The Golf Courses You Should Play in The Midlands

By: Golfshake Editor | Mon 15 Aug 2022 | Comments

The Heart of England, The Midlands covers the central portion of the nation and is home to a rich variety of acclaimed golf courses, including several of the finest resort venues in the entire United Kingdom.

Ryder Cups and many European Tour events have regularly been a feature in this part of the world, but we wanted to bring you a diverse collection of destinations that represent the depth you will find in this region. 

Studying the Golfshake Course Section, each of the following places can boast a minimum of six positive reviews that have been submitted since 2019 during the months of June, July and August.

Consequently, some brilliant spots have missed out, such as Notts (Hollinwell) Golf Club, but golfers in The Midlands and beyond should discover plenty to enjoy here!
