What the club says: The Avening is the original “new” course and was opened in 1975. Designed by Fred Hawtree it has matured into a fine parkland course which offers wonderful Cotswold vistas and a golfing challenge to suit most golfers.

The Cherington, designed by Martin Hawtree - son of Fred - was opened in 1995 and has a links like feel. It has recently become “the course to play”, judging by the requests from visitors and societies.

Beautifully presented parkland challenge

The Avening course was in flawless condition and the back nine really made you think about where you put the ball off the tee. Will definitely play again.

Great Course

Had a fantastic day out there with the BAGS society. Course was in great shape. Greens were tricky, but very smooth and true, just how they should be. Would definitely play there again. Thoroughly recommend.

Easily the best draining course you?ll ever play. Always in excellent condition. Very open but hazards and nasty rough everywhere. Facilities and club house superb

Played the Cherington course @ Minchinhampton. Fairways running fast due to the dry weather and the greens were excellent pace. It looks fairly benign and easy scoring but if you don't stay on the fairway or miss the green count on loosing a shot to get back into position.
Good value for money and a good open style course.

A great venue. Organised a society event and played both courses over two days. Staff were excellent and Simon (event mgr) couldn't have been more helpful. Great food and club house facilities also. Real gem!

Golfshake Team ReviewPlayed both courses in June 2016 having previously played at an early time in the year. All I can say is wow! seeing the course in full condition was impressive with well manicured fairways and excellent true fast greens which were a joy to putt on!

When I played in June the rough was quite punishing but thanfully more so for my playing partner than me but this also did impact the round time slightly.

Both courses are wonderful and I'd highly recommend to anyone looking to play golf in Gloucs. Nice friendly welcome from the staff and facilities excellent.

Welcoming. Outstanding condition. Requires thought, despite relative forgiveness for wayward shots - definite scoring opportunities but being out of position makes very tough to score well. Greens and bunkers excellent.
