The region’s top championship course designed by Dave Thomas was recently rated ‘5 Stars- Brilliant’ by Today’s Golfer Undercover Review Team. Measuring 7,317 yards from the championship tees and always superbly presented the course provides a great day out for both scratch and occasional golfers. The former estate farmhouse, dating from the 18th century, has been lovingly converted into a superb Clubhouse with exceptional facilities and an informal, relaxed atmosphere.

Attending a charity lunch each month at Bowood is generally enjoyable and very informative with good food to sample. Now since the appointment of the new manager Marc together with an excellent chef the lunches have become the hot topic!! Our Parma Ham covered Hake sitting on butternut squash purée with coconut served with broccoli was quite the best lunch... More

We played here yesterday after wanting to play for absolutely ages. The course is absolutely beautiful but at 6000 yards a word of warning to any lady golfers - it is brutal!!! You need a great drive followed by an amazing 2nd shot which I didn't have. Par 3's are 200 yards long surrounded by bunkers. The rain pounded down... More

Spent a lovely few hours in the library with friends having a cream tea, looking out onto the golf course and woodland you couldn't ask for nicer scenery, the hotel is very clean and comfortable and a nice atmosphere to sit and enjoy the views, it was let down by the traditional cream tea we ordered, it came with 3...

Great venue, good food, friendly staff. They even let me have a play on a golf buggy! We were in amongst the golfers but they were tolerant of us as we were of their tailored shorts!

3rd time played here, course is nicely laid out, suits a good driver of ball and a good second shot is needed. I used most of clubs in my bag. Some good dog legs where you can try and fade draw the ball. Greens were really quick and took some reading. Our 2 ball was held up by 2 lots... More

The golf course is a great challenge well presented, and the greens are consistant, I would adise the use of a buggy or electric trolly if you are not fully fit, it is deceptively hilly, and even using an electric trolly can be quite tiring. Would like to play this course again now I know its layout, accuracy is a... More

The location and grounds are stunning and the gardens are beautiful and well maintained. The pool area and spa was spotlessly clean with good facilities. You can sit on a lounger overlooking part of the golf course and the driving range and there we saw a herd of deer as well as rabbits and geese with their young so all... More

Beautifully cooked and served food, with a personal touch from the staff. The menu isn't extensive but has enough choice for most people. When they ehard it was our anniversary they decorated my dessert plate with a greeting - lovely touch.
