Worksop Golf Club

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

Est. 1911

Worksop Golf Club: Keeping good company with its north Nottinghamshire neighbour (Lindrick GC), Worksop is a wonderfully undulating and mainly wooded heathland golf course. Always maintained in excellent condition, you will enjoy fine views over the surrounding hills and countryside, especially at the start and finish of your round. The flatter middle section of the course is played through an enchanting stretch of ancient woodland (the northern edge of Sherwood Forest), ominously known as the "Gorselands". Along the way, several tightish drives are needed to find the crisp turf of the fairways, with plenty of trees, gorse bushes and grassy rough awaiting anything too wayward. Dog-legging holes also feature strongly at Worksop, introduced in fine style by the left-to-right dog-leg par-4 4th, followed by the driveable, right-to-left dog-leg par-4 5th - a dangerously tempting risk-reward hole if ever there was ! Water hazards do not feature on this layout, but the bunkering is well done and provides the not overly large greens (most are about 30 yards deep) with plenty of protection. The dog-legging 15th hole is one of many stylishly bunkered holes. A mid-length downhill par-3 closes the round in front of the very pleasant clubhouse, in which you can reflect on your round on one of Nottinghamshire's finest golf courses, and maybe bump into a European Tour player or two !

Did you know?

Worksop Golf Club was established on its current site in 1913 as a 9-hole course, extended to 18-holes in 1924. Additional ground was acquired in 1968 allowing the lengthening of the course and the construction of the present 9th, 10th, 12th and 13th holes through natural woodland. Worksop is the home club of one of England's best golfers of the current era, Lee Westwood. The club's Scratch Championship roll of honour bears the name L.J.Westwood in 1989, 1990 and 1991. Worksop is also the home club of another European Tour player, Mark Foster. [See our Encyclopedia - Tournaments - by Winner section for details of their European and worldwide tour wins].

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
