The Course

Set under the backdrop of the North Chalk Down on the outskirts of Swindon, this 9 hole, 3,170 yard course (par 72 for 18 holes) sits on 100 acres of mature parkland and offers something for every golfer.

A combination of the natural contours of the land, mature trees, hedgerows and water features make the 9 holes an interesting course with a variety of obstacles to keep you on your toes.

Having matured beautifully since opening in 2005, the golf course was designed to offer a reasonable challenge to experienced and seasoned golfers, whilst offering a fair and an encouraging layout to the less experienced player.

Plans For Additional Holes

With the construction of another next 9 holes well underway, we’re looking into the future. When complete, the course will spread out over 200 acres and the yardage of the course will be a Championship length of 6,452 yards, par 71.

This will be made up of three par fives, eleven par fours, and four par threes.

6th hole at Bassett Down

The 6th hole is a tricky par four with thought required from the tee as it has a slight right to left dogleg.  There is a pond running across the width of the hole at 225 yards driving distance with trees bordering and narrowing the hole dramatically.

The green is 48 yards long and kidney shaped. The green itself banks sharply to the left, right and at the back. 

Any shot a little right or left will leave the player with the option of either laying up short of the pond that guards the green or gambling with a shot over the trees to a two tier green.

A good birdie chance or a card wrecker.

hole 3 at bassett down

One of the best holes on the course, the 3rd is a short but tricky par 4 dog legging slightly to the left. With the fairway sloping from right to left, a large lake running along the left side and out of bounds to the right your tee shot needs to be well placed.

From 120 yards things heat up with the fairway narrowing severely and undulations protecting a long narrow 45 degree angled green. Any long hitters hoping to cut the corner will find a deep gully to the side of the green.
