A round of golf at Renishaw is definitely a game of two halves.
The front nine of the Par 71 6132 yards course is set in undulating parkland grounds with Renishaw Hall as the back drop. The back 9 is a flatter meadowland running alongside the River Rother.
Accuracy and positioning is vital on the front nine where second shots on the par 4’s need careful placing to counter tricky pin placements. Wayward shots are general penalised by the many mature trees running alongside the holes
The back nine is slightly more forgiving and with 4 par 5’s offers birdie chances for the longer hitters. Again though danger awaits to anyone straying off line.
Whilst the whole course is always well presented the greens at Renishaw are undoubtedly its pride and joy. Fast and true they are widely recognised as some of the best in the county with many a professional player failing to cope with their intricacies during championship events
