Longcliffe Golf Club lies a few miles to the southwest of Loughborough, close to the M1 motorway, and the fairways here (many of them doglegged) are judiciously routed through the ancient Charnwood Forest.
I have played this course twice on the Robert Rock Junior Golf Tour and its a good well kept course with some challenging holes. definitely worth a visit if you're in the area
A beautiful undulating course running through forest. Most holes are not very long but the courses defence is that it is tight, care is needed off the tee if you want to score well. The fairways are well kept and always tend to run across, tee shots need to be placed on the upper side to allow for the roll if you want to stay on the fairway.
I really liked the bunkers, there are many that are well placed in the scoring zones and the sand is firm allowing good lies and consistent contact. The greens were OK for this late in the year.
All in all it is easy to see why this course is second in the county. I really enjoyed it even if I didn't score so well throughout the round. I will definitely be returning again.
