Herefordshire is half the size of its partner county Shropshire when it comes to the number of golf clubs affiliated to the Shropshire and Herefordshire Union of Golf Clubs. The SHUGC administer golf for 36 clubs, one third of which are in Herefordshire.
Herefordshire is one of England’s most rural and sparsely populated counties but it’s a tourism hotspot with numerous castles and floriferous gardens. Some follow the Herefordshire Cider Route where you can sample the delights of the county’s cider-making, which goes back some 350 years.
Alternatively you could seek out a few of England’s unsung golf courses, headed by Kington, which is not only England’s highest 18-hole golf course, but also one of the country's true hidden gems, described eruditely by one of our regular contributors as an inland-super-mare.
