Gerrards Cross Golf Club is a members’ club, it is committed to maintaining the traditions and values of the game. Of these, the most important to members and staff alike is ensuring a warm welcome to visitors and guests. Your enjoyment of your day at Gerrards Cross Golf Club is our primary concern. The well appointed clubhouse, excellent catering and a course which offers a challenge to all levels of golfer help ensure a great day out.
The course was built in 1922 in the grounds of an ancient estate. Many majestic trees, the Luytens designed cottage and the ha-ha by the 18th green are legacies from that era. You will find a testing woodland course in excellent condition and although there are one or two steep hills to negotiate, the walking is not too demanding. Many holes give a wonderful feeling of isolation whilst others offer some splendid views of the surrounding countryside. The view from the clubhouse terrace of the 1st and 18th holes is one without equal in the County.
The Club enjoys strong Junior and Ladies sections and has a number of County level players. There are club teams at varying handicap levels and many “roll-ups” which enable new members to quickly integrate into the Club. There is a varied social programme throughout the year which should appeal to most tastes.
A progressive and on-going development policy has seen the installation of fairway watering, the extension of the dining room and kitchen to cater for 100 diners and the recent refurbishment of the lounge.
Highly qualified and popular teaching staff are available for lessons and advice on the wide range of equipment stocked in the professional’s shop.
Within twenty miles of Central London and three miles of the M40, the Club is easily accessible. There is ample car parking and the Club enjoys excellent practice facilities.
The course measures 6,212 yards from the white tees with the 7th being the only par 5. The green is out of range in two for all but the mightiest hitters. The course par of 69 provides a good test of golf, confirmed by a SSS of 70.
The four Par 3 holes are different in character. The 5th,13th and 16th require full carry drives to take rough and bunkers out of play, while the 8th is a little more forgiving. None can be taken for granted as a routine par and anyone recording par threes on all four will have played some excellent golf. The steep uphill 5th is remembered by visitors as a hole which demands a long accurate shot and considerable stamina!
The views across the Misbourne valley from the elevated tees at the 2nd and 18th tees are a delight. The 18th in particular is a memorable finishing hole and certainly the most difficult in the county. It demands a well-placed drive and second shot from a downhill lie over the River Misbourne which is only a few yards short of the green.. Reaching the green safely in two shots would be the highlight of any visit but is only a dream for most high handicap golfers.
