What we say
Cleeve Hill Golf Club is a magnificent heath land golf course located in an area of outstanding natural beauty. From a commanding position in the Cotswolds, breathtaking views are available over an area taking in the Forest of Dean, Severn Vale, the Malverns - and beyond to the Black Mountains and the Brecons.
Set in 1,000 acres of Cleeve Common, the truly awesome vistas from the golf course embrace 10,000 years of human occupation - with prehistoric and Roman settlements punctuating a landscape rich in wild flowers. Rare orchids, the Roman snail and various species of butterfly bring added fascination to the scene. For golfers about their business, the setting is idyllic, inspiring and refreshing.

I have played this course about 200 times so know it fairly well. The course itself is very open and dependent on the weather can either be fairly easy or very tough. It can get very windy up on the highest point of the cotswolds. The positives 1) great value for money 2) each hole needs to be thought about and you can use the contours of the land well 3) Great views - Fantastic on a sunny day - can see the severn bridge. 4) never plays the same twice - a challenge in any weather 5) is often open when courses on lower ground is closed. 6) course generally in good condition The negatives I would state are 1) on a very windy or wet day it is very difficult and can be unpleasant to some! 2) sheep can often be roaming the course and their dung can get everywhere! 3) lies are generally very bare so be careful not to thin shots 4) lack of any real rough means you can be quite wayward and not really punished for it. 5) bunkers are very difficult and have little sand in them so playing a regular bunker shot is pretty much impossible. 6) sometimes very poor golfers on the course - hackers in jeans etc..
