The Golf Club

THE HALLAMSHIRE EXPERIENCE

The Hallamshire is recognized as one of the finest golf clubs in the South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire region.

Below are some of the distinctive features we offer:

Quality and reputation of the course

We have a Harry Colt designed layout that visitors frequently praise in glowing terms, not least for the quality of our greens, which are hand cut on a daily basis during the summer, and ironed to keep true and fast. We are developing our course in various ways, most notably with the addition of some new championship tees to provide a greater challenge for special events. Under STRI guidance, we have been scarifying and re-shaping our previously fearsome rough, which has now been much reduced, to the acclaim of our medium and higher handicappers. Because we are a Colt course we have reduced tee fee arrangements with other Colt courses across the UK.

Tee availability is easy

We are a members’ club that takes pride in keeping the numbers of members and visitors at levels which ensure that one can almost always just turn up without a tee booking and play. We only use pre-booking of tee times for societies and for members’ competitions. For the latter we have installed an online tee booking facility, which can be used from home as well as in the Club.

Open for play

The course is open and playable almost every day of the year, including the greens, thanks to the high position of the course and the fast draining moorland, along with some excellent drainage and first-rate greenstaff. In the winter, players can elect to we use a mat to move their ball from fairways to the fringes, thereby getting good lies and protecting the fairways.

Friendly membership

New members always comment on the warm welcome they receive and the number of fiddles available which ensure that as a newcomer they can turn up and get a game with other members. Regular social occasions also help new members “get into the Hallamshire way”.

An integrated Club

The Ladies' and Gentlemen’s sections are fully integrated, with all members treated equally in all respects (membership fees, use of all facilities, etc), and we have a longstanding tradition of Mixed Competitions. Hallamshire also boats a thriving and successful juniors' section.

Clubhouse and Hospitality

Our excellent Clubhouse has recently been refurbished and we have invested in remodelling our Main Lounge, bar and veranda, and enlarging our outside patio, all of which overlook the 18th green and the 1st hole. Our car parking facilities have also recently been extended. We have a great reputation for providing traditional golfing fare, plus the ability to provide full lunch and dinner dining facilities for members and their guests.
