Holme Hall - 2nd July

130 enthusiastic golfers took on the challenging Holme Hall Golf Club in fantastic condition. Everyone was quick to notice how hard the rough was playing, which left many people finding it hard to score if found from the tee! The weather was great all day and everyone left great reviews of all facilities on offer at the club.

Situated on the outskirts of Scunthorpe, the course at Holme Hall Golf Club occupies a 125-acre heathland tract that lies less than a mile to the south of the enormous Scunthorpe Steelworks. It’s hard to imagine a tree-lined golfing oasis like this could ever exist so close to such a large heavy industrial enterprise.

The course evolved from a 9-hole track in 1908 into eighteen holes in 1931, after Tom Williamson expanded the layout. It now measures 6,406 yards from the back tees, playing to a par of 71, with holes configured in two returning 9-hole circuits.The front nine starts and ends with eminently birdieable par fives and between those two holes, the only par three on the outward half is played at the 132-yard 4th, which plays over a small pond.On the back nine, holes 14 to 18 are routed along the perimeter of the property, with out of bounds to the left on each of these fairways. The club was honoured in 2019 to co-host the English Senior Men’s Stoke Play Championship with nearby Elsham Golf Club.

As anticipation mounted, the moment arrived for the unveiling of the much-awaited prizes:
