What the club says: You don’t have to be a member to enjoy our superb facilities, so why not spend a day experiencing one of the Midlands finest golfing destinations. The Par 71 6500 yard course is a fantastic challenge for golfers of all ages and abilities and our immaculate putting surfaces with subtle undulations will test the skills of even the very best putter.
Our famed signature hole, the 18th is a challenging par 3 over water set in front of the stunning clubhouse meaning that once navigated your post round drink on our stunning patio will taste all the more refreshing.

Great now, and will be stunning.

Great course, not too long and has some challenging holes.

Greens run true and fairways really well kept.

Loads of work going on on the facilities which I?ll look forward to seeing on my next visit.

As Good As Ever?.Well Better Actually

Having not played here for a few years (since before it temporarily closed) I was really looking forward to returning. I wasn?t disappointed?..
Course was as good as I remember it and the greens were Fantastic. Trees have matured well and the rough even though not overly long is punishing.
Great challenge for all levels of golfer but also playable no matter what level you are at. Nice added additions in practice nets by first tee and the halfway hut (potting shed) where I sampled a lovely coffee and a very tasty bacon roll.
Course held up so well too given the weather we?d had the day before and also at the time i played. Really cannot wait to return. Staff were all very friendly and hospitable .

Absolute gem of a course

Fantastic course, beautifully laid out & challenging without being difficult. Fairways & greens were immaculate with the greens being very consistent throughout the 18 holes. Also very quiet when we played (2:20pm tee off on a Sunday) so didn't need to wait at all

Average

I don’t understand what everyone is raving about. Course is very average and amateur ish. Like it’s has 16 holes and they forgot two so put some really short par 3’s together. Wouldn’t return

BGA Tour

Having never played here before and reading mixed reviews, i have to say Astbury Hall is a brilliant golf course, very maintained and extremely picturesque. the fairways were in great condition and the greens were excellent, played on a wednesday for 25quid, you wont get a better course for that money anywhere, anyone that gives this course a bad review has obviously had a bad round and is a huge pile of stinking cow dung. Will definitely be returning to mub it again soon.

Love the BGA

Middle of the Road

In the Middle of Nowhere but I’d heard a fair bit about it, course played really short, I know it’s running miles but even so it’s a short track, couple of nice holes but most very average, flew round hardly a golfer to be seen, not sure how it’s the top of the Midlands

Exceptional

In a wilderness on brown burnt off courses Astbury is like an oasis, I couldn’t believe the course conditions, it’s amazing. This has to be the finest course for its money within 50 miles
To the previous reviewer, if you have never liked it why play again? Sounds like you have an axe to grind
