Set under the backdrop of the North Chalk Down on the edge of Swindon, this 9 hole, 3170 yard course (par 72 for 18 holes) sits in over 100 acres of mature parkland and offers something for everyone.
The natural contours of the land, mature trees and hedgerows make this an interesting course with many natural obstacles including water features, also bunkers and hazards.
The course has matured beautifully since opening in 2005 and has been designed to offer a reasonable challenge to experienced golfers whilst being fair to those who wish to improve their game. With 2 Par 5’s (one measuring 593 yards), 5 Par 4’s and 2 Par 3’s, the course represents a fair challenge to the seasoned golfer and an encouraging layout to the less experienced player. With three bodies of water coming into play on 4 holes there is always plenty to think about. Our generous, well presented fairways are very inviting, whilst you still need to be accurate enough to find the ideal line into the green.
The course at Basset Down is exceptionally well drained and enables us to stay dry and open when many other local clubs remain closed. It is a rare occasion that we would need to use our winter greens, and even rarer that we have to enforce a trolley ban. With additional new drainage recently been added, we have further enhanced the already well-draining nature of the course.

With planning permission in place, and construction under way, Basset Down is looking to the future by beginning the process of extending to 18 holes. The course, when complete, will spread out over 200 acres. The yardage of the course will be a Championship length 6452 yards, and have a par of 71. This will be made up of three par fives, eleven par fours and four par threes. This will take Basset Down to the forefront of golf in the Swindon area.
For those that may need it we have clubs, trolleys and a buggy for hire. Details and prices can be found here.
Our practice facilities are the best in the area and extensively used by both members and visitors alike. As well as our driving range, we also have a putting green and practice bunker.
