Cheshire golf course damaged by sledgers


Alderley Edge Golf Club has seen its sloping course wrecked by families visiting to enjoy the recent snowfall.

The course, situated close to Wilmslow and Alderley Edge, is unfortunately popular with sledgers despite them not having permission to use the club’s facilities.

Posting on social media, a club spokesperson said: “Sadly, this is the state of Alderley Edge golf course due to people sledging and snow boarding without permission!

“This has caused a lot of damage and cost to the club and many extra hours from the groundsmen to get the course ready for members and non members once the course is open again!

They added: “Alderley Edge Golf Club is not a sledge track but a golf course!”
