Needs maintenance

Spectacular views and a few quirky holes , but overall this course was very disappointing and not enjoyable . The course layout is confusing , the walking tracks between many holes are in poor condition, especially on the 8 th hole . Sheep dominate several fairways .

If you play this course , do not use a manual trolley particularly on a windy day . My rented trolley toppled over dozens of times .
This course is better suited to low handicap golfers who will be more capable of managing such a challenging course

Certainly unique!

Booked online and rang contact number to book a cart/buggy due to hilly terrain. However, turned up to find pro shop closed and no sign of buggy. Fortunately had our own pull trolleys so could actually play! Also no cards available which would have helped. Not the best of starts. Found the course far too difficult in terms of access and general enjoyment. Views excellent and greens good. However, fairways are tight and any wayward balls are moreorless gone with the fairies!. Must be a nightmare in winter conditions and quite dangerous with steep slopes to negotiate. We are seniors and could only manage 12 holes before deciding to give it a miss. Sorry members for a negative review but wish your club well.

Stunning round

If you haven’t played at Church Stretton, book a round now. Probably the most characterful course in England.

Corse condition was as good as I’ve seen and the welcome in the pro shop is always warm.

Can’t wait to get back up and take in the views.

Quirky, Unique and Fun

Picked as a quick round before heading back to Scotland on the May Bank Holiday and completely underestimated the climb. Roughly equivalent to going a hill walk with my golf bag; I highly recommend anyone to take a trolley as a minimum!
Rewarded with excellent weather and with the course to myself this was treat. I imagine it is much more difficult with the ferns and rough longer than when I played, and a blustery wind would be tough too. Not a long course by any means, I was happy with the challenge provided by blind approaches and undulating fairways.
Reminded me a lot of Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire and Whiting Bay on Arran, although the views are much more spectacular. Course was immaculate for heathland, greens were brick hard too.
Quirky, unique and good fun - a must play for anybody allowed to take their clubs on a family holiday.

Spectacular as usual

I love Church Stretton golf course. It's completely unique and a real test of your golfing brain. The views are amazing and the course condition was superb - greens are unreal at the moment. Definitely worth a visit.

Church Stretton

I originally booked this round for 30th July but when electrical storms were forecast I called the Pro who was extremely helpful and agreed we could move the game a couple of weeks as I was about to go away on holiday.
We arrived to a warm welcome from both the Pro and members and teed off in the sunshine with light winds. I have played here in bad weather and have to say it's not much fun but on a good day there's nowhere better. The views are stunning and the layout is imaginative.
Be prepared to gain some serious altitude over the first 4 holes!
The course is mostly rented from the National Trust so you can expect to see a lot of sheep and ponies but this only adds to the experience.
A short course but it doesn't feel like it and if you're walking you will definitely sleep well after.
We finished off with a drink sitting outside the clubhouse looking out over the valley and the town...it really is a cracking spot.

One of England's little gems'.

Great day out on a wonderful challenging course. Best views on a course I have ever played, could see for miles on this clear day. Great height attained from Hole 1 to Hole 10, making for some great downhill shots on Back 9. Greens in tip top condition, masses of wildlife around the course and on it (lambs !). Staff very friendly, no snootiness here. Top club, wish I lived closer to play regularly, but will be back soon.

Evening Golf

Played church stretton last night after work - found the greens in fantastic condition, one of the most interesting layouts I've played, a real challenge and an experience - don't be fooled by the short yardage on the score card! Finished the round and was suprised to find still serving food which was great. Everyone very friendly and helpful! Pack a jumper even on a sunny day it gets breezy on the hills! Thanks again.

Superb!

A wonderful course set right on top of the Shropshire hills. Breathtaking views the whole way round, with challenging and interesting holes. The pro, James, is really friendly and the course was quiet so there wasn't much pressure on us. If you're looking for a round in Shropshire, this is without doubt one of the most unique courses in England.

played 6-7 times over 7 years

I haven't played it since joining tee off times , but many times in the past. It is superb and a real challenge but also fair. I often break 90 elsewhere and can go to 80/81 on a good day , and playing well here I'd be looking at 82/3 but it can also swallow you up if you hit the ferns. Very challenging in wind. Best views on any course I've ever played. Greens are always dry due to being on a hill. You can use a trolley but it is an "interesting" experience with one. Starts off with what feel like 3 par 3's but they don't play like it! I love the 18th - feels like the green is 200 foot below , hit a good 7/8 and the ball falls vertically on to the green. Friendly place as well , proper golfers golf course rather than a place to make business deals.
