What the club says: Set under the back drop of the North Chalk Downs on the edge of Swindon this 9 hole course covers 100 acres of mature parkland. The natural contours of the land, mature trees and hedgerows make this an interesting course with many natural obstacles including water features, also bunkers and hazards

Friendly Course

Basset Down is a 9 Hole course that's not going to be the toughest challenge that you'll ever face. The fairways are mostly wide and welcoming, the bunkers are shallow and often hidden away to the sides of the greens, and if you play well then you're going to score well.

There are a couple of holes that will make you think, like the 2nd where the tee shot has to be in the right spot on the fairway to give you a short shot to the green, or the 7th where your tee shot has to find a gap between trees and bushes. Generally though the course is fairly open and probably better suited to mid and high handicap players.

I didn't see the course at it's best thanks to a lot of rain that's fallen over the weekend, but I was surprised to see that the greens and tees handled it far better than a lot of courses that I've played recently.

I imagine that the course is one that looks a lot better once the trees get some leaves on them, but there are some nice views and I imagine that the greens will be very good once Spring eventually gets here.

I'd just like to add what a pleasant & friendly welcome I got both before and after my round in the clubhouse.

Excellently Kept course, albeit only 9 holes, but the course is expanding by another 4 holes later in the year and another 5 are planned to make it a true 18 hole course.

This is a nine hole course so gets quite congested at busy times, although it is well laid out and a good test for all golfers.
