Golf in Rutland

Rutland is the smallest county in England, measuring just 16 miles by 16 miles. The county has two historic market towns Oakham and Uppingham, and 54 beautiful villages spread across the rolling, rural landscape.  At the county centre lies Rutland Water, an attraction for the Normanton Church Museum, watersports and for family recreation and outdoor enthusiasts alike. The British Birdwatching Fair is held at the Egleton Nature Reserve every August.

In the south lies Eyebrook reservoir, popular with anglers and bird watchers.  Among the villages there is Wing, site of one of the last remaining turf maze and Clipsham with the old Yew tree lined carriage drive to Clipsham Hall. Also worth a visit are Oakham Castle and Rutland County Museum in Oakham town centre.
