Stoke Park

Could it be the best parkland in England? Quite possibly!

Stoke Park

Buckinghamshire, England

Overview

Harry Colt's parkland wonder, Stoke Park Golf Club, sites perfectly aside Capability Brown and Humphry Repton's work.

Twilight rates during high season are just £75 to play this championship golf course!

The 7th hole was the inspiration for the 16th at Augusta National.

The par-3 11th is a textbook, characteristic Harry Colt one-shot hole.

Golf Course Review

Stoke Park was known as Stoke Poges in the golf writings of the golden age. The 300 acre Buckinghamshire Estate is home to 27 holes. Located just 5 miles from Windsor Castle, the palatial mansion and modern Pavillion is the centrepiece of the 5-star, award-winning hotel, spa and leisure resort.

Originally a sprawling estate with Capability Brown designed gardens, it was in 1908 that Harry Colt and CH Alison were called in to build the course which would complement both the existing gardens and stately home.

It is the Colt and Alison Nine's you'll want to play given the opportunity! The Colt Nine is the Front Nine and the Alison Nine the Back Nine. Recent renovations and bunker rejuvenation has taken place with liners and drainage installed to deal with the heavy London clay.
