The Hollows & Ruffet Courses were opened in the summer of 1997 to much acclaim. Designed by Adrian Stiff, the courses were set into the rolling Frome valley with plenty of water and a thrilling combination of pretty holes from the forgiving to the downright challenging. In the summer of 2002 the two courses were joined by the Badminton Course, designed by Peter McEvoy to follow the same lines but with his very own twist.

Each of the courses has its own stand-out holes, and when played in any combination offer the visiting golfer just as much enjoyment as the home one. The white tees provide a very stern test, however from the yellow posts there are plenty of pars and birdies to be had.

As a member you are able to choose which courses you would like to play, up to 9 days in advance. Whichever you choose, you are sure to encounter your fair share of water. The 4th and 9th highlight the Hollows Course, with 11 and 16 certain to provide fun on the Ruffet. The Badminton Course has the formidable 21st and 27th, bound to raise your heart rate.

All of the greens are built to USPGA standard and are the foundation of the course’s reputation, and as such the club has always had a soft spikes only policy. This has paid rich dividends as far as maintaining the quality of the putting surfaces.

Regular visits by the County & England players and leading professionals, as well as the hosting of major competitions such as the County Championships in 2008 and the Reid Trophy in 2009, speak volumes for the standard of the facilities.
