Where2Golf says: 

Hawkstone Park Hotel & Golf (Hawkstone Course): Of the two courses here at Hawkstone Park, the Hawkstone course is the older and arguably the more scenic layout. Benefitting from some deft alterations which James Braid made to the original Albert Shepherd layout, the course is both captivating and at times potentially a bit frustrating, especially with several blind drives to make on the back-nine. The main interest on the lightly wooded and fairly compact front-nine is the par-4 5th, a testing golf hole and, rather unusually, the site of a Second World War prisoner of war camp. The front-nine is somewhat overshadowed by the back-nine, which is picturesquely woven between some large rocky outcrops and sandstone cliffs that are home to several follies. Five blind drives are required on the back-nine, which will constantly challenge you with some intriguing created golf holes. Signature holes are the 10th and 12th. The 518-yard 10th (Road Hole), is a par-5 which runs alongside the cliffs; the 12th has an elevated tee onto a small green and is named The Moat after its use of an original feature of the ruined castle around which the course is designed. One or two touches of design eccentricity call for accurate shot-making and good course management. Hawkstone Park offers two enjoyable and excellent value golf courses, although this can also translate into busy weekends and inevitably slow rounds.

Did you know?

Hawkstone Park, the setting for the two championship golf courses, is a well-known historical park with hidden pathways, concealed grottos, secret tunnels and a remarkable collection of follies. The golf club here has strong associations with one of Scotland's greatest golfers, Sandy Lyle. This is where he spent his formative golfing years, with his father Alex, the club professional. Hawkstone's purpose built Golf Centre is housed in an impressive new clubhouse, while 66-rooms of on-site accommodation are available in the Hawkstone Park Hotel, which was expanded from a travellers' inn that dates back to 1790.
