What the club says: Atherstone Golf Club is a 6012 yards course, which is not long, but with several blind shots to the 18 holes which are all completely different to one another, the par of 72 and standard scratch of 70 makes for a very interesting round of golf. The original course was laid out in 1894 on what was described as some of the best natural golfing land in the region.

Great course

Whilst not the longest course Atherstone is very challenging. Lots of blind approaches and narrow target areas mean you have to really think your way round.
Course was in lovely condition and is highly recommended.

A tough but excellent test

A great old golf course, full of unusual holes. Rewards good play, kills bad play! Just going brown, and almost linksy when we played, but the greens were bright green and very slick. 4 Ryder Cup players have come from this course, which says it all. Today, the course won comfortably!

First 3 holes are mickey mouse, then you enter the old course which are very pleasant. You then move to 10 - 13 very bland and boring ! 14 is a fill in card wrecker !! And then you move to 15-17,18 again old course lovely fairways and layout. Greens good condition but far too slow even in the summer.

Lovely club and very friendly its just really outdated with no services ! But cheap

Played on a Monday; only £12 per person! Very nice, 'links' type course. Accuracy will reward you far more than distance. Lots of blind shots, creativity sometimes required.

Very hilly though; you'd better be fit!

1st time of playing the course and 1st year of really starting to play golf. This one of the nearest courses to me and I loved it. Will be playing Atherstone regularly from now on. A very testing course with so many blind shots. But loved it.

This is a great course but not one for the faint hearted. Probably the most testing course I've played outside Scotland. Only 5810 yards but feels like double that with all the hills. There is almost no part of this course that isn't on a slope. Difficult for the first time visitor to score well here as there are lots of blind shots. You can only see 5 pins from standing on tees and one par 5 you first see it at 40 yards from the green. There is almost no margin for error. Miss a fairway or green by 8 yards and you'll end up out of bounds, down a huge hill or off in a ditch, you need to be straight. If you do hit straight you still have the howling wind to deal with. There is one temporary green in place on the 90 degree dog leg 7th but the actual green has had turf relaid so that's understandable. Course in good condition and friendly members make this a must visit course. It will open your eyes to how different golf on a hillside can be to a normal flat parkland track.
