Golf Courses near the Cotswold Water Park


There is so much to do in and around the Cotswold Water Park, from walking and cycling on the miles of trails, taking to the water for a variety of  water sports, or simply relaxing with a good book, as you enjoy the wonderful wildlife and peace and quiet.  If you have an avid golfer among your party, you will be pleased to hear there is plenty to keep them happy too!

We are based in an enviable location surrounded by several different golf courses, all offering a great round of golf in a variety of stunning locations.

Here’s just a few of the Cotswolds golf courses our team of golf aficionado’s recommend.

South Cerney Golf Course

From just £16 a round, the South Cerney Golf Course offers players an enjoyable Pay & Play round of 18 holes. Consisting of a flat and forgiving course, it attracts many golfers (both on holiday and living locally) to return time and time again.

The comfortable and stylish clubhouse offers visitors a warm welcome from friendly helpful staff, together with some gorgeous food being served (do check out their menu).

Whether you’re a golf pro or just starting out, South Cerney’s golf course is one not to be missed. For golfing beginners there is also the opportunity to pick up useful tips from the club’s professional golf coaches.

With a pro shop on hand in case you’ve forgotten anything, plus 2 driving ranges (both outdoor and indoor) you’ll have plenty of time to improve your game before hitting the fairways!

Cirencester Golf Club

Cirencester Golf Club is a superb club offering players a challenging woodland course with some hard, fast, and true greens kept in 5-star condition.  We highly recommend you try this course.  It has magnificent views but, from experience, it can look a bit intimidating to the occasional golfer.

There’s a driving range to help you warm up and a bar in the clubhouse to grab a drink afterwards whether congratulations or commiserations are the order of the day!

The staff in the brilliant clubhouse and well stocked pro shop are all very friendly and there’s a great menu to choose from too in the bar (note there is a dress code).  We’d certainly put this golf course near Cirencester on your to do list next time you’re staying in the Cotswold Water Park.

Westonbirt Golf Club

We love Westonbirt’s Golf course, we really do! Many say it’s a course ONLY for beginners (there are no bunkers or water hazards to trip you up), but it can offer an experienced player some real challenges at times too. Players may find the fairways narrow in places, so accuracy is required.

The course is set in the grounds of Westonbirt School, within a scenic parkland surrounded by trees. With two 200-yard holes and the rest being a mix of par 3’s and 4’s there is something for everyone.  You can pay for 9 holes or 18 (as there are double tees on all holes).

It’s a reasonably priced round of golf in our opinion, with plenty of trees to catch you out.  You do need to be mindful of the rough, there’s lots of long grass which can be very time consuming to lose your ball in!

There is an occasional burger van, but there are no other facilities, so we recommend you take some snacks and drinks just in case.

Word of warning, if you are playing in the Autumn or Winter and it’s been raining you may want to take a stout pair of golf shoes as the course can get rather muddy and water sodden in places. All in all, a great small and scenic golf course that’s suitable for everyone.

Do note for Pay and Play visitors you will need to book and pay online in advance:
