    Manor House Golf Club, Castle Combe , Wiltshire

    Just come back from an overnighter with 2 days golf at The Manor House, Castle Combe and what an enjoyable two days it was

    went with 7 other members of my society, staying in the Waterfall Lodge, a cabin overlooking the 18th green with 4 twin bedrooms

    A great value package with dinner and B&B was 125 per head

    Course was designed by Peter Alliss & Clive Clark and opened in 1992 and is a beautiful, sometimes stunning place to play golf
    There are several spectacular elevated tees Hope the pics below do it justice

    Sure you didn't camp out ?

    Looks nice, but it is just a parkland course.

    I've seen greens with bunkers in them but never one with a cart path through the middle

    Played it a few times but not for many years. A few decent holes but too many badly designed ones for my liking.

    Used to play there often in my Bowood days... great place for a trip away. Some stunning holes and a couple of oddities. They've changed the order of the holes and added some new tees...

    Several years ago, the 9th played as a par 4 from the bottom of the step slope... too tough and blind so made into a par 3. To accommodate this they turned the old 4th (13 now?) from a great par 3 (green fronted by the brook) to a daft uphill par 4.

    Great atmosphere around the place and fun to play though... in the early 90s Compton Holdings wanted 15k joining fee.... not too many takers

    Scotty putter....

    Too much work, not enough golf!
