We offer four tee options, measuring from 6,188 yards (slope 137 for Gentlemen) to 5,489 yards (slope 133 for Ladies). For Gents, the 5,845 yards Yellow Tees (slope 136) are a popular choice for both visiting Golf Societies and Retford's numerous members' "fiddles." From November 2023 we are able to offer a winter course from the "Purple" tees which has been measured at 5,558yards 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.
