Hallamshire is noted as one of just 400 heather-clad heathland golf courses in the UK by the Sports Turf Research Institute, which describes the course as “prestigious, challenging and attractive”.
Designed by the famous Harry Colt and a member of the Colt Courses collection, Hallamshire is characterised by large pockets of heather, gorse and bilberries which are being encouraged by an ongoing woodland and grassland management programme. The acidic, peaty soil produces beautifully conditioned fairways and firm, true greens under the watchful eye of course manager Gordon Brammah.
The renowned hand-mown greens are typically slick in the summer and long into the autumn months, yet they are relatively small and invariably present a challenge to get “up and down”. The fast-draining soil and buffeting breeze drains the turf exceptionally well, and as a result Hallamshire is often open in the winter when others are closed due to water logging. Those who have played here will know they need to hang on to what may appear to be a wrecked card on the outward nine before attacking the return where scoring opportunities are usually easier to come by.Start course tour
