The Buckinghamshire Course Review
The Buckinghamshire hosted an inaugural World Golf Championship in the UK, in the mid 90’s, and more recently played host to the Seniors Tour end of season Tour Championships.
Situated 1 mile from Junction 1 of the M40, although it’s hard to believe it, when you are out in the tranquil surrounds of huge oak trees and gently flowing rivers.
The route to the practice ground has to be the prettiest over a low swing suspension bridge, across the 30yd wide river Tame.
Ambassador and Non-Executive Director of Golf, former Ryder Cup player and multi tournament winner John O’Leary, along with Director of Golf Paul Schunter and their staff create a fabulous personal feel around the Buckinghamshire Club.
The course was designed by the world renowned golf coach John Jacobs, in gently rolling countryside, surrounding the village of Denham.
The Clubhouse is a magnificently restored 17th Century country house.
Off the Championship tees the course is a big challenge at over 7,000yds, with streams, rivers and water hazards never far away.
Off the more moderate members tees it’s a gentle stroll of 6,500yds.
The signature hole is the 8th, a 360yd par 4 doglegging around a lake; the carry however can vary as to the tee positions from the teasing 195yds to a carry that even the mighty Tiger would not take on!
All in all a well balanced fabulous test of golf, always in terrific condition and a true gem – www.BuckinghamshireGC.co.uk
