Foursomes, Four Balls, Greensomes, Texas Scrambles, Bogey competitions; you name it, we play it! We really do have a wide range of competitions in a variety of formats for you to enjoy. In addition, as an established club we have a full fixture list with other local clubs in the area. We play in all County Competitions and Leagues. These fixtures cover all playing categories and sections and, in addition, we also host a number of Open and Invitation Days. You too could represent Dunstable Downs against other member clubs in friendly competitions.
We have a lot… A busy social calendar.

All year-round golf

At £25 for a round this has got to be one of the best value buggies around…but it is even better value for members at only £20.
