Two miles down Stanley Lane from us and lying alongside the River Severn, dominated by the red sandstone cliffs on its east bank, Bridgnorth Golf Course offers various packages for visitors and societies.  It boasts a comfortable clubhouse and bar with a well-stocked shop and a knowledgeable pro, Steve Russell.
Other great courses nearby include Ludlow, Worfield, Shrewsbury, Patshull Park and The Shropshire.
Astronomy and star gazing
We're lucky enough to have dark skies here on a clear night (although we get a little interference from Telford and Bridgnorth), and from our upper paddock there is a fairly uninterrupted low skyline, so Colemore Farm makes an ideal place for beginners and intermediate star gazers.  We can lend you good binoculars and by prior arrangement we can set up our Meade ETX-125 telescope.  
You may also be interested in the Spaceguard Centre at Knighton, the only organisation in the UK focusing on the risk to Earth of near earth objects.
