Want To Know More?

"We are a group of local volunteers with a passion for Haigh Woodland Park. We’ve restored and continue to run the highly popular Crazy Golf. We have put on regular events each year with the assistance of Wigan Council and Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles.

We’re involved in a long term project to restore the Swan Pond and make it an educational area and a place to relax. We have created a bird feeding area and planned wildlife/nature garden adjoining the small car park. If you care about this park and its amenities then come and join us. We need your skills, support and enthusiasm to ensure that this park is loved and enjoyed for generations to come. It costs nothing to join us."

The Crazy Golf

Soon to feature in an American book on mini-golf all over the world, our course has been described as one of the best in the country run by volunteers, and by far the cheapest!

Open from 11am - 4pm (last round starting) it costs just £1.00 per round and admission's free for under 3's.

All monies raised go back into the maintenance and development of the course, and towards on-site projects such as renovating and re-siting Dotty the metal train. We have also purchased 2 more swings for the Children's playground.

Our Community

We have worked hard alongside the Council and Inspiring Healthy Livestyles to put Haigh Woodland Park back on the map. We want to continue to keep things affordable and enjoyable for everybody by hosting free events and providing low cost activities. We have funded an additional 2 swings in the children's playground, and renovated and re-positioned "Dotty" the well-loved metal train.

For several days during the "season" charities and community groups are each invited to run the Crazy Golf, with all that day's proceeds being donated to their respective cause.

We are also indebted to our friends at Skils cic who enthusiastically run the crazy golf twice a week during the school holidays.

Council staff now have the option of volunteering for 2 days of the year, and many have helped us on the golf, maintaining our dedicated bird feeding area by the small car park and giving general assistance with gardening and painting for example.

We have ALSO been able to make donations to good causes, via the Mayor's Charity and those chosen by Wigan Tesco, who very kindly give us a space for our monthly meetings.
