Just a few miles from the picturesque town of Ross-on-Wye is the South Herefordshire Golf Club. Built in 1990 the club has recently undergone a transformation. The new management team took over early in 2005 and quickly set about improving the facilities and the golf course.
The club has the 6800 yard Twin Lakes course, a 12 bay floodlit driving range and a 9 hole par 3 academy course. The course has been improved by significant investment in new equipment, where the most obvious benefits can be seen on the tightly mown fairways and smooth fast running greens.
"It really takes some discipline to concentrate out on the course as the panoramic views are breathtaking."
The area is renowned for the beauty of its gentle rolling hills and picturesque valleys. The course has super views over the three counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and in the far distance the black mountains of Wales. It really takes some discipline to concentrate out on the course as the panoramic views are breathtaking.
The club is easy to find near the village of Upton Bishop, near Ross-on Wye, just off junction 3 of the M50 and well signposted. So it’s an easy journey within an hour from Bristol, Birmingham or Cardiff.
This course is now one of the best anywhere. It's true that off the white tees it's a challenge, but the views and some really spectacular holes make it all worthwhile. The greens and fairways are great.

This course has improved dramatically over the past few years. The newly planted trees are starting to establish themselves, and with the re-shaping of a lot of the fairways, the course has become much more interesting. As a lady 36 handicapper I find it extremely challenging, but very enjoyable. The views are excellent, so even if the golf's off(!) the walk is worth it! If it has been some time since you played this course go back and give it another go, you'll be pleasantly surprised. It's still like playing on a millionaire's golf course, not hassled by people behind and not held up by loads of people in front!

I have played South Herefordshire Golf Course a number of times over the past 4 years and have seen a marked improvement each year as the Course matures. I played the Course today and was totally impressed with the well manicured fairways and true greens. The Course is reasonably long but, with the wide rolling fairways allowing the ball to run, it did not feel so. The views over the Herefordshire countryside and Welsh mountains are spectacular. I have also played a number of other local courses and I now believe this Course is up amongst the best. This Course is a little gem and is a good test of golf for all handicaps and should not be missed.
