What the club says: The splendid nine-hole course at Backworth golf club is set upon some fine, gently undulating parkland that enhances the challenge of playing there considerably. It is an extremely well maintained course, diligently and meticulously tended to by its dedicated greenkeeping staff and features many challenging holes, with natural hazards utilised to their full extent making a course to delight and excite every level of golfer.

Great starter course
This nine hole course is great for a mid week warm up or for those new to golf. The undulating fairways are wide but there are plenty of bunkers to keep the more established players honest. The club offers a turn up and play policy which makes it idea for a last minute round.

A well established very welcoming 9 hole course. The course was generally in good condition with only the last fairway being a little patchy in places. The greens were very good and true. It is a very pleasant little parkland set up. Although compact it has a good balance of wide fairways and tighter tee shots. The par 3's are very nicely set out, although very much on the short side. All those around the course were very friendly. Come here if you want an enjoyable round without any airs and graces.

The splendid nine-hole course at Backworth golf club is set upon some fine, gently undulating parkland that enhances the challenge of playing there considerably. It is an extremely well maintained course, diligently and meticulously tended to by its dedicated greenkeeping staff and features many challenging holes, with natural hazards utilised to their full extent making a course to delight and excite every level of golfer. Although it is reasonably short, measuring only 5800 yards from the tee on the first hole to the pin on the eighteenth, the par of 71 is a good indication that it is not to be taken lightly. Those in search of a challenging, enjoyable round of golf will find much here to satisfy their wants without intimidating them.
