Girton Golf Club celebrated 80 years in existence in November 2016 and is a successful, well-equipped and well-organised members club with excellent facilities sitting in the village of Girton on the edge of Cambridge.

It is known as a no “airs and graces” club, a real golf club, not a multi-sports profit centre. A club where you can just turn up and be pretty sure of an offer of a game from a fellow member. Above all, a friendly club, where anyone can join, find a welcome and become integrated as part of a family. Our Golf Club is probably best known for its friendly and relaxed atmosphere that ensures that a round of golf, no matter how tough on the day, is a pleasurable experience.

Girton Golf Club is owned and run by its members, for its members, currently numbering around 750.

The Directors and Management Committees make the policy and strategic decisions, which are implemented by the Director of Golf Alan Fletcher and his staff. He leads and coordinates the work of the full-time golf professionals, shop, bar, catering, administration and greenkeeping functions

Situated at the end of Dodford Lane, Girton, Girton Golf Club has progressed a very long way since its foundation in 1936 as a nine hole course. In 1965 the members purchased the freehold of the course and set up a company controlled by them and the club has never looked back. More land was purchased, and the course was extended to 18 holes in 1979 and the spacious new clubhouse was opened in 1992.

The present highly manicured parkland course is very different from the early days when club members cut the fairways themselves with a gang mower towed behind an old Austin Seven.

Nowadays the green-keeping staff has all the modern machinery required to keep the course immaculate and the greens perfect. Continuous investment has taken place in remodelling the course, in planting, drainage and implementing a full irrigation system to the greens and tee areas. The course is now a visual delight with a profusion of trees and flowering shrubs bordering its fairways and boundaries. There is also an abundance of wildlife seen at the club both in the skies and on the ground – it is always worth looking up when playing the course just to see with whom you are sharing the fairways. Keep an eye out for Girton's famous black squirrels!

The keen golfer will find that whilst the course is comparatively flat it is quite tight and represents a testing challenge of accuracy and control. It is a par 69 of 6012 yards, with two particularly challenging short holes of some 133 and 138 yards (the 4th and the 17th) and an exciting final hole which at 565 yards is one of the longer in the county. From the ladies tees the course presents an interesting and demanding 5417 yards at a par 72..
