Brading Rd, Ryde, Isle of Wight, PO33 1QS
Tel: 01983 613131

Westridge Golf Centre is a family friendly facility. Our mature, easy walking course has been designed to provide a challenge to both beginners and skilled players alike. Our practice facilities are second to none and we have the only flood lit driving range on the Isle of Wight. With expert advice on hand from 4 fully qualified P.G.A. professionals. Every course has it´s signature hole. Perhaps, it is the second that takes this honour. A testing drive between trees, to a narrow fairway. Not only is a straight ball called for but distance too is important to permit a relatively easy chip to the green, which is at right angles to the fairway. The third hole also provides a challenge with longish carry over scrub to a ´tightly´ guarded green. If you suffer from fear of water then you may have to find an alternative route to the sixth, a picturesque hole that tempts the carry across the water. Whatever your standard, we know that you will enjoy a round at Westridge Golf Centre.
