Spotlight on… Buckinghamshire


 

Buckinghamshire is home to the Chiltern Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, where several courses are quietly hidden away, providing the perfect setting for an early season round of golf.

 

Check out some of the following tracks we have to offer…

 

Wexham Park

 

Reputed to be one of the best daily fee courses in the Buckinghamshire and the southeast, Wexham Park is equipped to provide its visitors with a memorable visit.

 

Located on the borders of Buckinghamshire and Berkshire, this club boasts two courses, Footgolf, family golf, tuition, and offers fantastic practice facilities, including short game area, driving range and putting green.

 

Following the lengthening of the Blue Course in 2015, the changes have now been incorporated by the existing landscape and the course is flourishing. The Blue, set in an idyllic parkland landscape hosts two reputable, well maintained and stunning loops of nine. Tree lined and wooded, this inland course has many water hazards and can be enjoyed by all levels of player.

 

Harleyford Golf Club

 

Located just outside the Thames town of Marlow, you will find The Harleyford Estate – one of the most beautiful private country estates in the south of England. Beautifully crafted in a natural downland setting, the 6,714-yard, par-72 course is both challenging and rewarding to players of all levels. The clubhouse has been developed on a theme from the Victorian farm buildings and provides stunning facilities.

 

The course delivers a feeling of exclusivity but also a friendly and sociable atmosphere. Recently voted as one of the Top 10 Courses in Buckinghamshire, Harleyford Golf Club was designed in the early 1990s by one of the world’s leading golf course architects, Donald Steel.

 

The South Buckinghamshire

 

The Colt/Hawtree design is both challenging and rewarding in equal measure with several good birdie opportunities and a memorable selection of holes (6th, 10th, 11th, 13th and 16th) that would grace the finest championship layout. Set in 130 acres of attractive mature wooded parkland, The South Buckinghamshire is the ideal venue for a relaxing game of golf. There is a friendly ambience on and off the course and the clubhouse offers an extensive menu in comfortable surroundings.

 

Gerrards Cross 

 

Gerrards Cross is set in parkland with extensive woodland areas. Beech and oak trees, characteristic in this area of Buckinghamshire, feature on many holes and as you can imagine the course is particularly attractive in spring and autumn. The Course measures 6,243 yards from the white tees with one par 5 and four par 3s.  With a par of 69, the course provides a good test of golf, confirmed by a SSS of 71, accuracy is the key!

 

The views across the Misbourne valley from the elevated tees at the 2nd and 18th tees are a delight. The final three holes are particularly picturesque and a delight to play, particularly the 18th –  a memorable and testing dogleg hole.  A well-placed drive is required to set up a long downhill second shot over the River Misbourne which runs across the course a few yards from the green.  Reaching the last green safely in two shots would be the highlight of any visit!

 

Chiltern Forest

 

Located on the edge of the Chiltern Hills, on the border with Hertfordshire, the picturesque Chiltern Forest provides a great setting for a fantastic day’s golf. Afterwards, you can relax in the clubhouse, enjoy a bite to eat and take in the spectacular views. Chiltern Forest Golf Club stands out with its rises and falls across the hill, as well as ensuring every hole is different. The golf club is set away from roads and other distractions, meaning this golf course is an oasis of tranquillity and calm to further enhance your golfing experience.
