20 Golf Courses You Have to Play This Autumn

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 21 Oct 2022

Following a warm summer, the sudden arrival of the autumn season can be a bit of a shock to the system, with cooler temperatures and shortening days making it less inspiring to make the effort to play golf. But there are ways to ignite that fire to get out there and have a go before winter hits.

If you have been following the Golfshake Course Section, you will be aware that we have been highlighting some of the very best venues to experience at this time of year.  And before autumn turns to winter, we have one more feature article for you! 

We are excited to share 20 Golf Courses You Have to Play This Autumn, none of which were included in previous lists; The Top Rated Golf Courses to Play This AutumnThe Best Scottish Golf Courses to Play in Autumn and The Golf Courses You Must Play in England This Autumn.

Yes, it can be harder to find the motivation in October, but we reckon that these places will give you the required spark!

Review Comment: "First time visit to Fulwell and it was a treat. Course conditioning was very good, especially the greens which were immaculate, so true and firm. The layout is generally OK rather than anything inspiring but there are some well positioned bunkers and brilliantly contoured green complexes. It's really all about short game here. Warm welcome, good practice facilities, lovely looking clubhouse and good pace of play. We're keen to return."
