Notts Golf Club, also known as Notts Hollinwell, is arguably one of England’s best kept secrets. Set in the gently rolling hills of North Nottinghamshire, it offers one of the finest examples of traditional heathland golf in Great Britain. The course is situated in a natural valley within Kirkby Forest that utilises the naturally undulating terrain to the full. Some fairways sweep through wooded hillsides and others run through heather, fern and gorse clad valleys.
The course feels very much like heathland, but also provides a moorland flavour and a touch of woodland. With varied landscapes, the course comes together really well and many discerning critics will say that the course gets better and better as you progress from hole to hole. Each hole is separate from others and at many points on the course you may feel you are the only person playing.
Measuring 7250 yards from the championship tees, there are few, if any, sterner tests around. A standard scratch score of 76 against the par of 72 from these tees, proves this examination is only for the very brave accomplished golfer.
