Cricket St Thomas Golf Club is located off the A30 near Chard in Somerset.  The club has over 80 years of history and provides members and visitors alike the chance to play on a beautiful parkland course with outstanding views across the surrounding countryside.

The course was originally 9 holes designed in 1932 by 5 times Open Champion JH Taylor.  It was extended to 18 holes in 1991 by Leonard Fisher, who owned the course from 1955-2007, after acquiring adjoining land.

The course benefits from outstanding views across the surrounding countryside, and is kept in top conditioning by a team of dedicated green keepers.

The Par 70 course has matured into a beautiful parkland course with tree lined fairways with tricky greens to test golfers of all abilities.  The course benefits from excellent drainage which guarantees all year round golf.

We offer a wide range of membership packages, and would welcome the opportunity to discuss which one is right for you.
