Ashridge Golf Club – course details:

An outstanding course that will test players of all ability.  The Club was officially opened in 1932 and has stood the test of time, it has regularly featured in the top 100 golf courses in the UK.  The Club has regularly hosted PGA events as well as County/Regional Championships for both Men & Ladies.

Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, on the border of Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, on the edge of the Chiltern Hills and within 40 miles of central London, the course once formed part of the Ashridge estate, once part of an enormous forest in which the owners of the estate and their guests hunted for deer and other game. Herds of deer still roam the course whilst the old mansion is now a Management College.  These days hunting is restricted to achieving the best possible score round the 6,678 yards and par of 72 course.

Ashridge Golf Club has long been associated with warm hospitality and the very best in golfing traditions. Indeed, today, as in the past, you are assured a warm welcome.  Many visitors comment that Ashridge has the best greens and best lunch in Hertfordshire!
