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 was newly built by the village in 2006, and which provides 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 two 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.
2016 (A SAD END)
On 13th October 2016, our lovely pavilion was sadly burned down in an arson attack! It has been a devastating blow.
Luckily it was near the end of our season and, therefore, we have the winter to try and get things sorted so that we can play next year. We hope and expect to be playing both socially and competitively from mid-April 2017, by any means that we can.
If you feel you can offer any assistance to the club, please contact a Committee Member from our Contact page.
The Trustees of our Playing Field Pavilion have established a "Just Giving" fundraising page where donations are being collected: go to www.justgiving.com and search for "Dowlish Wake Pavilion Phoenix Appeal" and the page will be displayed.
