  • When I joined the club I did not know one single member. Within the first week I had played in mid-week and weekend roll up 'Fiddles', some with up to 40 entries. I found the club extremely welcoming, very easy to meet other members and get a game. So much so that after month I felt more like 'Old School Member' than 'New Boy'. The course has completed the picture and been a great challenge. It plays different every time you get out there and can be easy on you or pretty tough but always enjoyable.

  • We played the course on 20th August 2015 and it was an absolute pleasure to play. Darren the professional was outstanding, he made us feel valued and welcome. This undiluted James Braid course is fantastic, there is so much of his handy work still intact, the location of the greens making use of the land, the bunkering, the way the course flows making use of the spectacular views, brilliant. If you have not played Dunstable Downs please try to, you will not be disappointed it’s wonderful.

  • Played Dunstable Downs Ladies Open July 2015; a challenging course with lovely views, excellent greens, well maintained. Greeted by friendly lady members; the day was well organized ending with good food. Since joining the club, we have been overwhelmed with warmth and friendliness by members and staff which far exceeds our expectations which has helped us to settle in. The wide range of competitions present fantastic opportunities to play with golfers of varying handicaps. This is conducive in our quest to improve our game. To put it simple - We’re loving it!

Dunstable Downs Golf Club

At Dunstable Downs Golf Club we can offer golf almost 365 days a year. Unlike many other local courses, our fantastically draining surfaces mean we are rarely closed for saturated ground and trolley bans are non-existent.

We do not operate a tee booking system so you can play when it suits you.
With a golfing calendar that allows for a full competition schedule whilst still affording time for social golf. Excellent coaching is available from our PGA coaching team.

Memberships are not as expensive as you may think and are available at affordable monthly rates. Reciprocal golf is available at hundreds of courses both in the UK and abroad so that membership here offers so much more.

Dunstable Downs Golf Club

Founded in 1906 the current course was designed by the great course architect James Braid in 1931 and whilst the route has changed since the relocation of the clubhouse the holes are as Braid designed, presenting a challenge for both amateurs and professionals alike.

At 800ft above sea level, the course offers fantastic views over the Downs and on into Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire.

With fescue dominated fairways, the perfect lie is awaiting your drive for that sublime approach to a green that will require your full attention if you want to sink that crucial putt.
