Founded in 1894, Doncaster Golf Club moved to its present location near Rossington (known as “The Warren”) in 1909 to a layout designed by Alister MacKenzie. Hawtree & Son remodelled the course in 1978 to make way for the M18 motorway.
Doctor Mac stated that the site has “more the character of the real seaside Links among the sand dunes than any inland course I am acquainted with. The Links are of a sandier nature than Ganton, the sand extends to 20 feet deep in places.”
A nice flat parkland course laid out over sandy soil sandwiched between the M18 and the new link road to the Doncaster Sheffield Airport. It’s a well conditioned and looked after course but I have found it a bit too flat and to a certain extent uninteresting and in my view the photos of it on it’s website look better than the actual feel of playing it.
With it being sand based, it’s rarely closed and off main greens as it drains well which is a big plus.
I’d recommend playing if you’re in the Doncaster area along with Wheatley
