Bath Golf Club

Bath Golf Club is one of England's oldest and finest inland courses and considered the premier golf club in Bath and North East Somerset and is one of the driest and 'Weatherproof' courses in the west country. Established in 1880 it quickly earned and has kept its reputation as a welcoming club with a thought-provoking course and stunning views.

Affectionately known as "Sham Castle" by the locals, the course earned its nick-name from the neighbouring architectural folly Sham Castle. The 'castle' stands in a field adjoining the course and although appearing to be the entrance gate to an impressive baronial hall, is in fact nothing more than a single wall. Built during Bath's 18th century heyday at the request of seriously wealthy Ralph Allen, it was built with his own Bath stone in order, as he himself wrote, "to charm all visitors to Bath".
