Woburn - Duke's Course

  • Woburn Golf Club’s Duke’s Course was designed by Charles Lawrie and was the first of the three Woburn courses to be constructed. This beautiful course has played host to many tournaments over the years including the British Masters, the Women’s British Open and the Travis Perkins Masters.
     
    At 6,983 yards, this is a long and beautiful course with its fairways lined with pine, silver birch and chestnut trees making this a charming round of golf in a stunning area of Buckinghamshire. You must not be distracted by the beauty of this course as it is a stern challenge with plenty of straight and long drives and if you are unlucky enough to land off the fairway, you will be blocked out from the green due to the trees and plants lining the course. The condition of the course is excellent and is one that will provide you with a memorable and interesting challenge from the 1st tee to the final putt on the 18th hole. With some narrow fairways, strategically placed hazards, including trees, and some world-class holes, this is a must-play course for any discerning golfer who is looking for a great challenge. There are three excellent courses at Woburn Golf Club so make sure that you play the other two whilst you are here.

    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!
