All members are to note the following:

  • Golf is limited to a 'bookable' 9 holes of golf 'outside the wire' per day, per person.
  • The playing order of holes will be 12 - 18 , followed by 1 & 2, players must then leave the course via the Driving Range
  • If you do not have a booking, you can not play golf at the Defence Academy.


Please abide by these rules, as access to the club will be removed if restrictions and guidelines are not followed by all members.
STRICTLY no golf can be played 'inside the wire (holes 8 - 11)' as of Monday 8 June 2020 until further notice.

WHS Players Guide

Something we can all do while the course is closed is to get up to speed with the new World Handicap System. So take a few minutes to go through the guide and FAQ's listed on the Berks Bucks and Oxon web site. That way we can all hit the ground running when the current situation is all over and we can get back to golfing.

On Course Foundation

The Defence Academy Golf Club has once again this year chosen the On Course Foundation as their chosen Charity.
This charity raises funds for our sick and injured Service personnel and veterans. It is with pleasure that we would like to share with you a link to the Simpson Cup feature produced by Golfing World - click here to watch it.

DAGC MEN's CAPTAIN (2020)

It is with great pleasure and anticipation of a marvellous year of golf for the men's team that I am thrilled to announce that Tony Norris has agreed to take on the Men's Captaincy for the season. With a wealth of experience of the team, its fixtures and the game as it now stands in relation to handicaps I can think of no better person to Captain the men this year. Thank you Tony, Thank you Gentlemen for the support you will now give him, and have a great 2020 season

please contact David Jenkins Mobile No: 07747004402

The Club, established in 1956, is an attractive 18 hole course within the confines of the Defence Academy of The United Kingdom. The 18 different holes are achieved by a devious combination of 14 greens and 17 tees, so making each hole unique. We are established to encourage beginners to take up the sport and a visiting professional is available for lessons. The course has evolved to give all standards of players an enjoyable game in pleasant parkland conditions. The course is 5684 yards long and par 70. Our handicaps are recognised by the English Golf Union - a vital entree to other clubs when you leave.

There are at least two competitions each month, with all the entry fees being returned as prizes. There are also some 30 matches a season, against local Club and Military teams. The Club Captain would be glad to hear from players holding EGU handicaps. If friendly golf is your thing then the course is open dawn to dusk with very few tee restrictions - see Competitions, Fixtures and Course Notice Board on this web site or the club notice boards.

 

Club membership is comprised of personnel employed or studying at the Defence Academy and members of the local community. For details of the course and club membership fees please contact the Club Manager on 01793 785725. Membership forms can be downloaded and completed using the links on the menu to the left of this page.
