Shropshire is the perfect location for a round of golf, with its beautiful surroundings and landscape. It is one of those sports that is not only challenging to play, has great camaraderie with team mates, but also has an air of relaxation.

Playing a round of golf is also a great way to get some fresh air and exercise as you take a leisurely stroll around the course. Not only are there the physical benefits, there is also the mental challenge of getting to the hole with the least amount of shots, or for most amateurs, trying to find where the darn golf ball settled up!

For those who plan to try a year of golf then joining a golf club will save money and bring a host of benefits with it too!

Oswestry Golf Club, is a private members club run not for profit, but for the benefit of the members, it is situated off the main A5 into Oswestry making it the ideal golfing location. The 18 hole golf course is a magnificent mature James Braid designed parkland course with free draining sandy soils for all year round play. It has also introduced a practice ground for a short game and has won many awards making it one of the premier club and courses in North Shropshire and the Welsh Borders.
