About The Course
The course at Stoke Park is probably the finest example of parkland golf in the British Isles. The Buckinghamshire estate dates back to the Norman Conquest, but much of the surroundings today can be attributed to the giants of eighteenth-century landscape architecture, Capability Brown and Humphry Repton. It is on this gently rolling, elegant canvas that an architectural titan of a different nature was called upon to design a golf course.
An article on Stoke Park in The Country Gentleman's Newspaper, dated 12th June 1909, reads:
"As to the course itself, fortune seems to have been very kind - The ground is undulating, while some natural hazards are as sporting as one could wish to see. With such advantages as these to start with it is not to be wondered that Harry Colt has been able to construct a fine and testing golf course."
About Stoke Park
Encircling the club's 300 acre Buckinghamshire parkland estate, the famous 27 hole Championship golf course, is undisputedly one of the finest parkland courses in the country. Created in 1908 by eminent golf architect Harry Colt, the Stoke Park course has been the inspiration for many of the world's most famous holes, including Augusta's infamous 16th.
The course itself has seen many impressive rounds in its prestigious history, including the first PGA Matchplay tournament in 1910 and James Bond's epic golfing duel in the 1964 classic 007 movie 'Goldfinger'.
