Golfing at College Pines

Firstly here is the scorecard for todays round

The Bandits Scorecard @ College Pines

The day was mild for a change, as it is half term there was no sign of any kids for all of us, a welcome break!

So at the firsf tee at 9.45 7 of us lads including @golfingcyclist were eager and chomping at the bit to get the golf going. As a group we hadn’t played collectively for nearly a year and it was great to catch up.

College Pines is situated on the outskirts of Clumber Park near Worksop. At £18 for the round its great value for money, we only teed off on one mat and every green was in play. The course was immaculate, and this is something considering the weather we have had lately.

I had a new piece of apparel today, a hat I won last year for basically talking crap, looks good doesnt it!


With a promise of not to talk utter shite off we went. All of us played at or below our handicap mark today and other than a couple of ropey holes we would have scored even better. I am really chuffed that I hit my handicap mark today, consistent golf feels great! @golfingcyclist is happy as he finally beat me by one shot today after handicap deductions, previously I had whooped his ass the last twice!

I would seriously recommend this course to anyone wanting to play this time of the year and still be able to play on tees and greens with excellent fairways. The greens were holding and ran true allowing for some confidence behind the putter or ‘Excalibur’ as it’s affectionately known! With a long start and finish this is a challenging yet very enjoyable course to play.

A big shout out to my pal Sturdey today (Donald on the card) who was -7 his handicap until the last two holes where he had a couple of nightmare holes. Today he was The Machine and played simply awesome. Chin up mate, he’s looking for his gun to shoot himself below at the 19th!
