What the club says: Church Stretton Golf Club is the oldest 18-hole course in Shropshire and one of the highest courses in the United Kingdom. It was designed, in part, by Braid and Vardon, adding to the work done earlier by Jack Morris and James Hepburn. The views from all 18 holes are breathtaking and on a clear day, you can see Cheshire, Staffordshire and Herefordshire.

Great fun

Loved the course! Not a huge fan of uphill par 3s so the first 2 holes are a challenge. One is tough as your first shot and two is a blind par 3. The views are simply stunning, some wonderful green complexes and it was in great condition. You need to be fairly fit as it’s a tough walk but definitely worth the effort. So glad I played it.

An absolute challenge

An absolute challenge of a course with magnificent views to compliment. The difficulty of the various holes and some of the sheer uphill routes was unbelievable. I can't wait to play it again.

warm up net and putting green, course is a real test don't expect pure greens and level lies. bring your straight hitting game or spend a day in the ferns.
loads of blind shots and plenty of drivable par 4s to get back on track. 100% a must play but pray for a nice day on the ridge. pro very friendly and £15 for the pairs open a bargain. enjoyed the day out, walking boots a must for first 3 holes UP UP UP :-)

Great course

Great little course with some challenging holes and amazing views. No two rounds are the same on this course as the weather conditions on the day dictate how each hole plays. Definitely worth a visit

Chris b ash vale.

Agree with the last writer, it is better than dornoch. Severe climbs and breathtaking views. One of the best I've played. Tough opener, where you just want to swing smooth. 3rd is a blind par 3: great hole. The fourth a tough par four, second shot over a valley to a perched green. Tough green to hit on 14, slope running away to the left of the green. What looks like a chance on the 16, 252 yard par 4, miss right and you are dead though. Fun last two holes that play way down the hill.

Stunning! Possibly the best course in England, and I’ve played the big names like St Andrews and Dornoch. Incredible, far reaching views; captivating variety of holes, some with blind shots, some with elevated or lowered pins, some with sunken and tilted greens; a friendly clubhouse; a fair price. It’s challenging and pure and a joy to play.

Lovely little but demanding course

We had a great first visit to the course on a windy and potentially rainy October day which thankfully didnt materialise. As a higher handicap player it was a difficult course but with every hole being different, many where you couldnt see the green it was very enjoyable. Will return in slightly better weather. If you can carry your clubs - taking my trolley was as demanding as the course at times!

Memorable

Played here October , 2020 .

Fantastic course .Interesting , different & unusual .Hilly but very natural with dramatic views (checkout the view from the 8th green ) .Brilliantly designed with the hillside /mountainside terrain & there wasn't one hole i didn't like .Sheep ,wild horses , hidden greens ,marker posts, rocky outcrops & elevation change par 3's .
Short on the card but the quality of design mean approaches on some of the short par 4's have to be struck precisely .
Loads of memorable holes that you are unlikely to find elsewhere & the 1st is a slightly startling opener, a long par 3 with an elevated green above a steep bank & round the corner a bit that required a wood .
I would put this in my top 10 courses played ( out of more than 400 ) .

I love courses like this...

What a course this is...not a single par 5, 6x par 3’s all different and challenges with every shot but at the same time playable for all.
Small greens that ran well if not the quickest but being that high up I understand why they don’t get them faster. Some of the best views anywhere on a course you’re likely to find.
I would recommend a buggy if you’re not the lightest on your feet as there are some proper climbs....
Very friendly welcome from James in the shop all made this a very pleasurable experience.
Definitely one to play with some great deals on offer too.

The most unique, bizarre but equally stunning course I've played. So enjoyable. It's a par 66 but also one of the toughest courses you can play. I highly recommend this course. The staff and members are very friendly and welcoming.

GREAT COURSE - GET A BUGGY!

Great views and a lovely course to play. Has it's challenges with some tight and blind shots but also some to pick up shots. One the highest courses in the UK so views of the Shropshire hills all around but you have to work your way up there on the front 9 so definitely recommend a buggy.
