The golf complex at Hawkstone Park extends to forty-two holes – featuring the 18-hole Hawkstone and Championship courses and a 6-hole par three layout – and it offers golfers of all abilities the opportunity to test their game in lovely parkland surroundings.

Set within an extensive property that attracts many visitors to the caves, tunnels, trails and towers of its 18th century follies, the Hawkstone course is a James Braid design from the 1920s that was renovated by Welsh golfing legend Brian Huggett when the estate was acquired by the Principal Hayley Group in the 1990s.

Another famous golfing son associated with Hawkstone Park is Sandy Lyle, whose father was for many years the resident professional at the club.

Hawkstone Park Golf Club is a venue that benefits greatly from having two 18-hole parkland golf courses. There is also a six-hole par three academy course on site making this one of the most popular venues in Shropshire. Both of the main courses offer something slightly different.

The older of the two layouts, the 'Hawkstone' is a peaceful, tree-lined course which after an 'up and down' start wanders around the historic Hawkstone Follies. And it is the holes just after the turn that come close to these fascinating cliffs, crags and caves that are also the best on the course.

The front nine will test virtually every part of your game with no easy holes with the seventh being the toughest. There are a few blind drives where placement is required rather than length, this is especially the case the first and eighth where the fairway falls away from you at around the 200-yard mark. The first half of the course closes with its best hole, the impressive downhill par three ninth with a tricky green, bunkers to avoid and out-of-bounds close to the putting surface.

A pretty course - the 10th is most striking with a view of the follies, but in general not that hard in terms of either length or strategy, especially 5, 6 &7 which seemed a bit bland. It's quite reasonable to stay over and play both this and the Championship course over two days, it was very busy on a sunny Friday in June, and given the traffic it sees, it seemed in reasonable condition.

We played the course last year in May, as with many of the hotel courses it could be amazing but isnt that well looked after, probably due to the numbers of golfers and poor greenkeeping/lack of investment. A good layout, with the holes around the follies especially due to the landscape. The visitors tees were in poor condition, the clubhouse was scruffy, and one of the early greens was really suffering. Worth a game on a sunny day, at the right price, if only for the views around the follies.

A really good place to have a late evening fun knock about. I play here roughly 2 or 3 times a year. There is a real mix of different holes where you do have to think. From fairway cross bunkers, to ravines, drivable Par 4's and an island-ish Par 3, there is everything. Plus a large section is played through the beautiful Hawkstone Follies. This is the better of the two courses, and is well worth playing if in the area.
