Where2Golf says: 

Orchardleigh Golf Club: In an area of quiet rural countryside, not too far from the stunning city of Bath and the historic towns of Frome and Warminster, this quintessentially English parkland golf course is laid out in the grounds of the beautiful Orchardleigh Estate. Brian Huggett's well designed and well maintained layout provides an enjoyable golfing challenge for players of all abilities.

The front-nine loop of holes occupies flatter and more open terrain to the west of the clubhouse, while the back-nine loop has the greater elevation changes and a slightly more tree-lined feel, especially as you approach the finish. There are plenty of smooth, elliptical bunkers along the fairways and guarding most of the greens. Three small ponds on the front-nine and another alongside the 18th green will also ensure you stay focused and apply good course management during your round.

In these pleasant parkland surroundings, Orchardleigh House can be seen on your left as you play the excellent par-4 1st, while many fine rural views can be enjoyed, especially from the higher elevations on the back-nine. Look out at the plunging par-5 12th hole for the white horse carved onto a distant hill - a reminder of the fascinating ancient history that is all around you in this part of England's wonderful West Country.

Did you know?

The Orchardleigh Estate is centred around a magnificent stately house built in 1856 by Thomas Henry Wyatt for William Duckworth. In 1986 the last male Duckworth descendant died, and work started on redeveloping the house. Although the initial development was stalled for some years, work on the current house (a popular wedding venue) and the golf course resumed and was completed by the mid-1990s. >> The course you play at Orchardleigh was known for some time as the Park Course. Orchardleigh's original plan envisaged two 18-hole courses; the second was marked out to the south of the existing course, but has not yet been built.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
