bolton Golf Club in 1891 and the original members played on a 9-hole course in Green Lane before moving to Smithills five years later. The club name was changed in 1912 when a number of members left to form another golf club.

The course was designed by Alister MacKenzie, and is a challenging and most enjoyable Par-72 layout with only 3 Par 3’s.
