What the club says: Noted for being the oldest golf club in Nottingham, Golf has been played at Bulwell since the 1870s, although the club has only existed in its present state since 1902. Set on mature heath land, it’s noted for its undulating land and has many tight fairways and old trees. Five demanding par 3s increase the challenge of playing the course.

It’s not a long course – measuring 5826 yards from the White tees but it still provides a challenge for even the most competent of golfers. Bulwell Forest Golf Club celebrated its centenary in 2002. And until recently it was a municipal club, but in 2004 the Club negotiated a long term agreement with the City Council.

Had a nice day out, the only thing I would suggest is to improve the signage for each hole as it wasn't clear which tee was the right one on a few occasions. We did use the card but some signs would make it a lot easier.

Good Course! Forces Thinking

Live local to the area so was looking forward to trying, glad to say i was NOT disappointed, great course, well maintained, a really good challenge and a great course for beginners.
Early on you are playing alongside the road, along with the many public footpaths it forces you into playing positional shots rather than just wanging them down the fairway, thinking about where you need to play is a great part of this course and introduces beginners to a new aspect of the game.
The course was rather hilly but not unbearable, playing up to greens was a first for me and threw in a new situation for me (i have always played to a visable green).
The course is quite open but almost all of the fairways are tree lined but are not imposing to play, acold day but my greatest round ever so well happy ????????

A Winter go to Course

A go to course when those all around are ankle deep in mud and frequently closed. Short in length but offering an interesting challenge. Greens were excellent yesterday.

Reviewed Nov 1 2017 by Lee / Heanor - rated 4 out of 5
Being a complete novice of only 6 months this course was ideally suited to me for helping to improve my exposure to 'tactile' golf. A driving range can do only so much.

The greens were in excellent condition and overall the drainage on the entire site is superb.

For a beginner with a terrible slice, the proximity to the road on tees 1, 4 and 8 were a little unnerving and the safety netting in place is a little sporadic. Also watch out for the long row of housing lining the entire length of hole 15.

The only real concern was the visibility of some flags from the tees, especially a couple of uphill holes. Thankfully, this small inconvenience is offset by a very informative scorecard with a great plan of the the entire course.
