What the club says: Situated just a mile from the Bristol ring road, Stockwood Vale Golf Club is often described as Bristol’s best golf secret where no two holes are alike. The par 71 course offers golfers of all abilities the opportunity to play on a beautifully designed and maintained course that sweeps the golfer through the peace and tranquillity of Stockwood Vale. This course is open all year round due to its natural free drainage. The course is definitely worth a visit.

Greens were lightening quick but in good nick. Very challenging course and you have to think your way round, would definitely do things a little differently if played again

First time played for about 3years, course in excellent condition greens quite rapid and challenging, bunkers(which I saw quite a few of) and fairways again well manicured and fair, would love to play course more and highly recommend.

Awesome course, shame the greens had just been dressed, they are extremely hard and fairly fast which was a shame. The course is generally in good condition and offers some of the best facilities and challenging holes in the Bristol area. Awesome course.

Played in January on a cold but dry day. Course in good nick for winter no temp greens only a couple of tee mats. Greens were very playable if a bit slow but that's fine for time of year. Couple of the greens were frozen! Overall an enjoyable course, plenty of variety and changes in elevation. A good walk even though not a long course. Defford want to play again. Stovkwood Lane is really y narrow in places so not a pleasure to get to!

Awesome course greens were extremely quick given the time of year. The course will punish higher handicappers like myself. The club is very active on FB too and anyone can join. My last review of this course was December 2015 and the course is still in fantastic condition.

Today as an extra bonus the trees looked spectacular in their autumn colours.

Well worth a visit. The course was well kept and had some lovely holes. We all enjoyed the course. If you are getting on in years get a buggy which are very reasonable. Great views. We were well looked after but the staff, the clubhouse was new and clean. Couldn't fault it.

(Round played: Dec 2015 - Score: 107 Handicap: 16.9)

This course is normally out of my budget but because it is on a current special offer I played here with a mate.

We both found the course in excellent condition despite the really poor weather. Some holes have a largish walk between them and but there is pavement to stop you slipping and sliding. There is excellent signage guiding you around the course and distance markers are abundant on every hole (200/150/100 yards) marked with stakes at the edge of the fairway and discs in the middle. It is true that every hole is different thanks to the wonderful natural contours of the landscape. Hole 13 is particularly interesting where you have to hit into a valley on a 330 par 4. It feels like it takes forever to get to the fairway as you zigzag down the valley to get to the bottom.

My only concern is that holes like this could make play particularly slow in busy periods. However the course is really well looked after with not a single scruffy bunker to be seen (there are over 50 bunker on the course so you will land in one) and the greens are immense.

I highly recommend you visit this course as I think this is the most complete course I have played out of the 10 I have visited this year in the south Gloucestershire area (although I believe this course is North Somerset as I saw a road sign). I will certainly be doing so again but not in the driving rain.

A great find. We thoroughly enjoyed the course. Some spectacular tee positions. The greens were in excellent condition, fast and true, with some tricky pin positions. I would recommend for all standards of players.
We did fiund it dissapointing that the kitchen closed at 2pm and all we could be offered with our post match beer was a packet of crisps. Surely it must be viable for any course as good and busy as this to have someone in the kitchen during the afternoon, even if just to make bacon rolls and a bowl of chips?
