We’ve had a look at our favourite flagship courses in Sheffield and further afield, but it very much depends on what you are looking for. If you want a challenge, something more scenic or just a potter around, there’s a course for you.
Moor Allerton’s 27 hole course is pretty unique and is set in 220 acres of countryside and set north of Leeds, this is known for its shallow bunkers, large tees and contoured greens. The club’s 3 loops of 9 holes all start and finish at the clubhouse.
The Ganton’s course is an experience, with its characterful clubhouse with fine views. The course can be unforgiving as it is on rough ground with heathland and rugged features but is a great challenge. Keep an eye out for the wind though as the holes are in every direction!
Beauchief Golf Course over looks picturesque parkland and is in the South West of Sheffield. The views over the Peak District are an easy distraction from a game here as you need your full attention on the course. Set in the grounds of Beauchief Abby that provides a backdrop to the 4th hole.
Birley Wood Golf Course is an ideal ground for golfers of all abilities. Beginnings and young players will feel at ease on the ups and downs of the course and experienced players will relish the charming putting surfaces and exceptional short game of the Fairways Course.
