What the club says: Ogbourne Downs Golf Club is one of the finest Downland Golf Courses in Wiltshire. The Course, designed by five time Open Championship winner J.H. Taylor, is set amidst 200 acres of glorious downland terrain. Innate contours, natural valley’s and sweeping undulations make for a fantastic test of golf.

Challenging links like course inland.

With its undulating hills, this course challenges at almost every hole. Set around the Marlborough Downs, you?ll get some great views and plenty of wildlife, including numerous Red Kites and Buzzards. Permanent tees and greens all year round, no matter what the weather is. It?s excellently maintained and one of the best kept secrets around the county. You won?t be disappointed.

Even better "Post Lockdown"

The work carried out by greenkeepers during the lockdown has seen Ogbourne Downs improve immensely. The newly defined fairways & greens approach enhance the features. Never get bored with playing this course as the weather conditions ensure each game is different.

Superb condition

The work that has been undertaken during lockdown and the guidance of a professional consultant has put the course into superb condition helped of course by fine weather. Despite considerable use with the easing of lockdown restrictions the course has never been better and is a treat to play.

Great views

A hilly and decent course with some great downhill holes, especially the par 5 valley hole. Spectacular views across the downs from the higher holes. Some of the greens are only 7/10 but that's just the nature of the ground the course is built on and they are open al year round.

Very interesting for those playing it for the 1st time......hardly a flat lie to be had but once you`ve mastered the sloping fairways it`s enjoyable & challenging. All year round course, well maintained by hard working green staff, friendly welcome...

Hilly

Well kept course and it drains well. Hilly and most fairways incline to one side, so if not accurate then playing uphill all the way. Clubhouse good and food lovely.
