“Having covered golf around the world for more than 35 years and been privileged to play some of the really great courses in many different countries, I was delighted to find Wincanton’s course close to where I now live. Extremely well maintained – you can play either 9 or 18 holes with a deal of enjoyment. Try it once and you will want to play there often.”
