Stafford Castle. The Gem in a Town

This 9 hole course (to be played twice from different Tees for 18 holes) is a gem in the centre of Stafford. The course is very well laid out and despite some reservations regarding playing 9 twice regarding queuing on tees, we played the course without any hold ups. The course is kept to a very good standard and we were helped by some friendly staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our eighteen holes and would recommend to others to try it out. Good service and nice menu in the club afterwards.

Nice Course, but Hard to Navigate

Course was really nice, but hard to navigate. As our first time visit, it would have been nice to have a map of the course and where the next hole was. Spent far too much time trying to find where to go, and on one of the holes we couldn't find the blue tee which we were playing off.
A few signs directing you to where the next hole is, wouldn't be hard to add and make the experience almost perfect.
Other than that, the course is in great condition, with semi challenging holes. Fairways need to be found in order to score well at this course.

Good course to open your shoulders

Third time playing this course. Not dissimilar to Stone as a 9 holer with different tee off for the back 9 and just over 6000 yards. Fairways are wide so you can enjoy a good bash off the tee and fairway. Greens were quite quick and all in all its a decent course although not too many hazards if you like that sort of thing.

Great to be back

First game back after Lockdown, thoroughly enjoyable 4 ball. Second time playing here, some minor changes with the trees all cut back on the 18th but this is a really good course with some open fairways for those who like to hit a long drive. Some tricky greens with challenging flag positions, greens in good shape. I played poorly but who cares!

Only 9 holes

Don't be deceived it's only 9 holes played twice from two different tee positions so the card makes it appear your playing 18 different holes but that's not the case

Great hospitality , the course was excellent on a very hot day the greens I hit which wasn’t many held lovely. The fairways had a true bounce and both myself and my son played under our handicap.Hopitality in the bar and restaurant was second to none. Thanks all looking forward to playing again.

Great little 9 hole

This is a great little course. It’s worth noting this isn’t a typical golf ‘CLUB’. There is no pro shop or reception per se etc however there is a bar and you can have a drink Beforehand.

I think £10 for 9 holes is absolutely perfect for a mid week ‘knock’.

The holes themselves are great and there’re a couple of longer holes which offer more of a challenge.

It’s not the easiest to navigate at first, there are several tee off locations are part of the quirky ‘18 hole’ offering, in reality they don’t offer much difference, it’s more or less playing the same hole twice.

I’d highly recommend, if you understand and take it for what it is.

Stafford Castle Golf Club (9 holes 18 tees)

Prior to booking there was no clear information made available about the fact this is a 9 hole golf course with 18 tee locations. On arrival there is no pro shop or indication of where booked in players can acquire a score card, nor how the playing system works, it was only down to another player explaining this to us so thank you to them.

When out on the course however it is in great condition with great variance of hole difficulty and was a joy to play. Would recommend to others for a nice relaxing round of golf for sure. Will play again.

Excellent Value for Money

Played this course a few times and believe it is excellent value for money especially the twilight rates.

Challenging parkland course that has well maintained fairways but beware of the difficult to read and fast greens.

I hope to return soon.
