Map of Worcestershire

The rural county of Worcestershire is located in the West Midlands of England with a population of just over half a million people. Many’s the Welsh rarebit, Caesar salad or Bloody Mary cocktail that’s been flavoured by a few drops from a Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce bottle – and the condiment has been made in Worcester since 1837.

The Worcestershire Union of Golf Clubs was founded in 1905 – two years after the ladies had formed their own county association – to look after the interests of male golfers. Nine clubs attended the inaugural meeting of the County Union and today there are 34 affiliated clubs.

Worcestershire & Herefordshire Ladies’ County Golf Association continues to promote the game to female golfers in the region, regardless of their age or ability, and events that the association organise are intended to bring lady golfers together in a social environment, with competitions conducted in the best spirit of the game.

Worcestershire is one of ten Unions in membership of the Midland Golf Union and its representative team has an indifferent record in Midland Qualifying for the EGU County Championships, winning only 6 of the 60 events contested since 1955.

2nd Worcestershire - Best in Area

The rolling fairways at Moseley Golf Club were remodelled by Harry Colt in 1918 and the course is configured with a couple of par threes and a closing par five on both the outward and inward half.

Worcester Golf & Country Club

3rd Worcestershire - Best in Area

Worcester Golf & Country Club was founded in 1898, but the course in play today at Boughton Park is an Alister MacKenzie design from 1927 and much of the Dr’s original layout is evident.

The Worcestershire

4th Worcestershire - Best in Area

The Worcestershire Golf Club – established in 1879 – is the oldest in the county, but nine holes of its elegant 1920s Alister MacKenzie-designed 18-hole parkland course at Wood Farm were requisitioned during WWII, so F.W. Hawtree reinstated nine new holes in the early 1960s.

Fulford Heath

5th Worcestershire - Best in Area

Fulford Heath Golf Club is a delightful James Braid-designed parkland course. The River Cole, three lakes and plenty of mature trees present their own challenges.

6th Worcestershire - Best in Area

Redditch Golf Club relocated to its present Callow Hill site in 1972 when architect Frank Pennink routed the 18 holes around a property that’s part parkland and part woodland in character.


7th Worcestershire - Best in Area

The tree-lined fairways at Kidderminster Golf Club have been in play ever since the 1920s, a decade after the club was founded.

Kings Norton (Weatheroak)

8th Worcestershire - Best in Area

Kings Norton Golf Club members have the option of playing on three different 9-hole loops, which are each colour-coded – Blue, Red & Yellow. The three loops confusingly pair up to create the Weatheroak, Brockhill and Wythall courses, each of which ends with a par five.


9th Worcestershire - Best in Area

Stourbridge Golf Club was formed in 1892 and a course was laid out on the former Stourbridge racecourse. Today’s layout stretches to 6,231 yards and the 203-yard 10th is a cracking one-shotter.

The Vale (International)

10th Worcestershire - Best in Area

The International course at The Vale Golf & Country Club is a 1991 Bob Sandow creation that is mature beyond its years. The par 74 layout measures an eye-watering 7,555 yards from the tips and it’s even a testy 6,648 yards from the yellow tees.
