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.
One of the best inland courses in UK
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
A day out to be remembered
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.
A great destination visit
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.
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.
Very good condition
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.
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.
One of the finest courses in England
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.
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.
The greens were the best I have ever putted on
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.
One definitely worth playing
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.
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.
This is a fantastic
course with great facilities. Expect a warm welcome and thoroughly enjoyable experience!
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!
