Visited here as part of Bunkers Golf Societies end of season trip on 10/11th November 2018.

I must say, the condition of both courses for this time of year was great. The Championship course on the front 9 was a touch wetter and had far more fallen leaves that caused a problem but the remainder of that course and the full 18 on the Hawkstone Course were superb.
The greens had been hollow tined but still rolled quick and true and didn't have a real adverse effect over the 2 days.
The layout of the Hawkstone Course in particular is lovely as it meanders through the natural landscape to reveal some beautiful views and fabulous back drops. The Championship course is a bit tighter and the front 9 a bit bland before it opens up in the a USPGA feel with plenty of water hazards and expansive bunkers.

The hotel was well presented and the staff were all very friendly. We enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal in a private dining area that was perfect for our society end of season awards and let us be lads without having to worry about upsetting other guests.
The rooms were clean and well presented and the hotel generally was very pleasant.

The whole trip cost us £150ish per person and offered good value for this venue. The bar prices were a bit steep at £5 a pint, but you kind of expect that at these hotel courses as you are a captive audience but it doesn't really excuse it.

All in all, a very good venue for any group wishing to enjoy a couple of days of fabulous golf. Give it a go.

Visited hawkstone Park with bunkers golf society, played the two courses over the two days , the day started with a bacon and egg baget delicious ,then off on the first tee ,the championship course all set in beautiful parkland, the greens were fast and true, the falling leaves were a bit of a problem but what could you expect for mid November, I liked this course and would love to play it in the summer.The next day we played the other course , this was my favourite out of the two , spectacular veiws on this beautiful parkland course ,well laid out lovely fairways and the greens were in great condition, would definitely recommend these two top class courses We stayed and the hotel on the Saturday night, had a three course meal the food was delicious and the staff were warm a friendly, all in all a fabulous weekend with a great bunch of lads

Played both courses and was truly amazed. This is much better than carden park. The courses are beautiful and provide a real challenge. The greens are true and run fast (even after bad weather and being winter). The food is great and the rooms are well presented

I visited Hawkstone Park with friends from Bunkers Golf Society for our end of season Golf trip and Presentation of Awards Dinner.
We played The Championship course on Saturday, 10th November. Whilst there had been heavy rain across the country throughout the previous night, the course was relatively dry and the greens remained unexpectedly fast. There was evidence of some recent maintenance on the greens which did interfere with the smooth roll of putts but on the whole the course played well. I found my hotel room to be modern and comfortable and we were all made welcome and booked in quickly and courteously by the hotel's efficient reception staff.
After a fine dinner and following our presentation of awards ceremony, we spent the rest of the evening in the hotel bar where a wide selection of excellent beers, wines and gins was available - but at an average cost of almost £5 per pint it turned out for some to be quite an expensive evening!
On day two we played the Hawkstone Course. This was my own favourite of the two. It was very attractively designed with several beautifully created holes carving their way through the getly undulating Shropshire terrain. This being 11th of November, all players suspended play for two minutes at 11am. A nice touch too was the special hole flag at the eighteenth commemorating Armistice Day. (see photo)
I would like to return to this venue and play the courses in summer conditions.

Played the championship course last summer so we decided to give the Hawkstone course a try and wow much better course, more natural. We played it on Sunday 30th October. The cost of the round was great £18 but the cost of the buggy i thought was a bit of a rip off £30 far to much. The course it's self was very nice. Fairways well maintained and green true and fast. Lots of great looking holes with some awesome views of the Hawkstone Park Follies. I will play it again but ill walk next time.

Stayed and played both courses. The Hawkstone Course was wet after a deluge the day before but in very playable condition and the greens remained fast and true. Again, external factors (rain and more rain) meant we were unable to use buggies on the Championship Course the day after but again, although wet underfoot and muddy in places the course played well. Asking our group to state the better of the 2 courses and the Championship course just about got the decision. Both worth a game.

A great day!! Weather did a bit of everything, which made for a enjoyable day. My good shots were rewarded and any poor shots weren't overly punished. Only downside with the course for me were the bunkers. One or two were flooded, and the sand in them all was almost solid. But the quality of the greens more than made up for that. With regards to the hospitality, the staff and facilities were great, only issue was there wasn't any cider on tap at the bar. All in all, definitely a course ill be looking forward to playing again.

We played the older Hawkstone course which looking at other reviews seems to be the preferred course of most players. I played the championship course last year but dont remember much about it which says a lot I suppose. Other than the great views and surroundings of the back 9 in particular I dont think I,ll remember much about this course either. For me there were no real stand out holes, nothing to get exited about. Even now, a week after playing, I'm finding it hard to think of any individual holes.

Good points were the greens, which played true and consistent, with some challenging pin positions, and the hospitality. It is a great venue for a day out and our society all enjoyed the day, me included, but the course just didn't do it for me.

Played the Hawkstone course with our society. In my eyes, a much nicer course than the Championship course which we played last year. In fact, that was the common view of most of us. The front 9 was good, but the back was fantastic starting with a brilliant par 5 on the 10th. The view from the tee was amazing. Other holes to look out for are the par 3 12th, par 4 13th and par 4 17th. Both those par 4s have blind tee shots before firing down to inviting greens.

The greens and tee boxes were all in good condition. The pace of play was good - this was contradictory a little to what I'd read before - maybe it was just one of those days. There were plenty of societies out that day too.

Hospitality fantastic - we had a meal afterwards and when the manager asked if we wanted more chips, I'm not quite sure what answer he thought he'd get.

This was one of our societies majors and it had a fitting venue. A great track and I'm looking forward to going back very soon.

Had a great day out at this venue. We played the older more established Hawkstone course here but there is also a newer championship course as well as a hotel and a large clubhouse with conference facilities and good visitors locker rooms with showers etc. Staff in the clubhouse were very welcoming, service was good as was the food both before and after our round. There are plenty of practice facilities available which I probably should have taken more time to use judging on my iron play which included an air shot and a massive divot out of the teebox on 7 both of which I haven't done in a long long time.(apologies to the greenkeeping staff) However even though my game wasn't that sharp the course is set up very fairly for a society in my opinion meaning I could still get my ball in the hole in a reasonable fashion despite not having my A game. Greens are good and consistent, fairways are tight in places but the rough wasn't too penal meaning it was easy enough to find balls that went a little off line. The bunkers could do with some new sand as there wasn't much in them and they were wet and compacted. There are some really good holes on this course with some great scenery as a backdrop and we were lucky enough to get a flypast by the red arrows and a typhoon eurofighter from a nearby raf base which just added to the day. I will defenitely play here again at some point and you should too!

Played and stayed end of September and been here many times over the years. It's is a difficult one to review as it can be fantastic value if you get the right deal. But the courses are what they are, the set up caters for high volumes of visitors and societies and therefor the course and facilities can be a bit tired.

The layout of the courses is reasonable and Although not the best you will play you have to remember the cost of the round.
