    Coxmoor Golf Club

    Coxmoor Golf Club is a magnificent heathland course, and a must-play course for golfers playing in Nottinghamshire.  Recently accredited by England Golf as a Championship Venue, Coxmoor has been an Open Qualifying course, has held the British Boys Championship, British Seniors Championship and most recently the English Seniors Championship and the Brenda King Foursomes, a prestigious ladies’ senior event.  As part of the Club’s ongoing improvements, the Club have engaged Ken Brown and Ken Moodie to suggest architectural changes that will further enhance this fine course.  The friendly service and great value provided in the Clubhouse, is consistently recognised by all the visitors welcomed to Coxmoor, where the Club assure you of a great day, with golf on a superbly maintained, very interesting and constantly evolving golf course

    Sherwood Forest Golf Club

    Sherwood Forest Golf Club is a long established and highly renowned heathland course alongside the pines, silver birch and oak trees of Clipstone Woods, within the legendary Sherwood Forest.  The Club is very proud of its reputation as one of the oldest and finest heathland golf courses in Great Britain and is currently rated 84th best in the British Isles and 35th in England. The course was initially designed by Harry Colt and subsequently enhanced by James Braid.  The English Golf Union, when staging the 2006 England Boy’s Amateur Stroke Play Championships, described Sherwood Forest Golf Club as being ‘in a league of its own’. As a premier course the Club has hosted many national competitions over the years, including the ‘British and English Seniors’ and regional qualifying for the ‘Open Championship’.  A true Championship course of 6,806 yards awaits us with none of the modern water hazards but 98 bunkers of local sand and long carries over punishing swathes of heather.  As a general rule the Club is renowned for its ‘most excellent’ greens and a long, demanding turn for home.

    Worksop Golf Club

    Worksop Golf Club was founded in 1914.  Playable throughout the entire year, the course is regarded as one of the outstanding courses of the area for both difficulty and quality.  It has a long tradition of providing the base for world class golfers including Lee Westwood, Mark Foster, Maurice Bembridge, and David Snell.  Ryder Cup legend, Lee Westwood states “I was proud to see Worksop Golf Club after my name in a multitude of county, national and international events and I can categorically say that without them, their members and my parents, I would not have achieved what I have in the game. My golfing future and an abundance of happy memories were decided and enjoyed there”.  When Lee wrote the foreword for the Top 100 Golf Courses of the British Isles he stated “I always get a thrill each time I tee it up on the 1st, at some of our lesser-known courses as well as our championship venues, but my golfing heart lies at Worksop, a hidden gem if ever there was one”.
