Although it is England's sixth biggest city, there are actually plenty of places to play if you know where to go.

1. Bristol & Clifton Golf Club

Situated just four miles from the M5 and from Bristol city centre, Bristol & Clifton is easy to get to from anywhere. It's a par-72 6,413 yards off the white tees and is immaculately kept, but one of the more expensive in the area.

Postcode: BS8 3TF
Closest station:
Parson Street
Cost of round: £33-45
Playing requirements: None

2. Knowle Golf Club

Knowle represents decent value for money at £30 on weekdays, and there is the option of starting from the 10th tee to limit waiting times which is handy. 6,047 yards, par 70.

Postcode: BS4 5DF
Closest station:
Bedminster
Cost of round: £30-45
Playing requirements: None

3. Chipping Sodbury Golf Club

Chipping Sodbury is 12 miles from Bristol, in the foothills of the Cotswolds. Accuracy is key though, as there is water to avoid on many of the holes. Cheap rates available in the afternoons.

Closest station:
Yate
Cost of round: £25-509
Playing requirements: None

4. Filton Golf Club

Perhaps not quite as picturesque as some of the other courses in the area, but easily accessible from the city centre and definitely worth playing.

Closest station:
Filton Abbeywood
Cost of round: £36-40
Playing requirements: None
Website: Filton Golf Club

5. The Players Golf Club

With two 18-hole courses and a 9-hole course, The Players can cater for everyone. Although it only opened in 2002, it is already regarded as one of the top courses in the country. Look out though - there is sand and water lurking on most holes.

6. Tall Pines Golf Club

This 6,067-yard rolling parkland course offers views over the Bristol Channel into Wales, but you won't have to overpay for the privilege at just £20 on weekdays.

Closest station:
Hailsea & Backwell
Cost of round: £20-25
Playing requirements: None

7. Henbury Golf Club

This is not the longest of courses, but it is ideally located very close to the M5 and just a few miles outside of the city centre.

Postcode: BS10 7QB
Closest station:
Sea Mills
Cost of round: £30-36
Playing requirements: None
Website: Henbury Golf Club

8. Shortwood Lodge Golf Club

Not in the same class as many others, but hard to compain at £12 for a round. Located east of Bristol and a few miles south of the M4, this won't be the best course you've ever played, but it might be the cheapest.

Cost of round: £12-14
Playing requirements: None

9. The Bristol Golf Club

The Bristol measures 6,111 yards from the back tees, so perhaps more suited to the shorter players. It is set amongst stunning scenery though, and has previously hosted both Europro and Jamega Tour events.

Closest station:
Patchway
Cost of round: £25-39
Playing requirements: None

10. Woodspring Golf & Country Club

Woodspring boasts a 27-hole golf course designed by Donald Steel, Peter Alliss and Clive Clark. It is comprised of three separate 9-hole courses, each testing different aspects of the game. And at £16, this is another round that won't break the bank.

Postcode: BS41 9LR
Closest station:
Parson Street
Cost of round: £16-18
Playing requirements: None
