A word from Lord Landsdowne…

Since that memorable occasion on opening the course on a spring day in May 1982, what was then uninspiring farmland has now evolved into one of the great courses of the South West. None of this could have happened without a supportive membership. To commemorate these past three decades we have designed a bag tag for current members, which I hope you will proudly display. Please remember to collect your tag from the Pro Shop when you are next playing from the 1st September.

Kind regards,

Charlie Lansdowne.

Celebrating 30 years of Bowood Golf

Thirty years ago, the inspired decision was made to create an 18-hole golf course on the Bowood Estate.

It’s hard to imagine today when there are many golf courses embedded in our countryside, but in the 1990’s it was a courageous decision to expand on Bowood’s hospitality and transform agricultural land into a leading golf course…



As part of our club’s commitment to protecting the welfare of all of its members and visitors, the club has been working in conjunction with England Golf to achieve the SafeGolf accreditation. The SafeGolf accreditation process is designed to enable clubs to ensure they are delivering a safe environment for the sport to be played in.

As part of this process, we have updated our club safeguarding policies and we are required to share these with you. The policies can be found by clicking the below links and we strongly encourage you to familiarise yourself with them.
We have also recruited a Club Welfare Officer, Jason Roberts, who is available to support you or discuss any concerns that you may have at any time. If you have any questions or you’d like to report a concern you can contact Jason by email at
