Longcliffe G.C., Loughborough

Longcliffe G.C. is a testing and challenging golf course of 6625 yds. par 71. However as with many golf courses these days many of the fairway bunkers are irrelevant and only come into play for the mid/high handicap golfer. For the low handicap golfer a majority of the bunkers have become redundant. Some of the bunkering is also fairly ‘penal’ in its location and proposals have been drafted to make the fairway bunkering more strategic. The course was originally designed by Mr. T. Williamson in 1904 and because of the general age of the course it was felt that an historic style of bunkering for example similar to that of Harry Colt should be incorporated.
