Stoke Park Club – Home of the Stoke Poges Course

Stoke Park Club is proud to provide one of the finest golf courses in the land: The Stoke Poges Course.

The club, formerly known as Stoke Poges Golf Club, has been recognised as the finest parkland course in England and attracts professional players from around the world, as well as celebrity visitors.

The Stoke Poges course has a rich history. It was laid out in 1908 by the prolific designer of British and European golf courses, Harry Shapland Colt, around the Grade I listed mansion, built a century earlier by James Wyatt for John Penn, in parkland designed by 'Capability' Brown (in 1750) and Humphry Repton (in 1795).

The course is long and has no fewer than eight par fours of more than 400 yards from the medal tees, the longest being the 9th at 454 yards. It remains largely as Colt designed it with the exception of the 15th and 16th holes, altered in recent years to enhance the championship layout. In 1910 the famous golf journalist Leslie Dobree wrote in his book, The Inland Golf Courses of Great Britain:

“I will content myself by writing a few appreciation's of the finest inland course in the British Isles – Stoke Poges. There are few courses where a player must sum up his position for every shot, and it is mainly for this reason that I think Stoke Poges is the very essence of first-class golf. I wish there were fifty more courses like Stoke Poges in the country.”

As well as being a challenging and demanding course you will find it hard not to be stirred by the exquisite views and landscapes at Stoke Park Club.

“Longevity and history do not necessarily make for a great golf course but in the case of Stoke Park it becomes immediately apparent why this layout has withstood the considerable test of time. It got off to a good start when the original landlord called on Harry Colt to offer his services as a designer. It does have Colt’s finest single hole (the seventh at Stoke Park), a short par three upon which the notorious twelfth at Augusta was modelled.”
