Venue

In 1908, Stoke Park became Britain's first country club and home to one of the finest parkland golf courses in the world, Harry Colt's Stoke Park. Following the sublime contours of Humphry Repton and 'Capability' Brown's 18th century parkland, this 27-hole championship course is arguably Colt's finest work.

It could be the intelligent design, the refined natural beauty, or the feeling you get when you drop your tee-shot straight onto the green at the signature 7th, but whatever it is you will want to play this course again and again.

The course at Stoke Park is probably the finest example of parkland golf in the British Isles. The Buckinghamshire estate dates back to the Norman Conquest, but much of the surroundings today can be attributed to the giants of eighteenth-century landscape architecture, Capability Brown and Humphry Repton. It is on this gently rolling, elegant canvas that an architectural titan of a different nature was called upon to design a golf course.

Unlike other courses in this part of England, heather does not play a part in Stoke Park’s natural defences. Rather, mature trees of fir and oak, together with clever bunkering and exceptionally swift greens, are the particular features of the course.

Bernard Darwin best summed up the experience of Stoke Park when he once wrote:

"Stoke Park is a beautiful estate, and there is very good golf to be played there … We may get very hot at lawn tennis or keep comparatively cool at bowls or croquet, or, coolest of all, we may sit on the terrace or in the garden and give ourselves wholly and solely to loafing. The mansion is a gorgeous palace, a dazzling vision of white stone, of steps and terraces and cupolas, with a lake in front and imposing trees in every direction."

The eighteenth-century mansion still dazzles today, being home to the clubhouse, a luxury hotel, tennis and a spa complex. It has a history just as interesting as the surrounding golf course and was designed by James Wyatt, architect to George III. The grand Palladian exterior is reflected by the wealth of decoration within: carved fireplaces, marble columns, fine antiques and paintings. There is no lack of sumptuous hospitality found here.

As for the ‘very good golf’, three loops of nine can now be played in the estate grounds. The original course is made up of the Colt and Alison nines (a nod to Colt’s long-standing partner), with the newer Lane Jackson nine (after the club’s founder) lying around the long boating lake to complete the challenging trio. There is no better example to be found anywhere of Colt’s classic sand-faced bunkering style than at Stoke Park. Around every green and near every tee-shot landing area the ground is riddled with well-placed sand to catch anyone who relaxes too much in this beautiful setting.
