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.

great winter course

As always the course was in great condition for the winter. Mats are in decent condition, greens were running quick, but a little bobbly.

Great greens, everything else untidy

Scruffy tee boxes, fairways. Different length grass on the second cut. People walking through the course as a cut through. Dogs just running freely around the fairways. Not great. Greens roll true and at a good pace. They?re immaculate. Not much sand in bunkers.

Bulwell Forest GC is not just an amazing Winter Lynx course which is open when most are closed to bad weather. But an excellent summer course to, very tight and very challenging, hit it straight or be punished.
The clubhouse facilities are great with excellent food and views of the course with a fully stocked pro shop and great advise from the pro.

Picturesque

A good par 70 challenging course though all bunkers were GUR. To be expected the Clubhouse was closed but received a friendly welcome from the shop.

good nick but very busy!!

Course was playing well, in need of some post Covid TLC but not too bad. Very slow out there though as tee times were full. Still enjoyable.

Better than expected

What a well laid out challenging golf course. Not a long course but tight in places. Most greens well protected with bunkers and some tee shots needed to carry to hit the fairway . It may be a Par 68 but you need to play well to get a good score. The condition of course was excellent considering many course in the area are either closed or waterlogged.

Green are exceptional

This was my first time playing here and was pretty impressed....the greens were the best I have seen on any course for a very long time. The holes were challenging with some really tough par 3?s and some par 4?s that can be hit at, but you need to be precise from the tee. Plenty of trouble around the course for stray shots....I thoroughly enjoyed and will be back a nice course that was a good challenge.
