Nottinghamshire is a land-locked county sitting in the East Midlands.
The area has a history of coal mining and manufacturing, but is probably most famous for the association with Robin Hood, a local legend who stole from the rich to give to the poor.
And golfers with an interest in Robin Hood can visit the nearby Sherwood Forest Golf Club. Back in the 1200’s the main route from York to London ran through Sherwood Forest, which at the time covered over 100,000 acres. Travellers were often at the mercy of thieves including Robin Hood and his merry men!
Today, Sherwood Forest is just one of many golf courses that make it a worthwhile visit to Nottinghamshire.
In fact there are 32 golf courses in Nottinghamshire, some making the top 100 courses in England & UK lists.
Outside of Sherwood Forest, our top picks would include Notts Hollinwell, a golf course that dates back to 1897 and has consistently ranked in the top 50 golf courses in England. The club has held prestigious events such as the Brabazon Trophy and the Boys Amateur Championship – won by Matt Fitzpatrick in 2012.
