  • History of Cirencester History of Cirencester Golf started near Cirencester in 1893 in some old pastures belonging to Earl Bathurst near Park Corner, Sapperton.

    The decision by several prominent men to form a golf club was taken on the 30th October 1893 in a solicitors offi ce and the Earl Bathurst was elected the fi rst President. The nearby farmhouse was rented and used as a clubhouse.

    However, there were diffi culties in keeping the course playable in the summer months and grass cutting was always a problem and expensive.

    In 1909, it was decided to look for suitable land on which to develop a new golf course and land at Baunton/Bagendon was leased or purchased from various landowners.


    Golf Club est 1910

  • This new course, situated on a rolling plateau where the eastern slopes of the Cotswolds die away to the plain was designed by James Braid and a new clubhouse was built and both offi cially opened for play on May 5th 1910 with an exhibition match. This was between James Braid and Harry Vardon, both of whom were Open Champions and Braid won his last Open a few weeks later.

    There were problems during both World War years but, due to the endeavours of dedicated members, the course continued to be played although some land was given up temporarily for War agricultural purposes. Three holes were lost in 1995 due to the construction of the Cirencester by-pass but fortunately land at Baunton Bank was able to be purchased and new holes constructed which enabled the club to sur-vive as an 18 hole course. Land was also purchased to construct a 6 hole academy practice area and a further plot for a driving range.

  • Hole OneHole One

    An inviting fi rst tee shot uphill to a generous fairway leaves a short iron left for your second shot.

    However, be mindful of leaving your ball below the hole on this deceptively sloping green, a putt from above the hole will be tough to keep on the putting surface!

  • Hole TwoHole Two

    A tricky par 3 so early on in your round.

    The correct club selection is a must to fi nd the correct tier of this two-tiered green and also avoid the bunkers that surround and the out of bounds that aligns the right side of this hole.

    Sponsored by - Ed Goodwin - 11

  • Hole Th reeHole Th reeA drive over the marker post can leave anything from a fairway wood to a short iron for your second shot on this rolling downhill par 5.

    If the two well placed greenside bunkers can be avoided then birdie or better maybe on the cards but correct club selection may prove a test

    Hole Four

  • Hole FourHole Four

    A true gem of a par 4, a straight drive needed through the valley will leave a testing second shot to a green that slopes severely from back to front.

    The correct club choice must be made for the second shot which is made doubly diffi cult by the swirling wind in the valley another green where putting from above the hole could prove treacherous

  • Hole FiveHole Five

    A test of both skill and stamina, this uphill par 4 plays longer than its yardage.

    The second shot is key, played up the hill to a very shallow green, take one more club and allow the bank behind the green to feed your ball back onto the putting surface

    Hole Six

  • Hole SixHole Six

    Do not be deceived by this holes stroke index, the tee shot is best placed up the right hand side to leave a clear shot into a narrow, well bunkered green.

    With this green measuring 33 yards in length a miss judged approach shot could make two putting a challenge

  • Hole SevenHole Seven

    One of the tightest driving holes on the golf course, trees line both sides of the fairway and a fairway bunker lies in wait to catch out the bigger hitters.

    The green is well guarded by deep menacing bunkers and out of bounds looms tight behind the green.

    Hole Eight

  • Hole EightHole Eight

    A hole that requires some thought, the fairway bottle necks tightly at 250 yards with out of bounds lining the left hand side.

    A shorter tee shot will leave a mid iron for the second shot, if aggressive off the tee a short pitch for the second shot awaits and a possible birdie opportunity

    Sponsored by - Motortech (Cirencester) Ltd - 17

  • Hole NineHole Nine

    The longest par 3 on the golf course, with out of bounds lining the left side and bunkers to the right the only way to play safe is to play short and chip up this deep green.

    Even the longer hitters will be hitting a lot of club into this par 3 making it a tough challenge for all
