Our History

Broome Manor Golf Club is one of the youngest golf clubs in Wiltshire (Established in 1977) but has established itself as one of the most competitive and successful. We are fully affiliated to the English & Wiltshire Golf Union, the English Women’s Golf Association and the Wiltshire Ladies Golf Union. This means that members of Broome Manor are eligible to play at almost every golf course in Great Britain (subject to certain handicap constraints). Information on how to become a member and what membership to Broome Manor Golf Club includes can be found here.

Please Note: The extensive golf and leisure facilities at Broome Manor Golf Complex are managed by Twigmarket Ltd. If you have a query relating to green fees, golf societies or wedding and party bookings please visit the Broome Manor Golf Complex website where you’ll find information on opening times and prices along with the contact details needed to make a booking. Information on individual golf tuition and group lessons can be found on theSwindon Premier Golf Academy website.

We welcome golfers of all ages and abilities to become members of the club, whether you’re a retiree looking to join our Seniors section or a young golfer looking to join one of our growing Junior sections. Our Tiny Tigers (5 – 10 years) and Junior Tigers (11 and over) sections are both a great way to get into the game and meet some new friends.

We are also proud to be a part of the HSBC Golf Roots – Golf Foundation Initiative. Golf Roots helps us actively engage with the community through work with individual schools, school sport partnerships, young people’s organisations and local authorities. It also provides a young person with an introduction to the club and golf facilities and the opportunity to progress through the national learning programme, the Junior Golf Passport. For more information on what’s on other for Junior golfers visit the Junior Golf section.

The course, which since November 1st 2014 is operated by Twigmarket Ltd (on a 75 year lease from Swindon Borough Council), was opened to the public in 1976 and the Golf Club was established a year later. We are proud to say that some of the founder members are still active members of the club and that the Club Championship has been sponsored, since it began in 1978, by Deacons Jewellers of Old Town.

All four sections (Men, Ladies, Seniors and Juniors) are successful and well supported, and at the start of 2009 we had over 100 single handicap players, a measure of our strength. Our men’s section has had regular success at county level and proudly won the oldest event in Wiltshire County Golf, The Team Shield, in 2006 and retained it in 2007 and 2008.

The club has nurtured and supported a number of individual players who have represented Wiltshire and Great Britain. Four players have reached international level, including David Howell, a European Tour player with a number of European tour victories under his belt, who was also a member of the winning European Ryder Cup Team in 2004 and 2006.
