 "Totally organised catering of a very high standard. Great practice facilities, very helpful staff in every department – all topped off with the purest putting surface you could ever want. MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL"

Tony Coles (Dorset)

 "I played at Stanton on the Wolds in the English Seniors Counties Championship in October 2018, the only word to describe the experience was outstanding. The clubhouse is traditional with a great atmosphere, the staff friendly and welcoming, with nothing being to much trouble, food was excellent. Now for the course, the layout is parkland, tight fairways but fair, the greens are the best I have ever played on in my 30+ years of playing top courses. If you are thinking of visiting Stanton on the Wolds GC....DO.... you will love it. Thank you to all the staff, members and Volunteers for your hospitality it has been second to none."

John Busby & The Dorset Team

"...the club raised the standard of hospitality to a new level. Particular mention of thanks must go to your members who refreshingly wanted to host the event and show off their club, please pass on our sincere congratulations to them all, they were simply exceptional at making everyone feel welcome and the service they provided was extraordinary with nothing being too much trouble. We also extend our sincere thanks to all the catering and bar staff who also provided a first class service. The players enjoyed the course and your green staff are to be congratulated, the tirelessly work done both prior and during ensured the presentation to the player’s was of the highest standard. The main talking point from the players was how good the Greens were; without doubt some of the best played on for a long time and were certainly appreciated by the team."

Ian Hulse (Secretary, Dorset County Golf Union)

 Dear Paul

"I'd like to congratulate you and all your staff at Stanton on the Wolds Golf Club for the excellent manner in which the English Seniors County Finals was organised and run. All the Countries clubs fairways have suffered from the drought but the superb greens more than compensated. Your volunteers, both in the clubhouse and out on the course, were outstanding. You, the course, and the members were a credit to the County."

Bob Ward (President, Nottinghamshire Union of Golf Clubs)

Good Afternoon Paul,

"I thought I would just drop you a note to say CONGRATULATIONS on hosting a great event. It was obvious that the club were extremely proud to host the event and had put a huge amount of planning and preparation work into making it the huge success it was. Every competitor I spoke to said what a friendly club Stanton on the Wolds is and how the members, staff and volunteers had made us feel so SPECIAL. The catering was excellent, bar staff looked after all our needs, pro shop really helpful and of course the green staff for preparing such magnificent putting surfaces. I don’t think I have ever heard so many players praise greens as I did this week. Well done to all involved. Please pass on thanks to your committee and all involved in making it such a great and enjoyable week.

All the very best "

Nigel Furniss (Notts GU Seniors Team Player)
