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.
