Davenport Golf Club’s Social Side

Arnold’s (Palmer) place in history will be as the man who took golf from being a game for the few to a sport for the masses. He was the catalyst who made that happen.

Keep your sense of humour. There’s enough stress in the rest of your life not to let bad shots ruin a game you’re supposed to enjoy.

Golf is social; it brings a lot of people together.

To take from what Jack Nicklaus said when praising Arnold Palmer (above), golf is a sport – or a game – for everyone

Regardless of who you are or where you live, no matter your profession or business success, whether you’re a junior or a senior member, golf is for all of us. Whether pro, playing off single figures, or Phantom of the Open standard, we're all equal once we’re in the clubhouse. The 19th hole is a great leveller.

This is especially the case here at Davenport Golf Club. Whilst we’d never pretend that the social side is more important than the game itself, we take our social activities seriously.

With our well-appointed clubhouse and bar, our well-stocked bar and our, well, superb hospitality team, we’re VERY well set up for socials. What better way to get to know your fellow members and become an integral part of the club?

There’s always room for social events at Davenport Golf Club; we’d welcome ideas and suggestions – as well as any organisational expertise and time.

The social calendar at Davenport Golf Club brings plenty of opportunities to nurture that sense of humour and alleviate stress.

General Social Events

Join us for a variety of social events, including Steak Nights, Quiz Nights, and Summer Barbecues. Don’t miss out on our special occasions, such as entertaining performances by specially selected local artists.

Quiz Nights

We all love our quiz nights – which include a hearty hot pot or curry supper, followed by a delectable dessert. We host those quiz nights a few times a year, so start revising your Trivial Pursuits or watch the Chase. We’re not saying it’s competitive but…

Steak Nights

There are regular ‘Steak Nights managed by our resident Chief Craig.’


The end-of-season presentation evening for the members takes place in the autumn. This is a magnificent night, featuring the presentation of the major awards, following which there’s a sumptuous meal and an entertaining after-dinner speaker.


During the winter months (October to March), there is Duplicate Bridge on Wednesday afternoons which is open to all members. Matches are arranged with other local Golf Clubs, usually on Friday afternoons.

Indoor Bowls

A relatively recent addition, DGC golfing members can now participate in Indoor Short Mat Bowling as part of their membership. Bowling also takes place from October through March in the main clubhouse lounge.

The Club now has five bowling teams, playing league and cup matches in the Stockport Metro League.

For the less experienced bowlers, we also have social bowling evenings with a friendly, drawn competition. Several of our members bowl regularly and new members are welcome to come along and try their hands, too.

The Perfect Cheshire Event Venue

As well as members’ social events, members and guests alike choose to hold their own special events here at Davenport Golf Club. Members know exactly how superb our hospitality and catering are. You want your event to be the best, so you want the best function room in Cheshire. Ours is the perfect event venue in the ideal setting. Lush parkland with beautiful views, what more could the perfect party need?

Our proximity to Poynton centre makes access easy, taxis are plentiful, and there’s an abundance of excellent hotels nearby. Our car park accommodates 100 cars, and we’re just a few miles away from Stockport and Macclesfield.

What better way to smell the metaphorical roses on that fairway of life, than by enjoying time with friends and relaxing in idyllic surroundings?

Davenport Golf Club has it all. Join now and discover it for yourself.
