For the vast majority of us golfers at YGT it would be pretty tough to beat a day on one of the finest golf courses in the UK, and perhaps the whole of Europe, especially with the knowledge that a world class Argentine steak, cooked by the famous Gaucho Restaurant Company, accompanied by delicious red wine or ice cold beer, would be awaiting your arrival in the clubhouse following your round.

The 7th at Stoke Park is said to be the inspiration for the famous 12th hole at Augusta National.
Stoke Park Country Club and Resort is one of the most exclusive establishments in the UK and is home to 27 of the finest parkland holes in the country. Opened in 1908, and originally known as the Stoke Poges Golf Club, the estate boasts a splendid 27-hole complex, with three distinctive loops designed by Harry S. Colt, one of England’s most esteemed architectural names.
The enchanting courses encircle the club’s monumental stately clubhouse, and have stood the test of time more than a century since their inauguration.
