England, United Kingdom
Stoke Park, Britain’s leading Hotel, Spa and Country Club, is set among 300 acres of glorious parkland, lakes, historic gardens and monuments created over the past one thousand years, and is the perfect place to enjoy life in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Encircling the 300-acre Buckinghamshire parkland estate, the famous 27-hole golf course is one of the finest parkland courses in England which features three loops of nine.
Created in 1908 by Harry Colt, each course has undergone major bunker refurbishment work in recent years, and has been the inspiration for many of the world’s most famous holes, including Augusta’s infamous 16th. In 1998, Stoke Park reopened the Lane Jackson course after reacquiring 70 acres of parkland and restoring nine-holes originally created by Colt. The Alison & Colt courses combine to form the main 18-hole course which has seen many impressive rounds in its prestigious history, including James Bond’s epic golfing duel in the 1964 classic 007 movie ‘Goldfinger’. Stoke Park also offers fantastic practice facilities including a putting green located in-front of the iconic clubhouse; double-ended practice range; new short-game area built to USGA specification and an indoor swing studio featuring video analysis and Trackman technology.
Stoke Park is also the European headquarters for the David Leadbetter Golf Academy with seven teaching professionals on site. Situated only 35 minutes from central London and 11km from London Heathrow, Stoke Park offers luxurious five AA Red Star accommodation; an award winning spa; 13 tennis courts and three restaurants, including the three AA Rosette fine dining restaurant, Humphry’s.
