What the club says: Set in beautiful Dorset countryside on the eastern edge of town on the main A30, Yeovil Golf Club offers spectacular views with the superb 18 Hole Old Course and the 9 Hole Newton Golf Courses. Both courses are superbly presented and provide a golfing challenge and individual character. For those not so proficient the courses do nothing to discourage the beginner.

Also available at the Academy is the 20 Bay Floodlit Driving Range offering automated Power Tee's or high quality free standing mats. Wander around the well stocked Professional Shop probably the largest in the South West. After your round of golf, enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the Clubhouse which has a fully stocked bar and restaurant offering a first class catering service with comprehensive menu choices.

Great golf in Lockdown

Members only, in two-balls, starting times at 10' intervals. Course in great condition. Some rough not cut (subject to R&A guidelines), bunkers weeded by members. Will be raked by reduced greens staff.
Driving range and clubhouse closed.

Poor Customer relations

Whilst appreciating it has been one of the wettest winters in question, we visited on a sunny bright day, yet still found 12 temp greens, which were the worst I have ever seen, discount, no chance and an attitude of indifference towards us - we won't be back

Course in great condition

Greens in very good condition. Fairways have recovered well after the dry summer. There are a few cracks still, but do not to spoil the course/round.

Played whilst on holiday without enough room in the car for clubs. Very friendly in the pro shop and very quiet on the course. Straying off the fairways often meant losing a ball in the rough but the course was very picturesque and well maintained.

Not as easy as it looks.

This course requires straight driving and accurate seconds to often subtle greens.

My first trip to Yeovil and very impressed. I didn't play well but that wasn't down to the course which was in excellent condition. Superb views from the top of the course and everywhere neat and tidy. I will definitely return.

Excellent, tight and tricky

First time at Yeovil. Fantastic facilities, Driving range behind big pro shop. Greens were good, bunkers were a little bit disappointing. Quite a few dogleg holes which required position from the tee. Not a long course. Amazing Curry afterwards, great value.
