Kingsdown Golf Club

Welcome to Kingsdown Golf Club

Founded in 1880, Kingsdown Golf Club has outlived all but 12 English Clubs and it is the second oldest Golf Club in the West of England (behind Westward Ho!) and the oldest Club in Wiltshire.

The downland course is renowned for its beautiful scenery, luscious 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. Whilst seemingly open and forgiving, the course will punish errant play; play intelligent and thoughtful golf and you will be rewarded.
