What the club says: A full eighteen hole true Championship Course of 6,835 yards (par 70 S.S.S. 74). There are however, none of the modern water hazards but ninety four bunkers and long carries over masses of heather. It is a great challenge and a very well kept course.

Played here on Monday 31st July. Remains as one of the best courses I've ever played. Course was in superb condition. Greens were lightning quick considering the recent rain. The stretch of long Par 4's on the back 9 are the toughest I've ever played. Can't wait to play here again!

I've played here before and unfortunately since then the course has lost a lot of trees. The layout is very strong, particularly the tough back nine. The greens are big, so you need to know where the flag is to chose the correct club. The fairways were in good condition, the semi rough look simple but was tough to play from. The greens were fairly fast and true. The 18th is a weak hole and looks poor with all the work going on to the right of the hole.

Typical Notts set up, attractive slightly quirky clubhouse, range being rebuilt bit of an eyesore at the minute, practise green and nets though.
Fairly easy walk, lots of very good holes. Has lost a lot of trees so not quite what I was expecting but can't really fault the condition. Last hole was a little bit of a non event, but some good strong par 4's in particular.
Since it's ranked similar to hollinwell on here I will make the comparison, I think it's half a notch behind but still a top, top course.

Played on a lovely November day, bargain at £37.50! Not sure I would pay the full price, but it is a lovely course. You need to be confident and straight off the tee as there is a lot of heather.

A great course with long carries of the tee. Shame it was raining but the course was in great shape, nice putting green and pro shop. A challenging and punishing course. I would like to play again in the dry. 5 star. Top, Top Quality. I know why the SSS is 3 over par.

Amazing course. Although I am wondering when the open is being held there with the rough being that tough.

Lovely heathland course. Was wayward off the tee for most of the day and played a total of 9 shots out of the sand.

Brilliant day and lovely golf course if the heather does not get you plenty of bunkers waiting for your offline shots. The course was in great condition with the greens getting faster by the hour. Good service and welcoming staff, a joy to play here even though my front nine was dismal. Will definitely come back again.

Open competition at Sherwood Forest. First time playing and course is fantastic. Keep out of the heather and gorse and you will do well. Par 3's are stunning especially downhill 4th.

What a course and justifiably in the Top 100 Courses in the UK. 1st visit and what a classy track, oozing quality at every turn. Signed in by a member so £22.50 top value for money. Loved it!
