What the club says: Situated amidst beautiful surroundings the Charnwood Forest Golf Club is the oldest in Leicestershire. The Course is 9 holes, and is on high ground overlooking the Quorn countryside. Great crags of Leicester granite, known as Hanging Stone Rocks form a majestic setting for this delightful course.
The course is beautifully maintained with some of the best greens in the county

Loughborough rated 5 out of 5 - Oct 15 2017

A querky course which boasts stunning views over Charnwood, very friendly and welcoming. Not as easy as it seems, you need to be accurate and aware of the bounce as most of the fairways have a slope. A good challenge of golf for all standards.

Fantastic 9/18 holer!
What a surprise this course was, 9 fantastic holes, doubling up with a further 9 different tee positions for the back 9. No bunkers but plenty of rocks, walls, heather, trees and sloping fairways with a few sheep scattered about, which all make for a challenge! Great course in excellent condition.

Standout heathland challenge
The most stunning heathland course I've played, steeped in archeological history being a true test of golf, where the need for accuracy, skill and course management are truley tested.

Lovely course with some stunning views! The different tee positions really change the holes for the back 9 and make each hole seem different. Lovely course.

The first hole is fairly ordinary and gives no indication of the fun to come. As after that you drive off high fairways far beneath you,with beautiful views of Charnwood Forest to the west and the rest of
Leicestershire to the East. Exhilarating stuff. Friendly staff and members.
