Join us at the beautiful Rotherham Golf Club to celebrate LIVING GREEN. Rotherham is 70% rural, green space, a wonderful NATURAL ASSET. The Trans Pennine Trail weaves through Rotherham’s beautiful countryside, which is complemented by canals, rivers, wetlands, nature reserves, golf courses, sailing, sport facilities and award winning parks. Peppered with historical buildings and an extensive and cultural lifestyle mix, this green space connects our towns and villages as GREAT PLACES to live and enjoy.

Rich in cultural heritage, with a history that dates back to 1066, the Golf Club has some wonderful folklore, and for centuries its grounds at Thrybergh Park was home to some of the county’s most noble families.
