About The Players Club
Situated just one mile from junction 18 of the M4 (Bristol/Bath) on the outskirts of Bristol bordering Wiltshire and Gloucestershire ‘The Players Club’ is dedicated to the game of golf.
With two 18 hole courses, a 9 hole Par 3 course and together with first class practice facilities it has become home to many golf professionals competing on the European tours.
The Club have staged nine SKY televised EuroPro Tour events, eleven Stage 1 EuroPro Q School Events, seven West Region PGA Championships and the English Over 48’s championship three times, as well as regional finals for many top amateur and professional events.
In 2019 the Club held stage 1 of the European Tour Q-School for the second time.
In 2020 the Club will host the Fore King Golf Tour Champs for the first time – sadly disrupted by Covid
The club opened in 2002 and was quickly ranked 113 in the Golf World 2006 ‘Best Courses in Great Britain and Ireland’. All the courses have been built to the finest specifications with USGA greens, fairway irrigation and a rich landscape with woodland, lakes and gorse all coming into play.
The courses are designed by Adrian Stiff who also designed highly rated neighbours Cumberwell Park and The Kendleshire.
The flagship course, the Codrington course, is designed to test you, thrill you and frustrate you in equal measure, with the Stranahan course requiring positional play and is ideal for higher handicappers, ladies and seniors.
It’s one of Steve’s favourite venues and is sure to host multiple Fore King Golf Events throughout each season.
