Welcome to Sherwood Forest Golf Club
One of the finest heathland golf courses in Great Britain
You will find us in the East Midlands to the east of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, U.K. We are a long established heathland course alongside the pines, silver birch and oak trees of Clipstone Woods within the legendary Sherwood Forest.
We are very proud of our reputation as one of the oldest and finest heathland golf courses in Great Britain and are currently rated 93rd best in the British Isles and 43rd in England. The course was intially designed by Harry Colt and subsequently enhanced by James Braid.
The English Golf Union, when staging the 2006 England Boy’s Amateur Stroke Play Championships, described Sherwood Forest Golf Club as being 'in a league of its own'. As a premier course the club has hosted many national competitions over the years, including the 'British and English Seniors' and regional qualifying for the 'Open Championship'.
Beauty and the Beast.
There is a lot implied by the heading above. Sherwood Forest GC is an absolute beauty but at the same time a complete beast. Playing this course will break your heart but, on the other hand, fill you full of hope that it is possible to rise to the challenge on a course of this stature. If I ranked golf courses I would rate Sherwood Forest high up on any list. It has rocketed to my number one choice of golf courses to play.
The important this is to come and enjoy your golf whatever your ability. That is the beauty here, because the course is prepared to such a high standard by Head Greenkeeper Kim Kirkham, who started his apprenticeship many years ago, and his team. His motto is 2 the course should be in peak condition every day of the week giving the Monday golfer the same high standard as the weekend one”. The greens are absolutely top class.
All of us were singing the praises of Kim for his fantastic course. It was in exceptional condition, the greens were the best I’ve ever played on. I don’t do course ratings, I do believe that whoever does must look very carefully because it’s way too down the list in our opinion.
There is everything at the Golf Performance Centre to help improve your game and prepare you for the hardest and most pleasurable 18 holes.
A wonderfully good golf course, as good. In fact, as any inland course in the county and it still holds true to its tradition today.
