What the club says: Church Stretton Golf Club is the oldest 18-hole course in Shropshire and one of the highest courses in the United Kingdom. It was designed, in part, by Braid and Vardon, adding to the work done earlier by Jack Morris and James Hepburn. The views from all 18 holes are breathtaking and on a clear day, you can see Cheshire, Staffordshire and Herefordshire.

Played with my Hickory golf clubs - following in the footsteps of some of the Greats. Stunning views and one of the most interesting courses i've played. Short but with plenty of blind shots, run off areas and some slippery greens. Got to give you the best views of any course in the country. Make it part of your wish list. Played 20.9.16.

course in mint condition. A real test of stamina and course management. six par threes may suggest an easy course but small margins for errors.

Read some reviews of this course and I agree, this is a beautiful course. Similar to some remote Scottish courses I've played. Not a long course but it is tricky and great for your health, it's like playing golf on the side of a mountain. Great value for money, had the course to myself except for the sheep grazing on the fairways and greens. If you haven't played this course, you definitely should. I great alternative to flat parkland courses.

Jon rated 5 out of 5 - Sep 1 2015

Fantastic course, not too long but it's challenging with small greens and some narrow fairways.
The course is totally unique and the views are spectacular, I would definitely recommend playing this golf course.

Very interesting course, with spectacular views. This course is not for the faint hearted. If you like hiking then you'll also love this course, if you don't then get a buggy Playing a round at Church Stretton requires good course management. Its not the type of course you can just bash your way around with a long drive, you have to manage your game really well to cope with the terrain. Terrific fun

Chris rated 5 out of 5 - Apr 21 2015

We picked the nicest day to play. No wind and judging by the bent trees this course must get pretty wild. The views are second to none, you should bring a camera, sheep on the fairways and each hole a completely new experience. Friendly members who welcomed us with open arms. I would definitely return.

Play this course! Don't judge it by the scorecard, find a clear day in any season and you will never enjoy golf in the same way again. Extremely challenging, but fair and rewarding.

Can't stress how much I enjoyed this course. It's like no other I've ever played, feels like a links course laid out over a mountain ! Part golf part hill walk. Fairways are kept short by the sheep, greens are great and the views stunning. Don't be fooled by the distances and scorecard, this is no pitch and putt, a real test of golfing ability. Very warm welcome at the clubhouse and great breakfast. Can't wait to come back.

Simon lamb burton on Trent rated 4 out of 5 - Feb 15 2014

Interesting course views spectacular, don't let the shortness of the course fool you it protects itself well with quick greens and prevailing winds. A very fair test of golf and if you course is closed, flooded make your way here. Great value welcoming staff and members delighted you have visited. Small quaint a little quirky but great fun. Open three holes are par threes so you have to be on your game. Good condition when we played everywhere was drowned. A great day out we will return. Thanks from the branston 777's.

Played the course today with two mates, having not played here for sometime. The course is in fantastic condition and whilst physically demanding is well worth the effort. The views are spectacular and at £10 a round it is excellent value for money.

Played this while in Shropshire on a family holiday at October half term. Fantastic course (you need to be fit!) but absolutely stunning views over the Long Mynd and surrounding countryside. Course and greens in good condition and the pro was very friendly and helpful.

Great fun and great value for money. I'll be back
