A 'MUST' Play for Visitors to Sheffield
Recognised as one of the district's finest, Abbeydale provides a memorable golfing experience for players of all handicaps and retains some of the best views of the Derbyshire countryside to be seen anywhere from Sheffield.
The course is renowned for its beautifully manicured appearance, undulating greens and beautiful views and surroundings. In recent years the course has benefitted from the installation of a new fairway drainage system, allowing play when other courses have been closed in adverse weather conditions.
The continued improvement of our course and club house has not arisen purely by chance. Successive generations of Abbeydale members have given their time and honest endeavour towards the betterment of the club. Set in the beautiful Beauchief Estate, the course was designed by the famous architect Herbert Fowler, also renowned for other such designs as Walton Heath and The Berkshire. Fowler's design ethos of strategy and reward are apparent.
The club has seen extensive improvements over the last few years, providing superb facilities with a welcoming feel. The lounge, with its relaxed views over the course, provides an ideal setting for visitors to ponder over their round of golf. The delightful restaurant welcomes the diner to sample of some of the best cuisine in Sheffield and is the perfect finale to an enjoyable day at Abbeydale.
