Prestwich, 18 M25 2SW, United Kingdom
This highly-regarded parkland-style course was designed by five-time Open champion and prolific architect J.H. Taylor, and opened in 1911. Over the decades, many regional amateur and professional tournaments have been held here. Three lakes play a prominent part in every round, especially on the 193-yard 11th hole, which three-Open champion Sir Henry Cotton once described as "the toughest par-3 in England." Peter Allis described the 15th hole as one of the most scenic holes he'd ever seen.
The course is owned by Manchester City Council and privately operated.

My favourite public course. The Greens are like velvet.
It's a real test on skill and stamina as it is VERY hilly. NOT for the less mobile player although carts are available.
At the end, you know you've done all 18!
Signature hole 11 is a long par 3 across a forrest, and 17 it the most elevated green I know.
