The challenge of Cotswold Edge

First opened in 1980, the Cotswold Edge golf course has matured into a first class Par 71 challenge for golfers of all levels.

Popular with visitors throughout the year, it enjoys stunning views from the top of the Cotswold escarpment, looking out over Gloucestershire, and the River Severn, to the Brecon Beacons and the Malvern Hills beyond.

6170 yards, par 71

Measuring just over 6,000 yards in total, the front nine is the more open, traditional parkland layout – with a number of opportunities to use the driver – while the back nine, while shorter, is a good test of every player’s iron play.
