Proud partners of
The Holinwell course is one of the finest examples of heathland golf in the UK & Ireland.
You'll know you've arrived at a special place from the moment you turn the final bend on the long driveway to the Club and see a magnificent view of the course and imposing clubhouse ahead of you.
Notts opened for play in 1887 and is set in the gently rolling hills of North Nottinghamshire, in the heart of Robin Hood County. It's one of those courses that as you progress it just gets better, and better. You'll be challenged with elevation shifts and navigating through meandering forestry with purple heather dominating. Look but don’t go in there! Words can't do it justice. One for the purest, definitely.

Concept is great and everyone was very friendly. Not my best round but really enjoyed the day as a whole. The event was really well ran and the free goody bag was a nice touch. My first golfpairs event But wont be my last.
Congrats on a well run and well organised day out. Really enjoyed the occasion, the weather, the course and loved the live scoring system. Such a great idea - despite not hitting the dizzy heights.

We verify handicaps of prize winners through our access to central handicap databases for the respective unions, where all CONGU handicaps are logged.
