Hallamshire Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1897

Hallamshire Golf Club, located in Sandygate just outside the city of Sheffield, is another in England's excellent lineage of heathland golf courses designed by the great Harry Colt. Characterised by large pockets of heather, gorse and bilberries, the undulating heather-clad layout sits on acidic, peaty soil, which produces excellently conditioned fairways, as well as firm, true greens.

Despite the abundance of trees and gorse bushes, the out-and-back layout of Hallamshire retains a pleasantly open feel. From the showpiece par-3 6th hole (Saucer), the undulating nature of the course becomes more apparent, and the views onto surrounding hills even grander. Several holes gather down towards Black Brook, which will need to be crossed six times during the round.

Pick of the holes: the elevated-tee to elevated-green par-4 13th (Barncliffe) is one of the best of a fine array of holes laid out by Harry Colt at Hallamshire. The short par-3 17th (Quarry) is also a captivating hole ... the name gives away what you might expect to find here.
