Probably most famous for its links with the legend of Robin Hood and some of the names of the local courses will stand out if you’re familiar with these tales. Nottingham is a centre for both sport and literature so on a day off from golf there are many great sites to discover.
A quick drive out to the coast will take you to Royal West Norfolk Golf Club which is a fine example of a classic links course. On the shorter side but tricky and fun to play, this is one of England’s hidden gems. Sherwood Forest is not only the playground of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men, but also a great course to play. This collaboration between Harry S. Colt and James Braid is one of the finest inland courses in the area. Notts Golf Club, a very close neighbour, is another fantastic inland course that has hosted some great competitions such as the British Boys Championship and the Brabazon Trophy.
Other courses that you should play around here are Hunstanton Golf Club, Sheringham Golf Club, Royal Cromer Golf Club, Kedlestone Park Golf Club, The Nottinghamshire Golf and Country Club, Horsley Lodge Golf Club, Royal Worlington and Newmarket Golf Club and Oxley Park Golf Club.
