Much of the course is built on the site of the Medieval village of Immingham, which surrounded the closely situated St Andrews Church. Opened in 1975 as a nine hole course and extended in 1984, it was built on the land that is one of the few examples of Medieval strip-farming that still exists.
The exaggerated undulations provide the golfer with many differing stances and lies, truly rewarding the accuracy of the shot. the course is currently just over 6200 yards in length of the whites and is demanding of both accuracy and distance. The fairways are closely mown and shaped, with medium light rough to trap wayward shots.
Most holes are lined by a selection of beech, firs and conifers. This gives a good degree of seclusion between holes, and adds to the difficulty. Features like the dykes, boundary hedgerows, and ridge and furrow land are the main characteristics of the course, these natural features have been complemented by the addition of many trees, bunkers and two large ponds. The section of the course around holes 11 to 13 is at or below sea level and in the early days was prone to severe flooding (as happened in summer 2007). In February 2006 a concerted effort was made to drain these areas. Further drainage work was carried out in 2007/ 08.
Wildlife on the Course
Look out for the family of deer who can often been seen grazing in the field to the left of the 13th hole.
There is a huge colony of squirrels especially on the front nine holes.
A couple of buzzards can often be seen and heard patrolling their territory above the trees around the 11th and 12th holes.
