Notts Golf Club - 7,250 Yards - Par 72

Heather, ferns and gorse line the narrow fairways at Notts, giving the layout a distinct heathland feel. From the championship tees, the course can be extended to just over 7,200 yards, making it a formidable proposition. Hollinwell has a terrific flow and rhythm, progressing smoothly from hole to hole, and saving the most impressive challenges for last. The signature hole has got to be the downhill 13th, which measures 228 yards and is played to a green encircled by no less than six bunkers.

The course hosted the 2015 Brabazon Trophy supported by Your Golf Travel for a record fifth time. The title was won by Cormac Sharvin of Ardglass Golf Club with a four-round -7 total. Needing a par on the last hole to claim the trophy, Sharvin overshot the green, bouncing into the clubhouse before returning back in bounds where his delicate chip and putt was enough to win the coveted trophy.

Whilst the course is a very intimidating 7,250 yards off the back tees, the whites measure just over 6,900 yards while the yellows are a more manageable 6,619 yards to the par of 72. Tips for those playing the course for the first time are to place a focus on accuracy rather than simply distance due to the penal "pink" rough which lines the fairways during the summer months. Whilst it might not be difficult to find your ball in the pink anyone attempting to play an ambitious shot towards to the green might come unstuck as it is certainly thicker than it looks.

Notts is a little known commodity, but those in the know will testify that it is a superb golfing experience. Golfers must supply handicap certificates before play.

Golfer reviews

Excellent tough challenge
It's easy to see why Notts Golf Club has been used for the Brabazon Trophy; it's a great course and a real challenge. All of the staff at Notts Golf Club made us very welcome and were keen to offer advise, not that I could carry it out too often.

For anyone considering playing here, you will need your driver (a lot) as 
it is such a long course. Best advise is hit it long and straight...easy really. Good luck!
Highly recommended
This is a fantastic course with great facilities. Expect a warm welcome and thoroughly enjoyable experience!
One definitely worth playing
Fantastic course with a great halfway house, where you can indulge in a treat just before the holes start to tighten up. If you get the chance it's one definitely worth playing. I am looking forward to returning sometime soon.

A little advice which 
I know is obvious, but stay on the fairway. Should you venture into the heather or wispy grass don't be greedy, take your penalty and just get back into play.
The greens were the best I have ever putted on
What a superb day my son and I had; it was a day that my 14 year old son will truly never forget. The welcome from Your Golf Travel and the staff at the golf club was first class. I played Notts Golf Club last year but the condition this time was even better; the greens were the best I have ever putted on.

For any first time visitors, when your ball enters the rough it is easy to find and is usually lying well, however, don't be fooled by the light wispy grass grips around your clubhead. Take you're medicine and don't take anything lower than an eight iron.
One of the finest courses in England
The driving range, putting & chipping areas and the clubhouse facilities were all exceptional - then comes the course!! Absolutely brilliant. I will definitely be returning again! This is a must visit course which stands up to its reputation as one of the finest courses in England.
Very good condition
The course was in very good condition; greens ran true and were a decent speed.  Rough was longer than normal, but I assume this was due to the Brabazon Trophy being held the same week that we played.

I would suggest that players of a higher handicap are best to play off the yellow tees as some of the carries to reach the fairways are quite long.  
A great destination visit
The course was set up for the Brabazon Trophy and was looking pristine - it is a great destination visit. There are few better 18th holes or views of it from the bar than at Hollinwell.

If you ask me, the light pink grass in the rough is actually made from high tensile steel! Simply look for the nearest "short stuff" and use the minimum club to get to it. Take the pain of a shot and carry on. Attempts at heroics are doomed to failure and many more dropped shots.
A day out to be remembered
Known from now on as fabulous Hollinwell!  Playing the course just before the Brabazon Trophy was a delight and a privilege.  In the last year or so I have played quite a few elite and more expensive courses in the UK, and not many came even close to the quality of Hollinwell.  Tees, fairways, bunkers and greens.....all in tremendous shape.  Add to that the warm and genuine welcome of the staff at the Club, and you have a day out to be remembered for many years.  I will certainly look to take every opportunity to play the course again.

You must keep it in the fairway on this course.....even if that means leaving a lot longer second shot to the green.  The thick rough is penal, assuming you find your golf ball.  Greens are quite quick and many tilt from back to front, so in some cases you are better off chipping up from the front than putting downhill from the back.
One of the best inland courses in UK
Notts Golf Club is arguably one of the best inland courses in UK! It's a superb test of anyone's playing ability, with fast fairways & greens and lovely, colourful rough. There is lots of history on show in the clubhouse which makes interesting reading and the members are a friendly bunch, all in all a very highly recommended day out.
The course was in fantastic condition
This is an absolutely beautiful course with stunning views and fantastic staff who are very welcoming.  The course was in fantastic condition and provided a real test of golf with every hole we faced a different challenge. This is a course that I am looking forward to returning to sometime soon.
