Chris and Adrian James established the Cumberwell Park Golf Club after they decided to convert their former farmland into a golf course during the boom times of the heady early 1990s. They commissioned a little-known West Country architect called Adrian Stiff to design Cumberwell Park and it’s one of his earliest and finest creations.  

The course opened for play in 1994 and it’s routed over undulating ground that includes a number of manmade lakes and natural ponds while skirting around more than 30 acres of ancient woodland. 

A further nine holes were added in 1999 and a final nine were added in 2007. All four nine hole loops at Cumberwell Park return to the comfortable clubhouse which was built in the style of a traditional Wiltshire barn.  

The original Cumberwell Park course comprises of the Red and Yellow nines while the newer loops are known as the Blue and the Orange.

Reviews for Cumberwell Park (Red & Yellow)

Av. Reviewers Score:
Description: Patience is key to scoring well at Cumberwell Park Golf Club. There's a couple of extremely testing par fives and a number of well designed short holes. Rating: 5 out of 6 Reviews: 6

Very friendly club, they love their golf here and when we turned up to play on the county card they said we could play 36 holes for the green fee of £20, WOW!! how many clubs do that, all 4 nines were excellent, our favourite was the Orange an excellent attempt at a links design, but there was huge variety all round, I'd have to say the best in Wiltshire.

After only taking up golf seriously several months ago, I decided I join Cumberwell due to its very reasonable rates. 36 holes with a four tee start make tee times very flexible. Tee boxes and fairways are incredibly well maintained and greens run very smoothly. (Not the quickest, making it easier for the higher handicap). The Red and Yellow course provide a stern test for any handicapper. Stand out holes for me include holes 3,8,13,16. The only criticism I have is that there tends to be a lot of divots on the fairways which can prove to be annoying, especially when you have split the fairway with your tee shot. Although the Blue and Yellow are my favourite, all courses provide an excellent test of your golf ability. A real must play if you are in the Wilts area.

I played the Red and Yellow course and I was really impressed. The course was well laid out and there was always something to keep your interest. They have integrated the course well into the landscape and the use of water features has brought a nice little challenge on some of the par 3s. Rather unusually for me I was driving pretty well on the day I played and it did make it possible to post a good score, but I think there are enough challenges to keep you on your toes if you're not on your A game. The facilities are good and I would say it's definitely worth a game if you're in the area. If you're in Wiltshire and looking for a round of golf I would probably play the Manor House Golf Club first but Cumberwell Park would probably be next on my list if you cant get a tee there. There's a friendly atmosphere - and it certainly has a lot more character than you would expect from a course that is still relatively young.

Since the last review noted in 2005, Cumberwell Park has basically become probably the best "new" course for many many miles. At the moment, it has 27 holes, the latest nine being a superb undulating layout with no two holes being the same, but work is afoot on yet another nine that will thence make it one of the the best 36 holers in the West. On top of the superb course, the owners have very sensibly kept their feet on the ground and despite having an enormous and very attractive local stone clubhouse, they have kept the prices to a very re-alistic leval. Given a few years, I would imagine that this club could be worthy of a shout for the top 100 - the course, the ambiance, the welcome, all combine to make it a very enjoyable visit

Tough modern course which is suitable for all levels but will keep the lower handicapper interested. Up there with nearby Bowood but not quite as good in my view.

This is a very nice parkland course that allows for a good score even if you havn't brought your 'A' game although you're going to have to use your head a bit. The fairways are generous but occasionally you need to think before pulling out the driver. With lots of lakes and ponds, especially on their blue course, it is a great visual experience but apart from hole 26, they don't come into play too much. It's a comfortable 6900 yards from the back tees and much easier from the forward ones and there is lots of room, not only on the individual holes but also in terms of space between them. The condition was excellent on the day we played but a lack of fairway irrigation means that things can get a bit bouncy during a drought. At thirty odd quid for a round, this is very good value for money and well worth a visit. It's maybe not quite up to the quality of its neighbour Bowood but it certainly is that sort course but without the same built in ambience. Give it a go, you'll enjoy it.
