Farthingstone Hotel & Golf Course,
Tel. 01327 361533.

Where is it?
The course is located half way between Towcester and Daventry, and is within 10 minutes of the M1 motorway.

What's it like?
Farthingstone Golf Course was established in 1973, and has grown into a fantastic golf course set in rural Northamptonshire. Some of the holes are quite narrow, with woodland, water, naturally sweeping fairways and carefully contoured greens. There are wide range of holes, with even a very demanding 600 yard par 5 hole. The course setting is beautiful and set in lovely countryside, which is quite and secluded.

The golf course has average facilities, and the course availability is always good. The price on a weekend is great value at £20. There are also 16 twin-bedded en suite rooms available.

This makes a pleasant change to some courses, with a lovely rural setting and a truly hidden golfing gem deep in the countryside of beautiful Northamptonshire. it is well worth a look-in if you're in the area.
