Chiltern Forest Golf Club nestles in the Chilterns on the edge of Wendover Woods. It is close to the A41, with the dual carriageway leading to the M25 only 15 minutes away. The M1 and M40 motorways are also in close proximity.
Golf has been played on this site since 1894. Originally, it was a 6 hole course developed by the Rothschild family. However, at the time of the First World War it was taken over by the RAF who developed the course into 9 holes. It was purchased by the members in 1979 who have since further developed the course. There is now a challenging and beautiful 18 hole course together with a modern clubhouse.
Take on a real golfing challenge. The Badger, a 160 yard par 3, is featured in the book "The 100 Most Extraordinary Holes in England"
We have an excellent Restaurant and well stocked wine cellar and bar. Facilities are first rate and served by a professional team.
One of the feature holes is the 8th; a 147 yard uphill par 3 called 'The Badger' on account of the numerous badger sets dug into the steep bank. Be sure to take a couple of extra clubs as the locals will testify it plays more like 190 than 150 yards.
The other feature hole is the par 4 16th. Again a steep rise confronts the approach shot, which can play as much as a five wood for the average hitter.
After a round the excellent clubhouse is the perfect place to relax. Recently refurbished and extended, it offers absolutely stunning views over Mentmore and the surrounding countryside as far as Dunstable...well worth a visit for the vista alone.
