30 November 2018
A short drive north east of Bristol and you'll find Chipping Sodbury Golf Club, set in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Chipping Sodbury Golf Club is situated 12 miles North East of Bristol (South West England), in an area of outstanding natural beauty at the foot of the Cotswold hills and adjacent to the historic, characterful 17th century market town of Chipping Sodbury. The Fred Hawtree designed Beaufort Course was opened in 1971 and has easy access from both the M5 and M4 motorways. Subsequent maturing, development and care have given rise to a superb parkland course which presents a challenge to all levels of golfer, whether from the championship tees, which measure 6994 yards, or from several other sets of tees which allow all golfers to enjoy their round. Water hazards are a feature on many holes and the greens, though large, play smaller than their size, as many of them are raised slightly from the surrounding terrain.
In 2009 the club hosted the English County Finals and was again chosen by the English Golf Union to host the English Seniors County Finals in 2016. Many Gloucester County events and matches are held at the club, while the West Region PGA Championship was held in 2015, along with the Gloucester & Somerset PGA Matchplay Championship every year since 2013. Societies and individual groups of visitors are welcome on weekdays and there is some availability at the weekend, although prior booking is advised.
