We have put together a list of superb golf courses in Gloucester in order to help you decide where to go for your golfing holiday:
Gloucester Golf Course
This 18-hole, 6,500 yard, par-72 championship course was designed in order to put the natural terrain to the best possible use. The varying undulations of the land take the course from a height of 600 feet to 200 feet at the base, and golf players will need to keep an eye out for the small ponds and various streams which have been worn into the rolling landscape over time. Straight hitters will appreciate the vast woodlands which surround the course, endowing it with stunning natural beauty. Whether you are a beginner or a pro looking to brush up on your skills, the Gloucester Golfing Academy offers a range of professional advice to everyone who is looking for it.
Brickhampton Court Golf Course
Created in 1994, Brickhampton Court Golf Course was founded by a local family run company who has since maintained a keen interest in ensuring that the golf course develops into a center of true quality. The courses at Brickhampton were designed by Simon Gidman, who is a member of the British Institute of Golf Course Architects and a respected designer of attractive yet challenging golf courses. Set in 200 acres of stunning Gloucestershire countryside, the Brickhampton complex enjoys the benefit of no steep hills, giving golfers the opportunity to focus on the golf rather than climbing the peaks.
Chipping Sodbury Golf Club
Located twelve miles to the North East of Bristol in the United Kingdom, Chipping Sodbury Golf Club is in an area of gorgeous natural beauty at the base of the outstanding Cotswolds hills and adjacent to the historic and full of character market town of Chipping Sodbury. The course was designed by Fred Hawtree, and opened in 1971. The parkland course has since undergone subsequent development, maturing, and care have made for a superb course which presents an excellent challenge to golfers of all levels. The greens and many holes feature a number of water hazards, which should be played smaller than their size as most are slightly raised from the surrounding terrain. The club also offers a range of practice facilities for beginner golfers and is a venue for hosting a number of different events. Golfers looking to stay can even book a golfing holiday provided by the club itself.
