WHEATHILL GOLF CLUB
Wheathill is an 18 hole parkland course comprising 5607 yards of gently undulating fairways along the River Cary. It is a ‘gem’ set in beautiful Somerset countryside’ just off the B3153 between Lydford on Fosse and Castle Cary. It may not be the longest or toughest of courses but Wheathill, with its unique hazards, offers a real challenge to golfers of all abilities. With 3 PGA Professionals the club has set itself up as a venue that can encourage you to learn, practice and enjoy playing golf and keep fit! As well as the main 18 hole course, the club boasts an 8 hole Academy Course and large driving range.
Wheathill is renowned for it’s friendly atmosphere and affordable fees: Membership (from £300) so you can obtain a handicap, play in competitions and improve your game while meeting new friends and enjoying a healthy walk! Green fees available daily for 18 holes (Pay & Play) £23 adults, £15 juniors. (Currently, visitors are asked to ring the Pro shop on the day they wish to play for any space as existing members may pre-book times in advance) Academy Course day tickets are £7 adults, £5 children and if you simply want to practice your drive, take a bucket of balls (approx 40) at just £4 down to the driving range and bash away!
Coaching is a big part of the club’s service. SkyTrack Launch Monitor, playing lessons on the course and club fitting appointments are just a few of the offerings.
