Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire: The Hotchkin Course, Woodhall Spa, consistently rated among the world’s finest heathland golf experiences, has announced its 2011/12 winter pricing that allows visitors to play from just £49.
Ranked 25th in Golf World Magazine’s World Top 100 Golf Courses and third in its Top 100 Courses in England, The Hotchkin is located on the outskirts of the leafy Edwardian spa town, just 20 miles from Lincoln, and represents heathland golf at its best, boasting some of the most dramatic bunkering in the UK.
And as many UK courses get set to battle the worst of the winter weather, The National Golf Centre has a reputation for offering some of the UK’s finest golf thanks to its easily draining sandy soil base that helps keep the fairways and greens in beautiful condition all-year-round.
The newly announced winter green fee rates for The Hotchkin commence from November 1 with a full round costing £49 for English Golf Union (EGU) and English Women’s Golf Association (EWGA) affiliated visitors, rising to £64 for non-affiliated players.
Set among pines, birch and broom, The Hotchkin was originally designed by Harry Vardon in 1905. Further modifications were made to the course by Harry Colt prior to World War I and then subsequent alterations by Colonel S V Hotchkin in the 1920/30s set the tone for today’s lay-out which thousands of golfers enjoy each year.
Its sister course – the highly acclaimed Bracken which opened in 1998 – also offers tremendous winter value with prices starting at £34 for EGU/EWGA members, rising to £44 for non EGU/EWGA affiliated players.
Richard Latham, Director of Golf Operations at The National Golf Centre, Woodhall Spa said: “There are very few of the world’s great golf courses that offer the level of accessibility afforded to golfers at The National Golf Centre and that is why this venue has, in my opinion, become such a firm favourite with the many golfers, societies and corporate customers who visit us to experience the world-class golf we have on offer.”
Guests planning a trip to The National Golf Centre are advised to book tee times in advance (a £20 per person non-refundable deposit is required). For more details please call the Golf Reservations team on 01526 352511 or e-mail booking@englishgolfunion.org
