The Nottinghamshire – Play, Stay, Dine – at the Midland’s most stunning venue.
Home to two of the UK’s most magnificent 18 hole courses, set in 340 acres of parkland, The Nottinghamshire is a firm favourite with both professional golfers and keen amateurs – its finely kept ground proving to be more than an enjoyable challenge for both.
Close to the historic city of Nottingham, yet set in the heart of the countryside, The Nottinghamshire is somewhat of a unique venue, offering not only 36 challenging holes of golf against a stunning backdrop – but also fine dining and the option of a boutique hotel, The Residence, should you want to turn a quick round into a weekend away with friends.
Thanks to a policy of continual improvement and enhancement, both courses change slightly each year, adding in new challenges and ensuring that even members and regular visitors are delighted with an ever-evolving vista.
The Championship Golf Course
Comprising a front nine, set around an impressive lake and waterways complex that not only offers a golfing challenge but that is also home to a considerable amount of wildlife.
The back nine offers a real challenge with mature trees strategically placed to make it a true parkland course. In recent times, owner Alan Hardy has transformed what was an already wonderful golf course into a truly magnificent one.
New tees, further strategically placed trees and water features have not only upped the beauty of this already stunning course but also added to the challenge for golfers of all abilities.
Beautifully kept fairways, flawless greens and a putting course to hone your skills are the hallmarks of this much-loved venue – one that now attracts golfers from far afield.
The Signature Golf Course
Originally partially designed by golfing legend Peter Alliss, The Signature was heavily revised in 2016, adding attractive hedgerows and undulating fairways with large greens and water features.
With so many challenging facets, a stunning lake and abundance of aquatic and birdlife, a round on this course is as relaxing to walk through as it is rewarding to play.
The exciting new 3rd hole has been altered beyond recognition. The transformation includes part of the fairway being remodelled into a lake with the water adjoining to the surrounds of the tee – so be prepared for a drive over water!
For those that just want to lay up, an extension to the fairway has been added either side of the new lake, underlining the stunning appearance of this new feature.
The 18th hole which once was the 9th and a long slog of a par 4, is now a beautifully thought out par 5 with a meandering stream at driving distance. Your approach shot to the green is over water to a fantastic island green; a hole you will never forget! One to reflect on in the 19th, perhaps?
Lakeview Restaurant and Clubhouse
Let’s be honest, a huge part of the appeal of a great game of golf is relaxing with friends, old and new, afterwards. Here, The Nottinghamshire delivers in spades.
Known for fine-dining and a comprehensive menu of English classics, the critically-acclaimed restaurant has achieved press plaudits from restaurant reviewers that have never even held a putter! This is a culinary experience that can be enjoyed whether you plan on playing, or not!
Open seven days week and offering fresh produce and meats from the finest local suppliers, you may want to choose a later tee-time to allow yourself to enjoy everything from a comprehensive breakfast offering through to cordon-bleu lunch and dinner menu choices.
A selection of pump and bottles beers, fine wines and artisan spirits ensures that the euphoria of a great game doesn’t need to end on the final hole!
The Residence Boutique Hotel
Styled with a level of design, fit and finish that evokes the most elegant of Europe’s finest city hotels, The Residence is an oasis of relaxation amongst the bustle of The Nottinghamshire’s two busy courses.
Whether it’s a golf break with your group, a romantic getaway, or just the excuse to stay close to the city while enjoying a round or two, The Residence caters on every level.
Beautifully appointed rooms, exquisite fabrics and décor are the hallmarks of this fabulous venue, with the Lakeview Restaurant a short walk away when hunger calls. Or, for those truly relaxing, room service awaits!
Pro Shop and Driving Range

The packed Pro Shop at The Nottinghamshire boasts all of the biggest names in golf, backed up with the kind of advice, fitting and guidance from the club’s seasoned professionals. Whether you’re looking to step out in style, shave a shot or two off your next round, or even both, you’ll find everything you need in here.
And, when you’re looking to test out your new purchases, or just want to get your eye in ahead of your next tee time, the driving range awaits. Open throughout the season, there’s no finer way to get you and your swing into shape.
With ‘pay and play’ options available, and guests and non-members always welcome, The Nottinghamshire truly has become a ‘must visit’ venue for British golfers.
