"Lovely to see a club from Wiltshire being represented at such an event.”


I have been lucky to play a number of golf courses in the South West and also further afield, but it is always a real pleasure to return to my home course at Kingsdown where I started as a boy.  The greenkeepers and management staff have done an incredible job, the course has extensive practice facilities, excellent greens and lovely views
