The course has streams and small ponds have been woven into the landscape with mature trees and wooded areas been left as nature intended. This is what gives the course a natural beauty, and its golfers some natural hazards!
The first 10 holes will have you negotiating the lower slopes, with streams running both parallel and across the fairways. Enjoy the 11th, which is a challenging uphill par 3, before approaching the scenic holes that overlook Gloucester and the beautiful surrounding countryside. These holes call for some interesting and tricky shots, especially the downhill 18th, where many golfers have tried to drive the green with disastrous consequences!
The new 2 Tier 12th Green can offer some really tricky pin positions, with the 13th one of the most scenic Par 3's with views looking all over Gloucestershire.
Gloucester Golf Club offers a superb range of facilities, both on and off the course. Warm up and practise your swing on the Driving Range before tackling the challenging 18 hole course.
History of the Club
The present golf course was envisaged by Mr Barry Peacey in 1969, to be located on the eastern slopes of Robinswood Hill. At that time, an area of some 250 acres was defi ned and Mr John Day, a golf course architect from Kent, was tasked with providing proposals for an 18-hole golf course. The final layout of the course was very similar to that in use today. Detailed planning permission was granted in 1970.
Development continued until 1975 when Mr Peacey decided to sell. The complex was purchased by Mr G Lewis who continued development of the golf course which was offi cially opened for play in 1976. In 2006 the course was lengthened to 5,969 meters by extending 13th and 14th holes into par 5s which is how you see it today.
I wanted to let you know that the Gloucester Golf Club is an excellent choice for a wake; it’s close to the crematorium, there is a car park and it is a large comfortable room surrounded by greenery. Diane and Tim AdamsWake 24/02/2020Read More Testimonials
