Absolutely smashing course, staff were really good, gave us a free coffee half way round, couldn't do enough to keep us happy. Really challenging course, even tougher in windy conditions. Unlike any course you will ever play, would highly reccommend.

Over from Scotland for a few days to see family and played here for the first time. The test of a course at this time of year for me is always in the quality of the greens; they were immaculate and very professionally maintained. The design of the course is also first rate, with lots of interesting holes where no... More

Wonderful layout of a golf course in a piece of vey unique terrain. Wonderful vision of the late Christs O'Connor jnr to develop such a test of golf in the Esker Ri. A definite must play course if you're in the Midlands.

Hi we recently visited this superb golf coarse the home of Shane Lowry for 2 days of pure enjoyment. I can safely say it is one of the best trips away we have had with our society. Everyone involved with Eskers Hills made us so welcome and looked after us so well. A return trip is definitely on the cards

recently played this gem. the glorious weather only added to a super day on a super course. this course represents a serious test requiring every shot in the book and given the poor state of my golf at the moment it was still a great day out. it encouraged shots i feared were long gone and forgotten, but the fantastic...

We enjoyed Esker Hills so much we booked to play it again the next day, and remind ourselves of how well laid out this course is. Each hole is a delight to look at, then play, with some great views from the higher points of the course. Ray and the other staff gave us a really warm welcome. Looking forward... More

We had a great day at Esker Hill Golf Club, the course was in great condition and even the greens were super fast after there sanding and trimming. Ray at the counter was super helpful and lovely. Esker Hill is always a recommendation.
