The Hallamshire Experience

Hallamshire is home to one of the best and most challenging courses in the North of England.

“Hallamshire is a little pocket of paradise at the gateway of the
Peak District. When the sun shines it is like a living postcard”

Daily Telegraph

Although the Club was originally formed in 1897, it was decided in 1912 to engage Harry S. Colt, to design the course. Colt is responsible for designing some of the finest and most iconic golf courses in the world, notably Royal Portrush, Sunningdale New and Swinley Forest as well as being involved in the design of Pine Valley in New Jersey, USA - long recognised as the world’s best golf course. More locally he designed Sherwood Forest, as well as having significant input towards both Ganton and Woodhall Spa.

The Colt layout largely remains today, although there is documentation that evidences some input from another of the great architects, W.H Fowler (Walton Heath, The Berkshire) in the 1920’s, as well as some subtle changes to the layout as the 20th century progressed.

Colt’s reputation of being the finest designer of par 3’s ever is very much in evidence at Hallamshire. The 6th is one of the finest holes on the course, being played from an elevated tee over woodland to a green protected by bunkers short and left with terrain which slopes considerably away from the green.

“The 6th hole could be included on any course in the world.”
the late Peter Alliss, renowned former BBC golf commentator

The course is wonderfully supported by the welcoming atmosphere from the clubs members and staff to ensure a truly memorable experience here at Hallamshire.
