Have to say, slightly disappointed with Rotherham. Yes it is a fairly nice looking park-land course but not many holes inspired me to be honest. Rotherham Golf Course - photo by reviewerThe front nine is a little up and down with many holes adjacent to each other – for me the par-3 3rd stood out, around 170 yards uphill and plenty of protection but the par 3 9th is not good at all – 200 yards of carry and not a pretty looking hole. The start of the back nine is the best part of the course…Par 5 10th turning right and then a drivable par-4 at the 11th – The 12th is a nice par 4 with a drive over the valley but it is the last third of the course that is very ordinary. The par 3 14th requires a tee shot to be hit over trees that are only 50 yards from the tee, a little strange – rather than go through the rest of the holes one by one, I’ll just say they did not inspire me that much. On a positive note, the staff and the members are very friendly and welcome visitors with open arms – It would be interesting to see what others think of the course.

Rotherham Golf Club is more than 100 years old now and it is set gloriously in pleasant parkland with the most imposing and magnificent clubhouse that would befit any “Royal” Golf Club. It’s represents a solid test of golf and the condition is always impeccable, better than many ranked courses on the website. A real beautiful gem.

I played Rotherham in September and must say i found the course a very good test. The treelined fairways were tight and the rough so thick it was to be avoided at all cost. The greens were very true indeed,it appears the new head green keeper is doing his stuff! Miss Rotherham golf club and you are missing out.

Our society played at Rotherhamat the end of March,the course was surprisingly dry for a parkland but the greens were unbelievable,smooth and quick,a really great day,we will be back in the summer for more of the same.
Beautiful parkland layout with just about the most imposing clubhouse you are ever likely to see. Very popular in the area due to its easy-walking layout and fine conditioning. The club boast a number of top amateur players and boast a golf team to match the club's stature. Off the course they have the friendliest pro and bar staff I have come across and get the day off to a great start. Very enjoyable parkland experience.
