Welcome to Tankersley Park Golf Club, a hidden gem situated in the picturesque Park Lane, High Green, Sheffield. As a members club, this parkland course offers 18 holes of pure golfing pleasure in a setting with a rich and diverse history that dates back centuries. From an oak forest to a civil war battlefield, a baronial deer park to a coal and ironstone mining area, and even a battle-tank testing ground, the land has witnessed a remarkable journey through time.
Originally opened in 1907 and expanded to eighteen holes in 1924, the course was skilfully developed by Arthur Storey, a Golf Professional, Course Designer, Greenkeeper, and Golfing Guru. He expertly crafted a challenging and rewarding experience, especially for those with a penchant for accurate iron-play. While the fairways are now beautifully manicured, remnants of the land's industrial past can still be found in the form of bell pit miners' mounds scattered across the course. These mounds, products of Georgian and Victorian times, remind golfers of the area's coal and ironstone mining roots.
Despite its historical significance, Tankersley Park Golf Club has embraced modernity, with a modern and well-equipped clubhouse serving as the heart of the establishment. Visitors, small parties, societies, and seasoned golfers are all warmly welcomed, and treated as members for the day, ensuring a memorable and enjoyable golfing experience.
The course, which celebrated its centenary year in 2007, spans 6215 yards from the white tees and offers a par of 70. It is meticulously maintained, providing a fair yet formidable challenge for every club golfer. For those looking to improve their game, the club offers various services, including professional coaching from Ian Kirk, a pro shop with custom fitting and repairs, and a performance studio to fine-tune your swing.
So whether you're a history enthusiast, a golf aficionado, or simply seeking a delightful day on the green, Tankersley Park Golf Club promises a captivating and fulfilling experience for all who set foot on its hallowed grounds.
