What the club says: One of Britain’s finest courses, The Hotchkin, is built on sandy soil which allows for year round play. Set amongst banks of gorse and broom, backed up with layered canopies of oak, fir and towering silver birch and encapsulated all upon a glorious carpet of heather, the natural beauty of this Lincolnshire oasis serves only to emphasise the majesty of this famous course.
The National Golf Centre coaching facilities include a driving range and four-acre short game coaching area.

A really great golf course, wonderful condition. You need to be long and straight off the tee, otherwise there are massive deep bunkers and lots of heather waiting for you! The range, shop and bar are all top notch. Its a bit more expensive than some, and Woodhall Spa is in the middle of nowhere, but well worth the trip. We will be back.

Golf Course Reviews for Woodhall Spa Golf Club
A number of us play one of the courses each year, as Clubs receive invites for Captains and Secretary. To be honest I wouldn't pay what they ask for a green fee otherwise. this year we played the Hotchkin (for some reason most of our Captains prefer this course, but I think that is purely down to reputation, so they can say they've played it). Personally I'd have preferred to play the Bracken - at my age I prefer the putting challenge rather than a long driving challenge!
A lot of work has been done on the course, removing steps down into bunkers (I saw at least one which stills needs to be done). No-one seems to rake the bunkers, and at least one which I was in was full of stones - some quite large. The greens were slower this year than I have ever experienced them, but at least they were consistent. Fairways were in very good order, as were the tees.
The starter told us some changes are being made to bring the course back to more of a heathland course, and this seemed to be reflected in the removal of some quite large trees, which seemed to allow the wind to swirl around more than usual. He also warned us that all the trouble is at the front of the greens, and this usually involved slopes taking the ball into greenside bunkers - i.e. impossible to run the ball up to the green unless you were arrow straight. The heather doesn't usually come into play unless you are short off the tee or particularly wayward.
The staff in the bar/restaurant were excellent, and we all enjoyed the breakfast, and the guys who weren't driving enjoyed the beers afterwards, and the bar prices were reasonable. Prices in the pro-shop seemed a little expensive, and for a change there was very little 'on sale'. One of our guys was hoping to get a buggy, but these were all out, so bear this in mind and pre-order if someone in your group needs one.
What a course! Often overshadowed by its more famous hotchkin layout, the bracken is a must play. Very different challenge that yeasts every aspect of your game, especially around the greens which are large and contoured. Sorry game and putting need to be on song to score well.

A great test of golf, totally different to the Hotchkin but just as challenging. Tree lined fairways, some requiring accurate tee shot, are a feature of this course. The undulating greens require an accurate second shot, or play safe with a lay-up and rely on a good chip. Never second best to the Hotchkin and well worth the weekend package for DBB and 2 courses.
