Welcome to Bath Golf Club Bath Golf Club is an 18-hole private members’ club situated on Hampton Down above the beautiful and historic city of Bath. It is one of England’s oldest and finest downland courses, and is considered by many the premier golf club in Bath and North East Somerset and one of the top courses in the West Country. Established in 1880, it quickly earned and has kept its reputation as a welcoming club with a thought-provoking course.

We have an active social programme, with a wide variety of events being enjoyed at the Club throughout the year, and are also happy to host functions such as wedding receptions and birthday parties.

Whether you are an established player or just starting your golfing career, we offer a wide range of membership options.

Anthony Roberts, Club Manager

On behalf of the management board, members and staff, may I offer you our warmest welcome. We all look forward to seeing you enjoying your golf.

We are also popular with societies and organisations wishing to arrange a golf day.

The Course and its History Bath is one of the finest and oldest courses in England. Originally laid out in the 1880s using the natural contours of its hilltop location, it was redesigned in 1937 by the legendary course architect, Harry S. Colt, and now measures over 6,500 yards with a par of 71. The course is full of variety and is laid out over fine golfing country. Springy downland turf over shallow soil and limestone ensures rapid draining and the course is usually in superb condition. The greens present a special challenge, being relatively small and containing hidden, and sometimes not so hidden, borrows.

Affectionately known as “Sham Castle” by the locals, the course earned its nickname from the neighbouring architectural folly. The ‘castle’ stands in a field next to the course and although it looks like the entrance gate to an impressive baronial hall, is in fact nothing more than a single wall. It was built during Bath’s 18th century heyday at the request of wealthy Ralph Allen from his own Bath stone in order, as he himself wrote, “to charm all visitors to Bath”.

www.bathgolfclub.org.uk | 11


The Course and its History Continued We are able to offer history, tradition and one of the best golf courses in the South West of England. In 2010, Bath Golf Club was featured in Golf Monthly. The journalist, a great fan of Harry Colt, was thrilled at the prospect of playing one of Harry’s courses. He spoke highly of numerous exciting holes and an extremely friendly clubhouse and wrote: “The excellent course at Sham Castle was no disappointment. In fine condition and perched high up on Hampton Down it has panoramic views down over the Georgian City and across the Avon Valley”.

The Club is committed to making continual improvements to the course, through the efforts of our Head Greenkeeper and his staff, investing in the latest equipment and methods. They work hard to present a course that is in excellent condition throughout the year. We are fortunate to have a limestone-based soil that drains well in the wetter months, but retains moisture in the drier ones, helped by water sprinklers round the greens and tees.

The Course and its History Continued Nature lovers will delight in the plants and wildlife on the course, with managed wild meadows alongside many fairways, flowers such as orchids, and birds including nesting skylarks, buzzards and hunting peregrine falcons.

The course is also a rich archaeological landscape. There are the boundaries of a prehistoric field system, providing useful distance markers on some fairways, a large early Iron Age hilltop enclosure with an entrance in front of the ninth tee, and the bomb-like craters of 18th century surface stone quarrying on a number of holes.

The Spirit of Competition For many people, one of the principal reasons for joining a club is to test their prowess against their peers. Here at Bath we provide plenty of opportunities for this, with competitions throughout the year for individuals and teams, and matches against other clubs. Here is a taste of what’s on offer to members: Men • Regular Saturday competitions for trophies and cash prizes in various formats (medals, Stablefords, foursomes and four balls, Bowmakers and Texas Scrambles) • Knockout matchplay competitions for singles, foursomes and four balls • Club matches: a chance to play in a league against other clubs, both home and away

• Friendly competitions with a variety of roll ups for all ages. A block tee time is reserved and anyone is welcome to join in. It’s a good opportunity to meet people; teams are drawn to ensure a good mix ��� Captain/Pro Challenge: the chance to play a four ball match against the Club Captain and the Professional • Seniors: anyone aged 55 or over is eligible, regardless of handicap level, to play in Seniors competitions and also in friendly matches against other clubs, followed by a modestly-priced dinner • Nomads: offers those unable to play during working hours the opportunity to play in friendly matches against other clubs, teeing off late afternoon, followed by dinner • Open and invitation competitions: when we welcome players from other clubs.

Custom fitting / Radar Technology The extensive expertise and knowledge in their field allied to the use of state-of-of-the-art technology not only enables our professionals to give more efficient and effective lessons, but enables them to assist each golfer to choose exactly the right equipment for their individual needs. To obtain and analyse the technical data they require to identify the best equipment for you, Russell and his team employ the Flightscope X2 Radar system. This fitting/analysis tool provides accurate feedback regarding the ball dynamics in flight and tells them how efficiently the clubs are performing. Then, through testing with varying options of shaft weight, bend profile, flex and club loft, it provides them with the hard evidence necessary to recommend the best club set up for a player. This

valuable information can double the effects of any equipment changes which in turn boosts player confidence levels. Of course interpreting the data provided by Flightscope requires a level of expertise which all of the professionals at Bath Golf Club possess. Their advice is carefully considered in the context of a player’s existing skill level, individual objectives, physiology and playing needs as well as time availability, tuition plans and budget. The data captured can, if required, be forwarded to a third party swing coach.

Coaching Our professionals at are expert in dealing with all aspects of your golf game regardless of your ability level. They have at their disposal both indoor and outdoor coaching facilities as well as state-of-the-art technology (Flightscope X2) to help them analyse your swing plane, ball flight, distance, and other parameters.

First Team coach to the University of Bath. However, don’t think for one minute these duties detract from the commitment he gives to our members and visiting golfers of all abilities. With his 25 years of experience Russell approaches every session with the same level of enthusiasm, caring, commitment and dedication, as does his team.

Russell enjoys an excellent reputation in golf coaching. He is the Somerset Men’s Elite squad Performance Manager, Somerset Under 16 Boys’ performance coach, Somerset Girls’ lead county coach and

Social Bath has a very active Social Committee who organise many fun social and après-golf events, which are always well attended. The annual summer party is a sell-out, as is the Christmas Party, where everyone can show that they have clothes other than waterproofs and woolly hats!

We have excellent catering facilities that allow us to be creative, from a banquet for the parties to snacks in a basket for smaller events. Parking is easy, and we are not far from the city centre if you prefer to arrange a taxi and enjoy the wine list.

Other popular events include Burns Night supper and dancing, regular quizzes, a race night, a treasure hunt around Bath, and themed parties (for example Wild West, and 1960s complete with Vespa and vintage food).

You can make new friends and enjoy excellent activities and entertainment by becoming a social member.

Bath and the Cotswolds Nourished by natural hot springs, Bath offers a unique experience with stunning architecture, great shopping and iconic attractions. Situated at the southern end of the Cotswold Way, the golden city of Bath has been welcoming visitors for over 2,000 years. Designated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, Bath is home to some of the most impressive architectural sights in the world including the Royal Crescent, the Circus and Pulteney Bridge. At the heart of the city, next to the Abbey, is the Roman Baths Museum, which gives a fascinating insight into the original bathing complex and the great Roman temple of Sulis Minerva. Above the Museum in the 18th century Pump Room you can taste the waters, enjoy a meal and listen to music from the Pump Room Trio.

The Cotswolds region covers an area of 790 square miles in SouthWest England and is the country’s largest officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Popular with both the British and visitors from all over the world, the area is well known for gentle hillsides (‘wolds’), outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages and historic market towns. Throughout the Cotswolds, stone features in buildings and walls and provides a common thread, seamlessly blending the historic towns and villages with the surrounding landscape. The countryside is seen as ‘typically English’, as though time has stood still for 300 years.
