Course overview

Bath Golf Club is one of the oldest and finest courses in all of England. Established in 1880, this par-18 course offers a true test for all golfers, with its hilltop location and natural contours. Bath Golf Club, Somerset is an 18 hole, par 71 (6,464 yard) parkland course that is ranked #2 in Somerset. Although the course is not particularly lengthy, the designers certainly knew how to use the natural contours of the hilltop location to create a challenging round of golf.

The course has a variety of different holes laid out over some of the finest golfing country in all of Somerset. Shallow soil and limestone ensure quick draining, meaning the course can be kept in superb condition most of the year-round. The greens at Bath are particularly small and many contain borrows, making putting at this course a quite unique challenge, one that catches out many an overconfident player. Bath Golf Club is a must visit destination if you plan on playing in Somerset or the South West.

Course overview

The Kendleshire, a relatively new golf course, is widely regarded as one of the best in the Bristol area and south west. After opening its doors in 1997, the club now is home to 27 holes of golf, excellent practice facilities, short course and a modern clubhouse, bar and restaurant. Hollows & Ruffet make up the original 18 hole layout, however, the newer Badminton layout is equally as impressive.

Playing all 27 during your visit is certainly recommended! The club prides itself on its modern approach to golf. You will receive a friendly welcome and certainly none of the stuffiness of golf courses in years gone by. Whilst the club has a large membership, visitors are very much welcomed and looked after during their stay. The club itself is very much set up to deal with small and large society groups alike. The clubhouse and terrace are perfectly set up overlooking the 18th, so you can watch golfers as finish their round.

On the course, The Kendleshire has built a reputation of an incredibly well-kept golf course which peaks in the summer months but is playable all year round. Modern drainage systems allow for fast running greens which are often some of the quickest in the region. The Kendleshire is based in north Bristol and is easily accessible from the M4, M5 or M32. It is therefore best placed as a stopover venue en route further south or on the way back north.

If you are basing yourself in the area it is best tied in with The Players Golf Club, which does have its own accommodation or The Wellington Hotel. Do note that the Hampton by Hiton at Bristol Airport is situated the other side of the city.
