Welcome to Came Down Golf Club

Birthplace of the Ryder Cup

Came Down Golf Club, located in Thomas Hardy country just south of Dorchester, Dorset's county town, offers a spectacular golfing challenge suitable for all skill levels. The Golf Club was founded in 1896, and boasts an excellent golfing experience, suitable for all skill levels. The course sits on chalk downland and offers stunning 360 degree views to locations such as Weymouth, Portland, Dorchester, Isle of Wight, Maiden Castle and more.

The current layout was designed by HS Colt of Muirfield, Royal Lytham, Pine Valley, St Andrews, Wentworth and Sunningdale fame.

Golf World magazine named our course among their 100 'Hidden Gems', placing us in illustrious company, and we would be delighted if you paid us a visit to discover for yourself why we received such an accolade.

We are a very friendly club and visitors are more than welcome to come and sample our hospitality. For a round of golf in Dorset, there's nowhere better than Came Down.

Came Down is an inclusive amateur golf club that welcomes visitors and members from the whole community. We have no `Stuffy Rules` but we do encourage widespread participation in the sport of golf. For this reason low cost membership is available on application for those on low or modest income.
