The Main Course
They say that variety is the spice of life and the Main Course at The Shropshire Golf Centre certainly offers that. This 27-hole golf course has three cleverly designed 9-hole loops of golf, offering 6 combinations for an 18 hole round. This well laid out golf course has an abundance of water hazards and bunkers to trap the wayward ball is an enjoyable challenge for all golfers.
A Championship Combination
The Silver to Gold combination is the most popular choice for golfers at The Shropshire and is the one used for all championship tournaments. The Shropshire has hosted numerous Shropshire and Herefordshire amateur events and Professional PGA, Europro and Jamega Tour events as a result of its challenging golf courses, on site facilities and location, cementing our reputation as one of the finest golf venues in the Midlands.
We politely ask all visitors to the Main Course at The Shropshire Golf Centre to adhere to our Course Care and Etiquette Guidelines
The Blue Course
The Blue Course is perhaps the most challenging of the 9-hole loops at The Shropshire Golf Centre. This par 35 course, measures 3286 from the white markers and requires some strategic play, particularly on the interesting dog-leg par-4 holes. The 4th hole, a tricky par-3 was once described by commentating legend Peter Allis as ‘Shropshire’s answer to Augusta National’s famous par-3 12th hole’.
The Silver Course
This 3303 yard, par-36 course use some good birdie opportunities, but is not without its challenges. The 5th hole is a tough par 3. At 188 yards and usually playing into the wind, a long iron or wood is needed to find small green well protected by bunkers. The 7th hole is the highest point on the golf course and from the tee beautiful views of The Wrekin, Welsh hills and Lilleshall Monument can be seen.
The Gold Course
The Gold Course offers numerous challenges and is the longest of the three 9-hole courses. It also has the most water hazards to catch those wayward shots. The par-4 5th hole is quite possibly the most difficult hole at The Shropshire – a sharp dog leg right with a well-positioned tree which could block out your second shot if your drive goes too far right. The 9th hole leads up to the back of the clubhouse and is reachable in two shots, but beware the water hazard running right across the front of the green.
