Matfen Golf Course

Style: Parkland

Offering an enjoyable challenge for golfers of all standards, this classic parkland style course is sympathetically laid out for everyone to enjoy. The River Pont is featured on several holes and is a picturesque highlight of the course as well as the dry stone 'ha ha' which bisects the estate presenting a unique obstacle. Matfen’s signature hole is the long par-3 17th with a narrow green situated nervously close to the river.
