Highly Recommended 2020

What the club says: Cleeve Hill is a magnificent heath land course located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. From a commanding position in the Cotswolds, breathtaking views are available over an area taking in the Forest of Dean, Severn Vale, the Malverns - and beyond to the Black Mountains and the Brecons.

Set in 1,000 acres of Cleeve Common, the truly awesome vistas from the course embrace 10,000 years of human occupation - with prehistoric and Roman settlements punctuating a landscape rich in wild flowers. Rare orchids, the Roman snail and various species of butterfly bring added fascination to the scene. For golfers about their business, the setting is idyllic, inspiring and refreshing.

Stunning location

Bunkers require several tons of extra sand in each, greens need proper attention and protection from the livestock.

My absolute favourite by a long chalk

This course has well groomed fairways, fast greens and wonderful views. It's an honour to share the beautiful landscape with walkers and riders. The golf is exciting and revealing yet by the 18th, I've had enough for the day.

A truly hidden gem. On arrival, the place didn’t look anything special and as we found out, the course conditions were a little rough around the edges but those are the only real flaws.
A really fantastic, links style course, played way up on a hill top with the best views of any course locally by some distance.
Some really quirky holes which get you talking. Course knowledge isn’t essential but definitely helps as there are a lot of blind shots but markers are well positioned.
The course was riddled with sheep poo but that’s ok as there were none on the greens.
The head pro who welcomed us was absolutely fantastic. Greeted us with a smile and even followed us to the first tee to give us a bit of course information.
Overall, a really really fun course to play. If I lived a little closer, I’d be a regular visitor.

Cleeve hill first visit

Paid ?25 and had a 810am tee off...minor niggle that no one was there from the club so could not get a scorecard (a member luckily had a spare)...that aside it was a superbly scenic course and when a helicopter is going past at the same altitude it tells you how high you are...greens were in decent nick and although more signage ref next tee,150,200 yard markers would have helped we would go again,the terrain not for the unfit though...

Love this course- and got my first Hole in One!

What a super course. 17th December and such firm fairways. Hardly any mud on my clothes or gear which is outstanding.
Love the views and although it is wide open for hitting driver on most holes the short game is a challenge. Many elevatd greens with steep banks and run offs so the biggest challenge to your chipping/short wedges I have encountered in ages.

It is a must play. the views are amazing.

Oh and did I say I 'aced' the 15th. Superb hole over a quarry. 8 iron wind assisted boom!

I sincerely hope one of the bids is successful to keep it going after March.
Old Tom Morris will be turning in his grave!

Such a friendly pro in the shop too.

Can't wait to go back £16 is a bargain. 1/2 the tees were on mats but who cares when you play on such firm fairways!

Do it before you die !

We played the course on a beautiful day which showed this wild course in all its glory without the wind making the golf too difficult.
The almost 360*views from this course are worth the ?15 green fee alone.
Of course the greens are not perfect but what would you expect of a course virtually on top of a small mountain.Go & enjoy - it may not be there for much longer.

Wonderful experience - thank you to Dave and Hugh for their warm welcome.
What a course - I have never played so many holes where you're unsighted off the tee -a true inland links test - will be going back for sure. Fair course with very few uneven bounces.

Great Course

What a fantastic course. Fairways generous and in good condition for mid October. Greens were true and course is a good test for all handicaps. Views are 360 degrees, beautiful on a clear days. Yes there are walkers, mountain bikers but they do not impact on the enjoyment. Clubhouse and changing rooms quirky, probably do with an update; food and drinks excellent and good welcome. Pro was great, and course definitely worth the 1 hour drive.

Most enjoyable round ever

Arrived here after reading a few good reviews, and was certainly not let down!! Although the clubhouse can give a bit of a poor first impression, I found the course a genuine treat to play. 8 blind holes really make you think about your shots, but if you follow the marker sticks and get a good hit, you can be rewarded. Great views from the course we're an absolute bonus. I've played some great courses, but this was the one that I genuinely walked away with a smile on my face

Remarkable & Memorable Course

Played here June '19 .

Every once in a while i discover a course that is a revelation & this is one of them .

It's on top of a hill on the highest point in Gloucestershire .Hence you get a combination of incredible far reaching panoramic views ( the best views that i have seen on an inland course) & a course that has endless excellent holes .
A very natural & undulating course & there is a feeling of tranquility ,remoteness & getting away from everything up here.
The holes are very well designed to fit in with the natural contours & the course covers a vast area to the extent that on the farthest part of the course at the 13th green it seems as if you are miles from the clubhouse .
Great collection of par 3's & just when the course starts to feel a little long winded you come across a superb stretch of holes (13 to 16 ) as you turn & head back towards the clubhouse .13 is a par 5 which inclines & then drops down sharply to a green surrounded by mounds as you come over a ridge which reveals even more views ,14 is a brilliant par 4 where you hit up to a marker post then go up & over 2 ridges ,15 a great par 3 across a chasm & 16 another excellent long par three through a funnel of mounds.It feels very evocative on this far section of the course.

Course condition was good in is kept to be natural with the greens being very nice to putt on & the course as far as i can remember is bunkerless.

It feels slightly underwhelming when you arrive ,as is the clubhouse .Yes it's a long & undulating in places walk round but for anyone who hasn't played here before if you pick a sunny day it is absolutely worth it.
An absolute bargain at £12 after 2 p.m.
