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.

a great day out

Setting off just after one to tackle all 18 holes taking advantage of the twilight rate. The fairways are grand, the greens remarkable and the views terrific. We were all back by quarter to six as night fell! and found the clubhouse and toilets all shut. A great experience from the off. Before we left we visited the Cotswold Hill Cafe which is now part of the Golf complex; a touch pricey but welcome nevertheless as the canteen is closed at the club. Pizzas are on the menu so fab.

What a mad, weird amazing course this is!! Plays like an inland links, greens looked awful but ran pretty true. Very difficult to hold the greens with approach shots - maybe go for bump n runs!! The views go on for miles, truly beautiful. It’s a tough walk, and very hilly. Definitely one to tick off the list.

Fantastic and Frustrating

To be fair the frustrating part of the title is just because I'm not very good at golf.

Scenery isn't going to get much better than on this course. It is stunning all the way around, I've played lots of local course with spectacular scenery and this is probably the best. The members I played with were top notch and I look forward to seeing them again.

The greens were really good except the one which had been previously vandalised which isn't the club fault. There is a lot of evaluation

Fairways and semi rough merge into each other and it isn't always easy to see where the hole goes. With lots of blind shots this is a course which probably should be played twice. When I played it was very windy which isn't uncommon on top of the highest peak of the Cotswolds. This is the closest I've played to links golf, trees are not common here and you rely on the undulations of the land and hope it doesn't throw your ball into deep grass or gorse.

I see why people liken this course to Painswick because of the quarrying activity which has scared the landscape, however it is no where near as tight and is much longer. You need to be smart of the tee here and the driver isn't always the best option as it can land you in trouble even though the courses appears very wide, there is advantages to playing the fairway. Most the rough is fairly short however clumps of it are very thick in areas which did mean we ended up look for balls for a long time in our fourball which I did find frustrating, especially as I lost a few.

This is a course I would recommend playing it will stay with me for a little while. I have good memories.

Sand traps

Beautiful course with fantastic panoramic views on most holes. Bunkers however in desperate need of sand and the large groups of senior members need some review of their etiquette with regard to letting faster groups through, really spoils the experience when held up for fourteen of eighteen holes.

A society MUST

As they advertise, possibly the best picturesque course in England
The views on this course from most holes is breathtaking
The staff here are superb. Great service from the guys in the golf shop, clubhouse and course
The course itself is in great condition, the greens are exceptional. My complements to the ground staff.
The course itself is challenging to say the say the least. Especially today in the wind.
If you a member of a society, get them to book this course

Sitting atop the Cotswolds, played on a day when the wind was really blowing. It is a nice track and some of the views are just spectacular, but there's a lot of public across the course which can be both distracting and frustrating. However, it's a bargain after 1pm, so totally worth it.

LOVE this course. The best in the area when others are waterlogged

This is great fun, amazing views and proper golf. Top 100 English course for £25...what's not to like. Although on top of a hill there is no arduous walking. But a few tricky rocky paths to navigate so not suitable for the 'infirm!'

No water hazards, nor out of bounds and relatively few bunkers, but you have wind to contend with and the occasional quarry to lose you ball in!

I travelled 45 mins from Redditch where courses get easily waterlogged - mine was closed today so my first thought was - the sun is out - I'm going to Cleeve Hill!'.

On top of Cleeve hill the fairways are firm and the greens incredibly good and run true.

Can't wait to go back in the summer, especially to tee it up on the summer tees (especially on 18th).

Just beware lots of families walking with little regard for the danger of a stray golf ball. Otherwise 10/10 experience.

(Round played: Feb 2022 - Score: 80 Handicap: 9.7)

Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant

If you like USGA greens , sprinklers and can’t go anywhere apart from in a golf buggy , this isn’t for you. This is a brilliant olde world golf experience- starting 2 holes are average but then just gets better and better and better. Holes 3-8 are good but 9 onwards were fantastic especially 13,15 ,and then par3 16 is as good as anywhere in UK Top100. On a sunny day there are not many better places to play golf - golf that puts a smile on your face . Loved it so much I bought a points membership for 21/22 !

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