What the club says: The course is recently under new management and we are working hard to make it the best 9 hole course in the area. New regular cutting regimes and newer equipment are helping to get the course into shape. USGA spec greens mean greens are in play all year round.
A 9 hole par 35 FootGolf course was installed in July 2016 and provides an ideal place for young and old to take their first steps into the principles of golf using a football.
March 2017 saw the opening of a new Reception and small coffee shop housed within the existing driving range, taking the number of bays available to 11. A small selection of drinks are currently available, with the intention to a small selection of hot food in the near future.
Consistent opening hours in Reception are restoring the faith of previous customers who weren't sure when the course or range would be open!
Free coaching on Wednesday evenings (6 - 8pm) with our PGA Qualified Class AA Head Professional, Andy Carnall are proving very popular and are generally busiest from 6-7pm. You only pay for your basket of balls - the coaching is completely free. Monday Specialised Coaching courses have been running since January 2018, and are proving popular for golfers wanting to improve their game.
Our carp pond is well stocked and fishing memberships are £160 per year.
Our small retail outlet sells golf balls, gloves, tees, club cleaners,pencils and has clubs and push trolleys available for hire at £2/9-holes and £3/18-holes. Credit cards accepted.
Most Helpful Review
Barlborough has had its share of ups and downs, and it's fair to say it's never lived up to its early promise. However the new owners are making a real effort here, and deserve a little support from Derbyshire golfers.
Drainage is much better than of old, fairways generally good, greens need some work, but I reckon £7 for 9 varied holes is spot on for an enjoyable mornings golf.
I keep reading how easy this course is, then I look at the scores posted and I wonder if it's so simple after all, truth is the course is quite straightforward in appearance, and not overly long & quite generous off the tees, but shooting around par even for single figure players requires some precision, it's easy to get out of position and bogey a hole on this course. The lack of heavy rough and thick trees, and of course no bunkers, probably mean not so many triple bogeys or worse, but I do know most golfers around here are shooting scores in the mid forties or worse, which for a "simple" par 35 seems a lot.
Stroke index 1 on the course is a 400+ yard par 4, uphill all the way, into the wind most days, out of bounds on the left, thick trees on the right, and in the wet it's a really wicked hole, as hard as any hole in Derbyshire. The final hole is a real beauty too, requiring a precise tee shot and challenging second.
I would say you'll use every club in your bag around these 9 holes, which is always a good sign.
Most people will have played here at some time, and I suspect often had a bad experience or two in the past, but I urge you all to give it another chance and stick by the new owners and see what can be achieved here. Surely no one wants to see another local course close down, remember Birch Hall?

Golf Course Reviews for Barlborough Links Golf Club
Fantastic 9 hole golf course worth visiting.
Freindly staff with a very knowedgable owner / pga golf coach.
(Round played: May 2018 - Score: 45 Handicap: )
The course is actually playing quite well considering how boggy the course is, greens are in such good condition compared to a few years ago and at this time of the year, too many players are still leaving pitch marks especially on the par 3 6th, a good little course for the price. Considering the course conditions I had a good round and my mate Nigel played well also.
(Round played: Jan 2018 - Score: 40 Handicap: )
Played 2 rounds of 9, first 9 not too good but pleased with the second 9, scored 45 and 41, the greens are so much better than ever before, Neil your a genius, I would still like to see the post markers for 100 and 150 mtrs, it would be so much easier to see them, the ones on the floor are not so visible, luckily I have got a rangefinder, no point in practicing and learning your distances if you can't see how far away you are, a big thanks too all really, course is becoming a little gem.

This has been my local course since I could first hold a club however I'd never shout about it being my favourite course for a few reasons. However the course is now under new ownership and I couldn't imagine better people for it! They've improved the course no end already and from what they have been promising it's going to just keep getting better. Lovely people too.
The only major downside at the minute is the fact there is no clubhouse (due to a fire a few years back).
