What the club says: Shifnal's course measures 6468 yards with a Standard Scratch Score of 71 and is considered to be among Shropshire's finest. It offers the golfer some really challenging holes, which soon earn the players' respect. The first half of the course has a variety of par 4's, but well placed bunkers at the 1st, 3rd, 4th and 9th make for demanding approaches to the greens. The two par 5's on this half look quite straight forward but require accurate shots to the greens.

The second half becomes more undulating when Decker Hill comes into play. Holes 14 and 16 are both played on uphill slopes that take the player to the highest point on the course, where you are rewarded with fine views over the course and surrounding countryside. Several of the par 4's have dog-leg fairways and a good tee shot is essential for a chance to get par, in particular at 12, 16 and 18.

The final 3 holes are challenging and will test the golfer trying to protect a good score. The final hole has out-of-bounds on the left, but will reward a drive drawn around the corner and back to the 18th green in front of the club house.

Poor greens

Expensive for what it is. Greens just hollow cored in August and we were not told before we got there. Not value for money in my opinion and very little atmosphere in the bar. Average at best

Great course; fantastic condition

A great course especially the greens which were like a snooker table. A very well maintained course in a beautiful setting.

A fair challenge

A fantastic course, rough is punishing, as quite long even just off the fairway. Greens seemed variable speeds making distance control difficult when putting. Nice ambience, helpful staff in the clubhouse and pro shop and good practice facilities. Definitely will play Shifnal again as they were able to cater for a gluten free diet without pre-booking!
