Course overview

Enmore Park Golf Club is one of Somerset’s finest parkland courses. From its highest point this course offers extensive views over nearby hills and across the Bristol Channel, and is easily accessible from the M5. The club was formed in 1906 in nearby Cannington. In 1932, the Club moved to its present location in Enmore as a 9 hole course. Then, in 1969, golf course architects Hawtree & Co were engaged to determine the amount of land to be purchased and to design an 18 hole course.

This fabulous championship golf course is a hidden gem of the South West set within the lower slopes of the glorious Quantock Hills. Two loops of nine start and finish at the clubhouse. At par 71 on 6,434 yards for men and 5,683 yards par 73 for ladies, the course offers a challenging test to all standards of golfer and is immensely entertaining.

To add to Enmore’s pristine condition, the course offers panoramic views of the surrounding area.

Ponds are in play on five of the holes and par 3’s which are set up to test the most accurate of golfers. The long, uphill par 4 10th requires the most accurate of drives to avoid finding the trees, and is one of the most daunting holes in the West Country.
