The Astbury Golf Course


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   The Astbury Golf Course Est. 2010

Where2Golf says: 

The Astbury golf course is located in the grounds of stately Astbury Hall, now owned by former Judas Priest rock guitarist K.K. Downing. Within the estate's 300 acres of rolling hills, Downing set about crafting his first golf course design, which continues to gather many admirers. Among them is Open Champion and Ryder Cup legend Darren Clarke, now the club's touring professional.

Tucked away in the heart of the Shropshire countryside, The Astbury presents a tactical mix of strategically placed bunkering and manicured playing surfaces. The layout offers excellent challenges to golfers of all skill levels, including greens built to USGA specifications, subtly contoured to provide top-quality putting surfaces. Throughout you will be faced with many challenging shots; none more so than the 18th hole, a testing par-3 stretching 200 yards from the back tees.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene.
