Tee-up for free at Hillies golf course

Free Golf Fridays have been launched at Hillies Golf Course in Wombwell, giving golfers the chance to try out the facilities for nothing throughout February.

The 9-hole par 31 course, which is operated by BPL, already offers some of the best value pay and play golf in the region. Golfers can also take a break in the comfortable bar which is open for food and drinks throughout the day.

Facilities manager Simon Potter explains: “Many local golfers don’t realise what a great course they have on their doorsteps, so we are inviting them in to see what they are missing!

“The Hillies course is a bit of a hidden gem – it has fantastic views, large greens and some challenging holes, which will suit more advanced golfers but are also accessible to beginners. Our friendly staff are happy to help and we also offer free club and trolley hire.”

During Free Golf Fridays, phone the course on 01226 754433 and register your details to play 9 holes at any time during opening hours, subject to availability. The course is currently open from around 8am-3pm depending on the light and the usual pay and play cost for 9 holes is £5.90.
