Facilities
5* Hotel, Superb and unrivalled clubhouse facilities (housed in a Grade I listed Palladian Mansion). The Pavilion - separate building housing the gymnasium, tennis courts, swimming pool, steam rooms and spas. Extensive golf practice areas plus Golf Academy.
Description
Stoke Park Golf Club and estate dates back to the Doomsday Book, when King William I presented it to William de Stoke (who subsequently gave it his name). Queen Elizabeth I owned the estate between 1581 and 1603, and King Charles I was held prisoner there in 1647. The lakes were designed in 1750 by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, whilst much of the Club¹s present parkland was created during the 1790s by the eighteenth century¹s other great landscape designer, Humphrey Repton. The clubhouse, originally the private home of the Penn family (founders of Pennsylvania), this Grade I Palladian Mansion was designed by the architect to King George III, James Wyatt, and completed in 1795. Within the 50,000 square foot building are the Club's 21 bedrooms, main administration offices, golf changing rooms, Club Shop, The Park Restaurant, President's Bar, Orangery, Fountain Room, Wyatt Room, Ballroom, Pen Bar, Buckingham Room, Repton Room, Chalfont Room, Library, Chapel, and Polo Lounge. The Pavilion, completed in 2002 comprises a gymnasium, two studios, three indoor carpet tennis courts, indoor swimming pool, SPA SPC, steam rooms, changing rooms for Health and Health & Racquet Members and spa visitors, Mortimers Hair Salon, San Marco, and supervised crèche and under eights' playroom. Possibly the finest meeting and events venue in the UK, Stoke Park Club is ideal for executive meetings, corporate entertaining, product launches and private celebrations. There are eight elegant private rooms, which all have fine antiques, natural lighting, works of art and exquisite views of the estate. Encircling the Club's 350 acre Buckinghamshire parkland estate, the historic 27 hole Championship golf course, known as Stoke Poges, is undisputedly one of the finest parkland courses in the country. Created in 1908 by eminent golf architect Harry Shapland Colt, the Stoke Poges course has been the inspiration for many of the world¹s most famous holes, including Augusta¹s infamous 12th at the centre of Amen Corner. Individual visitors are only allowed as resident at the hotel. Society and Corporate Golf days are however welcome (minimum of 8 players).

As expected fantastic facility

Everything you would expect from a course with a green fee in excess of £100. Not sure you'll find a better club house but you may find a better course in this price bracket, not that I can be that critical. The 7th is a gem!

Golf as it should be....

You know, as soon as you drive through the front gates you are going to have a good day. The manicured lawns, idyllic setting, ancient bridges and the greeting at The Clubhouse, tells you everything your need to know. Polite, well mannered staff help you with everything you need and the surroundings and food are excellent!

The course itself is dominated by the famous clubhouse in sight from five or more holes but it is most notably known for its starring role in the James Bond movie 'Goldfinger', where 'Oddjob' throws his steel bladed bowler hat at 007 across the 18th green, missing and decapitating the marble statue. However, less well known is the Par 3 - 8th, which was the inspiration for the one and only 'Amen Corner' at Augusta.

I won't rattle on about the fantastic greens and well sculptured fairways as this is a given for any course that charges £150+ to play. Fortunately though I was a guest on a corporate golf day and therefore did not require the small mortgage required to play here.

Of course, I would play here every week if I could but until that lottery win, I will just say, if you get invited to play here - you will not be disappointed!

Trilby Tour Pre Qualifier

Played here today in the above - £60 as opposed to the standard green fee of £145! Although, I didn't play well I really enjoyed the course and surroundings, which often feature on TV in Charity/Corporate type events. Parkland; very well maintained; good bunkering; excellent water features. The par 3s are outstanding. Many beautiful vistas. I would happily pay £60 to play here again, and would hope to score better next time around. I certainly recommend at the right price.

Film star venue

Stand on the 16th tee and take a panoramic shot. You couldn't ask for a more attractive environment for golf. Come on a corporate budget or bring a fat wallet, but you will enjoy it. The clubhouse is elegant, the service traditional and discrete and the whole thing oozes class. The course itself is very playable and, like a good corporate venue, the fairways are wide, the bunkers laid back a bit and the greens hard to 3-putt. You'll mostly be distracted from your game by the beauty of the surroundings, or else the bill you'll be picking up later. But if somebody else ie paying...
