Golf in Shropshire

4th November 2013 Print

If you’re looking for the perfect golfing holiday in the UK, you should look no further than Shropshire. This tranquil county boasts the perfect landscape for golf, with gently rolling hills and plenty of greenery. Here are some of the best courses Shropshire has to offer:


Llanymynech golf club is one of the most individual and appealing courses in the world. It is situated across two countries; there are fifteen holes in Wales and three in England. On the fourth hole you drive in England and putt in Wales! Situated on top of a quarry and surrounded by sheer cliffs this challenging course has idyllic views over the Shropshire plains. US Masters winner Ian Woosnam learned how to play golf on this course and might just be seen honing his skills ahead of next year’s Masters, for which he is priced at 1000/1 in the Paddy Power golf odds to win. The clubhouse has a nice relaxing atmosphere and serves food seven days a week, which is perfect for unwinding after a gruelling 18 holes. Green fees at the club are £20 in the week and £25 at the weekend.

Hawkstone Park

Hawkstone Park actually has two golf courses: the Hawkstone course and the Championship course. As any serious golf betting fan will know, this fantastic golf course was where a young Sandy Lyle honed his skills. With splendid views of historic follies and rolling greenery, Hawkstone Park is a place of beauty. The course has a fantastic clubhouse that serves local produce as well as a 66 bedroom hotel.  A round on the Hawkstone course costs £25 while the Championship course will set you back £20.

Oswestry Golf Course

One of the shorter 18-hole courses in the county but just as challenging, with most of the fairways surrounded by trees, straight driving is key here. The terrain is easy walking and free draining, ensuring quality golf throughout the year. A round of golf here will cost you £40 but this stunning course is well worth the price.
