What the club says: "Come and test your ability on one of the best courses in the East Midlands" Horsley is a course that any true golf-lover will want to go back to. You will find subtle but neat improvements in 2019 to the tees , greens and surrounds.

Located in the popular golf triangle just North of Derby, 1 mile from Morley and Breadsall, Horsley Lodge is a true test of golf, with 18 cleverly designed holes, most of them featuring water of some kind. Tree-lined fairways meander around some 180 acres of wonderfully undulating, Derbyshire countryside, with hardly a house in sight.
Horsley is a really interesting layout too, with each shot one to ponder. Heroes can go for it! Mortals can play safe. Once you reach the massive USGA standard undulating greens, all 18 of which will require even more thinking about.
Designed by former World Champion and Walker Cup captain, Peter McEvoy (also responsible for Fota Island & Powerscourt in Ireland) and built by the same team responsible for Loch Lomond and Valderrama, Horsley is currently highest ranked and higest rated course in Derbyshire and East Midlands on this, and many other sites. Off peak green fees just £18 a round.

Horsley Lodge has a driving range, a golf shop manned by the ever-present PGA Pro Kevin Lock, always keen to offer any advice you need.
The complex boasts an exceptional clubhouse with 14 uniquely designed bedrooms in a highly rated hotel, as well as a club room and golf bar and outstanding restaurant on site with a menu that serves tapas and traditional English classics and steaks. Under Tom Williams, the new Hotel and Clubhouse Manager you are ensured service of an exceptional quality.

Handy too for the golfer, and open 6 days a week, is a "Halfway House" serving up hot and cold food, drinks and snacks.
NEW General Manager Richard Odell joins Horsley Lodge from Sherwood Forest

Playing all year on Summer greens, suitable to all levels of golfer, this proprietory club owned and run by the same family for 28 years, now truly shows a true maturity in both course and clubhouse that belies its relatively youthful age.

Green fees from just £18 twilight to £28 peak.(£34 Weekends)

Good value Play and stay packages from £107 per person available in the unique 14 bedroom on-site hotel. (Check out our Tripadvisor!)

If you've not been lately, a warm welcome and a great time awaits in 2018. Book on this site or

So impressed , I joined

When my club folded recently my wife and I played most courses in the North Notts / Derbyshire region.
What a feeling you get at Horsley Lodge, I wonder why more casuals don't know about this place. It will be a bit further to travel but we were so impressed with the layout and friendly welcome we practically joined on the spot.
Well done to the staff who convinced us to make the decision. We've since played each week and just love it

Disappointing

Had read good reviews however the greens were in terrible condition. Last of bare patches, was like putting on a ploughed field. Would not drive past such as Morley Hayes or Breadsall Priory to play here again, until the greens are sorted. The layout is great, pace of play, practice facilities, etc all great, but terrible greens at the moment. And quite a bit of construction ongoing around the course.

Excellent challenge

Course was in immaculate condition, greens running true and fairways nice and dry despite recent rainfall. Many stand out holes, including 6, 9, 11, 12, 13, 16 and 17. Plenty of water hazards around to catch you out. Risk and reward options to consider, proper course management required. Nice food served post round. Driving range and putting green in very good condition for pre-round warm up. Excellent value for money on society deal.

A Different Class

4 of us had a great round. Tough test of golf this, but it's a really mature course now...the trees seem to have grown 20 ft. I've not played it for some time but the greens are true and the whole place has an air of understated quality. Exceptionally friendly staff in the clubhouse (something you never get at private clubs) always feel unwelcome at many of these!
Well done for the whole presentation from start to finish with a pint of Horsley Pale Ale what can be better on a September afternoon?

Always very enjoyable here, the last four holes are very testing. The 17th hole is my downfall on this course. I love the water or else my balls do.

Good 19th excellent staff, will definitely come again.

Great as ever

Greens true but slow. Occasional bare patches. Still suffering slightly from last years dry weather. Nevertheless, still good but slightly overpriced for the area.

Considerably improved

The course has improved from its early season conditioning and the members are happy with the work being done by the hardworking ground staff. The greens are moving back to their excellent conditioning and the fairways have much more definition as the weather had improved enough to allow more cutting. Lots of good communication (and hard work) from the greens staff to the membership.Definitely back on track following a disappointing visit early in the year. Would definitely benefit from improved practice range facilities as they are now looking tired and do not compare favourably with others close by.

I think all courses have not fully recovered from the summer drought last year, and this is no different, but you can see the improvements all around from last year. Greens have had a lot of work by the looks of it, we will be back!!
