A message for our Members

We are very grateful for another year, when you have continued to support us by playing your golf at Sudbrook Moor Golf Club.  Thank you for your commitment, particularly when you take advantage of our Pre-Christmas special Unbroken Loyalty Membership Fee, giving us confidence that our somewhat unique system of golf club membership will be viable again into another year.  Membership at Sudbrook Moor has evolved into a structure that provides a very low financial commitment, with modest pay-and-play fees and it would be difficult to replicate this at another golf club.  Successful as the system has been so far, it holds no guarantees of meeting running costs, except for a steady flow of Members week by week, deciding to play golf at Sudbrook Moor.  In this we trust and in this we remain committed: to an ever improving golfing venue, keeping fees as low as possible in order to provide the best possible value.

There are many things that we are thankful for.  The land drains very well, providing us with a golf course that is in good playing condition all year round.  We are in a very pleasant part of the countryside enjoying some of the best weather.  Our plot of land works well with ample parking, Clubhouse, Changing Rooms, Golf Shop and Practice Facilities, including the Driving Range, Putting Greens, Chipping Green and Practice Bunker.  Most of all, there is a friendly atmosphere around the golf club and the credit for this we give you, the Members, with our grateful thanks.                     .

As well as these assets, over which we have little control, we are a proprietary owned golf course, committed to putting our Members first.  An example of this, differentiating us from other golf clubs, is that we try to keep the Tee open for play, with very few reservations, so that our Members can turn up and play almost anytime.  To this end, we do not have visiting Golf Societies, which is a necessity that most other golf clubs are committed to financially, thereby closing their courses to Members for long periods of time.  In addition, we do our best to make every visit you make to your golf club an experience that is as enjoyable as possible.  We are so fortunate to have staff who are naturally friendly and helpful.  It is vitally important that we keep our service the best we can offer and we will implement any refinement, if it offers benefit to the majority of the membership.  Thank you when you share your observations and feedback with us.

Golf is recognised to be one of the best participation sports providing a lifelong leisure activity.  It offers fresh air and gentle exercise with your friends, whilst always making new friends.  In fact, it is not surprising that a Swedish study indicates that playing golf adds years to our lives!  So whether you come along to Carlton Scroop to have a round on the Putting Green and a coffee in the Clubhouse or you are here to win the Club Championship, we thank you for your support and wish you many more years of enjoyable golf at Sudbrook Moor Golf Club.

SUDBROOK MOOR GOLF CLUB makes it easy for you to play golf, providing affordable, quality golf, in a friendly atmosphere.   Situated 6 miles North East of Grantham, the club was created and developed by award winning PGA professional Tim Hutton and is managed with the help of his wife Judith and family, Ben, Simon and Fiona.  An ideal setting for both starters and more experienced players, the course is testing, without being too demanding upon your stamina.   Holes range from 130 to 430 yards.   Other practice facilities include a Driving Range with top quality tee mats and golf balls, putting greens, chipping green and a practice bunker.

The original course of 6 holes was laid out in 1986.   This was followed by the purchase of another larger field in 1990, when the new 9 holes gained English Golf Union affiliation.   Following the acquisition of the old railway line in 1997, the course was redesigned with 2 completely new holes.   This provides a more spacious set up with added length, leaving the practice ground, which was once part of the first fairway, standing alone.   The second 9 holes is played to different flags, providing an 18 hole experience.   (see Course map and Scorecard )   The 12 bay Driving Range, Coaching Bay, Golf Shop, Mower Store and Changing Facilities were developed in 2005.

Sudbrook Moor Golf Course is maintained and developed with the latest techniques and equipment of Fineturf, one of the countrys leading turf care companies.  With a policy of ongoing improvements and refinements, Sudbrook Moor is now considered by many to be the best 9 hole golf course and golf facility in the area, offering great value for money.

PGA Professional and Director of Golf Tim Hutton, started his career with 6 years as Assistant Professional to 5 time Ryder Cup Captain, Dai Rees CBE and travelled extensively as a tournament player.   He was Club Professional at Sleaford Golf Club for 12 years before designing and building Sudbrook Moor.   Tim is an Honorary Member of the Golf Foundation and has received The Sir Henry Cotton Award for meritorious services to junior golf.   Tim is a Fellow of The Professional Golfers Association and has been a Midland PGA Professional of the Year, a title since held by Lee Westwood.

It is 25 years since Tim Hutton left his position as club professional at Sleaford Golf Club to create a new venture with his family at Carlton Scroop. With 20 years in the golf industry to that date, Tim had identified a need for a place that encouraged people to try golf. At the time golf was often perceived to be exclusive, expensive and not always friendly towards anyone wanting to take up the game, particularly children. Furthermore, the only venues that were readily available to budding golfers were limited to seaside pitch and putts and crazy golf. 
Tim owed his career in golf to Boston Golf Club with the encouragement of the members and the mentoring of Club Professional, Terry Squires. Up to 25 years ago Tim had not seen anything that compared with Boston for the inclusiveness that he experienced there in the 1960s. As a result of this, he founded Sudbrook Moor Golf Club on the principal of Affordable, Quality Golf for All, in a Friendly Environment.
Since then thousands of local people have experienced the thrill of golf for the first time at Carlton Scroop. A large proportion of the members of local courses, many of these developed in the 1990s, hit their first golf ball at Sudbrook Moor. However, with good all year round ground conditions, the golf course is now well established and is attracting and retaining many golfers in its own right.
The Junior golfing programme has produced several outstanding players, non more so than 2008 Lincolnshire Amateur Champion, Danny Keddie, who is now on a golf scholarship in Tennessee.  Danny started at the age of 6 and owes much of his competitive prowess to Sudbrook Moor members, who allowed him to join them in club competitions, just as Tim had experienced in his early days at Boston Golf Club.
Assisted by his wife Judith and sons Simon and Ben, without any subsidy or grant, the family have ploughed everything back into maturing the golf course and the facility that it is today. Judith, a physical education teacher, is Club Secretary and Junior Organiser. A PGA Qualified Professional with 17 years of tournament and coaching experience, Ben has recently taken over from his father as Head Coach. Fineturf, developed by elder son Simon into one of the countries leading turf production, installation and maintenance companies, manages the golf course. Simon has upgraded the 9 hole golf course with many improvements creating an 18 hole experience by enhancing the second round, which is played to different greens and flags.
Spending the first 6 years of his career as personal assistant to Dai Rees CBE, 5 times Ryder Cup Captain and golf star of the post war years, Tim Hutton has received national recognition with the Sir Henry Cotton Award for outstanding services to junior golf and is an Honorary Member of the Golf Foundation. As a Midland PGA Professional of the Year, a title since held by Lee Westwood, Tim is now a Fellow of the Professional Golfers Association. Drawing on this experience in the current financial climate, the Hutton family are committed, more than ever, to provide the area with affordable, quality golf for all, in a friendly environment.
