Lilford Park, Leigh

We are currently looking to install a new 18-hole, free-to-play, disc golf course in Lilford Park!

 We have permission to install the baskets and tees - we're now looking for volunteers to help and funding to get the baskets and tee pads in the ground!

Get Involved!

We've designed a course (our wonderful volunteer Iain has done this single handedly!) and now we're looking for volunteers. 

Our plan is to run open days, gather local support (like we did at Longford Park), run some installation days and get some funding. Manchester Disc Golf will help seed the course but we'd love a local splinter group to take ownership and build the community. 

 

What's Happened so far?

 We've:

  • Got initial approval to install a course
  • Worked with the local Friends Group to begin to gather support
  • Run an open day with more planned this summer
  • Installed 3 test baskets 
  • Installed 3 tee pads using volunteer labour from Manchester Disc Golf

 

What's Next?

  • We're looking for funding to pay for 18 permanent baskets, signage and materials to build tee pads.
  • We're going to establish a local group to help grow the support in the local area and take ownership of the course
  • We're going to run more open days to raise awareness.

 

How can I Help?

Come join us at an open day or one of our volunteer labour days. 

Our next Open Day is April 27th 11am - 5pm for more details see our Facebook event

Or - email us at info@manchesterdiscgolf.co.uk and we'll add you to our mailings.

Three Playable Test Holes

There are currently three test baskets in place and three tee pads. These are mostly the "green" tee positions for beginners. You can play these now - the picture below shows the position and the playable paths are marked. We're hoping to get full funding to put all 18 baskets with a red and blue tee position for all along with an 9-hole beginner friendly course too!

Upcoming Open Day!

We have our next open day 27th April, 11am - 5pm for more details see our Facebook event

9 Fully playable holes will be in place (using portable baksets). Click here for a course map of the temporary course

How to get to Lilford Park

Remember there are only 3 test baskets in the ground at the moment so it might not be worth a long journey unless we're running an open day with extra portable baskets to make a playable course. 

Public Transport

The guided busway runs right past the park (and close to some of our proposed holes!). Take the V1 from Manchester Piccadilly to the park! 

Parking

Free parking is available at the entrance of the park.

Just head for the entrance just off Elmridget off The Avenue (follow the signs for Lilford Park, postcode WN7 1JE).
