CLUB HISTORY
Woburn Golf and Country Club, home of many professional championships, has a roll of honour equalled by few. Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Duke of Bedford`s Estate near Woburn, these 18 hole golf courses are suitably named the Duke's, Duchess and Marquees courses.
GOLF CLUB REVIEWS

02/11/2011 - Sent by Vincent Ian Pinner
  Played the Duchess' and Duke's courses at the end of October.
Fantastic venue and great facilities. Both courses are excellent (having played the Marquess previously, that is also an exceptional track too) with greens running fast - even in October - and conditioning of fairways and tees being of a quality that marks this place out from its peers.

Both the Duchess' and the Duke's are carved out of a pine forest making each hole individual and providing the feeling of wonderful seclusion. The Duchess' course is the least known but is the tightest and arguably the best test of golf of the three on offer. The Duke's is the most famous with the signature par-3 3rd hole being a feature. Nevertheless the Duke's offers up other aesthetically pleasing and challenging holes. On a few holes there are significant carries to make over land that falls away dramatically, ensuring that every shot requires your full attention.
It is a pleasure to play at this place, whichever course you choose. The staff are dedicated to providing a great customer service and it is a place that makes you want to return again just to smell the beautiful pine forest!
The fees are quite high, although not out of line when you compare what you get for your money. We got a special deal with welcome coffee and bacon roll, playing the Duchess' in the morning, a carvery lunch and the Duke's in the afternoon. This cost us about 75 for an October mid-week day.

  Just returned from playing the 3x Courses.19 in our party from Formby Hall.
Couldn t fault ANY of the Courses,Each one was different and in excellent condition,Though you need to be on your best game for the "Dukes" course with its narrow fairways,A true test of your golfing abilities.The staff there were very professional and very helpfull,recommend this to anyone looking for a "Golfing Experience" to remember.

Great course but greens in very poor condition. Looks like a long term problem, for that reason alone I would avoid.

OTHER INFORMATION
<font size= 2 color=#FF0000>The Marquess Course</font>
Golfers are reminded that SOFT SPIKE GOLF SHOES are compulsory on the Marquess Course.
<p> The Marquess course is a breath-taking addition to the golf club and joins the existing Dukes and Duchess courses to create a 54 hole complex that is possibly unrivalled anywhere in the UK. Some are already calling this new course the Jewel in the Crown.
<p> Named after the Marquess of Tavistock, the new course, par 72 and
measuring
7,200 yards long is the design creation of Peter Alliss and Clive Clark,
European
Golf Design (Ross McMurray) and Woburn Director Alex Hay.
<p> Set within 200 acres of mixed woodland the Marquess course overlaps
the county
boundary dividing Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire and presents a
variety of
rolling and undulating terrain. The predominant tree species are pine,
spruce,
sweet chestnut and oak while there are a number of rare specimen trees
such
as Corsican Pine, yew, rowan and beech.
<p> The Marquess Course has been designed to provide an enjoyable
challenge for
golfers of all levels with each hole having its own unique character.
<p> <b><font size= 2 color=#FF0000>The Dukes Course</font></b>
The scene of the British Masters for 20 years as well as other top mens
and
womens professional events, the Dukes Course was created on some of the
finest
inland golfing country in Europe. Both the Dukes and the Duchess
courses were
designed by Charles Lawrie in 1974 when the present Marquess of
Tavistock decided
to bring golf to the Woburn estate.
<p> The fairways of the 6,961yard Dukes Course are lined with pine,
silver birch
and chestnut trees. The famous third hole is framed with rhododendron
bushes
has recently been voted in The Worlds Top 500 Holes by Golf Magazine.
Heather,
bracken and gorse add to the charm of the course as well as the natural
hazards
of each hole.
<p> <b><font color=#FF0000 size= 2>The Duchess Course</font></b>
Now placed in the top 100 courses in the British Isles the Duchess
Course is
a fine example of a course built for the thinking golfer. A different
strategy
is required for each hole incorporating the natural characteristics
provided
to challenge the golfer. Slightly shorter in length than the Dukes
Course,
at 6,651 yards the Duchess Course is cut from more formal pine forest.
Its rolling
fairways and subtle contours are deceptively landscaped to test the
golfers
full repertoire of shots.
<p> An intriguing feature is the ancient Danish fortification and military
earthworks
which cross the course at some of the holes.
<p> We do not have any caddies available, but we can offer buggies to hire
for
£45 per day. Regards payment to play, we accept any major credit card
(switch,
visa, mastercard, etc) and the total amount due must be paid on the
booking
day (no deposit is required).

SPECIAL OFFERS
Two rounds of golf & a three course carvey luncheon between £95 - £115 (April - October) the price depends on what combination of three courses you play (Duke's, Duchess or Marquess)
