The Course

Set under the backdrop of the North Chalk Down on the outskirts of Swindon, this 9 hole, 3,170 yard course (par 72 for 18 holes) sits on 100 acres of mature parkland and offers something for every golfer.

A combination of the natural contours of the land, mature trees, hedgerows and water features make this an interesting course with a variety of obstacles to keep you on your toes. Our 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 four holes, there's always plenty to think about. 

The course is exceptionally well drained and enables us to stay dry and open when many other local clubs remain closed, especially during the winter months. It's a rare occassion when we would need to enforce a trolley ban. 

We now offer tee bookings in advance for visitors via our Online Booking System. These can be made up to a week in advance, as well as on the day. All of our special offers can be booked online, and we also offer some exclusive online rates throughout the year. Members can book two weeks in advance. Tee closures are limited, details of which can be found on our Fixtures Page.

Why not view our hole by hole gallery to see our beautiful course for yourself? Our scorecard is also available for you to view here.

With the construction of our next 9 holes well underway, we're looking into the future. When complete, the course will spread out over 200 acres and the yardage of the course will be a Championship length of 6,452 yards, par 71. This will be made up of three par fives, eleven par fours, and four par threes. This will take our course to the forefront of golf in the Swindon area. 

For those who may need to hire clubs, trolleys or a buggy, details and prices can be found here.
