Stamford & Rutland Golfing Posted On 24 July 2020

A plethora of golf clubs in the local area gives you the opportunity to work on your putting or drive whenever the feeling takes you…

 

Burghley Park Golf Club

 Burghley Park is the oldest Golf Club in Lincolnshire, however it isn’t as stuffy as some of its kin. They take a modern theme towards their club, extending a warm welcome to everyone.

 

They pride themselves on course enhancements and offer a revamped clubhouse with views over the first and eighteenth holes. With a multifunctional lounge and restaurant area, it is the perfect place for events and functions.

 

The Pro Shop is run by Drew Farrell and offers excellent service and a hands-on approach offering a wide-range of equipment and clothing at competitive prices. Drew also offers lessons which can be tailored to individual needs.

 

Burghley Park also offers a popular Golf Academy for all ages, genders and experience levels. The membership runs for 12 months and includes 8 lessons with Drew, access to the full course and unlimited use of the practice ground.

 

Greetham Valley Golf Club

 Greetham Valley, 15-minutes drive from Stamford, offers two championship-standard 18-hole courses, alongside a 9-hole Par-3 Academy course, floodlit driving range and a putting green. It also won the ‘Environmental Golf Course of the Year in 2017.’

 

Set amidst 276-acres of rolling, picturesque Rutland countryside, the course is the most popular one in Ruland with a selection of membership options available – all with no joining fees and no interview process.

 

Head Professional Neil Curtis runs the Golf Academy alongside Assistant PGA Professional George Chubb. They offer one-to-one, duo and group lessons to all experience levels, and the Golf Shop offers custom fitted golf clubs.

 

Attached to the Golf Club is a contemporary three-star hotel with a huge range of facilities for guests and golf club embers including a fully-equipped gym, outdoor bowls green, petanque court and private fishing lakes.

 

Rutland Water Golf Course

 If you’re looking for a simple pay-and-play course, then Rutland Water Golf Course is the one for you. Membership is still an option of course, however the green fees are very reasonable for a weekend or weekday impromptu round.

 

With panoramic views of Rutland Water, the challenging 18-hole Championship Normanton course is one of the finest New Golf Courses in the UK. With a yardage of 6486 off the blue tee, it is a good test of skill for the lowest handicapper.

 

The Par 3 Hambleton course is perfect for a day out offering a relaxed dress code and club hire. The club offers a selection of day packages to suit you and welcomes societies and corporate golf days.

 

Fancy staying for the weekend, the Golf Club offers 8 luxury double rooms and a self-catering cottage. On-site you will find locally sourced and produced food served seven days a week in the Courtyard and Club House.
