“Whilst I don’t wish Covid to last one more day than is necessary, I can’t help but think that our 5th Anniversary event last Thursday was probably the best of the lot. The whole thing ran like clockwork, the course was in great condition and the sun shone throughout – what more can you ask for!

The fact that it ran so well was in no small part down to you, the catering team and even young Oliver who eventually found his range on the 10th – he should have had a few more practice shots because very few of the later teams managed to beat him – so thank you for all your help and if you ever need a reference from someone thinking of holding their golf day at NGC, just send them my way and I will soon convince them. Kind regards & thanks again"

"Course itself was in excellent condition apart from some tee areas were a bit patchy and uneven. That's the only negative I could give about the course and facilities tho. A great day on the course lovely fairways and very nice greens. I was half hr late due to traffic and tbe shop pro let me and my 2 friends tee off wen I arrived. Very good of him to squeeze us in as we had booked thru golf now. . I would without doubt recommend this course to anyone. Good value for money and friendly staff including behind the bar."

"Great hidden gem, I had driven passed this course numerous times and thought it looked very ordinary... how wrong was I. From the roadside the drivable par 4 didn't look anything special but looks are deceiving. As you arrive the long road winds through the course giving you glimpses of what's to come. I was very impressed with the great looking clubhouse and the well stocked Pro shop.The course is is very well maintained and starts with a drivable par 4 and there's a couple more making it interesting, risk or reward.... As for the greens, wow they are quick and there's a few with one and two tiers so make sure your pin high otherwise you may be three putting. Great course we'll done Normanton, I'll definitely be a regular visitor."

"An excellent challenging course in magnificent condition. Played it as a mixed four all and the Ladies found some of the holes a little too challenging , particularly the long par 5s and the fiendish 18th. However they loved the first half. Fairly wide fairways, so not a ball gobler Personally I thought it one of the better courses in West Yorkshire an can’t wait to play it again"

"The greens had just been worked on but were still running true. The fairways were in good condition despite the lack of Irwin. I thought the renovation of the paths were excellent and improved the look and feel of the course" 'Stormin' Norman' (Golf Now Player)

Every year we have enjoyed outstanding support from Mike Biddles & his team to hold a thoroughly professional event which has the players coming back year after year.

Hi Mike & Gary
A quick note to say “thank you very much” to you both for your help in making last week’s event a great success – not just on the day, but getting all the details right in the planning stage.

Hi Mike Just a quick note to say thank you to the team at NGC for all your efforts for last Friday. I certainly enjoyed the day and the feedback from everyone was very positive both in respect of the course and the food. Many thanks Steven
Once again Normanton came up trumps as perfect hosts for our Finals day. All the club members together with Committee members and staff made us most welcome and the course was in great condition and a good test for the players. I particular I would like to thank Mike and Jenny for their organisation and good food and in making sure all 50 participants were watered and fed! Also Gary for making sure we had all we needed on the golfing front. John Grimbleby

On behalf of all the Professionals and PGA North Region staff present at the 'PGA North Region Qualifying School', event may I thank you, the greens staff and everyone connected with Normanton Golf Club for all your efforts and kind hospitality throughout the duration of the event. It was greatly appreciated. I thought the golf course was in great condition for the time of year and it was clear that the greens staff had put a lot of hard work in to preparing the course. The comments from the competing Professionals were equally favourable. Please pass on my thanks to Dave and his team for their assistance in keeping the golf course playable on the second round. Without their efforts we would have certainly struggled to complete the 36 holes. Andrew Chadwick,
Tournament Controller
After a hectic week I have the chance to reflect upon the events of the past week and must thank you Jennifer and Gary for all the help you gave us in organising the Leeds Open Championship last Tuesday. Nothing was too much trouble and the event was a success. Needless to say the Greenkeeper and his staff should be congratulated on producing an excellent test of golf on a well manicured course which cant have been easy with the weather we have had recently. Mike and Jenny were superb and extremely well organised with the food arrangements which help to make the event run smoothly. You all made us very welcome thank you. Would you please pass on to your Committee and members our thanks for allowing us the courtesy of the course and your facilities. John Grimbleby
