  • I played yesterday (Wednesday) and thought the course looked great. Everything looked neat and tidy - the Greens staff had obviously been busy clearing the leaves - the fairways were in good condition and the greens were a good speed - and it is November ! Well done.

  • 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.

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. Click here for more information on costs.

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. 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.  

Visitors are always welcome and 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.
