Welcome to Dowlish Wake Golf Croquet Club
Dowlish Wake nestles in the valley below Windwhistle, on the outskirts of Ilminster, South Somerset. The Golf Croquet Club is situated on the Lawrence Kellett Playing Fields at the end of the village, where there are 3 full size lawns.
The Club has the use of the Pavilion which is currently being rebuilt following an arson attack, and will provide changing rooms and toilets, plus extensive kitchen facilities.
There are organised club days on Mondays and Thursdays, with full members having access to the lawns and equipment on most other occasions for self arranged play.
There are 3 levels of membership Full, Social, and Student/Country – click here to see details.
There are various opportunities for competitive play with in-house competitions, friendly matches with local clubs, and for the more experienced player there are three teams in the South West Federation League.
If you are interested in joining us, or want to learn more about the club – do contact us by clicking here and one of the Committee will be in touch as soon as possible.
2018 Season has begun!
Despite biblical portions of wind, rain and some snow, by fair means and foul we managed to get the lawns ready to start play. We also have a large (but temporary) marquee for shelter until our brand new pavilion is ready, hopefully mid-May and certainly in time for the first league match.
National Croquet Day Sunday 13th May
We were pleased to welcome 16 people during the day who came along to have a go at our challenging and enjoyable game. Around half have agreed to join so we will be very pleased to include them amongst our members.
Roll on completion of the rebuilt pavilion!
