What the club says: The fairways of the 6,963 yard Duke's course are lined with pine, silver birch and chestnut trees. The famous third hole is framed by rhododendron bushes and has recently been voted in the World's Top 500 Holes by Golf Magazine. Heather, bracken and gorse add to the charm of the course as well as the natural hazards of each hole.

World class courses, staff amazing, go there !

We saved our pennies to afford this world class venue and waited 6 months for it to arrive. The weather was superb which meant we got the best of this venue. The Dukes course, world class there is no need for other words, just absolute immaculate manicured world class golf course. Marquess lovely, longer and more open and immaculate too. We did not afford the Duchess but heard it was even better than the Marquess if you like a tight, thinking course. Club house superb, staff outstanding and such a aura of class around the place, I would go there again if we could guarantee the weather. Yes its expensive, but you can feel why, its been done properly and lives and breathes proper golf. The Dukes course, every hole is its own tranquil island of golf as you can't see any other holes when you play each one. If you can get a good weekend of weather and you want to play proper course, this is one you need to go to.

Excellent Track, some great holes.

An excellent course although they are going through a lot of improvements for the summer. Considering the rainfall and flooding in that area it seemed to be holding up not too badly at all. Some very scenic holes and some difficult but look easy holes as as well. Overall give it a try and you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic facility with 3 great courses

Starting with the clubhouse ? this is really good, and I've been here for various reasons, including on a training course organised by England Golf, so there is a lot more to the facility than most people are aware of. Conference rooms etc, and a few dining areas and little nooks where small societies can meet up for pre or after round get-togethers. The food is excellent, if a little expensive, but we were there to make a day of it, and had allowed for this extra cost. Changing rooms are large and clean, and well laid out. The pro-shop is very well stocked, but again a little on the expensive side; e.g. a plastic poker chip marker cost ?4.00, whereas most other courses I have got these for around ?2.00.
Everywhere we went, we were greeted with a smile, and all the staff were very helpful if we had any questions.

Practice facilities at Woburn are first class, so if you're playing any of the courses - give yourself time to check out what is available. I bought the course guide at a previous visit, and it was expensive at ?6 per course, and not particularly well designed (yardages from the back tees only) Distances on sprinkler heads are all to front of greens, and there is no system to show how far on the green the pins are.

We were greeted at the first tee by the starter, who asked if we had played the course before ? 6 of our party of 8 had done so, so he did not inundate us with information we were already aware of. We were advised that because of recent rain, the normal distribution of pin placements (which is shown on score cards) was not being used, so the holes had been cut wherever the greens were driest. He also advised us there was a group of 40 about 3 holes in front of us, and we almost caught them up on the par three 17th, but the pace of play was totally acceptable. Our party did include a couple of 20+ handicappers, so we were probably slower than we could normally be, and indeed around the end of our round, a group caught up with us. However; we never felt as if we were being rushed at any time.

As expected, the tees are perfect, and of a large enough size to keep moving the daily tees to keep them that way. Fairways were a little wet following some heavy rains during the week before we played, and resulting in very little run on the longest of Woburn?s 3 course. We were also advised at a previous visit that the Marquess is the worst draining of all 3 courses. The recent rains made the greens very receptive, but did little to slow down the puts, with a number of 3 putts being the result. The greens have some quite wicked slopes on them, not all of which are obvious until you see your ball taking an unexpected turn. I had a bad day with numerous bunker visits, starting at the 1st hole, but all the bunkers were perfectly raked, with a good layer of loose sand to play a proper bunker shot from. Those shots which dug took deep hit harder sand, and were punished because of that. I find the overall layout of the course to be very interesting, although being in the middle of many pines, I can understand if some visitors find each hole very similar.

We saw quite a few greenkeeping staff around, but none interfering with pace of play, which helped us concentrate on our game.

Overall, I like this course and would recommend and play again, but having now played it 3 times in a row, I think I would like to revisit the Duchess and Dukes courses on future visits

I should add to my review that this round was played quite some time after trying to fit in a free round (for 2 of us, with guests to make the party up to 8 players) following Marshalling duties at the AIG Womens Open in august 2019. Our first attempt to play came amid Covid problems in October 2020, and was then interrupted by thunder and lightning, resulting in waiting another year to fit the round in. Paid slightly less than member?s guest rate, as a consolation for the delays in getting our round in.
