Chipping Sodbury Golf Club

12 miles North East of Bristol (South West England), the course is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty at the foot of the Cotswold hills and adjacent to the historic, characterful 17th century market town of Chipping Sodbury.

Throughout its long and somewhat chequered History, the Club has been twice re-formed and used four different courses on land at The Ridings and Sodbury Common. With two World Wars intervening, Club activities were severely restricted, if not curtailed completely. The 9-hole course in use prior to the 1914-18 War on the Stub Riding was closed on the outbreak of hostilities and the 9-holer of the 1930s was ploughed up and became wheat and potato fields when The Ridings were requisitioned during the 1939-45 War. The post-war Club revival saw the abandonment of the Stub Riding as a golf course in favour of a new one laid out on the Common and it was not until 1971 that members at Chipping Sodbury had the facilities of an 18-hole course for the first time in the Club's history with the opening of the new course on the Mead Riding. 1976 saw the addition of a substantial clubhouse and the 1990's the addition of voluminous lakes and mounds.
