Golf Courses at Woburn
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.

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.
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".

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.

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!
