1. Bristol & Clifton
Just five miles away lies Bristol & Clifton, a beautifully mature and undulating parkland layout established in 1891, a few minutes’ drive from the city’s famous Clifton Suspension Bridge. The course has long been considered one of the very best in the area and with rounds priced from £55 per person, it offers excellent value for money.

2. The Kendleshire
Another stunning parkland layout boasting 27 holes, The Kendleshire, is nestled in the Frome Valley just nine miles from The Bristol. A great test of golf with plenty of water hazards set around memorable holes, this club is known for its warm welcome and the great value it offers visitors (green fees from £42).

Alternatively, there’s a gem of a seaside course 20-odd miles away at Weston-super-Mare that provides panoramic views over the Bristol Channel towards Wales. Established in 1892 and famously redesigned by the prominent golf architect, Alistair Mackenzie, this testy little layout is renowned for its superb greens, rolling fairways and challenging wind conditions. At just £40 per round during the week, it’s a links course worth seeking out.

4. Burnham & Berrow
However, the must-play course in the region is Burnham & Berrow (32 miles away), which is one of England’s most highly-rated championship links that offers a superb challenge to golfers of all abilities. Founded in 1890, the layout is particularly noted for its distinct sand hills that form stubborn, natural obstacles alongside the pesky buckthorn, as well as for its backdrop of dramatic sand dunes and picturesque North Atlantic coastline. Green fees start from £130, reflecting the quality and high esteem in which the club is held.
After a round at any of these courses, a drink on the terrace of The Bristol’s Shore Café Bar comes highly recommended. After all, you’ve earned it!
