Wincanton Racecourse’s golf course, set in the middle of the track, is offering a free day of golf to all on Saturday, May 25, with FREE professional lessons available during the middle of the day.
With its wonderful views over Somerset and Dorset, and its greens, fairways, tees and bunkers diligently cared for by a dedicated team of groundstaff, it is popular with both beginners and experienced players alike.
General manager Huw Williams said: “Our golf course is a bit of a hidden gem in the Somerset countryside but once golfers come along they’re smitten. The views are wonderful, and it’s a great place to play, whether you want to spend a few hours here, or have a quick round to get the shoulder blades moving.”
The 9-hole course, doubled up to 18 and par 70, has developed into an excellent test of golf for all levels of ability, since opening in 1994. Bushes, bunkers and an extra nine tee off areas have been introduced, as well as a well-stocked pro shop, catering for all standards of golfers and a cafeteria situated in the picturesque historical barn within the racecourse boundaries.
The course is open all year round, so whether you want to fit in nine holes, or play a full round of 18, Wincanton Golf Course is perfect to fit into any lifestyle whatever the time of year.
Golf lessons are available via PGA Golf Professional every week and membership is available for players wishing to obtain a handicap and play in competitions.
Golf societies are also welcome and catered for year round.
