Arscott Golf Club is well worth a visit. Set in a wonderful location with fantastic views from all parts of the course across Shropshire's border country. The 18 hole course has been open since August 1992 but its maturity belies its age. Massive old oak and beech trees grace the course along with the remains of long forgotten mining and brick making industries. Large pools on the 17th and 18th holes are evidence of the clay dug over 100 years ago for brickworks in nearby Cruckmeole and Hanwood. These pits now create very testing hazards on the last four holes, many golfers will tell you how they can change a winning card.

Youngsters can let their imagination go wild at the Enginuity design and technology centre, as they become a design engineer for the day, able to play with huge interactive exhibits, X-ray everyday objects to see how they are made, control a ‘river’to generate electricity and compete against a robot. Modern equipment is combined with historic machinery to explain everyday principles - by turning a small flywheel you can pull a real locomotive.
