Cheap Golf Discount Rates Nottingham - Discount Voucher Website

Even beginners and 'pay as you go' amateur golfers are now able to gain access to some of the oldest and most historic clubs in the country without feeling out of place or unwelcome. Websites such as - VoucherMania - include vouchers for golf gear and highlight the discounted rates that are available for green fees at many of the golf courses in the area.

Readers of this page meet regularly (at least once per week) throughout the year to play golf. We're not very good at playing golf (my most recent scores were 102, 92, 110 and 117!) but we always have a great laugh and enjoy a good walk and some fresh air! Sometimes we play nine holes on a course suitable for beginners, or we go somewhere a little more challenging - but we've helped complete novices around those golf courses too! Please see also - Local Golf Courses - page for details of some of our favourite clubs.

Next Golf: This Week!

New! Check Out Our Nottingham Golf Facebook Group Here! - Post your availability for playing golf, find new people to play golf with, meet new friends or share tips and money saving ideas.

A number of players (mostly beginners but some of intermediate / club standard) regularly meet at Cotgrave Golf Club, Chilwell Manor Golf Course or at Trent Lock Golf Course in Sawley / Long Eaton (the 9 hole course there has no dress code and is a very friendly place to enjoy a couple of hours playing golf). This weekend will be no different, and if you are able to take a couple of hours off work in the afternoon we'll be playing golf on weekdays throughout the year (even in winter) too.

This website is responsible for the creation of a football team, starting out as a five-a-side team then progressing to 11-a-side Sunday League Football in 2008. This is one of Nottingham's best football teams to join if you are an amateur, because we have regular social events and train once or twice per week, with weekend matches throughout the year.
