Woodhall Spa Golf Club is a private golf club in England, that is located to the north of Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire. The club was founded in 1891. In 1995 the club was purchased by the English Golf Union, who have since relocated their headquarters onto the site, which is now known as the National Golf Centre.
The National Golf Centre at Woodhall Spa, the Home of English Golf, invites you to experience our world-class golf courses and Academy, which is open to all.
We enjoy sharing our two magnificent courses – including the Hotchkin Course*, consistently rated among the world’s finest heathland golf experiences and ranked in Golf World magazine’s World Top 100 Golf Courses.
Woodhall Spa prides itself on catering fully for the needs of all our guests.
We will give you the warmest of welcomes and fine hospitality, whether you’re enjoying a golf break with friends, or visiting with a golf society or corporate golf day.
We offer a fantastic selection of golf breaks and golf packages to help you enjoy your visit to this beautiful, quiet corner of England, just 20 miles from the historic city of Lincoln.
Ranked among the World’s Top 100 Courses by Golf World magazine (25th), The Hotchkin Course at the National Golf Centre, Woodhall Spa, is consistently rated among the world’s finest heathland golf experiences and a favourite destination for golf breaks.
For more than a century, golf travellers have been welcomed to this exquisite heathland course, famous for its natural beauty, dramatic bunkering and distinct tactical challenge.
Each of The Hotchkin Course’s 18 holes is individually memorable, while the joy of every drive and crisply struck iron shot from firm, heathland turf makes for an unforgettable experience.
The Bracken Course, which opened in 1998, has evolved into a course of exceptional finesse that is appreciated and enjoyed every day by golfers of all abilities.
Hewn from a contrasting landscape of woodland and arable farmland, the fairways and greenside bunkers are more generous than those of The Hotchkin Course, while the large, welcoming greens are more approachable, yet require thought and touch to master the true-rolling putting surfaces.
What makes The Bracken Course both special and a pleasure to play is its reputation as a role model for contemporary golf course creation. Its wild flowers and wildlife habitats emphasise the importance of ecology and natural harmony, an area of expertise in which the English Golf Union offers thought leadership and professional advisory services.
