The Norwood course at the 27-hole Norwood Park Golf Centre opened in 1999 and it’s complemented by the younger par three West Wood track. South Carolina’s Clyde Johnston designed both layouts.
Whilst not on the same level as its more salubrious near neighbours, Norwood Park’s 27 hole layout, set in the grounds of Norwood Hall, makes for an alternative pleasant and much cheaper round of golf. The complex offers a 9 hole par 3 course, plentiful practice area - driving range, putting and chipping greens.
The 18 hole parkland course is interesting enough, with the par 4 dog leg 11th and the views from the par 3 12th tee my favourites. Greens undulate and were in good condition when I played.
Overall there are better courses in this wonderful county for quality golf, and certainly courses like Oakmere Park and Rufford are better in my opinion, so its ranking is fair, but when you want variety then this course is a good option.
