The Colt Course is a 6 Hole Par 3 Course with Synthetic Putting Surfaces and Tees.
This initiative by Northamptonshire County Golf Club, directed at introducing beginners and youngsters to golfing facilities was funded by major sponsorships from two sources.
Sport England. This is the government agency responsible for developing a world-class community sports system and awards and allocates funds generated by the National Lottery.
Barclays Bank, through their “Spaces for Sport” program.
We are now in a position to offer a unique golfing experience to junior golfers through the use of floodlights on the Colt Course. With modern day demands on the family, weekend time becomes even more valuable. Therefore structuring midweek lessons can relieve some of the pressure and allow more juniors to enjoy golf. Rather than standing on the range hitting ball after ball we are very keen to provide a facility for juniors to PLAY golf and with the help of Barclays Sport for Spaces we can now offer this, even during the dark winter nights.

Our Colt Course is available for use by non-members. A small fee is payable via the pro shop for anyone wishing to use these facilities. Please check availability with the pro shop or the office.
The course was constructed by Southwest Greens of Georgia, USA to bring the look, feel and playability of natural greens, without the associated hassle and high costs of maintenance. Using quality construction techniques and professional design, Southwest Greens simulate natural bent grass and equal the quality associated with top natural turf putting greens.
They have installed practice greens for over 30 PGA pros, including Sergio Garcia, Vijay Singh and Jesper Parnevic - several celebrities including Samuel L Jackson, Justin Timberlake and Celine Dion, as well as over 9000 keen amateurs worldwide
When you practice on one of these greens, you will likely improve your putting stroke by being able to rely on consistent putts with a true roll from every position on the green. And being able to chip and pitch from any distance with confidence, knowing that the ball will stick and roll without having to repair pitch marks is something that amateurs and professionals alike appreciate.
Adult membership is available for the Colt Course only - See the Joining Our Club page.
At just £39.00 per year for Junior membership it's great value. Contact our Professionals for a membership form.
