Our golf course, known as Stoke Poges, was designed by Harry Shapland Colt. It was opened in July 1908 and received immediate acclaim:- “If there were no palatial clubhouse and no beautiful gardens and grounds, the course itself would take a great deal of beating anywhere within thirty miles of London. Colt, to whom belongs the credit of designing it, has scored a great success and his reputation as a green architect, already high, will be greatly enhanced by this the latest of his works.” (Golf Illustrated, 1909).
The course has stood the test of time: “Longevity and history do not necessarily make for a great golf course but in the case of Stoke Poges 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 Colt to offer his services as a designer.... it does have Colt’s finest single hole (the seventh), a short par three upon which the notorious twelth at Augusta was modelled.” (Today’s Golfer, 1992).
The exceptionally high quality of the greens, which have been consistently maintained, are a particular feature of the course. In November 2005 Golf World chose the course within the “Top 100 Courses in the World”, however, Stoke Park is about more than just a great course, with the traditions, events, competitions and atmosphere created over 100 years in the true sense of the word.
