Three Fabulous Circular Walks from New Mills Golf Cl
At present there is no golf allowed but that doesn’t stop anyone enjoying the fabulous scenery and countryside which surrounds the club. Click on the link below to download a printable map and descriptions of 3 extremely pleasant short walks, ranging from 2 to just over 5 miles. All the walks start and finish at the club. Parking is free and Half Way House will be open at weekends for takeaway drinks and snacks so do please call in.
Boots or wellies are recommended on each of the walks, especially after the recent spell of heavy rain which has made some parts of the walks a bit muddy! Enjoy your walk!

On-Going Work on the Course
Drainage: The green’s team of Nigel, Ian Jake and Chris have been exceptionally busy during the early part of lock down 2 as the photos below show. To date they have put in 135m of drainage on the 6th together with 80 metres on the 10th along with cutting out a further 120m of turf on the 10th and 11th ready for more drains to be installed!
Shoe Cleaning Compressor: Arthur and Neil have dug out the old base and installed a new one for the new shoe cleaning compressor near half way house for players coming off the 18th
Tees: Marie-Anne, Jackie, Alison and Angela have retreated the tee markers and Tim Johnson has made new plates to go on them.
A huge thank you to all the staff and volunteers whose contributions help make the club so special!
Use of Winter Mats
Winter mats must be used on all mown areas including tees. If anyone needs to purchase a mat these are for sale in the Pro Shop.
As a club we are going from strength to strength and are constantly making improvements to the course, clubhouse & facilities.
Currently, we have limited space to warm up and practice but please, do not practice near the 18th green, 13th green or 14th tee when hitting balls. The course is in great condition and we don’t want divots around these areas.
Areas you can practice in are from just next to the putting green on the wall side. Hitting up towards the practice flag or 14th tee direction. (Please do not aim for 13th green!)
When the course is quiet and only when the course is quiet, another good practice area is from the rough near the wall behind the 13th green hitting up the 14th fairway. Please do not use the 14th tee for practice.
We are currently in the process of installing a double bay warm up net for when COVID-19 guidelines allow us to use them again
