Radcliffe-on-Trent Golf Club was founded in 1909 when Tom Williamson laid out a 9-hole course which Frank Pennink expanded to 18 holes in 1972. A Junior Open started life here in 1982, later becoming known as the English Boys Under 16 Open Championship.
I have played here on a couple of occasions, both times in golf days and this is a pleasant enough course but without anything really special about it. The most fascinating part of the course is where they have taken the tee back about 100 yards into a farmers field to lengthen the hole. Even then it remains a short par 4. The ground has furrows in it, a throwback to farming practices of old.
Parkland courses really have to step up to make me want to play them again, and this one doesnt offer anything special or outstanding whereby I would be rushing back. One to ‘tick off’ but nothing more.
