Welcome to Tewkesbury Park Golf

Tewkesbury Park added to the MUST PLAY list in "Todays Golfer (January 2020 Edition)" magazine.
Quote; "In a nutshell... It has improved and developed beyond recognition in recent times and is now the complete golf resort, boasting 27 holes including the newly-named par-72 Deerpark, a 93-room luxury hotel with excellent leisure and spa facilities, and two restaurants. It really is a class act.
To play well you need to... The key is always leave it short of the pin on the Deerpark as you'll have an uphill putt... almost all greens putt downhill from the back. Drive well and you can take full advantage of the handful of par-5s (off the yellows) with one, three and 12 all birdieable. Don't over-club on the four par-3s otherwise you'll be dropping shots.
You'll love... Lovingly plotted on a 200-acre site overlooking Cheltenham, the Cotswolds, Severn Valley, Malverns and the Welsh Mountains, where the main attraction - Frank Pennick's Deerpark layout - was built on the town's historic medieval deer park. You'll be putting out on some of the best inland greens in the region, too, and a round here is excellent value for money."

Tewkesbury Park added to the MUST PLAY list in "Todays Golfer (March 19 Edition)" magazine and The June edition of National Club Golfer. Quote; "This is a mini Gleneagles.
It doesn't have the vast facilities, number of golf holes or dining options of the Scottish venue, but its bedrooms lack for little in comparison - and there are not many golf resorts that can say that."

Our course has been designed by the famous golfer and course designer, Frank Pennink and opened in July 1976. We offer an impressive 18 hole, 6579 yard, par 72 course, offering challenging play for both professional and amateur golfers alike.
The course that boasts some classic natural features, testing yet true greens and water hazards all based in the grounds of the impressive hotel.

Wales 230, England 229, RoW 222, Ireland 219 and Scotland 208.
Format: 5 teams of 9, taking the best 7 scores to count. Probably was one of the biggest we have run and justified moving it to a Sunday.

7th September 2019 - The Club Team Challenge
The Club Team Challenge took place this past saturday. It's a fun competition designed to bring all sections of the club together to join in battle for two trophies. One you would like to win and one you most certainly don't want to win! I'd like to thank this years Captains for assembling their teams - Frank Nolan, Fiona Hudman, Mike Slatter, Owen Bond & Norman Macsween. With myself taking the 6th team. I can assure the reader that the banter between the Captains in the run up to the event was 'colourful'. Who would be eating their words? Who would stop the Ladies winning for the fourth time on the trot?
As the cards started landing on my desk it became clear that 2 teams had played well and 2 teams had played poorly and 2 safely in the middle. It was going to be close at the top and the bottom.
We went for lunch. Pork loin, cider sauce, roast spuds etc, say no more.
Except for Rob Halling twice asking for, and getting, extra crackling.

The Results
Neil Smith took nearest the pin on the 7th.
In 4th place with 140 points was the Club Team, Captain Norman Macsween
In 3rd place with 142 points was the Seniors Team, Captain Mike Slatter
Tensions rising for the lower two teams
In 5th place with 130 points was the Ladies Team, Captain Fiona Hudman
And in 6th place with a very sad face and a very sad total of 128 points and winning the wooden spoon was our own Club Captain Frank Nolan.
2 teams to go.
In 2nd place with 143 points was The Vice Captains team, myself a very proud Captain.
And our Winning team this year was the G4L team Captained by Owen Bond with 146 points. The team being - Owen Bond, Andy Quinn, Mike Fern, Richard Rowe, Scott Bridges and Joey Gilder.
Very well played gentlemen.
Thankyou to all players for taking part.

Fi and I had great fun following many of you around in the golf buggy and was great to get some photos and chat to you. Thanks to the Pro Shop for letting us have this.
Some spot prizes were on offer too for nearest the pins and driving to select targets on the course. Well done to those who won a bottle of wine.

20th April 2019 | The Presidents Cup Match Report
Tewkesbury Park hosted Lilley Brook Golf Club in the Presidents Cup. The weather on the day was stunning. Beautiful blue skys and sunshine, a very light breeze and late April temperatures that saw the golfers wearing shirtsleeves which was a very pleasant change.

Tewkesbury Park fielded a strong team of 10 determined players that was a mixture of experience and welcome fresh faces to the Presidents Cup Foursomes format. This led to an excited and slightly nervous atmosphere on the first tee, but every team got away well and the first match of this years campaign was underway.
There was some welcome support from Tewkesbury Park members around the course and as Captain I learnt that after 5 holes we were up in 2 matches, level in 2 and down in one which was very promising. The standout news at that early stage being that new boys Ben Davies and Scott Bridges were 5 up after 5 (there does seem to be Mexican music in the background whenever they are playing ...). After 9 it was still in the balance with Tewkesbury Park being comfortably up in 2 but all other matches being level. As the back 9 progressed Tewkesbury Park home advantage and the competitiveness of our players started to prevail and after 13 we were up in 3, level in 1 and down in 1. A couple of the matches finished on 14 and 15 and the other 3 went down to the last couple of holes.

The final result was a Tewkesbury Park victory 4 matches to 1. Some notable performances on the day came from Ben Davies and Scott Bridges in their first Presidents Cup match with a 5&3 win and Frank Nolan for stepping into the team late in the day and then giving Stef Hunt the confidence to play really good golf against a strong pairing.
Thanks also go out to Mike Slatter (our very supportive President), Joey Guilder, Nigel Fletcher and Fiona Hudman for supporting around the course.

12th June 2018 - The Presidents Cup (1st Round)
Tewkesbury Park hosted The Bristol Golf Club in our first round of this years Presidents Cup campaign 2018.
With nothing but positive comments from our visiting rivals the course was laid out in fine condition with a few challenging pins to test all our golf games to the limit.

Tewkesbury Park, fielding a side of a mix of experience and youth against the away side bringing only seasoned President Cup players, some with a very strong record.
The overall result was a very close affair yet we just managed to tip the scales in the home sides favour.
The end result being 3&2 in a very hard-fought match between 2 very equally sided teams.
In one match the golf was played to such a level there were 7 birdies and 1 eagle.
The final match had to go back down the first to play extra holes to get an overall result with the home team holing out for yet another birdie the away side only managed a par for the final point Tewkesbury Park needed for the win.
The course was great, the weather was great and the sportsmanship was great.
The whole team played great and the result was great.
Onwards and upwards.
Looking forward to the next match, 2nd Round draw to follow shortly ...

On a Final Note
A big thank you from all the Team to all who took the time to come and support, making the camaraderie on the night all the better and adding to the whole evening in a very positive light.

23rd July 2017 - Club Captains Day
Captains Day 2017 was a thrilling and exciting affair. The Captain kept everyone guessing about the format, and even when the members found out the scoring system they were still confused!

The day started with registration and the controversial question, "Do you want to play with the Captains Balls?" All players had been asked to turn up with non related golf items that they might be asked to use on the day (wellies and a calculator).
Those there early enough in their 4 ball, with the items, had the chance to play with one of 12 balls monogrammed "Captain Smithy".
The first game was for them to play with them (as their main ball), if they brought it back they would get a prize, if they lost it they had to put £5.00 into the Captains Charity. There are still 4 out on the course ...

The main competition was lots of games within games. It was a game of two halves and lots of spot prizes, the first 9 holes were played in the format of "Bingo, Bango, Bongo". A tactical golf game that is not about getting the least shots but about being on the green first, or closest to the pin and possibly winning the hole. The back 9 was played in the format of "Trifecta". A much more traditional game that is based on nett scores but with 12 points available per hole.

After the confusion of rules and understanding the tactics of the game, lots of fun and banter was had in the four balls, just as the captain had wanted. To add to the sense on tension and excitement when the scores started coming in, no one had a clue what a good score was, or who would win!

There were a total of 25 prizes available. Congratulations to all the winners.
Overall a great day, a fun day and lots of laughs had by all.

29th April 2017 - GGU County AMAM
Tewkesbury Park was well represented with 2 teams from 20.
The team of Mel Hadfield, Russull McNamara, and Alex Wiggins and the County Player who had only this year returned to golf from football, Alex Ward.
One of the first teams out and in, posted a score which was going to be difficult to match. During the course of the day two other scores came in that were close but not close enough.
The County players had a scratch competition which was good but if Alex Wiggins could have entered would have won it with his magnificent score of 66 gross, 3 strokes better than the scratch players.
Well done Alex, unfortunately it was not a qualifier. Well done to the team and to Tewkesbury Park. Join us again whenever you can.

9th October 2016 - The Presidents Cup Team Final
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Tewkesbury Park are Gloucestershire Presidents Cup Champions for 2016.

Five pairs travelled to Filton GC to take part in finals day. Long Ashton were the opponents in the semi-finals, all Tewkesbury pairings were giving shots and after a very close encounter and some excellent golf played by both teams TP came through a tough match by a score of 4-1. All eyes quickly turned to the other semi between Ross and The Bristol GC. I think everyone wanted to do battle with Ross again in a repeat of the 2014 final at Shirehampton. It was not to be The Bristol came through a close encounter with a narrow winning margin of 3-2.

After a short break for lunch and permission granted to Dave Allen to have one pint to settle the nerves the final commenced. Again TP giving away shots in all matches, TP were led out by Club Captain Brad Ainslie and Dave Allen who went down early and after a spirited fight back narrowly lost a closely fought match. Game two was Calum Dawes and myself, Calum continued his impressive form from the semi-final in which he played some of the best golf I have witnessed at amateur level which resulted in a 4&3 victory. Harry Sayers and Rob Halling finished A/S after 18 holes and headed off to the 19th hole. All attention was diverted to the 17th green to watch the remaining pairs of Josh Ainslie and Adam Gill and Gav Offord Neil Smith who both were holding on to narrow leads. The young guns ( not Neil and Gav) continued to embrace their impressive partnership throughout the competition to win their point putting Tewkesbury 2-1 up. Next up was the stubborn old guard of Neil and Gav, these two guys have been a rock at the back of the team all season, I admire the competiveness along with an burning desire to bring home the bacon for the team, and once more they achieved their goals with victory on the 17th.

It has been an honour for me to Captain this years PC team and a bunch of guys who are so keen to represent their club and do well for each other. I have played a lot of team sports over the years and can honestly say that the team spirit shown in this team by all players throughout the whole competition is by far the best I have experienced and I am very proud to be a part of that.

A huge thank you goes out to all the supporters who have been there in every round, rain or shine, it gives the team a massive boost and promotes the "never give up attitude" that this team has in abundance.

I hope as many of you as possible can attend this years county dinner which is being held at TP this to watch the trophy being presented for a third time.

It has truly been a pleasure, lets do it again next year.

Kind Regards

A very proud Team Captain - Simon Whitehall

Mike Unwin closes off the club night season by winning the 2016 Shoot-Out final.
10 qualifing golfers went head to head playing stableford down the first hole with one dropping out at the end, if 2 or more golfers were tied a sudden death chip off decided who went through to the next hole. This eventually left 2 golfers going down the 9th to decide who was the Shoot-Out Champion of 2016.How the competition played out ...
