You will always receive a warm welcome at Woburn Golf Club both in the pro shop and in the clubhouse. Before your round on the challenging Duke’s Course, you can take the opportunity to have a practice at the driving range. After your round, reminisce over the challenges of the course you tackled whilst enjoying a beverage and a good meal.
This course is a challenge for golfers of all abilities so perhaps isn’t suitable for those with higher handicaps due to its tight fairways and strategically placed hazards including bunkers which are rarely visible from the tee so are very difficult to avoid.
There are some excellent holes which standout including the famous par-3 3rd hole which has been named in Golfing Magazine as being in the top 500 holes of the world. The 3rd hole is framed by rhododendrons and gorse, although it is only 125 yards in length, it is tricky due to the fact that the green is 100ft below the tee and the green slopes from back to front. Another standout hole is the 5th which is a short par-5 and requires you to hit as far too the right as you can without landing in the trees as anything towards the left will roll down a slope towards more trees.
This is an excellent course situated in beautiful surroundings and is one that shouldn’t be missed out on!
