Welcome to Douglas Valley Golf Club

The Golf Course

In August 1996 Douglas Valley Golf Club opened its 9 holes golf course, designed by local renowned course designer Jeff Shuttleworth and constructed by South African Craig Cooke who reconstructed parts of the famous Loch Lomond course in Scotland and the Valderama course in Spain. The course is built to US specification with pure sand greens, the only one of its kind in the area, the par 32 course features 3 purpose built lakes and the river Douglas splits the course in two which makes for interesting and sometimes challenging play, it is an ideal course for the beginner who can play safe or the more adventurous challenger. Never a more tranquil setting could be found in the area with the beautiful Pennine hills as a backdrop and littered with wildlife from Canada Geese to the ever illusive Deer which if you are very lucky can be seen from time to time.
