Kingsdown Golf Club

Welcome to Kingsdown Golf Club.  Founded in 1880, it 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 superb greens. The excellent drainage makes play possible all year round.  The course was only closed for 2 days in 2017 and that was due to snow.  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.

Nice feedback from Members of Minchinhampton GC (following their Reciprocal visit)
