Woburn Duke’s Course Review
Woburn is one of the best golf venues in Britain, which makes it one of the best in Europe.
When you arrive here you may find it hard to believe that the Duke's course was only first opened for play in 1976. From the start, it looked like a well-established course, and for that, Charles Lawrie, who designed it, is to be applauded. He made the most of what was already there and produced a masterpiece that carves its way through the giant pine trees.
It is immaculately manicured all year round, with splendid greens and plenty of heather and gorse to punish wayward shots.
It has hosted the British Masters, the Women's British Open and the Travis Perkins Senior Masters.
Measuring 6,983 yards from the championship tees, the Duke's course opens with a gentle enough 517-yard par five. The sixth is a glorious par three measuring 207 yards - it is played to a raised green, guarded by bunkers and surrounded by trees. A classic golf hole. Speaking of which, the 18th is just 385 yards, and is a simple enough par four if you pull out a rescue club and play for position, but those who hit the ball a long way may be tempted to pull out a driver and try to smash the ball over the trees on the right side of the fairway.
