The Worcestershire Golf Club

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

Est. 1879

The Worcestershire Golf Club, established in 1879, is one of the oldest golf clubs in England. The club is nestled in the picturesque Malvern Hills, which provide a stunning backdrop to the course and the clubhouse.

The layout embraces the combined talents of legendary course architect Dr Alister MacKenzie and the also lauded Fred Hawtree. Both designers input to the layout, although at different times, with the front and back nines each comprising a mix of MacKenzie holes and Hawtree holes. Your all-round game will certainly be tested and challenged on this well-rated and scenic Midlands course.

Did you know?

The Worcestershire Golf Club was formed in 1879 and for several decades played on Poolbrook Common using several different course routings. In the 1920s it was decided to move from the common. Wood Farm, located one mile south of Poolbrook Common, was purchased for the new course.

The Club invited leading golf course architects Harry Colt and Alister MacKenzie to submit designs for the new course. MacKenzie tendered the lower price and was awarded the work.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
