Founded in 1889, Ludlow is the oldest club affiliated to the Shropshire & Herefordshire Union of Golf Clubs. The course in play today is a 1927 James Braid redesign that is sand and gravel based which usually provides fast and firm conditions.
Ludlow golf course is set within the racecourse and therefore fairly flat but that should not detract from it being a pretty good golf course. I have played Ludlow a few times (admittedly not for a few years) and the one thing I do remember that is the greens were always of good quality and pace. The first six holes go around the outside of the course anticlockwise following the racetrack with the racetrack generally down the right of holes but sometimes crossing over the fairway. After that the course basically sits in the middle of holes 1-6. Another feature is there is quite a lot of gorse/broom which defines some of the holes and in particular tests your driving accuracy. My favourite hole would be the 15th (a dog-leg par 4 of 387 yards) which follows back to back par 3's including an old quarry to be cleared on 14. Quite a few interesting holes which combined with good greens makes it worth a visit if in the area.
