What the club says: The club which was established in 1893 is 6370 yards long from the yellow tees and is a test for golfers of all abilities. After our recent re-develoment in 2008, we now offer an excellent championship golf course with the finest practice facilities in the county. The stunning views over the Silkstone valley towards Emley Moor and Cannon Hall enhance the experience of playing a round or two of golf in such a beautiful and relaxing setting. Thanks to our dedicated greens team, this impressive course is in the best condition it has been for many years.

Great course, very hilly.

Course was in lovely condition, lots of holes have severe slopes across the fairway which makes it tricky. Keep to the fairway as the rough is unforgiving.

Will be back

Played this course for the first time yesterday and it's one of the best courses I've played. The facilities are very good, the course itself was lovely and everyone we met were very friendly.
Will definately be returning.

Worth the money

Course in very good condition for the time of year. Lovely surroundings to play golf. Shame there was heavy showers that affected the quality of golf but overall an enjoyable day.

The greens were magnificent for late September and it is a well kept course with many green staff present during the round. Nice clubhouse with friendly staff. It was a pity we could not play better on a great track.

Great as usual

Always like going here, not least because it is alongside the car park where I work!
Really nice course and a snip at the twilight rate.
Well kept and some nice holes. The 4th is my favourite, nice par 3 with something like 160 yard carry straight over a pond, pretty tough on a windy day.

Fantastic Course

I'd seen a number of reviews that said that this was a course worth visiting, and the worry is always that it can't quite match expectation. That wasn't the case here. The only disappointment today was the way I played it.

Tees, fairways and greens were in excellent condition, and the course has a lot of interesting and scenic holes to go with it. This isn't a flat course, so be prepared for a number of climbs, but it is worth the effort.

The fairways are mostly fairly forgiving, but there are a number of holes where par will be a very good score, and the course is certainly not a pushover.

My one tip, other than play here, is the big lake in front of the 11th green. I didn't see it until the same time my ball did.

Superb course not far from M1

This is a real quality golf course. Beautiful views, stunning holes (especially when sunny) with pristine fairways and greens. Be prepared to climb some hills though!

First time I've ever played here and I'll definitely be back. £20 when it's a four ball and the course was great. Lots of thinking holes and risk and reward. Thoroughly enjoyable.
