The golf courses you must play in England this autumn |

Hot, dry conditions were an almost constant presence throughout the summer in much of Englandwhich was ideal for golfers but difficult for greenkeepers.

But as we move into autumn, the more temperate weather has resumed, ensuring that our courses will be fabulous when the main season ends.

Where should you be on your list to play over the next few weeks? Well, we now defer to the Golf Shake Communitywho continue to review sites by the thousands every year.

Isolate notes that were submitted in the Golf course section during the months of september, october and november (since 2018), we have selected a selection of the most popular places in the fall, excluding the most expensive courses here to provide accessible options for all golfers.

So as the days get shorter and it gets a little cooler, that shouldn’t stop you from experiencing those 35 golf courses you must play in England this fall!
