Wexham Park Golf Club – Buckinghamshire

I have manage to play all three courses at Wexham Park, the nine hole red course is tree-lined with a few good holes as you do have to think of where to put your tee shot along with the greens having multiple undulations on, in some place you could find yourself putting up a slope of 30 degrees or more.

The eighteen hole blue course is not particularly long and you could quite easily leave your woods at home, but it still provides a decent challenge. The fairways were in good condition and the bunkers had lovely soft sand in them.

The nine hole green course is really for beginners or anyone who just wants to have a quick practice, look out for the Wexham Park Hospital helicopter while negotiating this course.

Whiteleaf Golf Club – Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire

Whiteleaf is a very nice nine hole course set in the Chilterns, a little up and down in places but all the fairways are tree-lined with quite a lot of out of bounds to the right , not good for anyone who tends to slice the ball. The greens are not massive but about right for the size for the course and there are some blind approaches from a few of the fairways.

The staff at the club were very friendly, including the members I met during my round, the course was also in great shape for the time of year and being set on chalky ground it sure does drain well.

Pachesham Park Golf Club – Surrey

Pachesham Park Golf Club – Surrey

The facilities here are quite good for a 9 hole course, there is a range with a separate chipping area & the clubhouse is quite nice too. The course has a couple of sub 300 yard par 4’s but part from that it’s alright in length. The greens here run smoothly but are quite small so will test your approach shots, one thing we did notice though was that there were no signs for hole numbers making it difficult to see where the next hole is if you have not played here before.
