With the ultimate date in the Golfing diary giving everybody golfing fever, our boys are no different! The Ryder Cup is taking over our households and the boys are regularly leaving us at the weekends to play a round or 2.
Our favourite place to play in The Cotswolds is just down the road at Naunton Downs Golf Club. A traditional, 18 hole, 71 par golf course.
It's a challenging course with a mixed variety of holes, with some great par 5's and a particularly stunning par 3 where you play over the valley. The Green Keepers are clearly good at their jobs with the green conditions being very good, creating fast play and adding to the challenge!
You can purchase a membership or play as a visitor for £34 over Friday and the weekend. We usually go for a Twilight visitors round, on a Sunday afternoon for £24. The clubhouse is a great place to grab a bite to eat afterwards particularly on a sunny day. Eating burger and chips and sipping on a cold beer outside whilst looking over the course...Man heaven!
Alternatively we pop down to Shipton Oliffe Golf Course, which is a great practice course as it allows you to play a wide variety of shots making use of all the clubs in your bag. This is unusual for a cheaper practice course and so we would highly recommend it! We say cheaper as it costs £12 for 18 holes on a weekday evening... Giving us the excuse to go for a pint at a The Frogmill afterwards, without getting into trouble with the girls!
