A round of golf at Renishaw Park is definitely a game of two halves. The first nine is set in rolling parkland with six par 4s and three par 3s requiring good accuracy. The second nine is flat and more open with four par 5s, three par 4s and two par 3s. The golf course has been well known for a number of years for the quality of its greens, which are fast and true, some of the best in the area.Visit website>
