Wye Valley Golf Club

Golf Club is one of the most modern high tech golf courses in the Cotswolds and the very first best 18-hole course around.

A beautiful established parkland course set in the wooded hills above the Wye Valley. Since its initial design in the sixties (although club history goes back to the late 1800's), Ross on Wye has delighted golfers with its charm and challenge. The course winds through aged oak trees, natural contours and ponds, putting an emphasis on true shot-making.

Whilst the town of Ross on Wye is actually in Herefordshire, the course, set just off the M50, is actually affiliated to the Gloucestershire Golf Union. Picking the best out of this great layout is tough, as the holes, framed by oak trees really do make this one of the most aesthetic woodland courses you are likely to play. The 5th to the 9th provides a fun run of holes with three par 5's and two par 3's in a row. The course then does not let up. You can be forgiven for thinking that a card of 9 par 4's on the back might get tiresome, but you would be firmly wrong. 16 is a fun drivable par 4 in amongst 14, 17 and 18 which all require two solid shots to get you on the dance floor. 18 sticks in the memory as this final hole can be a card wrecker with out of bounds coming into play on both sides of the fairway!

Ross on Wye makes it to the number one spot on this list for many reasons, but it is also helped by its generous green fee price. You can play the course in peak season for under £60. If you are planning a golf break in Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, or traveling south from the north of the country, you could do a lot worse that to spend a day traversing this woodland golfing delight.
