Golfers enjoy a sense of exhilaration even when their game is off in the spectacular surroundings of Herefordshire Golf Club, ‘the Gleneagles of the Midlands’. Fabulous views to the Shropshire Hills, the Brecon Beacons or the Malverns mean players gain a lift of spirits as well as a sporting challenge at every hole.

Established in 1896, Herefordshire Golf Club is the oldest in the county and moved to its present location on Raven’s Causeway in 1932. The spot was chosen by that great artist of golf course design, James Braid, the multi-championship winning Scots professional, one of the greats of the games, who designed the King’s and Queen’s Courses at Gleneagles and remodelled the Open Championship links course at Carnoustie.

Braid designed the entire Herefordshire Golf Club course and made it the immensely pleasurable game test which players of every calibre relish to this day, all the way from the first hole to the last.

Club secretary Trevor Harris says: “It’s an absolute jewel of a course. It’s up in the hills and you can see so far over so many counties that even if you are playing badly it is still a glorious walk.

“A lot of golf courses can be fairly similar. You walk up one side and down the other, whereas all of our holes are entirely different and provide a real test of skill for even the very best players. The course is superb, it’s beautifully maintained and it’s inexpensive compared to many other courses. We would love any societies from the Midlands and beyond to come and try us out. We are very welcoming!”

The 19th hole at Herefordshire Golf Club is open to the public – including non-golfers – and provides legendary Sunday carveries. It is a great venue to hire for private functions.
