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.
Keith, I know that I spoke to both yourself and Steve Elway on the day, but I just wanted to send you another communication about my experience last Friday. I have played at Gloucester for about 30 years now and the course is in the best condition that I have ever seen it. I know that you have faced various challenges over the last two years or so but you and your team are to be congratulated for the hard work and effort that you have clearly put in. The other Minch Captain's that I played with thought exactly the same. I addition to the course, the food and service in the bar area was excellent and the chap clearing away the dirty dishes from the tables was most efficient! The whole experience was first class. Thanks again and please pass on my sentiments to your staff. Best regards, Trevor Lee 2015 Captain MGCTrevor Lee Friday July 12th 2019 18/09/2019Read More Testimonials
