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.

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.

Nice course

Considering we had never played here before I think we all played quite well, it’s a bit up and down but greens are very good and the course has great character.

Jewel in the crown

Wow, the views were beautiful and the course was immaculate. Each hole had an interest and challenge. The 17th par 3 left no room for error being well protected by water. The pace of the greens were quick and needed a good read to get close. Loved it even though I found water at the 17th being about a metre short to make land and the green.

Heard a lot about this course from many who have played it and all comments were positive. I would have liked to say that it was "ok", but have to say it was one of the most enjoyable rounds I have ever played. Not because I shot an amazing score, because I didn't, simply for the ambience of the place, the courtesy given by the staff we dealt with and the overall friendly vibe. I was also impressed to see young lads on the course enjoying it. Will be returning again soon.

Decent course, right next to Notts Centre Parc's, so if your there on holiday and fancy a round, then try it. Has one of longest Par 5's in County 600+ yards. Nice elevated par 3 17th over a brook. I try and play it once a year as they have good winter deals on it. Nice driving range too.

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.
