The 2 golf courses at Hawkstone Park were, as you can imagine, under the influence of the weather conditions that we have been experiencing of late. On the first day we played the Hawkstone Course which, although temporary tees were in place, the fairways were generally in good condition and the greens were superb; albeit tricky at times which added to the enjoyment. The course was well laid out with a variety of interesting challenges and the bonus was that I won our match having been 3 down in first nine holes!
We played the Championship Course on the second day and sadly the fairways were really suffering, but the permanent tees were in use and the greens again were in tip top condition for this time of the year. The course was a real challenge with the water features fully utilised plus some superb settings and challenging shots and we are adding this venue to our list to visit next year in the summer when the course will be at its best
The club house was unfortunately closed at this time of the year, but we had a quick look around the facilities and they were first class.
The hotel was really good too and the staff members were friendly and helpful. The food and service could not be faulted also.
The location was easy to find and the views breathtaking as its very close to Welsh borders and certainly worth a visit if only for the scenery
Your Golf Travel’s help throughout the booking process was first class and we were impressed with the texts we got on the first and last day of the trip which added a real touch of customer care which is so vital these days.
All in all fantastic value for money and very professionally
