Course and Club Histoy
Bedford Borough Council established the Mowsbury Golf Complex in response to the growing demand for more accessible golf for its residents, with the course being opened in May 1975 . Mowsbury Golf Club was formed in 1975 to enable golfers to play competitive golf and gain officially recognised handicaps. The Club is affiliated to England Golf, Bedfordshire County Golf Union and Bedfordshire Ladies County Golf Association.
The leisure facility has now matured into a well maintained public course with spectacular views across the North Bedfordshire countryside and the county town. Designed by Martin Hawtree; the undulating 18-hole golf course offers a fair challenge to beginners and low handicap players alike with strategically placed ponds, ditches and bunkers waiting to claim any wayward shots.
The complex offers a warm welcome to all levels of golfer and has something for everyone from beginners of all ages learning a new skill on the practice ground to seasoned golfers looking to improve their skills both on and off the golf course. The floodlit driving range provides the ideal opportunity to practice and improve technique alongside the practice putting green.
The complex is operated by Fusion who manage all of the councils leisure facilities. A flexible range of green fees is offered from Pay & Play, with midweek and twilight discounts, through to 7 day annual packages. They all provide tremendous value for money some of which can be combined with local gym and swim facilities to provide an overall fitness package for a single monthly payment. For the younger golfer there is a progressive route from junior to adult green fees over twelve years to enable them to continue in golf at a very reasonable rate as their earning power increases.
Although originally developed for local residents Mowsbury welcomes all golfers and Golf Societies seven days a week with an extensive choice of options available.
