Great golfing to be found in Aston Wood

Its mix of sweeping fairways, gently rolling hills, deciduous copses, lakes, ponds and a babbling brook epitomise the idea of the golf course as 'mother nature with a manicure'. Peter Alliss and Clive Clark designed the course, which is of USPGA standard - and the clubhouse isn't bad, either.
