Top course

Second time playing this course, first time we got a absolutely soaked from 4hrs of torrential rain. The second time we (this time)we were absolutely soaked from 27’C of brilliant sunshine and heat - what a contrast! It’s doesn’t matter what the weather this is a top course to play whatever the weather with plenty of challenges for all levels of none professional golfers.
Top course!

Rufford golf

Another great round at this course in the late evening with the sun setting over this sublime course.
Fairways generous and greens in great condition and the low flying geese added to the great experience.

1st timers will definitely be back with colleagues

Been waiting since lockdown to play and well worth it. Great variety of holes but forgiving on wayward drives. Great greens and of course a really attractive course. Covid controls are good around the clubhouse and good welcome and advice by the Pro. Wasn't told we would be paired up so didn't find out until we arrived at the tee but the guys were really good fun.

Great condition

Difficult to fault the condition of this course considering the amount of rain we’ve had. Greens were excellent. Special mention to all the staff. Everyone we spoke to was a credit to the club. Best value course I’ve played in a long time

Great course, eye pleasing and unique.

First golf course review wirtten by myself -
First course worth writing about that isn't popularly known.

Met with a warm welcome, informed about some space around my tee time if I wanted to get off earlier/later.
Visited the large undulated chipping and putting green before heading to the range, where I was firing balls through the rugby posts and at the many distance checkers, treelined and quiet, a nice range.

Course plays fairly open but lines still need to be decided from the tee, not too long so big hitters can leave the driver in the bag but there is a couple forced carries of 160-210 if you want to take the right line.

Excellent undulation around many greens forcing a planned approach.
Some steep hills but well spread out so not physically demanding.

Especially impressed with the par 3's and the stretch from 4- 6, like playing in a private forest.

Greens are a little firm but receptive enough, some lovely multi-tered challenges amongst them.

Playing off 9.1 I shot 80 gross, 71 nett, and left some out there, will definitely be back for those shots next time I am near Nottingham.

Reccommend to all.
