Broome Manor Golf Club is one of the youngest golf clubs in Wiltshire (founded in 1977) but has established itself as one of the most competitive and successful in the county. It is based at Broome Manor Golf Complex, home to two courses – an 18-hole and 9-hole.
Broome Manor Golf Club’s most well-known past member is David Howell (see ‘Our History’ page) but can also boast several other members over the years who have represented their country. More recently, Olivia Bannon represented Wales under 16 Girls’ v Ireland in March 2019, the first player from Broome Manor to represent Wales.
2019 was a successful year for the club, with the men’s Wiltshire League team finishing 3rd in Division 1, then the men’s 2nd team of Mike Cox, Max Drayton & Paul Sandry winning the scratch County Team Shield at the Wiltshire County Championships at Wrag Barn, going on to represent Wiltshire at the English Champion Club finals at Romford Golf Club. The Men’s team was runner-up in the Buthlay Cup in 2019, a match-play tournament with over 20 Wiltshire teams participating. The ladies’ league team also performed well, finishing runners-up in Division 2 of the Wiltshire scratch league, having been promoted from Division 3 the previous year. Excellent performances from our junior girls contributed to the team’s success. Other successes included Serena Bennett & Sharon O’Neill both topping their divisions in the Wiltshire Golf Ladies President’s prize & Jane Austin and Dee Stevens doing likewise in the Vets Spring meeting at High Post. Congratulations also go to one of our junior girls, Niamh Cripps, who has been selected from a large field, to be one of six England Golf Young Ambassadors for 2020.
Other fabulous achievements include our junior team reaching the finals of the 2019 English Junior Team Championships at Woodall Spa & Jack Mawer winning his age group at the US Kids Caribbean Championships.
We have a very active and strong junior section, split into Cubs, Tigers, Super Tigers – a great way to get into the game and make new friends. We work closely with Swindon Premier Golf Academy, based at the Complex and organise many junior competitions throughout the year. One of our most prestigious junior events is the Tiger Cup, held in October each year. In true Ryder Cup style, the teams represent Europe and USA with much rivalry between them. This has become quite well-known in the county and beyond, with good luck messages received last year from David Howell and Francesco Molinari! For more information on what’s on offer for junior golfers, visit the Junior Golf section.
We welcome golfers of all ages and abilities to become members of the club and offer an extensive competitive programme for all sections. New for 2020/21 is a comprehensive programme of 9-hole qualifying competitions, perfect for players new to the game or those wishing to play on a shorter course.
