What the club says: Founded in 1888 and set in the beautiful rolling Marlborough Downs, the course presents a real challenge to the low handicapper - the Wiltshire Professional Championship has been held at Marlborough for the last 17 years - at the same time as providing a fair test for those with higher handicaps. At 6,501 yards from the White tees (6,209 from the Yellow tees and 5,578 from the Ladies tees), Marlborough's downland course is a fair challenge for low handicappers and less experienced player alike.

Reviewed May 21 2019 by Roger C - rated 3 out of 5
Played May 2019. A lot of the reviews refer to the poor state of the fairways.

The back nine suffered in the Summer of 2018 and has not recovered. There are lots of bare patches. It looks worse in the rough between the tees and the fairways. The club themselves have a note on the website saying that reseeding is going on early May on 11 and 12. We played late May and they were still on Winter Rules. The Pro actually told us to drop or place within a club length?

That said - they are plainly addressing it.

Also - Greens - very good. Very true. General turnout ofthe course as a whole - excluding the hot weather damage from last year - was really good.

We will go back. But would want the damage to have been resolved.

So I am not saying don't go. Just be advised. One wold hope that it will improve later in the Summer.

Like a lot of course suffered with last year's weather. Now back to very good condition. Greens were superb. Always a delight and best club in the area.

Over Priced! Poor Condition

at ?35 for 18 holes, i thought this was a little pricey in comparison to a few other local courses.

the course looks like its been pounded but 45 degree sunshine all day every day. yet its probably more like 10 degrees. The fairways are brown with dead hard grass everywhere. Some of the greens are dead and missing some grass all together. some even had stone coming out of the greens.

it needs some major TLC.

First time of playing and will return again. Greens excellent and difficult to read, fast too, so pay attention. Pro shop very friendly although some members pushed in front of us at registration without a sorry etc.! Great breakfast.

Booked via tee times and for ?17.50, brilliant value for money. Course was quiet (3pm) & in very good condition, greens were excellent. Nice mix of holes, testing undulating greens with some tricky pin positions. Quite open in places, cracking views of the surrounding countryside, will definitely return.

Some members need to stop judging people and lose their attitude! A great course ruined by a few which could be enjoyed by the many.

Played with a Member but still a bit pricey. Greens very good but not too quick. Dry weather made the course relatively short but a most enjoyable round.

A course I played about 20 odd years before. Funny how you can still remember courses after a long time. Still a good test of golf and the course was in really good condition. Greens were of an even pace and fairly quick, making putting enjoyable. Good pace of play.
