We are proud to partner with a select group of golf clubs throughout the UK. These clubs will be hosting our Network Days and offer additional prizes or offers to the members attending.
Camberley Heath GC
Camberley Heath Golf Club is one of the finest golf courses in Surrey and plays host to our final Network Day of Season 3.
The Harry Colt course celebrated its centenary year in 2013; set in 135 acres of heath land, framed by towering pines, the challenging 6,400 yard, par 71 golf course is a true test for any golfer.
The combination of an excellent location, outstanding layout and wonderful hospitality in the superb clubhouse is what makes Camberley Heath so special.
Carden Park Resort
Leading to a dramatic finish, the Cheshire golf course at Carden Park offers many challenges along the way with natural hazards to test your golfing skills.
Situated at the back of the estate, the golf course has beautiful views across the estate and the Welsh hills beyond. The bunkers have been designed to flow with the natural contours of the landscape; you will need a sharp swing to keep out of them all!
As you get towards the end of your game, the 16th and 17th lead you to the 18th hole set upon a cliff overlooking the full estate.

Founded in 1883, Hayling is one of England’s oldest courses, with J.H. Taylor making major revisions in 1905.
Back then, the layout featured a number of shots over sandhills rather than along the valleys between them – much as at Royal St George’s in the early days – but as tastes in course design changed, Tom Simpson was eventually drafted in in 1933 to redesign things such that the holes played mostly along the valleys rather than up and over them. As a result, Hayling offers up relatively few blind shots.
In 2002, the club proudly unveiled its distinctive new Art Deco-style white clubhouse, while further modifications have taken place out on the links over the past decade under the guidance of Mackenzie and Ebert’s Tom Mackenzie, mainly bunker work.
Hayling is recognised as one of the premier links course on the South Coast. With fast fairways and fine true greens combined with its stunning location and unique Art Deco clubhouse, Hayling offers a special golfing experience to all visitors.
Hollinwell (The Notts GC)
Simply one of England’s best. Golfers who find their way to Hollinwell know they have arrived at a special place from the moment they turn the final bend on the long driveway to the Club and see a magnificent view of the course and imposing clubhouse ahead of them.
Set in the gently rolling hills of North Nottinghamshire, in the heart of Robin Hood County, Hollinwell offers one of the very finest examples of heathland golf in the UK & Ireland.
FineGolf superbly covered Hollinwell's story, about the enjoyment and tribulations encountered as Hollinwell broke through to the sunny uplands of an Open Championship Final Qualifying venue, hosting the Brabazon Trophy for a fifth time and a possible Walker Cup venue, while also giving its membership and visitors the highest ‘joy-to-be-alive’ feeling.
Golf Club Atlas founder Ran Morrissett ranked Hollinwell 31st of 147 courses worldwide "that embrace the simple virtues of the game" on his inaugural list of Custodians of The Game. The main qualifying criteria is "When you walk off the 18th green, you should feel invigorated rather than exhausted, and the allure of returning to the 1st tee is strong".
Isle of Purbeck GC
The Isle of Purbeck Golf Club was founded in 1892.
The coming of the railway meant hotels were being built and Summer visitors were increasing rapidly. Among its past owners were Dr Darrell-Waters, a consultant of distinction and his wife Enid Blyton, the legendary writer of children's books.
At the time the club was called the Studland Bay Golf Club and the clubhouse was located on the left hand of the Swanage to Studland road. In 1965, after 14 years in charge, Darrell-Waters sold the club to Mr Randolph, who was about to retire from his positions as Chairman and Managing Director of the family firm, The Wilkinson Sword Company. It was Randolph who in 1966 restored the club to its original name "The Isle of Purbeck GC".
This was also the year the new clubhouse, still in use today, was built. It features giant fossils in the walls and the connection with the Wilkinson Sword Company , is present throughout. Swords are played for annually by the members in the Randolph Trophy.
When you play at the Isle of Purbeck, you'll enjoy a wonderfully traditional course set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The first thing that strikes visitors is the spectacular views, looking out over Brownsea Island, Bournemouth and the Solent.
Indeed, the fifth tee possesses one of the finest views in British golf. The late King Edward declared the view from this point as one of the finest in his kingdom and that opinion is not likely to be disputed by anyone who has had the chance to stand there. Each hole is located in its own unique setting, providing magnificent views and challenges. The 4 par 3's are unique in that they each face a different compass point. Consequently, each poses a different challenge based on wind direction. If you want to post a good score, be prepared for a game of strategy, brains over brawn!

Pyle and Kenfig GC
Pyle and Kenfig Golf Club, affectionately known as 'P & K' with its lofty sand dunes hugging the South Wales coast of Porthcawl is situated in a wonderful stretch of golfing country.
Glorious views and historic associations adorn this undulating course with its natural hazard of hillocks, valleys and towering dunes. However serious the game, time must be made to appreciate the panoramic views. The Bristol Channel, the Gower Peninsula, Sker House and the magnificent Welsh Mountains can all be seen from various points.
Unusually for a links course, Pyle and Kenfig is laid out in two loops of nine. The original front nine is where to make a score because the back nine is a stiff test, especially when the wind is up.
The 11th hole, a 525-yard par five known as the Valley Hole, is where the dunes come in to play - from here on in, it's sheer entertainment. Drink in the view from the 14th tee, a 416-yard par four - the panorama towards the Gower Peninsula is stunning. Pyle & Kenfig's last three holes (all long par fours) are amongst the best closing holes in golf and will test the mettle of the most accomplished golfers.

Sand Moor GC
Sand Moor is situated 5 miles north of Leeds City Centre, with stunning views over Eccup reservoir. The course was designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie in 1926 - who sat on the very first Greens Committee at the club - and famously went on to design Augusta National.
Changes to the course took place in the late 1960's with advice from Henry Cotton and it is currently being updated by Andy Watson Golf Design, to help the course stay abreast of modern day equipment whilst remaining loyal to the original concept.
The course is perhaps best known for its four challenging par 3's - each of which were originally designed by Alister MacKenzie. Each par 3 varies in length, style and offers a different challenge.

Sandiway Golf Club, established in 1920 is a very highly-rated 18-hole course set in mixed heath and woodland and blessed with wonderful natural drainage due to its sandy substrate.
It was originally designed by Ted Ray, the first Ryder Cup Captain. In 1925, Harry Colt was commissioned to further the development and more recently, in 1955 the 2nd, 3rd and 4th holes were relocated to a design of Fred Hawtree.
From the white tees and at par 70 with standard scratch 72 the course ensures an enjoyable test of any golfers' ability whatever his or her handicap.
One hundred years after its inauguration, the club is regarded as one of the best courses in Cheshire.

Sandwell Park GC
Sandwell Park Golf Club is a magnificent undulating heathland Championship course set in the heart of the West Midlands and on the border of Sandwell Valley.
Designed in the late 19th Century by Harry S Colt, one of the most highly regarded course architects of his time, it is widely regarded as one of the finest in the area.
It was originally formed as West Bromwich Golf Club in 1895 and moved to its current site at Sandwell Park at Christmas 1897.
Every year the Club hosts the West Midlands Amateur Strokeplay and the Staffordshire Boys Open competitions. 2016 saw the Club successfully host the prestigious England Golf Men’s County Championship finals.
The course provides a good test for golfers of all abilities, as not only do you need to be accurate from the tee, you need a good touch to negotiate the renowned borrows and speed of the greens. Any visitors coming to Sandwell Park Golf Club will truly enjoy a memorable golfing experience.

The Addington GC
Designed in 1913 by John Frederick Abercromby, The Addington is a fine course which will challenge and excite golfers of all abilities.
Affording expansive views of the metropolis from hilltop tees like those at the 14th and 16th, the fairways wander through mature pine and birch trees and create a feeling of intimacy in stark contrast to the looming mast of Crystal Palace and the backdrop provided by the Natwest Tower, Canary Wharf and the Shard.
On 10 July 1913, Addington Golf Syndicate was incorporated with a share capital of £1000. The top signatory for the syndicate was JF Abercromby (‘Aber’), an excellent golfer who, despite having no previous knowledge of golf course design, had undertaken management of the Worplesdon and then Coombe Hill course builds. The Addington was soon to become his third and finest course and Aber stayed there until his death in 1935.
There was much controversy over the building of the first ‘old’ course at The Addington; a month after the syndicate was incorporated a local paper wrote: “New golf grounds, like new picture palaces, are springing up apace. I understand the latest intention is to provide a golf ground in Addington Park, where the shades of previous archbishops may protest in vain against this sacrilege”.
The article went on to say “I understand the use of this ground is to be strictly confined to people of a very high circle – and indeed that no one under a peer of the realm is to be allowed to peer over those realms of past Episcopal glory.” This account proved to be very true; between the two World Wars, The Addington became one of the three most favoured clubs surrounding London, its members being of such high standing that it became informally known as ‘Royal Addington’ – indeed, King George VI became Patron of the Club in 1937.

The Lambourne Golf Club
Lambourne Golf Club is an exclusive members club set in 180 acres of breath-taking parkland with magnificent old oak and beech trees and six picturesque lakes.
Situated in Burnham, Buckinghamshire close to the M4, M40 & M25 and just 25 miles from central London, it is one of the region's most prestigious private golf clubs.
First opened in 1991 based upon designs by Donald Steel, one of the leading golf course architects of the latter half of the twentieth century who was involved in the design of some famous courses such as Killarney, Formby, Skibo Castle and Woodhall Spa, Bracken course to name a few.
West Surrey GC
West Surrey located near Godalming, and close to Guildford, is a friendly private members club blessed with one of the finest courses in the South East.
Set within enviably tranquil Surrey Hills countryside, the 6482 yard Par 71 course designed by Herbert Fowler in 1910 is ranked as one of Golf Monthly's Top 100 courses in England.
It presents an interesting challenge to golfers of all abilities, with tree lined, watered fairways leading to superb sand based USGA standard greens that provide a high quality putting surface all year round.

Whittington Heath GC
There is no doubt that Whittington Heath (described by Martin Hawtree as “classic golfing country”) is a club with character, the more you play the course, the more you wish to, and in the clubhouse you will find an atmosphere of friendliness so necessary to complete a perfect day.
The superbly well-drained course is playable all year round. The trademark heather and gorse is tough enough to provide a challenge, but forgiving enough to offer no more than fair punishment. There is always a feeling of total fulfilment and satisfaction when the handicap golfer completes a sub-par round and when you get it right, you have every reason to feel pleased with yourself.
There’s always something to test your handicap. A narrow fairway to drive into; rough that might mean a sideways recovery; and greens with subtle borrows that could mean the difference between a birdie and a four-foot par saver. Round-by-round, the different challenges ensure you’ll never tire of playing Whittington Heath.
Worksop is very much a classic English woodland/heathland course and was made famous around the world by the exploits of its most famous ever member - Lee Westwood. The former European No.1, as far as reports go, still holds the course record on his home course and has been known to 'drop by' on occasion. There are a number of superb holes on this enjoyable but testing layout, most notably the 9th and 10th, two par fives that will test your long-iron play and shot making from inside 90-yards. The course then enjoys a good run of holes from the 12th onwards and finishes with the superb 18th - a par three right beside the clubhouse.
The challenges are not in the course’s length but in the tightness of the holes -many are lined with silver birch, gorse and bracken- so wielding the driver at every opportunity may not always be the wisest choice! The firm nature of the fairways means that you might find that a long iron or three-wood travels further than you might initially think.
Adding to its enviable reputation the club has recently been chosen to stage the 2022 English Amateur Championship.
