Overview

The Chipping Sodbury Golf Club has been re-formed two times during its existence and used four different courses until it arrived at the final layout that has been functioning since 1971. This famous course is now known as The New ‘Beaufort’ Course. This club is famous for its territory, which is roughly 105 acres or almost 43 hectares of land, and is a private members club. Moreover, the reason why the Golf Club has perfect conditions for the game is twofold. One of the main advantages is that the ground is always dry, even if is the worst weather possible. And the other advantage is the grounds have a very low population of insects and worms, allowing for the surface to remain perfect. Everything is surrounded by small lakes, trees, and freshly cut grass, which makes the game even more enjoyable.
