Located on the north facing slope of the Mendips at an elevation of almost 1,000ft the Mendip Golf Club is ideally situated in the country just 15 miles south-west of Bath and 18 miles south of Bristol and is widely regarded as one of the best golf courses in Somerset. The Mendip Golf Club has, from its early beginnings as a nine hole course, been continuously improved over the years into the superb eighteen hole par 71 course that it is today. With its fairways of springy downland turf, Mendip Golf Club boasts lies that some golfers can only dream about. The excellent greens are maintained to an exceptionally high standard many having pronounced borrows which need careful reading. The addition of the Academy Course in 2013 provides the ideal place for newcomers to learn golf or existing golfers to develop their skills. Visitors to this splendid Somerset golf course can enjoy unparalleled views over seven counties, including the mountains of Wales, the spectacular King Arthur's Vale of Avalon, the mysterious Glastonbury Tor and across to Bridgwater Bay and Exmoor. Over the years Mendip Golf Club has received many accolades in national golfing titles and guides. It is worthy of the "hidden gem" description given by Golf Monthly Magazine - "a golf course not to miss".
