Sherwood Forest Golf Club


“The golf course is amazing and the greens are unbelievable – the best roll I’ve had on my putts for a long time. If it’s sunny and calm, you can make a lot of birdies. In the wind and rain, it’s a really strong test. It was in perfect shape and I just loved it.”

David Ravetto, Brabazon Trophy 2020 Winner 

“It’s a great course and really good test off the tee. You need to be strategic. The course showed its teeth on the final day and that’s what made my score of five under for a 66 so pleasing. It’s a proper golf course and you really need to hit some good shots on it to score."

Mark Power, Brabazon Trophy 2020 Runner up

“It’s a really good golf course. The first eight holes are where you want to score well and the back nine is crazy hard! It’s a good place to enjoy golf and in great condition. I love coming to England. I’ve played the Reid, Carris and McGregor Trophy before. It’s great to play the Brabazon on such a good course.”

Christoffer Bring, Brabazon Trophy 2020 Run

"Had the day at Sherwood Forest Golf Club recently. Hoping it would reflect the good reports and I have to say it was absolutely wonderful. The whole experience was typical of a well run professional golf club. Really could not fault anything about the course, practice facilities, catering or management. There was a ‘good morning’ from everyone at the club"

"This is just a short note to thank you and your club.

I and three friends from Sandiway Golf Club visited Sherwood last week using the "passport" scheme.

We recieved a warm welcome in the clubhouse and the pro shop, had a nice lunch and enjoyed your great Golf course, which was in immaculate condition. The greens must be some of the fastest around.

Overall it was a marvellous day, so thank you."

“Sherwood Forest Golf Club proved once again to be a first class championship venue for one of England Golf’s most prestigious tournaments in the calendar. 288 players competed in the English Senior Men’s Open Amateur Championship and it felt as though each and every one of them complimented the condition of the golf course, the service and hospitality within the clubhouse, and the support from the golf club members and volunteers. Sherwood Forest really does have everything required of a championship venue and I was delighted with how well this tournament was delivered. Thank you to everyone at the club who made it a success”.

As we approach the end of 2013, it seems an appropriate time to write and acknowledge how delighted Mansfield Rotary Club are that we came to SFGC. To all staff who have been very receptive to our requests and demonstrated admirably their flexibility to meet changing circumstances created by our numbers fluctuating whenever we have a special speaker that brings additional guests.

On behalf of the President and all who played at Sherwood Forest GC, our grateful thanks to you for all your help, advice and support; much appreciated – a happy and memorable day was had by all.

To thank all staff, who looked after our solid and liquid needs in an exemplary manner and congratulations to the Head Greenkeeper and his Staff for presenting the course in the best condition I have seen it in (first played it in 1964).

We really enjoyed the golf. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming and the course is fabulous. You are really very lucky to have such a high quality course. No wonder it is ranked so highly in national surveys.

I just wanted to compliment you on a superb day’s golf, despite my personal gradual slide from quality to quantity over the back 9.

Your course is truly a magnificent test of ability; the greens are superb, and the welcome we received was excellent. I couldn’t speak more highly of it.

I’d been told how good your course was and it exceeded all expectations.

Thank you for the superb day out when I visited your club for the Investec Open Golf Day. I was very impressed with your club. The course was in very good condition and the members I met were very approachable and friendly. In addition the food and refreshments along with the staff were excellent.

I thoroughly enjoyed my golf and although it is a very challenging course, I did not embarrass myself. I hope that you will be on the Investec list for 2014. I so, I will be putting you as my first choice to play.

A truly outstanding day.

I’ve not stopped with the plaudits about your golf course in our subsequent golf days. Now that you have achieved top 100 statuses with Golf Monthly and Golf World, I think you will continue to rise up the rankings.

I personally am looking forward to returning to play the course as well as to recommend it to other clients.
