Tour of the Course

Course Overview

We offer four measured tee sets. From "Blue" tees measuring 6,196 yards (slope 137) to "Yellow Tees" at 5,855 yards  (slope 136) for Gents.  The Yellows are a popular choice for both visiting Golf Societies and Retford's numerous members' "fiddles."  The Ladies tees measure 5,500 yards (slope  133).  From November 2023 we are able to offer a winter course from the "Purple" tees which has been measured at 5,558 yards and assessed with a slope rating of 130.  This will permit WHS qualifying rounds to be played most days of the year.

Both the front and back nine offer a mixture of open parkland holes, tree-lined fairways and changes of level.

The course rewards accuracy and, at the same time, offers a few opportunities for longer hitters to excel. Our policy is to control rough areas, especially those adjacent to fairways, to help with ball location and general speed of play. Numerous carefully positioned bunkers, a variety of risk/reward holes and subtle borrows on many of our well kept greens will ensure that even the lowest handicappers are suitably challenged.
