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.

Wow!!

What an amazing course, lucky enough to play here with a tour pro through a friend who?d won a competition and it will be the best Monday I?ve booked off in a long while. Great parkland course with so many challenges, true honest greens and everyone we spoke to there was so friendly, would love to go back

One of the best in England

Fantastic course, in the top five in England. Superb condition, 284 bunkers and a course you need to plot your way around. Highly recommended

Stunning

Played both courses.

Hotchkin
Wow. What a stunning golf course. From tee to green you can't fault it.
It is difficult, the heather and rough can be very punishing. There are bunkers in places where you can see and the greens perfect with such subtle breaks.
Each hole leaves you wanting more, so many you might play differently the next time round.
If you can play 18 holes here and avoid bunkers you've done REALLY well.
Its the kind of course that score goes out the window and you should just really enjoy it for what it is.

Bracken
I loved the fact the 2 courses were such a contrast. The Bracken felt wider from the tee and a little more forgiving, that said the thick rough was still very penal. Most holes are tree lined giving a different feel playing a parkland.

The greens were a lot more undulating but still challenging and the bunkers will still need to be avoided but you can open your shoulders and let a little loser with the driver if you wanted.
Again tee to green the condition was superb and a credit to the greenstaff.

Incredible golf course and test of golf

Played 36 holes at Woodhall this weekend in their annual mens open. This is the 2nd year I've played it and it's reminded me how much I loved the course last time.
The course was in absolutely faultless condition, with greens firm but holding well struck shots and a very good pace. There have been a large number of new bunkers put in since last year and the 18th has now been made a par 5. All the changes have been fully bedded in and apart from some of the grass around the new bunkers looking a little greener than that next to it, you'd never know they were new bunkers.
Well worth making the trip up to the home of England Golf if you've not yet played it.

Sensational golf in lincolnshire

Course was in fantastic condition, even more so for the time of year.
Great value for a four ball on the bracken in February. You will not be disappointed. The ?second string? course was as enjoyable as it was challenging without being exceptionally difficult.

Natural course worth experiencing.

Great course with many natural features including the heather that covers most of the course. Beware the bunkers which are very deep,and a real penalty. Beautiful greens with slight undulations.

Superb condition - great society course

The Bracken is an open and inviting parkland course, not without it's challenges but much more forgiving of mid and higher handicap golfers than the adjacent Hotchkin Course.

Good course

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.

Fantastic course and venue

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.

stands with the Hotchkin

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.
