The Nottinghamshire is continuing to impress as it settles in as a fully fledged resort destination, the ideal 36 hole play and stay break.
Increased investment by businessman owner Alan Hardy has led to a transformation to the Signature course and the creation and opening of The Residence, 18 new onsite hotel bedrooms. That was in 2016, since then they’ve also revamped their clubhouse and pro shop facilities and added 12 more rooms. They’re on a mission here to take this place to exalted heights but success cannot be judged by investment alone, the experience when you are here and attention to society detail is the most important factor of all, they know their customer service here too.
GOLF – 36 holes of Championship length parkland
The Championship Course – (previously The Open Course) – 6,341 yards (white tees)
A superb modern designed golf course where you are thrown straight into a stern water based challenge by way of the strategic short par five first and lakeside long par three second hole. It’s a theme that doesn’t diminish a whole lot and comes to a spectacular pinnacle at the 14th. This short hole boasts the ultimate society day penalty, find the lake here and face the prospect of something akin to ‘walking the plank’ – a trip to the drop zone, situated on a plinth surrounded by water. If there was ever a pressure point for society banter, it resides right here!
The Signature Course – (previously The Masters Course) – 6,032 yards (white tees)
The Signature has enjoyed a stunning transformation to bring it in line with The Championship, focussing around an all-new 18th hole, just a short par five of 463 yards, but those going for it in two had better check their yardages and know how to stop a ball on a putting surface. This is now a full island green and has probably taken signature status away from the former short 16th , which still retains it’s reputation as a classic hole but is now the 10th. The re-route has allowed two more par threes to sit together at 16 and 17 as a prelude to the final examination, an exciting conclusion in store to any round of golf.
With an equal commitment donated to course conditioning and greens quality, The Nottinghamshire’s progress caught the attention of England Golf. As a consequence they have just hosted the English Girls U-14 to U-18 Championships on both courses to great acclaim in 2017, the first time a single venue has held all age groups, a definite feather in the cap.
19th Hole – Ultra modern facilities all centered around The Lakeview Bar and Restaurant, with one of the more imaginative bar menus around, one that only encourages a relaxing experience. The restaurant itself serves evening meals seven days a week, a very popular Sunday Carvery and for the groups, there is a good range of society menus to pick from. You can also benefit from private first floor society suites with balcony access, looking over the golf courses on a sunny day.
The large club shop sits open planned, next door to the bar and the practice facilities include a nine bay floodlit range.
The Residence – “The final piece of the jigsaw”
Officially opened in 2016, the 18 brand new Boutique styled rooms are all individually styled and furnished with LCD TV’s and complimentary WI-FI. Rooms to suit for all occasions, society breaks, family gatherings and weddings too. Play and stay at The Nottinghamshire is fully open for business and this year, as part of a clubhouse renovation, 12 further bedrooms were added.
