Bristol & Clifton Golf Club

Course overview

Bristol & Clifton Golf Club is a regular host of England Golf Events and has earned a reputation as one of the finest courses in the Bristol area. A beautifully mature and undulating parkland course that stretches 6413 yards through the beautiful Somerset countryside and boasts tree-lined fairways and lightning fast greens. The design of the course means that you often find yourself in secluded and tranquil areas surrounded by the woodland, faced with a course that offers a varied challenge that will test golfers of all levels, with a number of doglegging par 5s, short but tricky par 4s and back to back par 3s with tightly bunkered greens. Posting a good score here will require accurate shots as the tree lined fairways and greens will punish any wayward shots and some finesse on the greens as they can be very tricky during the summer months.

In addition to the fantastic golf on the course, Bristol & Clifton Golf Club also boasts a fantastic range of practice facilities, with an undercover driving range, short game area and putting green where you can warm up or hone your skills before and after your round. The clubhouse has a bar & lounge where you can relax and enjoy a local ale or get a lunchtime bite to eat, with al fresco dining options available if the weather suits.

Bristol & Clifton Golf Club offers a fantastic golfing experience so we highly recommend adding this venue to your Bristol golf tour!
