South Cotswolds Golf Tour

Overview

Embark on your three-day golf tour from your base at the fantastic new rooms at The Players Golf Club, located in picturesque North Bristol/South Cotswolds. Offering two stunning courses, The Codrington and The Stranahan, this club is known for its high-quality golf and friendly atmosphere.

The Codrington course is the main draw of the venue and the recommended course for this golf tour. A par-72 championship layout and European Tour qualifying course. It is designed with both beginners and skilled players in mind and can be played from a variety of tees. The course is relatively easy to walk but does feature an abundance of water and insists on good shot making and a solid short game to build a decent score.

15 minutes away and into the Cotswolds you will visit Castle Combe Golf Club. This club is nestled in the Wiltshire countryside, encased by the serene nature that accompanies the quaint village of Castle Combe.

This golf course, though not particularly lengthy, is a test of precision and course management skills. Each hole is unique, presenting a different set of challenges to test golfers of all levels. A buggy is almost certainly required here, but useable all year round thanks to the buggy paths. The course is one which could perhaps be described as an exhibition layout. Hole and hole of twists, turns, and utter quality conditioning. The changes in elevation give this course a unique feel and its fantastic design is truly different from anything else locally. Mixed with the exclusive nature of the club and attention to detail at every turn, Castle Combe is likely to be a highlight of any trip.

Chipping Sodbury Golf Club is the final course on this recommended tour. A traditional members club steeped in history and tradition and located close to your base at The Players Golf Club. The course is meticulously maintained, offering smooth, fast greens and well-groomed fairways. The greens are certainly challenging and are renowned for their run off and subtle breaks.

This golf tour takes you on a journey to three of the finest golf courses in the region. Located close to your recommended base at The Players Club, driving is kept to a minimum whilst you enjoy 3 courses offering a different feel and challenge.

Experience one of the Cotswolds’ exclusive golf offerings

The Manor House Golf Club is unique, exceptional course located in the heart of Wiltshire.

This fascinating course is set in a beautiful parkland estate, surrounded by rolling hills and lush greenery, providing a serene and peaceful atmosphere that is perfect for a day of golf.

Designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark, two of the most renowned golf course architects in the world, the Manor House Golf Club boasts a unique and challenging layout that will test even the most skilled golfers. With a par of 72 and measuring over 6,500 yards, this course is no what you would call a championship layout, but the vast changes in elevation and way in which Alliss & Clark have constructed the holes make it one of the very best in the region.

The course is known for its well-manicured fairways, steep slopes and tiered greens, you’ll certainly want to take a buggy when visiting Castle Combe. With paths the whole way around the course, buggies can be used year round, which is a benefit to anyone taking on this course.

The Manor House Golf Club is one of those which has an air of exclusivity about it. Whilst certainly not as closed off as it may have been years ago, it is still known as one of the premium courses in the area, and little touches such as the towels in the bathrooms, the free range balls with your tee time and extras in your golf buggy give the place a country club feel.

The clubhouse is a stunning, Grade II-listed building overlooks the first tees and 18th green, and offers a range of amenities for golfers and non-golfers alike. From the fully-stocked pro shop to the cozy bar and restaurant.

For those looking to improve their game, the Manor House Golf Club also features a state-of-the-art practice facility, including a driving range, putting green, and short game area. The club’s team of experienced PGA professionals are on hand to provide expert coaching and advice, ensuring that you make the most of your time on the course.

Overall, the Manor House Golf Club is an experience worth having and a must-visit destination for any golfer visiting the Wiltshire/South Cotswolds area. Its challenging yet rewarding layout, stunning surroundings, and top-quality facilities make it one of the finest golf courses in the region.

Course Overview

Chipping Sodbury Golf Club was formed in 1905 as a 9-hole venue and in 1971 was developed into a fantastic 18-hole parkland course thanks to the work of legendary course designer Fred Hawtree.

Since then the course has matured into an exceptional England Golf host championship venue, measuring at almost 7,000 yards from the back tees. Fear not, a variety of teeing positions means this course is playable for all standards and with relatively flat terrain, is walkable for most. As with many member’s courses in the local area, the course has excellent greens, certainly through the season, and the course style is as you would expect from a Hawtree design with a good variety of hole designs including dog legs, treelined par 4 and 5’s, changes in elevation, intersected with strategically placed water hazards throughout the course. The greens also protect the course by way of their “up-turned saucer” greens with penal run-offs.

Off the course, the clubhouse at this members club offers a friendly atmosphere where you can enjoy a casual drink or bite to eat after your round.

Chipping Sodbury is also well located for a tour in the North Bristol area, as both The Players Club & Kendleshire Golf Club are just a short drive away.

  • How do GSW keep money safe?

    We are extremely proud of the service we provide and a large part of this is ensuring our client’s money is safe. Our practices comply with the 2018 package travel directive meaning that your money is safe with both ourselves and the venues your choose to visit.

    The money for your golf break is paid into a trust account run by an independent partner, so you have peace of mind that no matter what happens, your money is being looked after.

  • What happens if we can’t go on our planned trip?

    Deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable to a new date or break. We aim to be as flexible as possible and will treat each situation on a case by case basis.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • Why book with a tour operator?

    Good question, could you not do this all yourself? The answer is yes you could. You are able to locate the ideal hotel with the accessibility you need to the clubs you plan to play. You could go back and forth with your target venues and line up the tee times.  You could also contact each venue individually to advise them of group number changes and requests during the build up to your trip.

    Alternatively you could;

    – Talk to us about the trip you are planning.

    – Receive quotes for perfectly crafted package meeting your ideal requirements.

    – Secure the booking with small deposits staged in a way to make your life easier as an organiser.

    – Have your funds fully insured and independently held by PTS, our client trust provider.

    – Have changes made to whole tours with just one call or email.

    – Receive exclusive extras such as free places.

    – Pay less with our packages than going direct to venues.

    Why can we do this?

    Quite simply we have spent years (since 2015) forging strong relationships with hotel, golf club and golf resort venues across the South West. We are the expert tour operator for the region and are know for our high quality and personal service to our clients (just see our Google and TrustPilot reviews).

  • Who uses Golf South West?

    The majority of our clients are UK based domestic travellers. We deal with groups of any size, from single travellers and couples, to large golf societies.

    We also are the favoured golf DMC for the South West of England and preferred regional partner of Golf Tourism England. We regularly work with tour operators from Europe, America and elsewhere to provide bespoke tour packages allowing overseas travellers to experience the beautiful West Country.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.

  • Why are golf resort prices the same as elsewhere?

    Put simply, all tour operators work from the same contracted rate card when it comes to stay and play golf resort packages. When it comes to golf tours, that is a different matter, but golf resorts are a level playing field.

    If you find a vastly different price, it’s likely you’ve been misquoted and usually this does come back to bite.

    The question this poses is why book a stay and play golf break with Golf South West if you can book direct or with one of the large operators and receive the same price?

    Benjamin Franklin once said “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after
    the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

    We have a small team so booking through us means you receive a personal service. You are more than just a number to us, we are a tour operator where you will likely get to deal with the same contact throughout the process, who will get to know you and your group and respond efficiently to your queries.

    We know our venues and the people who work there. This ensures a smooth process from initial enquiry to the end of your stay.

    Financially you have an extra layer of protection as your money is securely stored in an independent trust account and is fully insured when it is released to the venue(s) you are visiting.

    We are fortunate to have some exclusive “extras” with selected venues across the South West. We offer 1 in 16 free on every trip AND run an exclusive voucher scheme for our stay and play client bookings.

    We often feel we add further value to our clients when it comes to our bespoke golf tour packages, but you can rest assured that when making a stay and play golf resort booking, Golf South West will offer you an extremely high level of service, financial protection and may even offer you a saving or an exclusive extra!
