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’.
A full eighteen hole true Championship Course of 6,861 yards (par 70 S.S.S. 74) awaits you with none of the modern water hazards but ninety four bunkers of local sand and long carries over punishing swathes of heather.
As a general rule we are renowned for our ‘most excellent’ greens and a long, demanding turn for home. Very rarely will your ‘second half’ score better the first.
The course record was lowered to 64 in 2006 by eighteen year old Darren Wright of Rowlands Castle, Hampshire, when triumphant in the Carris Trophy (English Boys Amateur Stroke Play Championships). A very memorable event and a name to remember for the future.
With such a treasured asset, the Greens Committee strive to maintain standards of excellence with their strategic long term planning. For instance you will notice our flock of sheep grazing on the outer limits devouring forestation which would otherwise impact on the course.
You will also be warmly greeted on arrival at our traditional clubhouse and the renovated first tee area.
