Golf at Ashton Court Estate

Play golf at Ashton Court Estate, including times, prices and hire fees.

Ashton Court golf course

Ashton Court Estate has two 18-hole par 3 golf courses: the Plateau Course and the Lodge Course. You can 'pay and play' on both courses, and hire golf clubs and equipment. It’s free to park your car while you play golf.

Course improvements and changes

We recently ran a consultation that showed people would like to see more choice of activities on the course combined with improved quality and maintenance. As a result we are splitting the current 36 golf course in to a:

  • nine hole flat accessible course suitable for families and accessible for those who are less mobile
  • nine hole hilly course for players who would like more of a challenge
  • nine hole FootGolf course:  launch weekend Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July
  • nine hole disc (frisbee) golf course: coming autumn 2018

By reducing the current golf courses to nine holes each we will be able to target resources at improving the quality of the greens and install new artificial tees. The FootGolf and disc golf courses will be installed on the remaining greens from the current courses.

FootGolf

FootGolf is a family game where players kick a football into a golf cup in as few shots as possible. It follows golf's scoring system where the lowest individual or team score is the winner. 

Join us for the big launch on Saturday 30 June and Sunday 1 July where you'll be able to play a free game of FootGolf.

Russell Osman, ex professional footballer will open the launch on the Saturday.
