The Springs Golf Club offers a fantastic range of memberships at our beautiful course in Wallingford, Oxfordshire

Our wonderful course is spread over 133 acres of picturesque parkland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, meaning you can soak up the tranquil countryside when you play. The Springs offers more than golf, with a stunning Tudor-style clubhouse hosting a range of events all year round, including quiz nights, afternoon tea days and festive dinners to enjoy.

the course

Our popular course challenges beginners and advanced golfers alike, it was originally designed by Brian Huggett MBE, a former Ryder Cup Captain.

Brian managed to incorporate the range of terrains found around the parkland of The Springs to create an innovative and admired golf course, which is popular with players all over the UK. The course recently featured the prestigious and popular Trilby Tour Championship, which was featured on Sky Sports.

As well as the course itself being challenging, the surrounding area adds to the game as it is completely open to the elements. The 8th hole in particular will challenge all, as it is the place you’re most likely to be impacted by the wind of the day, which means that depending on weather conditions you could need anything from a wood to a mid-iron for the shot. Our beautifully designed course will test all your skills and knowledge, making a fun round of golf for all abilities.
