The par-71, 6,500 yard layout was designed by Downing himself and has been created to utilise the stunning Shropshire countryside to give golfers of all abilities a memorable golfing experience. With the course built to USGA standards, play is enjoyed year round at The Astbury. The slick playing surfaces are courtesy of their utilisation of creeping bent grass greens, something rarely seen in the UK. The Astbury, or Astbury Hall as it was known previously, has also hosted some of the shining lights of the professional circuit in 2013 with the Astbury Hall Classic on the Europro Tour which was won by James Hepworth with a -6 total in the 54 hole tournament.

Darren Clarke believes it to “have a massive amount of potential...it is a wonderful venue”.
