Founded in 1880, Kingsdown Golf Club is the second oldest Golf Club in the West of England (behind Westward Ho!) and the oldest Club in Wiltshire.

Our downland course is renowned for its stunning scenery, beautiful fairways and, of course, its superb greens. The excellent drainage makes play possible all year round. The Men’s White Tees, the course, a Par 72, measures 6,501 yards in length. For the Ladies, the Red Tees boast 5,744 yards and a Par 73.
