Things to do near Denton Golf Club
When you’ve had enough golf, it’s time for a spot of shopping. Crownpoint Shopping Park is only a mile and a half away, and it’s got almost 30 high street retailers under one roof, from River Island to TK Maxx.
Just four miles from Denton takes you to Werneth Low Country Park. A haven for wildlife, on a clear day there are stunning views over Manchester. Perhaps best-known for its magnificent war memorial, it’s also a popular spot for kite-flying.
Eating and drinking
It wouldn’t be a round of golf without sinking a few in the 19th hole. But if the Club House doesn’t take your fancy, you can always head into Denton to see what’s on offer.
Warm and welcoming and perfect for a post-game drink (or well-earned bacon butty), the Club House has a well-stocked bar, wide-screen TVs and a snooker table, plus a separate room for playing Bridge. Lunch and dinner are served in two large dining areas, and there’s a balcony overlooking the first and last holes.
Denton’s shopping mall has a handful of places in its food court to tempt you. There’s a Costa for a hot sandwich and tasty coffee, or just grab something and go from Gregg’s or McDonald’s. In the mood for something more substantial? Head to Frankie & Benny’s for an Italian-American menu of burgers, pasta or barbecue ribs.
Family-run Benvenuto Ristorante is Denton’s most popular restaurant and it’s easy to see why. With beautiful, home cooked dishes, it’s like a little taste of Italy, where everyone is treated like an old friend and the atmosphere is buzzing. Melt-in-the- mouth veal, tasty pizza and pasta and no request is too much trouble. Bellissimo!
