On the southern edge of Peaks and Dales and hidden away at the head of a picturesque Derbyshire valley this established 18 hole course takes advantage of the breathtaking countryside yet is only a few minutes away from junction 28 of the M1.

Shirland’s manicured and easy walking layout combines brilliantly with the areas rugged beauty… creating an enjoyable golf experience.

The tree lined fairways and long par fives on the front nine will stretch your legs for sure but probably the bigger test comes later on the shorter and tighter back nine holes with an open aspect to attract the breezes.

But it also opens up some quite lovely views of the valley and Dales beyond and that’s what we’re here for!

Yet another very friendly golf club with a welcoming food and bar area in the first floor clubhouse lounge. Societies are welcome 7 days a week.

Another level – Leamington & County

Leamington and County GC has the experience of over 100 years of golfing tradition combined with a healthy modern attitude to bringing new golfers into the game.

Leamington have undertaken some course developments this year too, a slightly altered layout now exists with a re-route and two changed holes which include a new 18th. A joint editor’s visit was required to check it all out, Mandy and myself chose the hottest day of the year to do it!

Nuneaton GC – 2018 style

The fortunes of Nuneaton Golf Club are doing rather nicely of late, a rate of progress to compare favourably with their famous son. Locally born Andy Sullivan played his golf here from picking up a club at the age of ten. He still lives in the area and during his downtime away from the European Tour is often to be found on the fairways of Nuneaton, still playing money games with old mates.
