The Golf Courses You Must Play in England This Autumn

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 14 Sep 2022 | Comments


Hot and dry conditions were a near-constant presence throughout summer in much of England, which was great for golfers but challenging for greenkeepers. 

But as we move into autumn, more temperate weather has resumed, ensuring that our courses will look fabulous as the main season draws to a close. 

Where should be on your list to play during the coming weeks? Well, we defer now to the Golfshake Community, who continue to review venues in their thousands each year. 

Isolating those ratings that were submitted into the Golfshake Course Section during the months of September, October and November (since 2018), we have picked out a range of the most positively reviewed places during autumn, in this instance excluding the priciest courses to offer accessible options to all golfers.

So, while the days are getting shorter and it's becoming a little cooler, that shouldn't stop you from experiencing these 35 Golf Courses You Must Play in England This Autumn!
