Westhoughton is most easily accessible from the M61 motorway. Leave at junction 5, and follow signs to Westhoughton / St Helens / Wigan. i.e. the A58.
After about half a mile along a dual carriageway, you will come to a roundabout. Take the second exit (almost straight ahead) and continue for about 2 miles, through two sets of traffic lights. You can click here for a detailed map to guide you to the Golf Club from this point (yellow route). The road will change from a normal "A" road to a dual carriageway (Cricketers Way) after about 1 mile. As you approach the third set of lights, move to the outside lane and turn right at the T-junction. Go past the Red Lion Hotel and at the traffic lights turn left into School Street. Go to the end of School Street and bear left down the road which leads about half mile to the Golf Club.

From the M6, the route is longer and more complicated. It will take about 20 minutes from leaving the motorway.

Leave the M6 at Junction 22, and follow the signs for Lowton / Leigh. At the end of the country road (farmhouses "pick your own" etc.) is a T-Junction and traffic lights. Turn right.

At the second set of lights, you should be crossing the A580 East Lancs Road (Texaco filling station on the right). Continue for about 3 miles, and just after passing a fire station on your right you will reach a set of traffic lights. Take the inside lane and turn left onto the Leigh Bypass (Atherleigh Way). Continue for about 3 miles.

At the third major set of traffic lights (ignoring pedestrian crossings) turn left (signed Westhoughton / Wigan). This is Lovers Lane. Proceed for about 1/2 mile to the next lights and go "straight" (slightly left then right) through the offset crossroads. Continue for another 2 miles until the next traffic lights. You are now in Westhoughton. Click here for a detailed map which will lead you to the Golf Club from this point (blue, then yellow route).

Turn left at these lights onto a dual carriageway (Cricketers Way) until the next set of lights. Move to the outside lane and turn right at the T-junction. Go past the Red Lion Hotel and at the traffic lights turn left into School Street. Go to the end of School Street and carry on down the road which leads 1/2 mile to the Golf Club.
