We're proud that our Club has produced and is home to the finest players to emerge from our region. Gordon Brand Jnr (Ryder Cup player), Mark Sanders (English Amateur Champion), Hannah Barwood (Curtis Cup player) Susan Shapcott (Curtis Cup player) Caley McGinty (Curtis Cup player) are all products of our fantastic junior programme, for which we are renowned.

Knowle players have dominated County Golf at all levels and age groups over the years. We have been Bristol & District League Champions a record 20 times. These achievements are a result of being active in the local community, opening our doors to local children and schools and crucially, being recognised as a friendly club where people enjoy spending their leisure time.

We're justifiably proud of the achievements of our elite players, however first and foremost our priority is the enjoyment and ambience experienced by our members.

Our Approach

We're fortunate in that we have a two tee start so that 2 balls & 4 Balls are able to start separately ensuring that play is seldom held up.

Our members tell us they love that they don't have to book tee times, and it is one of the advantages of membership, that with the exception of some competition days, members can just roll up and play. We're a traditional Club in many respects but we only hold dear the traditions that are worth preserving. You won't find outdated attitudes or petty rules here.


At the heart of the Club is our modern Clubhouse and whilst some clubs struggle and appear sleepy, Knowle is a sociable place with a warm, welcoming and friendly atmosphere. In the summer months, the patio overlooking the course is a great place to spend time and enjoy a refreshing drink. We have large, well appointed changing rooms and lockers to store clubs as well as space for trolley storage.

Our Dining Room can comfortably seat large groups and is also well adapted to more intimate lunches and family occasions. We offer a delicious menu that proves popular with golfers and non golfers alike.
