Played late March on a free round for being a marshall at the British Masters in 2015. The Marquess was the only Woburn course I had not played, and 3 of us took it on in slightly wet conditions.

Warned by the starter that this is the worst draining course of the 3, we found it quite long, and hilly enough for my electric trolley to be almost drained at the end.

Tees and greens were obviously excellent. Fairways less so, with some patchwork apparent. We were also told it was being prepared for the Ricoh Ladies Open at the end of July, so it has some time to get up to scratch.

Only visited one bunker, but it was perfect. Greens were very quick, and with some vicious slopes, resulting in 38 putts for me.

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. Course guide 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.

I love the courses, but overall they are too expensive for the average club golfer; especially pensioners like me!

A true test for all levels of players on such an impressive course. Tight fairways call for a good, preferably straight, to give yourself a chance of hitting the green in 2 on the Par 4s. Strategically placed bunkers are not always visible on your approach shot to the green, so course management is a necessity. The greens are excellent and not always the easiest to read, whilst being very fast.

I cannot speak highly enough about this golf club, it just oozes class without the snootiness that some golf clubs breed. Friendly helpful staff create such a welcome feeling and the marshals are a big comfort and always happy to have a chat.

The course is stunning. The first 5 holes are as good a start as I have ever played. Walking up the 4th feels like playing Augusta. The fairways are like a carpet and the green are perfectly true. Between holes 7 and 11, the course becomes more like a great course instead of a world class one but nearly all the holes challenge something different.
The feeling from the members was fine but some of the green staff and people around the club seemed less friendly and sterile, more so the management than the pro and waiting staff.

I played the Marquess yesterday as part of the IL Stein foundation charity day. What an absolute pleasure to play a course of this standard - easily the best course I've ever played. The layout is incredible - a real test of your golfing ability with it playing very long but also needing good course management.

Marquess Course

I had been to Woburn a few times to watch Pro Tournaments - most recently the Women’s British Open - and always thought it would be fantastic to play here, so was delighted to be asked to take part in a charity golf day on the same course, just 3 weeks later.

Obviously it looks a lot different without the grandstands, but imagine the tall pines that line most holes as spectators and you could almost be playing on Tour.... until you reach the green and realise that your game is nowhere near that level!

Understanding those greens is key to playing well on this course. But the Pro’s have caddies who know this and they are able to send their ball to the right place. If you’re above the hole, 3 putts are always a danger as it’s hard to read the subtle breaks which can send your ball way off track, or off the green one time for me!

After the round I heard someone say they had 15 x 3-putts, which made us all feel better, but it does make you realise just how talented the Professionals are.... although on the way to winning the WBO, Hinako Shibuno did 4-putt the 3rd hole in her final round!

Woburn is everything I expected and more. Yes, it costs more to play here but this was a truly memorable day, superbly organised by a charitable trust that I’m very pleased to have been able to support.

Marquess and Dukes

Brilliant condition for the time of year, greens as close to perfect as you can get, BUT... no pin positions given at the start of the rounds, and no coloured flags to indicate. Not what you expect when you spend a fair few quid on a green fee.

Absolutely beautiful course and club. Would love to play the other 2 courses. Every bit as good as I was hoping. No bad holes whatsoever, for me the 4th takes some beating, uphill dogleg left in complete tree-lined seclusion, completely stunning hole. Condition of the course excellent throughout. It's long and difficult but that doesn't spoil the enjoyment one iota. I actually played OK for a high handicapper, my score would have been nearer 97 on the courses I usually play.

Wonderful course which oozes class. While not as tight as the Duchess, every hole is tree lined and errant tee shots generally punished. Great variety of holes. Greens are fast, true and sloping (downhill putts can be terrifying). A must play for anyone who loves their golf.

What a treat to play any of the 3 courses at Woburn. The Duchess is shorter but very pretty with dense tree lined fairways. You very rarely will see through to another hole until you finish the hole you are playing. The Dukes has some lovely winding holes and opens up a bit on one or two holes on the back 9. There's no let up with the Marquess either. It looks as though its been there for 100 years but is in fact the youngest of the 3 courses and is the likely pick for future championships.

Quality oozes from Woburn from the club house to the courses. The Marquess did not disappoint. Some stunning holes and best maintained course I have played this year. Par 5 7th with its split fairway is a treat on the eye and the par 4 9th is also beautifully crafted into the landscape.

Played the Dukes in the morning and Marquess in the afternoon on a cold, wet and windy day. The course was in excellent condition with very fast greens. This course was a different level of quality compared to other courses played and I would recommend if you get the oportunity to play it then dont miss out.

Marquess was my favourite of the two courses played with a more 'stadium' layout with wider fairways but more agressive pin positions and greens contours in comparision ot the Dukes with very tight fairways, positional play required and more forgiving but still lighting fast greens

Needed a week there to realy enjoy and experience playing the courses in the best way

Golfshake Team ReviewWow

Was lucky enough to be invited to play the Marquees course with a member and the place just oozes class.

Everything is immaculate - Tee boxes, Fairways, Bunkers, Greens.

The course isn't easy. Plays quite long, especially during winter, but what a feast of golf. Now keen to go back and play the other 2 courses.

Simply outstanding.
