Golf in Shropshire
A very warm welcome awaits all golfers in Shropshire. In fact, Shropshire has over 30 golfing venues, and we treat all our golfing pilgrims as honoured guests.
Scotland may have invented the ancient game of golf. But it's in Shropshire, arguably, that the game can be played at its best.
Those well-known wielders of the club, Sandy Lyle and (European Captain for the 2006 Ryder Cup) Ian Woosnam both hail from here and honed their skills on Shropshire's challenging courses. You can also find Hawkstone Park voted as one of the best courses in the world. No mean feat when you see the competition.
Something in the water? More like the rocks! Because it's Shropshire's geology that gives us more than our fair share of diverse courses.
Shropshire has over 30 distinctly different golfing venues including:
Three championship courses
18 hole parkland courses
18 hole hillside courses
9 hole courses
Gold driving ranges
Golfing holidays for beginners, intermediate and club players. The nineteenth hole awaits!
As for those who bleat plaintively about being 'golf widows' (or even widowers) fear not. The equally wide selection of fine shopping, restaurants and other attractions will provide a welcome distraction.
