Ross-on-Wye Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1962

Ross-on-Wye Golf Club is home to a generally well-regarded golf course, which includes several attractive holes and features. This gently undulating tree-lined parkland course was laid out in the early 1960s by Ken Cotton. The club is now advised by Donald Steel, another member of the former firm of Cotton, Pennink, Lawrie, Steel & Partners.

Ross-on-Wye Golf Club is a haven for wildlife. Daffodils and bluebells carpet the woods in springtime and the autumn leaves are worth the walk on their own. You can expect the company of numerous squirrels, while buzzards regularly circle overhead. Occasionally Muntjac deer may also put in an appearance.
