Individually, Nottingham and Leeds are two of our most popular cities for golfing getaways. However, linking the two is a brilliant way of taking in a mix of different course designs across your break.

What’s more, with loads going on in both cities away from the golf, there’s no limit to your options for evening entertainment on this multi-destination golf tour. Our Golf Travel Experts can help to plan in your specific itinerary, but why not take some inspiration from our guide below!


Notts Golf Club

Sherwood Forest

Another fantastic heathland course and less than an hour from the centre of Nottingham, Sherwood Forest is a scenic James Braid design that is a mainstay in the UK & Ireland Top 100 rankings.

The championship layout stretches back to 6,800 yards, which can be a real test due to the penal heather that frames the fairways. However, we’d recommend most golfers play from the yellow tee-boxes at 6,200 yards, perfectly enjoyable for all, whilst still requiring every club in the bag.

Coxmoor Golf Club

Another heathland gem, and another championship course that has hosted some of the UK’s biggest amateur events.

Coxmoor plays a little more through the woodland and features a little less of the bright purple heather that can be seen at Sherwood Forest and Hollinwell, still, it remains as one of the strongest designs in Nottinghamshire, and boasts a newly-opened clubhouse that offers the warmest of welcomes.

The Nottinghamshire

A little closer to the city, The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club is the East Midlands’ only 36-hole venue and features two fabulous courses.

The layouts route through 340 acres of rolling woodland, with a myriad of water features coming into play throughout the round. A variety of teeing options and some great practice facilities make this a great addition to a trip – regardless of the sort of round you’re looking for.

Rufford Park

Our final stop around Nottingham is Rufford Park Golf Club. Tucked away in the countryside, it’s a typical members club that extends a warm welcome to visitors throughout the week. A parkland layout, as the name might suggest, it’s a great value option to add alongside an itinerary taking in some of the bigger name in the region.

Hotels & accommodation

All our accommodation in Leeds offers easy access to both the city centre and the area’s golf courses. The Hilton Leeds and Leonardo Hotel are great bases for those looking to venture out most evenings – placing a premium on location.

However, those looking to enjoy a few more leisure facilities, as well as on-site dining should check out Oulton Hall, one of our most popular venues for golfers in the whole of the UK!

Golf Courses:

Moor Allerton

Our guests love Moor Allerton for many reasons, not least the availability of tee times at the weekend – thanks to the club’s 27-holes!

Designed by Robert Trent Jones, the club has been blessed by long-term associations with both Howard Clark and Peter Alliss, the latter being the club professional in the early 1970s. Within easy reach of the city centre, definitely one to look at adding to your trip to the area.

Headingley Golf Club

Dr Alister MacKenzie designed several courses around Yorkshire (in addition to his famous work at Augusta National), and at Headingly he teamed up with the great Harry Colt.

This English golf championship venue rolls through the peaceful countryside in Adel, just five miles from the centre of Leeds, and prides itself on both the quality and variety of the golf offering. We wouldn’t disagree, and in one of England’s strongest golfing regions, it definitely holds its own.


Another stunning MacKenzie design, Alwoodley is a true championship test with superb turf that plays wonderfully throughout the year. From its relatively straightforward opening holes, the course begins to show its teeth from the par-5 3rd hole, and barely takes its foot off the gas throughout.

The fabulous clubhouse is the perfect place to treat yourself to good sit-down lunch after your round – or a celebratory drink for those playing anywhere close to their handicap!

Alwoodley Golf Club


Moortown was the host of the first Ryder Cup on British soil and remains one of Yorkshire’s finest layouts. Heather lines the fairways, punishing shots that stray offline, however, the superb playing surfaces are incredibly fair – with the fairways, in particular, a joy to play from.

Like others in the area, the course was designed by Alister MacKenzie, and is most easily accessible during the week - with members grabbing the majority of the tee-times on weekend mornings.

Oulton Hall

Something a little different now! Oulton Hall is a true golf resort, with 27 holes, a fabulous hotel, and loads to do on-site. Like Moor Allerton, it’s another course that can be played with ease at the weekend, and offers more of a stay-and-play option for those not keen on venturing too far from their base.

We’d definitely recommend checking out Oulton Hall for larger groups, as well as those looking at a longer stay in the region – with it being the perfect hub from which the entirety of Yorkshire can be explored.
