Buckinghamshire - Best In County Golf Courses
 

The county of Buckinghamshire in south east England is one of the more affluent counties in England and its proximity to the capital is such that Eton Collegeís Dorney Lake, in the South Bucks district, was used as the rowing venue for Londonís 2012 Summer Olympics. 

The forty golf clubs in Buckinghamshire are affiliated to the Berks Bucks & Oxon Union of Golf Clubs and this body was founded in 1924, comprising 11 clubs from Berkshire, 12 from Buckinghamshire and 7 from Oxfordshire. Today, the total number of clubs in membership of the Union has more than quadrupled from the original 30 to 122. 

The Bucks County Ladiesí Golf Association 
was founded in 1923, with Lady Astor becoming its first President. As was the case with many associations back then, the Presidential position was automatically renewed on an annual basis and so Lady Astor remained in post until handing over the reins to her successor in 1965. Today, the association looks after the interests of female golfers in 42 member clubs, organising a number of annual competitions throughout the county.

The three championship courses at Woburn are far and away the best in the county. The Marquess was the newest layout to open at this wonderful golf facility in 1999 and itís also the highest rated, featuring regularly in our rankings of the Top 100 Golf Courses in Britain & Ireland. The Dukeís course debuted in 1974, five years before the Duchess appeared, and both courses complement the Marquess at Woburnís very classy 54-hole complex.

Stoke Park (Colt & Alison)
Stoke Park is surely one of the finest parkland golf courses in the South of England. With no heather here, the main line of defence is the abundance of huge stately trees and Coltís clever design.
