Phoenix Golf Club has evolved from its early beginnings as described below, into what has become a wonderful tree lined undulating meadowland course, that offers a very pleasant venue to test golfers of all abilities. The course measures 6181 yards  in length from the medal tees with a Par of 71 and a Standard Scratch Score (SSS) of 70. The fairways are predominantly meadow grass and are mowed with a contoured effect to give more character to the layout of individual holes, which in turn compliments the greens that have subtle borrows, are well bunkered but a pleasure to play to and to putt on. This can be seen from the presentation of photographs on display throughout the pages of our website. The current amateur course record of 64 was established by Chris Pearce on 2nd June 2012 and equalled by Jordan Perry on 29th June 2013. The Ladies record of 70 was scored by Pat Exton on 14th July 2005. Pat actually has now broken her own course record twice.


Phoenix Golf Club was officially established on 1st January 1932 by the workers of a local steelmaking firm, Steel, Peech & Tozer, although hearsay has it that golfers played golf on a few holes some time prior to this. The membership at this time comprised of just 22 founder members. It is recorded that four gentlemen went to management of Steel, Peech & Tozer and asked if they could be given permission to develop an area of scrubland and former arable land into a golf course. With no funds available the management allowed this subject to agreement that all work was done in the gentlemen's own time and at their own expense. They and their fellow members developed the golf course in a piecemeal style firstly to a nine hole course initially designed by Mr Tom Williamson and then in 1935 into fourteen holes. Much of the development work being done with simple handtools. The rest as they say is history and the present day members of Phoenix Golf Club owe these four gentlemen and their fellow members an enormous debt of gratitude.

The first official game was played over the first new nine holes in the winter of 1932 by Bert Douglas, Seth Hampshire, Morley Gladwin and Norrie Bacon, accompanied by fellows, Reg Brunyee, George Fox, George Copley and Mr Seaman the Groundsman. In 1949 Golf Course architect Mr C K Cotton drew up plans for an 18 hole layout and after securing land  to the North of Bawtry Road the new 18 hole golf course was officially opened in 1952.

The course like the clubhouse has seen many alterations over the years, and what we have now is the result of excellent forethought, hard work and dedication by the membership over the many, many years since its

The clubhouse in the early times was a simple wooden construction which is a far cry from the substantial buildings that now constitute Brinsworth Pavilion with its various function rooms and conference facilities. The Pavilion along with the outbuildings and all the sports areas has been developed into a superb complex that provides an eclectic mix of sports including cricket, football, squash, badminton, weight training, hockey, bowls, snooker and of course golf.

Our Professional Mick Roberts and his wife Julie are both PGA qualified and welcome visits to their shop where lessons can be booked, and golf equipment & clothing can be purchased.
