    Bowood House is rather good! Was a popular 'treat' while working in Swindon.

    Manor House also has a good reputation - though apparently rather hilly! I haven't personally 'had the pleasure'.

    Manor House is OK but not memorable (apart from the hills)

    Henbury and Filton are nice courses and not far from the M4/M5 interchange at Almondsbury Bristol.

    We play our home games at Filton and it is a lovely little course, usually quiet in the early afternoon. No tee bookings, just give them a call to see if any societies etc
