The Welcombe Golf Club

What we say

If you enjoy golf and The Bard you’ll be in your element at the Menzies Welcombe Hotel & GC which is literally down the road from William Shakespeare’s home town and birthplace.

The course and hotel sits in 157 acres of wonderful rolling parkland, the former having successfully staged the European Seniors Tour Ryder Cup event just over a decade ago.

The undulating nature of the layout means you’re afforded panoramic views from several elevated tees while being guaranteed to play a number of shots from dubious sloping lies.

Pick of the holes? A tough call but the seriously downhill par-4 12th gives you a chance of finding the green while the penultimate hole is a classy right dogleg par-4 with the tee sitting next to the hotel.

Staying at the on-site Jacobean-style mansion hotel (built in 1866) is a real treat – you can either unwind by the roaring log fire in the striking oak panelled lounge or in the luxury new spa.

Test your skills on the course that played host to the European Seniors Tour Ryder Event in 1998. With 157 acres of magnificent countryside all around and the spectacular Jacobean style hotel overlooking the seventeenth tee, the Menzies Welcombe golf course provides a truly exhilarating experience.

This championship course is an 18-hole par 70. And from your first drive down the wonderful fairways, you'll discover playing here is a rather unique experience. At 6288 yards, the Menzies Welcombe golf course is deceptively long. It's also been designed to include three par five and five par three holes. Come and see it for yourself.
