Golf courses in South Yorkshire

South Yorkshire is a landlocked county in the North of England, bordered by Derbyshire, West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.


The county sits to the east of the Pennines and is also marked by landscapes with hills and board valleys. With four large metropolitan boroughs (Sheffield, Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham) there’s plenty of places to stay if you’re planning a trip here.

And there’s good reason to! There are a total of 36 golf courses in South Yorkshire, some of them ranking amongst the best in the North of England. 


Lindrick Golf Club is perhaps the most decorated golf club in the county. It’s one of a number of golf courses in Yorkshire that have held the Ryder Cup. But Lindrick was the venue that hosted the memorable 1957 edition, which was the first time Great Britain defeated America in over 24 years. 


The course itself is a picturesque heathland-moorland mix, with gorse lined fairways and well protected greens. It’s still held in high regard today, ranking in the England Top 100 list. In more recent times, it’s held Open Regional Qualifying and plenty of English Amateur Championships. 


Hallamshire Golf Club is another pick in the area. Set on hilly Yorkshire terrain, it’s more of a classic parkland, but with plenty of variety. The card features five par-3s and four par-5s, making it an interesting challenge for all levels of golfers. 


Wheatley Golf Club and Rotherham Golf Club are two more fine examples of parkland courses in South Yorkshire. Whilst Doncaster is a stunning heathland-parkland mix, well worth a visit. If you’re after a round with a view, then Hillsborough Golf Club is the place to play with panoramic views over the Peak District.
