Whittlebury golf courses offers 36 holes, benefitting from 4 loops of 9 holes, each with their own unique character and STRI & USGA accredited greens, playable in any combination, means you do not have to play the same round of golf twice.
For most of the 20th Century the estate was a working farm before being transformed in 1991 to become the 36 hole Championship Golf Course available today. With a little detective work, details of the course were uncovered at the library in St.Andrews.
The course was reconstructed, and is named the 1905 Course in memory of its original heyday. Play was by invitation only; a carriage was sent to Towcester railway station to collect guests, a local caddy was provided and a golden guinea was expected as contribution towards the upkeep of the course.
The 1905 Course stands within the oak parkland close to a further 3 courses: the Royal Whittlewood, the Grand Prix and the Wedgewood.
Royal Whittlewood Course
Plays around the remaining copses of the ancient Royal Whittlewood Forest, home to an abundance of flora and fauna, which made the forest a favourite hunting ground of Medieval Kings.
Grand Prix Course
This plays over the gently undulating grassland adjacent to the world famous Silverstone Motor Racing Circuit, with interesting lake features and wildlife sanctuaries providing many testing holes.
A golf course built on the Whittlebury estate in 1905, where golfers will enjoy playing between the magnificent old oak trees and lakes in the parkland.
The Wedgewood has both testing par 3’s and par 4’s of a high standard of design and construction, maintained to the same level of excellence as the other three courses on the estate. This makes it ideal for bringing on and improving the “shot making skills” of the novice, yet offering an interesting challenge to experienced players.
