The Bristol Golf Club abolishes its dress code – and tee times

The Bristol Golf Club in Almondsbury has abolished its dress code – and even tee times – for one of its courses, in a bid to attract more beginners to the club.

The club has also restructured its pricing for the ‘Little Bristol’ par-three golf course so that people can play golf all day for as little as £5.

Ben Laing, general manager of The Bristol, said: “We have introduced a ‘relaxed’ approach. This means that there is no dress code for players on the Little Bristol, no need to book a tee time, no limit on the number of rounds of golf you can play in a day and there are clubs available for hire.

“The Bristol is a really sociable golf club. All golfers have to start somewhere, so who knows, we may yet produce the next Luke Donald!”

The academy at the club also runs a ‘Junior After School’ programme – a coaching programme which covers all aspects of the game and allows children to put the skills they learn into practice by playing on the Little Bristol course

Mark Boscott, head academy coach at The Bristol GC, said: “We are really keen to encourage more families and juniors to have a go at golf and we hope that making a round of golf at the Little Bristol more affordable means that we will welcome a lot of new players to the club.”
