Golf Courses at Woburn Golf Club

Dukes Golf 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.

Course Information

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 6,983 yards SSS 74
Yellow 6,554 yards SSS 72
Red 6,060 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 Golf 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".

Course Information

Par 72 (men) 74 (ladies)
Designed by Charles Lawrie
Opened for play 1976
Previously hosted Seniors Amateur Open Championship (2005),
English Amateur Championship (2011)

Tees

Medal 6,651 yards SSS 72
Yellow 6,442 yards SSS 71
Red 5,809 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 Golf 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.

The Marquess hosted The 2019 Women's British Open, one of the Ladies Major Golf Championships, where the world's very best golfers took on the stunning tree-lined layout in an attempt to claim the coveted trophy.

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.

Tees

Blue 7,218 yards SSS 75
Medal 6,745 yards SSS 74
Yellow 6,329 yards SSS 72
Red 5,832 yards SSS 73

Signature Hole - 7th: 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!

Did You Know?

In 2003, Ian Poulter became Woburn's Touring Professional and in 2004 became the first Woburn member to compete in the Ryder Cup.

2019 saw Woburn host The AIG Womens British Open. This event saw the world's best golfers take on the famed Marquess Golf Course. Created by lead designer, from European Golf Design, Ross McMurray, The Marquess Course is a layout which features many great holes from the split fairway on the par-5 7th hole to the risk and reward on offer at the 303-yard par-4 12th hole. McMurray was able to create a fantastic golf course that focussed heavily on shot-making and was enjoyable by golfers across a range of handicaps.

With a range of awards from the likes of Golf Monthly, Top 100 Golf Courses and more, a round of golf or more at Woburn is one that is well recommended.

Very Good

A very pleasant stay in a charming village. Although it was in the village as opposed to being at the course, traffic was minimal and certainly didn't disturb our sleep. The service was exceptional throughout the hotel from reception to bar to restaurant and even the room maids.

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!

Marquess Course (The Woburn Hotel)

After the euphoria of a hole-in-one on the Duke's the day before it was back to reality on the Marquess. The round was slower than the Duke's as we were following 2 fourball groups of American ladies complete with caddies. The course, however, was in as good a condition as the Duke's but we all found it slightly harder. A bit more length off the tee was required, more of the greens needed to be hit as opposed to rolling on to and once on the green there was more to think about to get the ball in the hole. The only slight criticism was that the greens were a bit slower than on the Duke's which we put down to the fact that the Women's British Open had just been played on the Marquess two weeks before and may have been left to recover a bit. Nevrtheless it was still another very enjoyable experience!

Dukes Course (The Woburn Hotel)

I was here with 7 friends to belatedly celbrate my 60th birthday. I had not played at Woburn before and enjoyed the experience immensely. It's always tempting to enjoy a course and give it a good review simply because you happen to have a good game and vice versa. I did happen to have a good game but regardless of that I thought the course was beautiful and in excellent condition. My opinion may have been swayed by the fact that not only did I win the day but the icing on the cake was a hole-in-one on the 12th. The Club very kindly donated a bottle of champagne to help celbrate the ace with the gang and a certificate to frame as a momento. A very thoughtful touch! Thank you Woburn.
