Rotherham Golf Club

What we say

A fine parkland course with some cunningly designed tests thanks to James Braid who remodelled some of the original layout. You need to think your way round here: from the 1st hole - not as long as it looks from the tee - to the 18th where you need more club than you think as you aim for the pin, the clubhouse an impressive backdrop.

One of Yorkshire’s finest rolling parkland courses with some cunningly designed tests of your golf skills. From the 1st hole - not as long as it looks from the tee - to the 18th where you need more club than you think as you aim for the pin you need to think your way around this course, where beautiful trees line exquisite fairways.

On many holes including the signature 9th, a monster par 3, the gothic clubhouse forms an impressive backdrop to your shot. Besides the majesty of course and clubhouse Rotherham Golf Club saw Danny Willett (2016 US Masters Champion) and Jonathan Thomson (European Tour) learn their craft as junior members.

The club was formed in 1903 and par for the 18-hole 6378-yard course is a testing 70. Originally laid out by Sandy Herd, it was subsequently modified by James Braid. Resulting from all this expertise is an exceptionally well-established course. Cutting edge greens technology has been harnessed by an experienced team to deliver greens of the finest quality which are both fast and true and the fairways are lush and well defined.

It’s no surprise that the course hosts the prestigious amateur tournament, The Lee Westwood Trophy each year.

You might expect to find a course of this majesty off the beaten track, but the course is easily accessible from the M1, M18 or A1 in South Yorkshire.

Before or after your round, the welcoming clubhouse offers bar meals and more formal dining of the highest standards with a wide choice of beers and wines taken in any of the two bars or outside terrace overlooking the 18

th with a chance to view some of Danny Willett’s US Masters 2016 memorabilia.
