Visit for a golf holiday at Coxmoor

Coxmoor Golf Club was founded in 1913 and the course is sited in the heart of England on a high heathland plateau close to Sutton in Ashfield, to the south of the colliery town of Mansfield. Tom Williamson (the professional at Notts Golf Club) and Len White (the Coxmoor professional), laid out the current course in the 1930s after new land was acquired, allowing 18 holes to be sited around the clubhouse. This is largely the rather appealing course that is in play today.

Perched proudly upon one of the highest points in Nottinghamshire, Coxmoor commands panoramic views across the Leicestershire Wolds and the Vale of Belvoir. On a clear day from the 13th tee you can see as far as Lincoln Minster.

The course stretches out beyond 6,700 yards with par set at 73, and with five par fives, there are birdie opportunities available for the taking. There are also some very testing holes and probably the toughest include the 5th and the 12th. If the prevailing wind is up, both these par fours are virtually out of reach in regulation.

Coxmoor is a hugely popular venue for visiting societies and many make repeat bookings year after year. Comments from visitors are always complimentary about the excellent course condition and the welcome received from this well-established club.

Alec Shepperson is the current club president and had the great honour of representing Great Britain in two Walker Cups. In his second appearance in 1959 he played against Jack Nicklaus in the singles event. The club pros seem to enjoy their time here too, in fact, there have only ever been four. When Leonard White retired in 1948, his son Bill picked up the job for 37 years and then David Ridley held the post for more than 20 years until Craig White took over the reins in 2007.

Coxmoor has also staged Regional Qualifying for the Open Championship as well as the British Seniors Amateur Open Championship.

Nottinghamshire boasts four fantastic courses and Coxmoor sits comfortably alongside Notts, Worksop and Sherwood Forest. We certainly think that this is a great golfing county, which is well worth visiting.

Description: Coxmoor Golf Club is a thoroughly testing and enjoyable heathland course, reminiscent of nearby Holinwell. Rating: 8.1 out of 10 Reviews: 11
Played here last May in a society day and it was stunning. The course is varied and keeps you interested all the way round. Condition was superb and they looked after us really well. As I recall, the lowest handicapper won the day and he kept the ball in play. It’s not a course to open your shoulders. We played 36 holes and I liked it even better the second time round. This is a great value course too for a traditional club…highly recommended.
