Where2Golf says: 

Stratford-on-Avon Golf Club: whether you'd call you golf game a "Comedy of Errors", "Much Ado About Nothing" or "As You Like It", it will probably be a case of "All's Well That Ends Well", if you tee it up at the delightful Stratford-on-Avon Golf Club.

Spaciously laid out on flat terrain a mile or so outside William Shakespeare's home town, this pleasantly tree-lined course offers a relatively easy-going and enjoyable round. The view across the course from the par-4 4th green, gives you a good impression of the general flatness of the course, although it's a layout with plenty to keep golfers of all abilities fully absorbed.

Square-cut tee boxes align you to the good-width fairways, which are usually flanked by neatly trimmed trees, both large and small. Water makes two very brief appearances, alongside the greens at the par-4 5th and par-5 12th. As you stand on the tee, it is small "frog-eye" bunkers that stare back at you from the fairways ... especially on the closing four-hole stretch, which includes three par-5s and three sets of cross-bunkers.

The excellent quality greens are a joy to putt on ... subtly sloping, rather than roller-coaster, with some two-tier greens in the mix. There's not too much to look onto beyond the course ... a pleasant mix of woodland and open countryside, and a few stretches with good-size unobtrusive homes.
