Royal Ascot Golf Club

Royal Ascot Golf Club was founded by local Barrister F.J. Patton in 1887, and given Royal status by Queen Victoria later that year. Many of her children learned to play golf at Royal Ascot, and The Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, was patron of the club in 1901. The Club was originally located within the world famous Ascot Racecourse, but in 2005 moved next door to its new premises. This allowed for the construction of a challenging, 6,294-yard parkland course described by one former Ryder Cup player as “one of the best new English courses I have played for a long time.”
