Ashby Decoy Golf Club

18 Hole Par71 Course, Pro Shop

The parkland course is flat but beautifully enhanced with fine specimens of indigenous silver birch and oak trees. There are also two excellent par 4 practice holes, which become part of the course during the winter to allow repair work to be carried out on the main course.

All visitors will experience a first class welcome from the experienced Pro shop staff, first class caterers and administration team.

Founded in 1935, Ashby Decoy Golf Club has developed into a superb 18 hole golf course. Rich in local wildlife, the course provides a great challenge for golfers at all levels.

Founded in 1935 on poor quality agricultural land of sandy sub-soil nature by leasing 70 acres from the Ashby Decoy farming estate to provide nine-holes for 27 founder members. By 1947 the whole estate of 150 acres had been purchased and 18 holes established.

The course, somewhat uniquely, has 20 holes - 18 of which form a summer course of 6,281 yards par 71 with five par threes. The course is flat and very well provided with indigenous silver birch and oak trees. 

The greens have a sprinkler system and the main fairways have sprinklers all lifted to an on-going irrigation programme. The seventh hole - the avenue - and the 16th hole, 'James Folly', are holes that visitors remember long after their visit.
