Ruddington Grange is far more than just a golf course.
With its mix of history and modern facilities, set in delightful surroundings adjacent to its 18-holes, the venue is an ideal choice for weddings, conferences and social occasions.
Originally a large mansion, built in 1828, it had a series of high profile owners. Charles Paget, the Liberal MP for Nottingham, lived there until 1873 and he was succeeded by Sir Thomas Isaac Birkin, owner of the famous Birkin Lace Company.
In the 1930s The Grange was occupied by Frank Bowden, the founder of Raleigh Industries, who then sold it to Thomas Farr, the creator of Home Brewery. The house stood empty for seven years after Farr died but then Jack Johnson, a local property developer, decided to develop the surrounding buildings and create a golf course.
Now under the ownership of John Pownall, it has proved to be a perfect combination. The golf club is thriving with one of the finest courses in the county, and the Grange is firmly established as one of Nottinghamshire's premier facilities for functions of all types.
Situated on the outskirts of Ruddington, it's just three miles from Nottingham City Centre with easy access for those travelling by road, rail or via East Midlands Airport. With a secure on-site car park accommodating more than 100 cars, a choice of rooms to suit a variety of functions and an in-house catering team, the Grange really does offer the best of both worlds.
