Chipping Sodbury Golf Club can trace its origins back to 1905, with a 9-hole layout inaugurated on the Stub Riding the following year. The course didn’t reopen after the end of World War I and it took until 1933 for local golfers to show enough interest in bringing it back into play.

Six years later, World War II intervened and the Ridings were requisitioned for agricultural use, forcing the club into hibernation once again. A decade passed after the war ended before another 9-hole course was built on Sodbury Common and the club reinstituted.

A decision was then taken to move to Mead Riding, which would allow an 18-hole course to be constructed. Fred Hawtree was engaged to design the new layout and it duly opened to an expectant membership on 26th June 1971, with the clubhouse following five years later.

Today, the course measures 6,860 yards from the back tees, playing to a par of 72. Highlight holes include the first of the par fives at the 529-yard 5th, the only par three on the back nine at the 169-yard 12th, and the left doglegging 528-yard 18th, which plays to a long, angled home green.
