Decide for yourself..I'm spiritually entwined with the landscape just like Robin 's name which is rooted in Sherwood, with many natural features called after me, like the 'Robin Hood 's Chair' rock formation and Robin Hood's stable, a cave at Papplewick.As a natural protector, my mission has been championed by rebellious and crusading spirits like Robin and our legacy has carried down the ages in many of Sherwood's other legendary characters.As the green man or the forest spirit of Robin, I'm your natural guide to Sherwood's 'Spirit of Robin' through the ages.

A computer controlled irrigation system ensures that the course stays in peak condition all year round and is rarely closed due to adverse weather conditions.
