A par 71 course on two levels with the second, seventh and 12th tees overlooking and driving onto the lower levels. Bounded by the railway on one side and the River Dee on the other, the course offers a challenge to all levels of golfer. Two thousand trees, planted in the 1970's and representing more than 100 varieties, line the fairways, offering a variety and challenge seldom seen elsewhere. The established greens are challenging with subtle dips and curves that have fooled many a golfer. Well known throughout the north for the quality of its greens and fairways, Chester has a characteristic beauty both in summer and winter. During the summer the club hosts a a variety of County and other matches including in the past few years a qualifying round for the North West Seniors Amateur Open as well as hosting some Atour matches.
