Golf

In Rotherham there is no doubt that golf is a very popular way of spoiling a good walk. The championship course is at Lindrick Golf Club which doesn't quite qualify as Rotherham but hey, who's being picky. All right I know its usually me. If I remember rightly this course has the unusual distinction of being situated either side of the A57 Worksop Road which must cause a lot of fun.

Pitch & Putt, Novelty Golf

The facilities for crazy golf, Pitch & Putt and other forms of novelty golf seem to have disappeared from most of the parks in Rotherham. In Clifton Park the old crazy golf was closed when the park started being renovated but it looks in 2009 as if a new crazy golf course is being built over by the children's amusements: I can't think what else it might be. The putting green has all been filled in at Greasbrough Park. I can't comment on other parks because I don't know.
