Cracking track

I was halfway there when I realised my trolley, battery and shoes were in the car with me but I'd forgotten to put the clubs in. Rang the course and explained my senior moment and that I wouldn't be able to make our booked tee-time after returning home for my bag. They were very understanding and said not to worry as they'd squeeze us in somewhere. (Even though today was a lovely late summer's day and they were booked solid). When I finally arrived 15 minutes after our booked time (and to a round of applause from the rest of my four ball) they got us on the first tee within 15 minutes. So well done there Rufford.
I can hardly pan the course after there sterling efforts but fortunately I don't need to. It's been a good few years since we last played Rufford and I think we'd all forgotten what a thoroughly enjoyable track it is. It was in great nick and there are some really interesting holes too. It's not too long, at 6036 yards off the yellows, with just one par 5, a 584yd slog, and a couple of very interesting holes among it's four par 3s (the 7th 150yds all carry across a valley and the infamous 17th from a hugely elevated tee 160yds to the green way below with a lake washing the from apron). A tip from me for the 17th is to hit your 140 yard club if the winds not doing much (I hit a 7 iron and finished on the banking at the back of the green, from where I chipped in for a surprise birdie).
To summarise, it's a great track, in good nick, with interesting holes, good staff and, at £24 on weekdays, good value too. Well worth a visit or three!

great society venue

friendly hospitable venue. staff excellent and welcoming. The course is a little bit quirky but there are some good holes particularly the 17th. Has obviously been busy since lockdown was released as there are some tired areas of fairway and tee boxes. practice range balls are very poor quality and left marks on a new set of clubs. other than that minor gripe happy to revisit in the future.

Very well laid out golf course with wide fairways but still plenty of well positioned bunkers.

Fantastic course

Rufford is a parkland course that's a good test. The course was in good nick with challenging greens (for me!) Bunkers were GUR which meant I reached fro driver when I wouldn't normally but this didn't detract from the round. Definitely worth a visit

Immaculate

?15!!! Wow. What a course and not just because of the price tag.
Tee box to green everything was in immaculate condition. Freeways were very well maintained and the rough wasn't to punishing.
Some nice par 3's all very testing. Not the longest course about, all par 4s very reachable in two. Greens are large with a few undulations but all very well kept.
The 17th lived up to expectations with mixed results from our team.
The course was very welcoming. Our only niggle being clubhouse/shop was closed by the time we finished. Were we gagging for a drink but found a local pub close to the course.
We will definitely be revisiting again. You just dont get this quality of course for the cost anywhere else local.

Beautiful Course, great value

What a fabulous golf course. Stunning setting and surroundings. A challenge for the low handicap and playable at the same time for the lesser ability player. Can't think of a hole I didn't like. High up on my list and can't wait to go again. The staff are top notch ...making everyone feel very welcome. Well done Rufford Park ..and thanks for a great visit.

Great course, really friendly and nicely set up

Got this course on a GolfNow HotDeal of ?14 and what a bargain it was. Just one temp on the first and all other greens open. Some great holes, 17 being the signature one I liked most. Pro in the clubhouse was really friendly and interested in chatting and had one of the best bacon sarnies of any course lately. Range was good too and quite good fun. Will definitely return.

Not a winter course

One of the best courses in Nottinghamshire in good weather, usually in good condition with some interesting and varied holes and decent food and drink at reasonable prices. However they’re very quick to close the course in bad weather and have temp greens at the first sign of frost, so I’d strongly recommend checking with them before travelling in poor weather. On our most recent visit 8 of us traveled from up to an hour away only to find the course was closed as it was ‘waterlogged’. A phone call or text to let us know would have been nice. We checked and no other course in the area was closed and we managed to get the times later in the day at an alternative course nearby.
