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 .

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

Hugh Tayler, Kingsdown Golf Club (May 2020)

The Farrington Ladies had a great day yesterday, thank you for all your help in organising it and please send thanks to all the staff who helped. Kayleigh and her team were brilliant.

Ladies Spring Lunch -Tuesday 3rd March 2020

Friday 6th March 2020

With the dining room decorated in spring colours, with plants and bunting the scene was set for a light hearted Spring Lunch. Forty ladies were greeted with a gin cocktail before sitting down to a two course carvery of beef and turkey along with a fantastic selection of vegetables, this was followed by a deliciously baked chocolate brownie and ice cream. Coffee and tea followed and ladies were then invited by tables to participate in a gin making class hosted by local distiller Holly Bower from the Scout and Sage Micro Distillery, Semington.
