There have been golf holes laid out on the site at Upavon since 1912 when the area was used for recreation by the newly-formed Royal Flying Corps just before the First World War. In 1918 the Royal Flying Corps evolved into the Royal Air Force who occupied Upavon Aerodrome Station for 75 years. By the time the RAF vacated the site in 1993, the layout of 10 greens and 18 tees were well established.PutUpavon Golf Club into our Upavon trip site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
The departure of the RAF from the base at Upavon saw significant changes take place. The club became a civilian members club, and acquired some additional 40 acres of land adjacent to the western boundary, enabling the construction of additional holes. These were brought into play in May 1997, forming an 18-hole, par 71 layout of 6402 yards.
With small, well guarded greens and sloping fairways, Richard Blake, the Course Designer, has set a challenge for all. There are many outstanding holes, including the monstrous 13th which, at 608 yards, is one of the longest in the country.
The stunning views over the vale of Pewsey ( including the Alton Barnes White Horse ) are complemented by several species of uncommon flowers including burnt tip, green winged and pyramid orchids. The downland course is also home to skylarks, partridge - both English and French - and quail. Birds of prey sharing this hunting ground include kestrels, barn and little owls and buzzards.
The Club and Wiltshire Wildlife have worked closely together to ensure that nature and golfers can co-exist amicably at Upavon. With spectacular views, you have a superb downland location, offering a true test of golf.
