The Revitalised Elegance of Owston Hall Hotel Golf Club
If you've been hunting for a course that balances a challenging layout with the comforts of a top-tier resort, look no further than Owston Hall Hotel Golf Club. Positioned just north of Doncaster, this parkland course is no stranger to the spotlight, hosting multiple PGA events, including four PGA Euro Pro Tour events. With its recent changes to soften a 7,000-yard behemoth into a more playable and enjoyable experience, Owston Hall has caught the attention of both seasoned golfers and newcomers alike.
Originally established in 1996, Owston Hall has a rich history but isn't one to rest on its laurels. The club's Development Programme has brought about the Black Course - a shorter layout designed to provide an accommodating and time-efficient game. For golfers of all skill levels, it's a welcome addition that adds a fresh layer of diversity to the facility. With 18 holes and a par 69, the main Robin Hood course itself stretches a comfortable 5,950 yards from the white tees.
As you'd expect from a resort club, Owston Hall offers more than just golf. After a day on the fairways, players can unwind in the clubhouse, which boasts a bar, restaurant, and even a snooker room. Head Professional Jason and his capable team are more than ready to assist with your needs, from booking a tee time to arranging golf tuition and repairs. The Pro Shop also provides a variety of equipment and trolley or buggy hire for those who want the full golfing experience.
But the splendour of Owston Hall doesn't stop at golf. This multi-faceted venue also offers an array of other amenities including a swimming pool, spa, and gym. For those looking to extend their stay, the onsite accommodation options range from a luxurious hotel to a cosy bed and breakfast. It's this combination of golfing excellence and hospitality that makes Owston Hall Hotel Golf Club a standout destination, not just in Yorkshire, but in the broader golfing landscape as well.
