As we said earlier, it forms the base or neutral Slope Rating – a number that indicates a course of standard playing difficulty. The towering pine trees make each hole appear exceptionally tight. Indeed I was very impressed with the final third of the course which has a lovely mix of holes and requires both length and finesse. Because the setting lacks variety, this is a course more difficult to remember than many others. Leave the driver in the bag and enjoy that course for what it is. 0 people found this review helpful Holes: 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6: 7: 8: 9: Out Slope Rating Men Tee: 431: 172: 291: 457: 355: 482: 195: 323: 398: 3104 113 72 Par see website for detail: Tel No: 01908 370 756: Location: View Map: Website: www.woburn.co.uk It feels like it plays longer as one does not want to take a full swing on the tee shot, resulting in the approach shots being a bit longer than one might expect.

Your WHS handicap index is worked out to one decimal place and that number is calculated against that neutral Slope Rating of 113. That said it’s still a course where you must keep your ball in play! The condition of the course was not great either. An historic ridge – the remains of an ancient Danish settlement – runs diagonally across the hole and will push anything short and left into the forest. For me the Duchess is a far better course, and it's not even close. Charles Lawrie Plenty have raved appropriately. There are some solid holes on the Duchess, especially the par threes. Designed by , the Woburn golf course opened in 1928. Having played all three courses now, I’d easily have Marquess as the best (it’s a cracking course) but I would have Duchess and Dukes MUCH closer in the rankings. I've played there maybe 8 times so I can easily tell them all apart, but after 1 round you may struggle to distinguish the 11th from the 12th, or the 7th from the 13th. I expected to not like the Charles Lawrie designed course given the lack of variety in setting and the tightness of it, but in fact I found the course to be a lot of fun. endstream endobj startxref - the third as the green is too small for the hole.

I would certainly change the fifteenth to make it a par 4. - Fifteen is much too short for a par 5 to be of interest to even the best players. The Duchess starts off in scintillating fashion with a couple of absorbing holes and has a much better and compelling routing than the Duke’s. Woburn is a cracking club and if you’re looking for a 54 hole golf trip, an overnight stop here should be definitely be considered. Like The Dukes, the middle holes border on repetitive, with many similar holes, but due to the positions of the greens and the routing it does manage to keep intrigue and shaping shots into greens are often required.

If you manage to do this from the tee, then the rewards can be great as finding the small greens in regulation is no mean feat. Of the three Woburn courses, the Duchess' is the one that puts a high premium on the ability to hit the ball straight, making the Duchess' not so favourable to the big hitters. - The fourth has trees located in the fairway for the second shot (a pet peeve of mine). Overall, I felt the greens to be too similar. General Information. The trees actually detract from the visual of the course on several holes.

The par 5’s are short with the longest at 500 yards, and one par 5 (the fifteenth) only 464 yards. - Seventeen is a short par 4 dogleg left and the trees feel like they are closing in on you. It plays longer than its 435 yards, as the approach shot is played over a large drop and you need to carry it all the way to the green. It is flanked by Woburn's other shining gems - the Duke's and the Duchess' courses. - The eight, a medium-length par 4 seems to have a better setting for the green. h�bbd```b``�"3�d2�dI���I0y,�&M�"i6�&�T��V`YeY �H2r��2?

One would not have been surprised had this course somehow incorporated “forest” in its name as it likely deserves that descriptive word more than a few courses that do have “forest” in the names. What could bring me back (although my list of courses I have yet to play remains very long) would be if they removed some of the trees such as on the second hole and seventeen. Despite the course appearing in some top 100 lists, as well as some saying it is more difficult than the Duke’s course, this is a course I would not go back to play. Even with a 1300 tee time we had the course to ourselves, able to enjoy the experience of walking the tree lined fairways heavy with the scent of pine.
