The website says: Are you up for the challenge of night orienteering? The Lees Hall map has been remapped by Oli Johnson and extended to include Coneygree Wood. Lees Hall Golf Course offers a mix of fast runnable open areas interspersed with areas of woodland, while Coneygree is a typical Sheffield ancient woodland with a wide mix of vegetation and streamlined valleys. There are a choice of 4 courses catering for experienced orienteers and newcomers alike: easier courses remain on the golf course, while the harder courses extend to Coneygree Wood. Non-members are welcome.
