The Stratford upon Avon Golf Club current captain welcomes visitors - As Captain of one of the oldest and most revered golf clubs in Warwickshire, I warmly welcome both visitors and societies to enjoy our very special course and club in this our 125th year.
Stratford on Avon golf Club was founded in 1894 and moved to its present location, off Tiddington Road, in 1925. Only a few years later our Captain was the inspirational Samuel Ryder, inaugurator of the famous Ryder Cup matches. Held every two years between the top professional golfers of America and of the UK and Europe, this has now become one of the most iconic team prizes in sport.
We have a challenging yet very picturesque par 72 course, respected and admired by both low and high handicap golfers alike.
