Sherwood Forest is perhaps more famous as the home of the legendary outlaw Robin Hood and his nemesis the Sherriff of Nottingham, but in recent years it has built up a fine reputation as the home of a splendid golf club. Indeed Sherwood Forest Golf Club was founded in 1895 and has the distinction of having had two of history's finest golf course architects work on it. Originally, Harry Colt laid out the designs of it, before the five time Open champion James Braid lent his Midas touch to it to make a few alterations to Colt's design. With a background like that, you'd expect a truly stunning course - take it from us that you won't be disappointed if you go there. The course is voted 2nd best in Nottinghamshire and 44th best in England.

Picturesque, relatively flat and easy walking make it a popular favourite with visiting golfers. The 5898 yard course is set in 165 acres 500 feet above sea level and is characterised by its tight fairways cutting through mature trees and the small, fast, undulating and tricky greens. Conceived by the world renowned Harry S Colt, Lilleshall Hall Golf Club is in fact one of about 300 courses worldwide designed, developed or amended by this most famous of golf course architects. Other notable courses associated with Harry Colt include Wentworth, Woodhall Spa, Sunningdale and Royal St George's.

In 1923, Dr. Alister MacKenzie (of Augusta National fame), one of the finest landscape architects of the twentieth century, was commissioned by the Duke of Devonshire to design a new eighteen-hole golf course on his expansive estate. The result was the magnificent Cavendish course, which is as splendid today as it was in the 1920s. A par 65, it is designed upon undulating woodland and dense copses, making it a challenge for golfers of all abilities. Its feature hole is probably the par three fifth, from which you need to hit the green from your elevated tee shot or risk being caught in any of the green's many surrounding traps. Accuracy, concentration and awareness of the wind speed and direction are essential on this hole especially. The course is voted best in Derbyshire.

Two course meal followed by prize giving (7.00 - 7.30 approx)
Roast Beef & Yorkshire Pudding; Sticky Toffee Pudding with Cream

Designed by Major CK Hutchison and opened to the public in 1922, Tadmarton Heath is a sensational eighteen hole golf course that will cause cold shivers down the spine of the best players whilst still being forgiving enough to send a spark of adrenaline through beginners to the sport. It is a mixture of heath and sandy land that is quite exposed and so suffers from blustery winds gusting through the fairways and wreaking havoc with even the finest shot, and dragging them off towards danger. The course has a charming history, set as it is on the site of an old Roman encampment. Indeed the clubhouse is a farm building with a Holy Well from which the greens are watered The course is voted 5th best in Oxfordshire.

Handsworth Golf Club is a superb undulating parkland course that's only a few miles from the city centre. It boasts some tight fairways which, should mother nature decide to kick up a fuss, can be susceptible to strong winds. A picturesque lake runs down the right hand side of the first stretch of the fairway so be sure to keep it left and avoid an early bath. As you'd expect from a club this age, Handsworth is a beautifully mature course - high tree-lined avenues, attractive borders and, although the city centre is only a matter of miles away, you'd be forgiven for thinking someone had misnamed the club and you were in fact out in the middle of the countryside. The course is voted 9th best in Warwickshire!

Over the years Walmley has seen many changes, both to the course and the clubhouse, the latter built in the mid-1960s. The par 71 course stretches to 6,259 yards and provides a fair but challenging test of golf for players of any handicap. A fair number of holes are tree lined - keep it straight on these holes or you're in trouble - and twin lakes come into play on the fourth, fifth and sixth holes. The attractive clubhouse is ideal for post-round refreshments and offers magnificent view across the course. The course is voted 15th best in Warwickshire.
