25 Great Value English Golf Courses to Play in 2021

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 31 Mar 2021 | Comments

Golfers throughout England are set to make 2021 a season to remember, with many looking to spread their wings and experience new courses for the first time. There is much to be said for visiting a genuine bucket list venue - that is always a treat - but it's typically an expensive one, so it makes sense to offer some more affordable alternatives for your consideration.

However, we're not recommending them, the Golfshake Community are, courtesy of their reviews submitted on the website, rating destinations across a range of criteria, including Value For Money.

We have studied reviews submitted since the glorious summer of 2018, bringing together 25 venues that can boast extremely high ratings for their value.

There's a variety of prices included, but generally speaking, if you play one of these this year, you'll walk away feeling like it was money well spent.

So, what are you waiting for!
