What the club says: Stinchcombe Hill is a challenging golf course set on the southern edge of the Cotswold Escarpment above the Severn Valley. The late Henry Longhurst rated Stinchcombe Hill Golf Club among the top most scenic courses in Europe. The course was formed in 1889 but re-designed by Fred Hawtree and later by James Braid. An excellent test for both low and high handicap golfers but regardless of how well you play, you will enjoy the views.

Hill top course is challenging in the windI love this course.
You play on top of a hill at the very edge of the Cotswolds, the surrounding views of Bristol, Gloucestershire and Wales are stunning.
It also makes for a challenging round when its windy, which it was for us on Sunday.
The course has been well kept over the lockdown
Stinchcombe 12-1-19Probably my 6th visit in last 3 years which says something as only play a dozen times a year and 45 minute drive to get here.
Upon arrival were told all Temporary greens which was a shame but understandable and we were only charged half price.
Course was in good nick as usual ,with the temp greens signposting would have been tricky for players new to the course.
Staff excellent as always and views are worth the Green fee alone,thoroughly recommend it and cant wait to get back when the course is fully operationial.
Challenging on a Windy Day

ExcellentCourse was in fantastic condition, fairways had been scarified but we're very good, greens were fabulous. We played in the Seniors Pairs Open which was well run and excellent value for money.
Nice viewLovely course. I last reviewed this course on the 22nd of May 2016 and to be honest little has changed.
When playing this course today, the fairways were undergoing maintenance but normally the fairways excellent. The greens are often slightly elevated which makes for interesting chip shots and bunkers were top quality as they normally are, the tees were pushed forward which shorted this long course a little.
The course could do with more ball cleaners at tees and some rubbish bins more frequently. If i was to have a little issue with the course, is that some of the holes feel a little samey, long par 4, smash driver for the tee shot.... Only in the summer when the rough is lethal would one start consider playing safe with a long iron from the tee. Where as courses nearby with tight fairways with little escape force you to play safe. There is no practice green (which they could do with) or driving range at this club but they do have nets to warm up in and an area for chipping.
The views at the course are my favourite in the golfing area because you can observe the Severn valley from the course which is on the Cotwoldsway. You can see down as far as the Severn bridge and observe the shadows of the Malvern hills in Herefordshire. The view is stunning. When this course is full priced I personally think there is better evening rates, during the summer months, however the £20 winter rate (£15 due to fairway maintenance) is fair.

Certainly worth a visit

An o.k. CoursePlayed today, April 22nd with my wife. The course has a number of bland holes and some more interesting ones, particularly holes 5 & 6. The greens were in great condition, the fairways o.k. and a lot of the rough is like a farmers field. The whole course is played on a plateau on the top of a hill so is either windy or very windy. We played Cirencester the previous day which was much more interesting. Would we include Stinchcombe on a return trip to the area - probably not.
Shots from fairways generally poor and didn't sink a putt all day.
Was windy and course soft so no roll and greens were poor and could not be trusted.

Great views and fast roundDespite being very windy the course was still a pleasure to play. Fairways were dry, greens as quick as they could be without the wind blowing the ball and took a full shot. Friendly staff and great value for money in the clubhouse.

Picturesque coursevery picturesque course with great views of the surrounding area in the Cotswolds to the Bristol estuary. Facilities were good, friendly and welcoming. Course itself of good standard, with elements providing a particular challenge as the course is on top of a tor.
