Higher Clatcombe, Sherborne, Dorset, DT9 4RN

The Golf Course

We have a beautiful, mature 18-hole parkland course with specimen trees and stunning views over Somerset and the Blackmore Vale. Just over 6,400 yards from the white tees and set out over undulating terrain, our course will test all departments of your game without the need of big hitting from the tees. Good course management combined with sound club selection are the secrets of success at Sherborne. Look at our course videos or follow the individual hole links for more information.

Much of the course was designed by the renowned Open winner and inter-war course architect James Braid and the Club is a member of the Braid Association. The bush in the middle of the 5th fairway is known as “Braid’s Bush” and may challenge your second shot at that hole. To find out more about how our club and course have developed since 1894, follow this History link.
