Golf Club

9-hole Parkland course set in the stunning Somerset countryside

Dear Members,

The winter months are always a challenge with the weather, but for the racecourse and golf course it raises what seems to be the perennial problem of the course crossing.

The weather has been such that we need to close the crossing to vehicles until further notice, to give the woodchip time to dry.  The situation will be under continual review and we will endeavor to return to normal service as soon as we can.  Golfers are requested to park in the Stables Car Park and use the left hand-side of the crossing where the woodchip is drier.  Anyone caught, or reported not be acceding to our request will be putting their membership at risk. 

In the meantime you have complete assurance from the racecourse that we are continuing to look for a satisfactory long term solution for both racecourse and golfers.

I apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Yours faithfully,

 Huw Williams

General Manager
