Bordered by the Malvern Hills and Cotswold countryside, with the Rivers Avon and Severn running throughout, this region has an abundance of beautiful countryside making for great golfing landscapes. Many of the courses are rural providing the perfect getaway whilst you play!
Worcestershire sits between the section of M5 connecting Bristol and Birmingham and is easily accessible to many golfers living in the Midlands, south west England and Wales.
