What the club says: Hollinwell is set in the gently rolling hills of North Nottinghamshire and offers one of the finest examples of traditional heathland golf in Great Britain.



Most Helpful Review

The course was well kept and attractive to play. Fairways were in an incredible dry condition for this time of year and the greens were very playable and quick. The views were stunning and holes were nicely laid out. My group of friends found the staff to be very friendly and the service they provided was second to none. Be aware of the dress code. All in all- a very pleasant value for money visit which leaves the venue highly recommended.

Woah - what a course

Putt 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! - Oct 27 2017

Fabulous course
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.

Wonderful golf course
We played with a member and had the most wonderful round in the warm sunshine. It is a truly spectacular place to play golf. Every hole is special and it was in great condition

Ainsley S rated 5 out of 5 - Jun 28 2017

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
Top 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.

Eddie M rated 5 out of 5 - May 29 2017

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.

Giless C rated 5 out of 5 - May 29 2017

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.

Society day, the course is magnificent, difficult and the greens were fast but true. A very enjoyable day left feeling I could have scored better.

Played with my dad who is a member, tremendous value at £25 for guests of members. Great course, a real test for amateur golfers and a wonderful scenery across the whole course. Played well with a few way ward drives.. shot 90, handicap 24. Took a few points off my handicap today!

Recently played Notts in their scratch open and despite the fairways having been verti drained/spiked and me playing terribly it was fantastic. Greens were probably the quickest I'd played all year and this was 2nd week of October!

We played off the blue tees - 7200 yards - which was incredibly tough while not hitting it well off the tee. I've put value for money as excellent as I paid ?60 for 36 holes including lunch, but not sure how much it is to turn up and play.

Slightly wet under foot and holes shortened considerable from the last time I played but an enjoyable outing none the less. Course in adequate condition for the time of year. Can not wait to play again in summer.
