What's on this Easter at Basset Down? - 05/04/2019

With the Easter holidays now underway, we know that keeping the little ones entertained isn’t always easy. We’ve got lots of different activities available at Basset Down GC to enjoy as a family, whether you’ve just got an hour to spare, or a whole afternoon!
Footgolf – the only place to play footgolf in Swindon!
9 hole ‘crazy footgolf’
Our 9 hole crazy footgolf course is (as far as we’re aware), the only one like it in the UK! Each hole is themed on a different landmark in Wiltshire, including the White Horses, and our very own version of Stonehenge. A round takes about 40 minutes to play and is perfect for all ages, even the little ones. 

18 hole footgolf course
Alongside the 9 hole course, we also have Wiltshire’s longest 18 hole footgolf course. With more natural obstacles such as water, bunkers, ditches and trees to play around, this course isn’t just about how far you can kick the ball, but tests your skills too.
Further information…
Both courses are open every day from 09:00 until dusk. Either turn up on the day or call us in advance to book a tee time (01793 812336). Ball hire is £1.00/head, or alternatively you can bring your own for free. Please note that we strictly do not allow football boots (trainers/astros are fine), and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
We also offer family & group discounts. If there’s a group of 12 or more of you, get in touch and we may be able to offer you a better deal!

Special Offers…
* Combine 9 holes of footgolf with hitting balls on our driving range!
* Play 18 holes at the weekends & get a bacon bap, tea/coffee for just an extra £2.00!

Driving Range
The beauty of any driving range is that you don't need to know how to play golf to give it a go. It's all about trying something new and having lots of fun in the process! Our 20 bay, undercover driving range is open throughout the day, and there’s no need to book in advance. We have free club hire available for all ages, and basket prices start from just £2.20 for 30 balls. All you need to bring is comfy shoes and clothes.
Special Offer… Combine your visit on the range with 9 holes on our crazy footgolf course from just £20.00 for 4 people!
For those of you who play golf, our 9 hole golf course is also open throughout the week, with last tee times currently at 17:30 now that the clocks have changed (finally!). If you’re looking to get out to play, we do require juniors to have played golf before, and have their own set of clubs. Earlier this year we introduced our ‘Junior Short Course’, with tees at shorter distances on each hole. Please note that juniors must be accompanied by an adult at all times.    



If you’re feeling a bit puckish after your round or time on the range, enjoy a bite to eat in our Parkland Café. We’ve got a great value Childrens’ Menu, a Specials Board and varied menu to keep energy levels up. Be sure to try a slice of our homemade cakes too! Tables available in the clubhouse or enjoy the beautiful views of the North Chalk Downs and 9th tee from our patio.
