Golf Course Review

Church Stretton Golf Club is cut from the same cloth as another nearby course in Kington. The course was recently awarded a spot in the world top 25 courses under 6,000 yards. It certainly qualifies as it barely makes 5,000 yards! Sat in the Shropshire hills, it is the definition of a hidden gem that has gained cult-like status.

The theme of the course is uphill, downhill and sideways. The course is routed to be walkable but there is still climbing to be done. No one would ever say it is great golf but with Victorian remnants and boisterous slopes, it certainly is fun.

It is also a rule breaker. Some recommend not beginning with a one-shot hole... how about opening with 3!? In fact, 4 of the first 5 holes are par 3's at Church Stretton Golf Club! Perhaps another rule is broken when it all ends with another one-shot hole.
