Wincanton Racecourse’s golf course, set in the middle of the track, is offering a free round of golf for any delegate attending a conference or event, excluding racedays.
With its wonderful views over Somerset and Dorset, and its greens, fairways, tees and bunkers diligently cared for by a dedicated team of groundstaff, it is popular with both beginners and experienced players alike.
The 9-hole course, doubled up to 18 and par 70, has developed into an excellent test of golf for all levels of ability, since opening in 1994. Bushes, bunkers and an extra nine tee off areas have been introduced, as well as a well-stocked pro shop, catering for all standards of golfers and a cafeteria situated in the picturesque historical barn within the racecourse boundaries.
The course is open all year round, so whether you want to fit in nine holes, or play a full round of 18, Wincanton Golf Course is perfect to fit into any lifestyle whatever the time of year.
General manager Huw Williams said: “It’s a bit of a hidden gem in the Somerset countryside but once golfers come along they’re smitten. The views are wonderful, and it’s a great place to play, whether you want to spend a few hours here, or have a quick round to get the shoulder blades moving!”
Golf lessons are available via PGA Golf Professional and membership is available for players wishing to obtain a handicap and play in competitions.
Golf societies are also welcome and catered for. Accommodation available above the golf club house and can help organise golf breaks/holidays.
