Highly Recommended 2020

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.

Peter

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.

Unique

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.

You might fall in love

I have such a soft spot for this course. Uniqueness is the key: inland links; wayyyy up high (with those awesome views; the wind can be 20mph higher than down below; wildlife everywhere; holes playing 100yds shorter or longer than they are.

A bit disappointing that the staff were gone when I finished, still within the advertised opening times. Understandable in a little country town, however.

Most tellingly, you will come away from your first round remembering every single hole from tee to green - something even most other Braid courses do not offer.

So, yeah... at £14, the value for money is just unbeatable. Go there, battle the wind, the fairway climbs, the blind fairways and the sheep, and remember that each golf course is supposed to be interesting. Every in-and-out parkland you play in future will bore the pants off you!

Played with my Hickory golf clubs - following in the footsteps of some of the Greats. Stunning views and one of the most interesting courses i've played. Short but with plenty of blind shots, run off areas and some slippery greens. Got to give you the best views of any course in the country. Make it part of your wish list. Played 20.9.16.

Read some reviews of this course and I agree, this is a beautiful course. Similar to some remote Scottish courses I've played. Not a long course but it is tricky and great for your health, it's like playing golf on the side of a mountain. Great value for money, had the course to myself except for the sheep grazing on the fairways and greens. If you haven't played this course, you definitely should. I great alternative to flat parkland courses.
