Visiting The Farm
Green Fees and Information
The renowned Boulcott's Farm Heritage golf course is set in park-like surrounds and provides a challenge for all golfers.  It rewards good shots and can be very unforgiving on any errant ones.  The large, sand based greens are subtlety contoured and run fast and true.  Most greens are guarded by generous sand bunkers, grass knolls and hollows which add to the challenge for your approach shots.   The course is fully irrigated and intensively groomed with every hole providing a unique challenge.
