Churchill & Blakedown Golf Club offers a wide variety of golfing opportunities for men of all ages and abilities – whether you warrant a place in the Scratch Team, the Octogenarians Cup or simply want a quiet game with your regular fourball, there’s something for everyone.
For the competitive golfer we hold medal and stableford qualifying events each month throughout the year. There is no starting sheet for any of these – just turn up and play, you’re always made welcome by our members. During the Winter we have a well-supported winter league pairs competition as well as a pairs foursomes matchplay knock out, The Harborough Cup. During the warmer summer months we additionally hold singles, pairs and mixed matchplay events.
For the lover of team golf we play friendly B team fixtures against other local clubs as well as more serious fixtures in the Midlands Scratch League and the Worcestershire Handicap League. We have a thriving Seniors section too which enjoys its calendar of fixtures against senior sections of local clubs as well as internal singles and pairs competitions. The Seniors get together most Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.
Twice a year, invariably on the weekend the clocks change, we hold our Rabbits & Tigers match with a dinner to follow the next day. The event is always well supported with a rightful focus on good fun and friendship.
But if organised golf is not your thing, that’s fine too. Many people are more than content to have a casual game with old friends to suit themselves. Again, with no starting sheets, it’s the easiest thing in the world to just turn up and play. We’re not interested in selling spare capacity to all comers – we put our members and their needs first. Roll ups, where you just turn up and join others to play, occur on numerous occasions during the week and weekends. These are an excellent way for new members to integrate.
If you are new to golf you will be well catered for. Angus Hoare, our Head Professional, is renowned as a truly talented and inspiring coach and together with the state of the art Swing Studio, no learner could get off to a better start. When you are ready to take part in the on-course activities you will find many willing to welcome you to our wonderful game and to ensure your full integration into the Club.
On summer evenings and most weekend afternoons, the course is quiet and perfect for a quick 18 or 9 holes with a drink afterwards on our patio terrace. In all of Worcestershire there are no finer views, nor a better place to be.
Come and visit Churchill & Blakedown Golf club – we don’t just think you’ll like it, we know you will.
