Welcome to Dunstable Downs Golf Club

[status message will show here]

Visitors are always welcome here at Dunstable Downs Golf Club, where you’ll find a warm and friendly welcome to one of the best courses in the region.

A classic downland course, we can offer golf almost 365 days a year and our spacious clubhouse can cater for all your social events.


  • Just a quick thank you for allowing us to play your excellent course last week. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and were particularly impressed with the hospitality shown to us by your members.

  • On behalf of the Bedfordshire Golf Captains I would like to thank you and your club for allowing us to hold our match against the Gloucestershire Captains on your course last Thursday.
    Your course was,as always, in first class condition and it all added up to a very enjoyable day for all of our players and guests; even if the result wasn't quite what I had hoped for.

    The lunch and evening meal were excellent and very much appreciated, just as we have come to expect over the years of visiting your course and clubhouse. Our guests were particularly pleased with the course as they seemed to play it better than we did and all of our team had played it number of times over the years and we couldn't even blame the weather.

    All your staff were very efficient and extremely courteous which made a most enjoyable day for us all.

  • Just to let you know we had a great day on the Downs and our customers thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Obviously a Buttle Golf Day brings with it fantastic weather and we were once again able to sit on the balcony for the after golf presentations.

    The course was in great condition (so well done to the green staff) and once again the Curry was such a big hit!!  I think next year we might as well just do a Curry theme. We also had a first for our Golf Day:  A hole in one on the second !!!!

    Please pass my thanks to all the staff for looking after us so well.

  • Would you please convey my sincere thanks to all your staff for a superb evening. The food was excellent, lots of compliments. Everyone was very accommodating from start to finish. So helpful and friendly. It certainly made things easier for me. Good food. Good service and in a lovely venue. Thankyou from all at Studham Tennis Club.


Dunstable Downs Golf Club

At Dunstable Downs Golf Club, unlike many other local courses, our fantastically draining surfaces mean we are rarely closed for saturated ground and trolley bans are non-existent.

There is no tee booking here so you can play when it suits you.

You can join in numerous men's and women's "roll-ups" every day of the week!

The golfing calendar allows you 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. We offer discounted memberships up to age 40. Reciprocal golf is available at hundreds of courses both in the UK and abroad so that membership here offers so much more.

You will discover a course designed by the great course architect James Braid 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.

Located on the same road as the National Trust Gateway Centre we are easy to find. Click here for a map

At 800ft above sea level on the Chiltern Hills we are one of the highest inland courses in the UK with fantastic views over the Downs and on into Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire beyond.
