The course at South Moor, remodelled by that most famous of golf course architects, Dr. Alistair MacKenzie winds between gorse, heather and bracken in a superb moorland layout. The large, slopey greens are a typical MacKenzie trait, guaranteeing that even when hit in regulation, the player will have to work hard with his putter to match par, harder still to make birdie. At 6,273 yards from the back tees, the course is hardly long by today's standards but with a premium on accuracy it would be foolish to try to overpower the course with the driver, particularly with out of bounds a factor on eleven holes. Perhaps the greatest testimony to MacKenzie's design is that, like all great courses, it continues to ask questions coming down the stretch. If you can protect a good score you can also improve it. It can be a tough test; the heather in full bloom is a wonderful sight but can be highly punitive and reluctant to release any balls that find it. Ultimately though, South Moor is a great challenge, a tough but fair examination of every part of the game. The clubhouse provides a great place for reflection. Take a drink into the conservatory, gaze out and up the eighteenth fairway and wonder how anyone could possibly miss such a wide-open area.... South Moor Golf Club extends a warm welcome to local, national and international visitors. As a most traditional club with high standards both on the course and in the clubhouse, seasoned golfers will truly enjoy the complete golf experience offered at South Moor.

Played here in May 2016 and without doubt one of the best courses I have played in the UK.

Great layout, great greens, friendly staff.
