SUDBROOK MOOR GOLF CLUB makes it easy for you to play golf, providing affordable, quality golf, in a friendly atmosphere.   Situated 6 miles North East of Grantham, the club was created and developed by award winning PGA professional Tim Hutton and is managed with the help of his wife Judith and family, Ben, Simon and Fiona.  An ideal setting for both starters and more experienced players, the course is testing, without being too demanding upon your stamina.   Holes range from 130 to 430 yards.   Other practice facilities include a Driving Range with top quality tee mats and golf balls, putting greens, chipping green and a practice bunker.

The original course of 6 holes was laid out in 1986.   This was followed by the purchase of another larger field in 1990, when the new 9 holes gained English Golf Union affiliation.   Following the acquisition of the old railway line in 1997, the course was redesigned with 2 completely new holes.   This provides a more spacious set up with added length, leaving the practice ground, which was once part of the first fairway, standing alone.   The second 9 holes is played to different flags, providing an 18 hole experience.   (see Course map and Scorecard )   The 12 bay Driving Range, Coaching Bay, Golf Shop, Mower Store and Changing Facilities were developed in 2005.

Sudbrook Moor Golf Course is maintained and developed with the latest techniques and equipment of Fineturf, one of the countrys leading turf care companies.  With a policy of ongoing improvements and refinements, Sudbrook Moor is now considered by many to be the best 9 hole golf course and golf facility in the area, offering great value for money.

PGA Professional and Director of Golf Tim Hutton, started his career with 6 years as Assistant Professional to 5 time Ryder Cup Captain, Dai Rees CBE and travelled extensively as a tournament player.   He was Club Professional at Sleaford Golf Club for 12 years before designing and building Sudbrook Moor.   Tim is an Honorary Member of the Golf Foundation and has received The Sir Henry Cotton Award for meritorious services to junior golf.   Tim is a Fellow of The Professional Golfers Association and has been a Midland PGA Professional of the Year, a title since held by Lee Westwood.

There are very few tee reservations at Sudbrook Moor Golf Club:
 
At Sudbrook Moor we believe in having the Course and its 1st/10th Tee Open for Play to Everyone as much as possible. There are only a few tee reservations during the year and we do not have visiting Societies.
(Groups of up to 12 are allowed but without tee reservation. Please let us know you are coming so we can make arrangements for you.)
 
The main tee Reservation occurs on the 2nd Saturday of each month. This is when the club holds its Major Monthly Qualifying Medal Competition. The 1st/10th Tee is Reserved from 1st Light until all Competitors have cleared the 10th Hole. Course usually re-opens for General Play at 12:30pm approx.
 
There is only one tee Reservation on a Sunday for the entire year and that is for the Gent's Club Championship. ( This will be the day following the Club's Monthly Medal on the second Saturday of the month in July )  The tee will be closed on the Sunday from approximately 6:40am to 10:40am.
 
There are a few Tee Reservations on Saturday afternoons from April until September for our A-Team's home league match fixtures. These dates are listed on the Fixtures and Events Page and also the 'What's Happening at a Glance' listings. The Tee will usually be reserved from 12:30pm to 4pm on these occasions.
 
The very few other Tee Reservations will be posted in advance, so please check the calendar and notices of these to avoid disappointment.

  This is the best 9 hole golf course I have ever played. It has matured well over the years and although it is relatively short with no par 5's, everything is relatively tight with greens to compliment and they have 18 pins. Some are on separate greens and some greens are shared, but it is nice to have the differences.
Accuracy does you far more good than being able to hit a long way and there is good shape to many of the holes. This course also has to be the best value 9 hole I have ever played. The quality the course is kept in is always very good and your green fee allows you to play as many times as you like all day. This is just ?12 in the week and ?14 on a weekend and cheaper still in winter.
I would highly recommend the course.
Value For Money: Good

  Recent Article:
It is 27 years since Tim Hutton left his position as club professional at Sleaford Golf Club to create a new venture with his family at Carlton Scroop. With 20 years in the golf industry to that date, Tim had identified a need for a place that encouraged people to try golf. At the time golf was often perceived to be exclusive, expensive and not always friendly towards anyone wanting to take up the game, particularly children. Furthermore, the only venues that were readily available to budding golfers were limited to seaside pitch and putts and crazy golf. 
Tim owed his career in golf to Boston Golf Club with the encouragement of the members and the mentoring of Club Professional, Terry Squires. Up to 25 years ago Tim had not seen anything that compared with Boston for the inclusiveness that he experienced there in the 1960s. As a result of this, he founded Sudbrook Moor Golf Club on the principal of Affordable, Quality Golf for All, in a Friendly Environment.
Since then thousands of local people have experienced the thrill of golf for the first time at Carlton Scroop. A large proportion of the members of local courses, many of these developed in the 1990s, hit their first golf ball at Sudbrook Moor. However, with good all year round ground conditions, the golf course is now well established and is attracting and retaining many golfers in its own right.
The Junior golfing programme has produced several outstanding players, non more so than 2008 Lincolnshire Amateur Champion, Danny Keddie, who is now on a golf scholarship in Tennessee.  Danny started at the age of 6 and owes much of his competitive prowess to Sudbrook Moor members, who allowed him to join them in club competitions, just as Tim had experienced in his early days at Boston Golf Club.
Assisted by his wife Judith and sons Simon and Ben, without any subsidy or grant, the family have ploughed everything back into maturing the golf course and the facility that it is today. Judith, a physical education teacher, is Club Secretary and Junior Organiser. A PGA Qualified Professional with 17 years of tournament and coaching experience, Ben has recently taken over from his father as Head Coach. Fineturf, developed by elder son Simon into one of the countries leading turf production, installation and maintenance companies, manages the golf course with talented Head Greenkeeper. James Sergeant.  Together they have upgraded the 9 hole golf course with many innovations, improvements and refinements, creating an 18 hole experience by enhancing the second round, which is played to different greens and flags.
Spending the first 6 years of his career as personal assistant to Dai Rees CBE, 5 times Ryder Cup Captain and golf star of the post war years, Tim Hutton has received national recognition with the Sir Henry Cotton Award for outstanding services to junior golf and is an Honorary Member of the Golf Foundation. As a Midland PGA Professional of the Year, a title since held by Lee Westwood, Tim is now a Fellow of the Professional Golfers Association. Drawing on this experience in the current financial climate, the Hutton family are committed, more than ever, to provide the area with affordable, quality golf for all, in a friendly environment.

Sudbrook Moor Golf Club and Driving Range      Updated 2016

All of the facilities and playing areas at Sudbrook Moor have been professionally designed and laid out with safety of use in mind.

This statement has been prepared by Tim Hutton, who currently has 54 years of experience in golf.   With 48 years as a professional golfer, his experience has been as a European Tour player, a golf club professional, a golf course designer and constructor, a golf coach, a retailer and a golf club director.

Sudbrook Moor was designed to accommodate beginners and established golfers.   The golf course was designed and routed in such a way as to minimize the danger from errant golf shots.   In addition to these considerations on the golf course, the teeing areas have been organized in such a way as to control where golfers accumulate, reducing the danger of serious injury from fast moving golf balls, including rebounds.

In the 30 years of Sudbrook Moor, to date, there have been very few incidents of injury on the playing areas.   These have been minor injuries incurred by golfers not standing in the appropriate places, when waiting for other golfers to play their shots.

A golf course, at best, is still a place where freak occurrences can cause serious injury.   As well as endeavoring to reduce these possibilities to the minimum, it is incumbent upon golfers to be aware of the dangers and to be vigilant in their pursuits.

Young golfers at the Junior Clinic are made aware of some of the dangers of golf, with a strict code of movement around the Driving Range.   They are further mentored on the golf course by established players during the Junior Intermediate competitions.

Sudbrook Moor is a "self service golf course" and it is assumed that golfers are aware of the implications and dangers of playing golf.

If there is bad visibility, golfers play at their own discretion.   If there is a risk of lightning, golfers are advised not to play.

Juniors are advised to play on the golf course and the driving range only with the full approval of their parents or guardians.
