Highly Recommended 2018

What the club says: Chiltern Forest Golf Club nestles in the Chiltern Hills on the edge of Wendover Woods. The course is challenging for all golfers and boasts some of the finest views in Buckinghamshire. Chiltern Forest is a friendly members club with excellent facilities and a warm welcome awaits all visitors.

Although the course is only 5760 yards long off the white tees, don't be fooled! It plays every yard of that due to the hilly nature of the course. Try reaching the par 4 9th in two shots; your approach shot to the 16th green is all uphill, so you will need to carry it the whole way.

Fantastic course, well worth the visit

Brilliant course. Amazing views, with the majority of the holes feeling 'stand alone', framed by trees. Not the longest course but challenge is still there! Course was in excellent condition (apart from a bit of burrowing damage by badgers on a couple of holes). The members were also very friendly. Highly recommend this course.

Excellent, but hilly location

Lovely and interesting course, but it is very hilly. We had buggies which helped and it would be tiring. But whilst short, its very tight, some really lovely holes (especially 11 and 12) and greens were excellent. Plus all staff really friendly.

Uneven in every way.

Firstly, this is a very hilly course, so although it's not that long it's a tough walk. I walked both times I've been but it seemed that most of the others on the course were in buggies. I guarantee you'll wish you had one when you're walking up the 16th.

Unfortunately it's also a uneven course in other ways. I've played here a couple of times now and came away both times with the same impression - it would be a really good course as a 12-14 holer (and as a 9-hole course it could be amazing).

In places it's as good as it gets, in some places it's fair to middling, and a couple of holes are downright poor. I particularly like the run of holes from 2-7 and then again from 11-15. Some holes I really, really, disliked; the 8 in particular (ridiculous design, ugly from the tee, and spoils the course imo) although the 15th and 16th I would also gladly skip if possible. The condition of the course is a bit variable too. In places it's lush and velvety, and in others places a bit patchy and poor. Also, too many tees were off mats for my liking.

This could be a great course, and is now in places, but too many poor holes and a few rough corners drag it down overall.

The welcome from everyone was very good when we arrived but by the time we finished the clubhouse was closed, so I can't really comment on the food and drink as both times I've been here I've not really had the chance to try them out.

Overall a good course, but could be much, much better.

Hidden gem in Chiltern Hills

This is a short, challenging and picturesque course. Being on chalk it is well drained, and it is wooded so you need to play straight. It is hilly, so you feel you've had a good walk at the end of a round. Buggies available, best to book in advance. Lovely clubhouse facilities, and very welcoming staff and members.

Very attractive setting even as you drive in. Nicely setup, nets and putting green at hand, flags colour coded, well signed. Most holes are very attractively tree lined, several are stunning, genuinely bring a Woburn or Brocket Hall to mind. And after a tough summer, fairways are surprisingly lush, greens soft and decently quick.
There are too many short par 4’s, the first in particular needs a rethink. That said, the extreme gradients take care of plenty of holes that might not look a challenge on paper. Greenkeeper needs to be aware that having a walkie talkie on full blast near golfers isn’t a great idea.
Much tidier than Dunstable, good value, doesn’t seem to get too busy, friendly staff. Deserves its lofty ranking on here, will be back.

Fantastic little course, some really interesting holes.

It is very hilly though, so be prepared to play a few shots out of breath.

Will be back!

Hilly course in excellent condition

A very hilly course cut through woodland giving far reaching views over some beautiful countryside. The course is tight with some interesting crossovers for the fairways but in excellent condition with the greens fast and true.
