Thursday 11th July – Hollinwell Golf Club
Golfers who find their way to Hollinwell Golf Club know they have arrived at a special place from the moment they turn the final bend on the long driveway to the Club and see a magnificent view of the course and imposing clubhouse ahead of them.
Set in the gently rolling hills of North Nottinghamshire, in the heart of Robin Hood County, Notts Hollinwell offers one of the very finest examples of heathland golf in the UK & Ireland. The course is situated in a natural valley within Kirkby Forest that utilises the naturally undulating terrain to the full. Some fairways sweep through wooded hillsides and others run through heather, fern and gorse clad valleys. The Club was formed in 1887 and moved to Hollinwell in 1901, when the twice Open Champion, Willie Park Junior, was invited to lay out a new 18 hole course. The Willie Park routing makes this one of the UK’s greatest inland courses.
