Golf Course Review

The Hallamshire Golf Club is located between the City of Sheffield, South Yorkshire and the Peak District National Park. The 18 hole heathland is one of Yorkshire's finest golf clubs.

Hallamshire Golf Club History

A local newspaper proprietor, Christopher Leng, opened the golf course in 1897.
