Golf courses

Dukes Course

The Dukes Course is the most established at Woburn, having hosted the British Masters for over 20 years. Designed by Charles Lawrie in 1976, the 6,983-yard gem winds through mature pine, birch and chestnut trees, with its manicured fairways lined by heather. As beautiful as it is challenging, the Dukes is archetypal Woburn.

STATS

Par: 72 (men) 75 (ladies)

Designed by: Charles Lawrie

Opened for play: 1976

Previously hosted: British Masters (1979, 1981, 1985-1994, 1999, 2000), Travins Perkins Masters (2001-2015), Womens British Open Championship (1984, 1991-1996, 1999, 2016), Brabazon Trophy (1982), Seniors Amateur Open Championship (2005)

TEES

Medal: 6976 yards, SSS 74

Yellow: 6554 yards, SSS 72

Red: 6060 yards, SSS 75

Signature hole- No. 3: Par 3, 134 yards (Medal), SI 15

Dukes signature hole is a wonderful par 3 playing to a green 100 feet below the tee, and surrounded by rhododendrons, gorse and beautiful purple bushes. However, what makes this hole truly special is the undulating green, which turns harshly back to front, meaning that it is of utmost importance to hit the back half of the green, where the pin lies.


Duchess Course

Cut through the pines, the Duchess Course is shorter and narrower than its more established sibling, but this hidden gem is a rare test of golf. More suited to the thoughtful and patient golfer, the Duchess’ subtleties demand finesse and guile to negotiate its splendid 6,651 yards.

Ian Poulter on the Duchess: "Woburn's Duchess' Course is Britain's best kept secret.  More than most courses, this hidden gem puts a massive premium on straight hitting. Anyone who can handle the duchess' can play just about any course".  

STATS

Par: 72 (men) 74 (ladies)

TEES

Medal: 6651 yards, SSS 72

Yellow: 6442 yards, SSS 71

Red: 5809 yards, SSS 74

Signature hole- No. 15: Par 5, 485 yards (Medal), SI 12

The Duchess' 15th can provide real reward for those who fancy themselves with the driver. The hole plays 485 yards and when carrying the hill, the ball may roll kindly and allow for a possible attempt at the green in two. Beware though, this is a dangerous tactic and a narrow fairway means that only a dead straight drive will allow for your ball to keep clear of the trees! The approach shot is played uphill to a multi-tiered green, adding further distance for those wanting to reach in two. A fantastic hole offering great risk-reward golf and a real challenge for those who fancy their putting skills too!


Marquess Course

Opened in 2000, the Marquess Course is a fabulous addition to the Woburn landscape. Measuring 7,214, the layout is a genuine championship proposition that looks set to eclipse its predecessors. Named for the Marquess of Tavistock, this majestic woodland course is among the most spectacular new projects to be completed in recent decades.

2014 saw The Marquess host Final Qualifying for The Open Championship. With just 3 places up for grabs, the triumphant players were Paul Dunne of Ireland who led the way after a -10 total for 2 rounds, he was joined by Oliver Fisher on -7, while Rhys Enoch managed to get take the last place by winning the playoff in dramatic style, chipping in from off the green for a birdie 3.

STATS

Par: 72 (men), 73 (ladies)

Designed by: Peter Alliss, Clive Clark, European Golf Design and Alex Hay

Opened for play: 2000

Previously hosted: British Masters (2001, 2002, 2015), British Open Championship (2016), English Amateur Championship (2011), Final Qualifying for Open Championship (2014, 2015)

TEES

Blue: 7214 yards

Medal: 6744 yards, SSS 74

Yellow: 6329 yards, SSS 72

Red: 5831 yards, SSS 73

Signature hole- No. 7: Par 5, 509 yards (Medal), SI 2 

Marquess' 7th fairway is split down the middle by a line of trees and played from an elevated tee, offering spectacular views over Milton Keys' countryside.  However, at stroke index 2 this is a challenging hole too. From the tee, you have two options- either to take the conventional route of playing down the left side, so to attempt at the green in regulation, or to play down the right whereby you will be left with a challenging shot over a large gully to get to the green. The large green contains sever undulations and large run-off areas, providing no let up to a simply magnificent hole!

Golfer reviews

Excellent test of golf
Very enjoyable golf at all of the courses at Woburn. They're always in fantastic condition and offer a superb challenge. With fast running fairways the challenge isn't all about length with a huge premium on accuracy. You will hear the sound of golf balls hitting trees throughout your round!
