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 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.

The website Top 100 Golf Courses of the World have declared Kingsdown:

"Wiltshire's Best Members Course", 

the only two courses with higher rankings being proprietary clubs.  See the rankings here .

Nice feedback from Jim Worsley, Seniors Captain, Orchardleigh Golf Club (21 August 2019):

Please pass on my thanks to everyone in the Club office, the Catering Team and Greenkeeping Staff for making my Away Day such a success.  Everyone enjoyed both the course and the Carvery dinner, even the rain disappeared just after the first groups had teed off.  Thanks again and look forward to my next visit.
