Highly Recommended 2019

What the club says: The Gog Magog Golf Club, established in 1901, has been the favourite Cambridge golf club for top class amateur events having the special appeal of two top quality championship golf courses.

Set in the rolling East Anglia countryside among the legendary Gog Magog hills, these Cambridge golf courses afford superb all year round golf facilities with stunning views over Cambridge and across the fens of East Anglia to the majestic Ely Cathedral.

The Old Course -Home of the Lagonda Trophy
At 6398 Yards off the whites, the Old Course is more a test of accuracy than strength and be prepared for a challenging start as you steadily climb from the Clubhouse and take in the beautiful vista from the Gog Magog Hills.

Wandlebury Course - Open Regional Qualifying Course 2007 - 2011
Longer at 6735 yards, but perhaps less intimidating than the Old Course, at least while the trees are maturing, the Wandlebury presents more opportunities for using your fairway woods, although use of your sand wedge is unlikely to correspondingly diminish.

Excellent condition great course

As usual in excellent condition, greens were quick and true. Rough is high and wispy if you get too far off the fairway but it was good

Wandlebury Course

Really enjoyed the layout and the condition was great. Its clearly (in my opinion) the '2nd' course with the Old being the main course.
Probably slightly easier than the Old course in the sense the fairways are a bit wider and not as long.
Great course and drains well.
Give it a go.

The Golf Traveller

Played both courses in a day and was amazed by the condition for the time of year. While other courses are closed this venue has to be one of the best locations for winter golf in the country, no mud, great turf, and surprisingly quick greens. The improvements they are making to the practice facilities that are already as good as I have seen will make this an even better winter destination. The value for money of their winter deals is fantastic with a very friendly welcome and high quality foo, I can't wait for a game in the summer when I expect the greens will be even quicker.

Winter golf at it's best

2nd Jan 2020 - played the Old Course and it was magnificent. Despite recent rain the course was bone dry. The fairways were in great shape and the greens were fantastic for early January. The course is really interesting and is great fun with a real mixture of holes and some undulating greens!
A warm welcome from the Pro Shop and in the bar afterwards, and all for £32 on County cards. There is no better course and setup in the area. We'll be back again in the spring! Highly recommended.

Wandlebury Gog Magog

Originally planed to play the Old Course again but advised by a staff member to play the Wandlebury as the Old Course greens were being worked on.
It Was a good course layout in very good condition but I would say the Old Course is the better one. The staff in the shop and bar area were very good and welcoming.

Best courses in the region

The improvements made in the last two years at the Gog Magog golf club are substantial, returning the Old course to an open downland venue, excellent for running golf where players can enjoy the challenges of all types of shot rather than always reaching for the lob wedge and pitching on the green.
Playing the course just before the famous national amateur Lagonda trophy it was in excellent condition with the greens running smooth and fast. The short holes are the pick on this course and the unusual greens at the 8th and 11th make for an interesting challenge. Since the massive clearance program that removed most of the hawthorn that chocked parts of the course the views are significantly improved as well as the health of the course caused by the improved airflow. The best comes over the closing stretch with the signature 16th offering the best vista and a chance for long hitters to show their prowess. When you reach the clubhouse don’t forget to look at the Lagonda winners board in the dining room and compare your score with previous winners and world number ones Luke Donald and Lee Westwood. Needless to say ....they beat me, but I enjoyed a great test of golf.
