Wow, what a course, get there !

We won a charity auction prize to travel and play this top 100 course and arrived on a fantastically sunny afternoon in September to see its splendour. We were not disappointed with any aspect of the course, tees and greens immaculate and fairways in lovely condition. The changing background to each hole is very appealing and the tightness and difficulty of some of the back nine, make it a real thinkers course. I am a 12 handicapper and I found it challenging on the front nine but played the back nine 4 over, so finished very happy. Pro shop staff excellent, clubhouse staff excellent. Definitely in my top ten courses ever and I will be back to conquer that front nine one day !

Good Day

2nd time I have played Notts Hollinwell and each time I have loved the site it has some great holes, however the greens on both occasions now have not lived up to the layout, I know it isnt everything but it does make a difference. Lovely Pro Shop and an old Clubhouse with great character.

One of the best courses I have played. You need to be fairly straight off the tee to avoid the heather. The greens and everything about the course is in top condition.

Great layout in excellent fast running condition. This is a tight,top quality venue that is one of the best in the Midlands. Hosted Final Open Qualifying this year and it is easy to understand how it was selected. Food and refreshments excellent.

Good course, pity about everything else

Course was everything it was made up to be. Steeped in history the challenge was as good as the legends that have been told.
However, the clubhouse is stuffy, service is reluctant and the pro shop is ludicrously expensive! If they’d get off their backsides and at least greet you as you came in through the door then that’d be a start. Miserable.
If the course wasn’t as good as it was there would be no reason to go back.

Woah - what a course

Golfshake Team ReviewPutt it this way (no pun intended) the top British ladies golfer Mel Reid was there on the day we were there, practicing ......say no more. From start to finish it was awe inspiring. From having my name on the welcome board as you walk in, to the beautifully laid out and tasting full breakfast before teeing off to even being welcomed into the bar area that had been reserved for the members committee meeting in the evening (everyone in blazers, shirts and ties and they still invited us in to drink our beer after our round.) With such a magnificent setting I expected people to be a bit stuffy but I could not be more wrong. Everyone was so welcoming. And not forgetting the 4 hours in between the golf was out of this world. Some incredible views from some tees. Really want to go again when all the heather is in full (purple) bloom...as it does look so lovely....Only downside was the greens were hollotyned when we played 25/11/17 which spoilt things a little (but then again they have to be at some point!) to keep them up there. Will definitely play there again. A few of the holes are similar to Formby too with the fantastic pine trees around the course.
PS The amazing cars parked in the car park proves this is THE course to play in the area!

Amazing

This is a top top course. Probably the best I've played at. The experience starts with a long drive into the complex. As soon as you first see the club house, you know that you are in a special place.

Practice area is top notch.

The course has just been set up to host the final open qualifier this weekend. So at the time I played it was set up mean and fast.

The rough is punishing. If you are a wild driver. Do yourself a favour and leave the driver in the car. An Iron or 3 wood is the smarter play. You can generally score well if you stay out the rough.

Greens are fast and true.

A great experience and you have to play here.

Beautiful heathland top 100 courses

Golfshake Team ReviewTop 100 venue in north Notts which should be on everyone's bucket list to play.

All was immaculate, course condition top notch and greens pure. Can be a touch challenge in the wind but well worth playing. Excellent layout and variety.

When you drive in to the golf course, it looks amazing. The course is a collection of fantastic holes, with good elevation changes and doglegs in both directions. The greens had recently been worked on but still putted well. The rest of the course was in good condition. You will have to make decisions off the tee and position approach shots to the correct part of the green. The course is a hard walk, but finishes on a visually stunning downhill par 4. This is surely one of the best courses in England.

stunning drive in, particularly if the gorse is out. Range, putting and chipping close by, not allowed to use the grass range for reasons that elude me. Clubhouse very reasonable prices.
Second time playing this course, confirms my initial impression that there is no better inland English course that I have played. Not a weak hole on the course. Most have great views. Play one hole, enjoy it, find the next one is even better.
Easily deserves its top 50 ranking here and more.
