A very good golf course, very friendly members, £15 a round, a large clubhouse and great barstaff: what a winning combination.
We played on a Monday in mid-April 2012 on the 2-fore-1 scheme. The chairman of the greens committee told us the greens were more advanced this year than last April and I believe him. They were good-paced and true. Apparently many of MacKenzie’s original multi-tiered greens have been flattened over the years, but the breaks are subtle on today’s greens. The 2nd and 18th give you an idea of what they once were and the club’s website shows an old photo of the original, frightening 12th green before it was reduced (the website wrongly calls it the 18th). The holes are very varied and strategic. If they re-instate the 2 cross-bunkers on the 13th in time for their centenary next year they’ll have a really great par 5. I’ll be back next time I’m near Rotherham.
Played Sitwell Park 16th sept for the first time. The staff were very good, from the secretary to the catering and bar staff. The course was in good condition with the greens a med - fast speed and true. There are a few quirky holes which add to the day. Overall I would recommend this club for a society day.
I Played at Sitwell in March this year and was very impressed with the course for this time of year. Even though the greens had been treated we had a fantastic day. I will definately go back. From having a warm welcome in the club house to playing golf to having a drink in the clubhouse everything was 100%. Greenstaff Fantastic job!
Having played this course on many occasions I have to admit you are unlikely to find a better course in this region for the price. I recently played Sitwell on the 21st June and it was immaculate. The greens were cut short and putting was very tricky yet true. The par 3's are perfect and some thought is required when playing the shorter par 4's. The only other thing I can add is for you to play here. Very very nice and for green fee second to none.
Played the course today on a 2 fore 1 voucher which, on a Friday, represented excellent value at £13 each. (The nearby municipal courses are at least £14!).
The course was in superb condition and the greens were fast, true with subtle undulations and deviations.
The uphill 11th has been altered with ponds to the left of the hole. All the terrain slopes this way and once bedded in the ponds will be another good feature.
A previous comment states that the par 3's are testing. They are all very good with a full shot over hazards required to reach each green. No topped or thinned shots reaching the green on this course.
All in all this course is shaping up to being one of South Yorkshire's best (in summer anyway).
I left a report for this course back in 2001 and now would like to follow this up. I just keep away from this excellent Alistair McKenzie course and eventually ended up giving it the ultimate accolade by becoming a member in 2003. Obviously, some people will now think that any comment I make will be biased. However, I can assure any golfer that they will find the course in superb condition and give a great challenge as all McKenzie courses do. A lot of effort is being put into improving the drainage which was always a problem in the past. I still love the place and don't know of a single course in South Yorkshire where I would prefer to play on a regular basis.
Wonderful in summer hard work in winter wind - but very interesting. The first time I played was a "quicky". Managed to squeeze a round in before a society. I iritated the society players by waiting until the twosome in front were off the green before I hit my tee shot - the society boys were grumbling that I should play as the twosome were "out of range".....Thank goodness I hit the tee shot perfectly and drove the ball pin high, 10 feet away from the pin - a drive of about 345 yards. The society boys were totally quiet as I walked through them after my ball.....It was a good day after that!
I've played this course twice now and it is my favourite course in South Yorkshire by some distance.
Short but tricky would be the best way I could describe it. The par 4 forth being the perfect example with a blind tee shot over the woods to a fairway 30 feet below you. The par threes are spectacular and all the greens and fairways are sculpted delightfully. The par 5 13th in particular undulates magnificently in front of you.
The only downside is the lack of drainage but if you have a free summers day get yourself to this course.
One of the true hidden gems of golf in England!
played it for first time on monday very nice course great par 3s nice greens ,as well as some long par 4s few hills but all in all a great course a must to any golfer pleasent staff as well
Not the longest course around but more than makes up for it with excellent use of the terrain. Very well maintained with superb, very fast, greens. The front nine appears to be more impressive than the back but there lies the twist in the tail. It only serves to make you relax before rearing up and biting back.
Well worth a visit.
Course is in excellent condition with receptive and true greens. Front 9 short but very challenging (I believe holes 3-6 are nicknamed 'The Jungle'!!). Back 9 a little boring and 3 of the last 4 holes are very difficult. An interesting course to play but VERY hilly and a difficult walk. The 18th is a disappointing finishing hole for the average golfer.
