Golf in Shropshire
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-know wielders of the club, Sandy Lyle and (the new 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.
Shropshire has over 30 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!
See our Golf venues below, including Henlle Park near Oswestry, home to one of Shropshire's Premier Parkland Courses. This challenging and undulating course has plenty of character and interesting holes.
As for those who bleat plaintively about being 'golf widows', or indeed 'golf widowers', fear not. The equally wide selection of fine shopping, restaurants and other attractions will provide a welcome distraction.
Please remember, before arriving at the golf club, telephone to confirm that play is available.
