About Us
Stand Golf Club was founded in 1904, and has been welcoming visitors and newcomers for over 110 years. We are located 6 miles north of Manchester and less than a mile from the M60/M62. The Whitefield Metrolink stop (Manchester-Bury line) is within easy walking distance, only half a mile from the clubhouse.

Our course is reputed to be one of the finest in the area. The good drainage offered by the sand sub-soil means that the course is playable all year round. When other courses are forced to close for inclement weather, Stand usually remains open. The 6334 yards (Par 72, SSS 71) is a fine test of golf for all standards of player. We have good practice facilities, two nets, chipping green and putting green near the first tee.


Mark Hancock - PGA Professional
I took up the game at the age of 15 and turned professional in 1999. Whilst my first jobs wereat Northenden Golf Club and then Kendal Golf Club, a 12 month break saw me travel round Australia. When I returned I became the assistant professional at Withington Golf Club. I soon moved back to his home club of Stand in Whitefield where he explored the playing side of the game winning 3 times in 2008. I tried to qualify for both the European Tour and the Sunshine Tour in South Africa shortly after. Thereafter I was head assistant professional at Bolton Old Links GC. A stint at Cheadle Golf Club as head professional prepared me for another return to my home club as Head Professaional of Stand Golf Club.
