Payment information

After 12 months you may cancel your membership agreement at any time by giving one calendar month notice in writing to the shop at Normanby Hall Golf Course or by sending an email to memberships@northlincs.gov.uk

Your membership will continue to run after the initial 12 month period on a month by month basis until notice to cancel has been received.

To assist us in keeping the course in good condition we ask that you observe the basic rules of course etiquette.

They are intended to give players a basic understanding on what to do (and what not to do) on a golf course.


Players must:

  • Report to the pro shop at least 15 minutes before your scheduled tee off time and also immediately before you go out to play
  • Always start from the first tee unless permission to start from another tee has been given by the Golf Professional.
  • Replace all divots, repair pitch marks before moving off and rake over all footprints in bunkers
  • Not take trolleys, buggies or golf bags onto the greens
  • Not play any shot until it is safe to do so
  • Shout “fore” if you think a stray shot may hit someone

Dress code

Players must wear:

  • A shirt or t-shirt with a collar at all times. Vests are not acceptable.
  • Trousers or tailored shorts. Jeans and tracksuit bottoms are not permitted.
  • Golf shoes or flat soled shoes.

Pace of play

Players are asked to observe the following:

  • Be ready to play when it is your turn
  • Walk briskly between shots and if possible decide which club to use for your next shot before you reach the ball
  • Do not take an excessive number of practice swings
  • Carefully watch shots that are hit off line
  • If you play a bad shot and suspect the ball might be lost, play a provisional just in case
  • Signal players in the group behind to play through when searching for a lost ball
  • Before putting, always leave your bag or trolley alongside the green nearest to the next tee
  • When you have completed the hole, clear the green quickly and mark your scorecard as you walk to the next tee
  • Be conscious of your pace and let through groups that are playing quicker
  • If there is a clear hole in front of you, and the following group have caught you up and are waiting, try to wave them through – especially if they are a smaller group (for example, a two-ball versus a four-ball).

The course at Normanby Hall has been re-numbered to return to the original layout. It also offers two nine hole loops.

First hole – Chestnuts

The opening hole consists of a left hand dog leg from tee to green with strategically placed copses on both sides of the fairway. The premium being on a straight drive leaving a short iron to the elevated green.

Second hole – Woodside

There are four bunkers protecting the green: an accurate shot is required because of the surrounding woodland.

Third – Devil’s Elbow

For the handicapped golfer this is the most difficult par four on the course due to the 90° dog leg 200 yards from the tee. No corner cutting is possible owing to the height of the firs on the left: second shot has to carry the beck to the well protected elevated green.

Fourth hole – Kestrels

A fairly easy par four best approach to the green from the left hand side of the fairway: sloping green lies in a hollow with the protected bunkers hidden from view.

Fifth hole – Hawthorns

The drive over the beck is from an elevated tee with 70 yard carry to the fairway. The hole plays a slightly dog leg due to the strategically placed bunker 220 yards from the tee.

Sixth hole – Long Way Back

This is the first par five. An accurate tee shot needed because of the beck and trees running the length of the hole on the left and the bunker on the right. An accurate second shot needed to avoid the bunker in the centre of the fairway 100 yards short of the green.

Seventh hole – Twin Traps

This is the most difficult hole on the course. The drive is into a bottleneck 20 yards wide between two bunkers 230 yards from the tee. The wood and beck is on the right and heavy rough on the left. The McKenzie Green is offset to the fairway protected by hillocks and bunkers.

Eighth hole – Thru-The-Gap

The most difficult par three played through an avenue of trees over the beck to another well protected McKenzie Green.

Ninth hole – Pigeon Court

A long carry to the fairway places you in position to navigate the right hand dog leg. The second shot to be played into the left hand side of the fairway: this then allows a view of the green which is protected by a large bunker 35 yards short of the green, back dropped by pine trees.

Tenth hole – The Oaks

The beautifully positioned tee half surrounded by pines presents a deceptively open fairway when in fact the drive must be placed to the left or right to negotiate the tree positioned 80 yards short of the green.

Eleventh hole – Bridle Path

A difficult par four out of bounds down the left hand side: slight dog leg to the left: a large Elm tree 220 yards from the tee leaves a down hill approach to the well protected elevated green.

Twelfth hole – Double Trouble

An accurate drive is demanded from an elevated tee because of the out of bounds and bunker on the left and the trees, beck and bunker on the right. The second shot can either be placed down the line of the drive or over the trees and beck to the alternative fairway making sure to avoid the bunker.

Thirteenth hole – Spring Tee

A straight forward par three hole over the beck to a hidden green, surrounded by bunkers with only the top of the flag visible.

Fourteenth hole – Bagmoor

This is the first of the very good finishing holes. An accurate drive is called for because of the out of bounds on the left and the beck on the right. Further complications are the bunkers positioned 230 yards from the tee. The offset green should be approached from the right hand side of the fairway which rises gradually from tee to green.

Fifteenth hole – Quarryside

This hole is very similar to the previous one, being uphill from tee to green with out of bounds on the left. The hole is made more difficult by the two grass bunkers 230 yards from the tee which forces a dog leg.

Sixteenth hole – The Alley

A straight forward par three with a McKenzie Green surrounded by bunkers.

Seventeenth hole – Ridgeway

This is a genuine par five unreachable in two by even the best. A long carry to the fairway out of bounds along the left with copses, heavy rough and fairway bunker on the right. A feature of the hole is the strategically placed grass bunker 160 yards from the green which demands carrying the bunker distance to avoid a blind shot to the green.

Eighteenth hole – Peacocks

A magnificent finishing hole. Tee set among the trees presenting the player with a slight right hand dog leg round a copse of trees and once again a strategically placed bunkers 200 yards from the tee on the right and out of bounds running down the left hand side. The second shot is played to a well guarded elevated green set against the background of the magnificently positioned Club House.
