Our beautiful, mature parkland golf course is always immaculately maintained to the very highest standards and provides an enjoyable challenge that engages with golfers of all abilities. Established in 1891, our rich history tells a story of continuous improvement, ensuring that all aspects of the club exceed the expectations of the modern golfer. We provide a welcoming family friendly atmosphere and the quality of our facilities is without equal in the region. We are ideally situated just 4 miles from both junction 19 of the M5, 4 miles from Bristol and just a short drive from Brunel’s iconic Clifton Suspension Bridge. The Club commemorated it's 125th Anniversary in 2016 and staged the English Women’s Open Stroke Play Championship as part of the club celebrations.

Great golf course in excellent condition, and although it looks straightforward it's difficult to score well on. Nice clubhouse and friendly atmosphere.
