What the club says: The club was founded in 1993, on the estate of the popular Southwell Racecourse, some 2 miles from Southwell and 5 miles from the market town of Newark. The front nine holes are located in the centre of the racecourse and features our signature hole, the 7th, a straightforward par 3 - as long as you ignore the water between the tee and the island green - our equivalent to the 17th at Sawgrass!!!

Beautiful course

Southwell is a lovely, short course - first nine in the middle of the famous race course - some water and some really good holes. Back nine is very pretty and amongst woodland and fields.

Greens on the mends

i had read the reviews on the course and was sceptical but thought i would have a look for myself.
The course itself was in great nick. Would prefer the first cut to be a tad shorter as its very difficult to find your ball even if you stray only a foot off the fairway.
The greens have very obvious issues but look like they are being addressed. There are several greens affected and had to move my ball and 2 or 3 holes to give me a clear path to the hole. I spoke to a member on course and he advised they were better now than they were a few month previous.
Bigger disappointment was the club shop being closed, red hot and couldn't even pick up a pre round drink.
Even with the state of the greens id be happy to return

Not the best

Front 9 crammed inside the racecourse makes for very tight but bland golf holes. Very boring with the exception of a pretty island green par 3 (7th). Back 9 is woodland and very flat. Much better than the front 9. Greens were in a poor bare condition The first cut was too long and over punishing. Don't think I will hurry back just yet. Maybe the break hadn't helped staff wise. The staff we did meet were nice though.
