About the Club

Whittlebury Park Golf & Country Club was once part of the Royal Whittlewood Forest which stretched for miles and many of the mighty oak trees within the park have stood proud for more than a thousand years, during which time the park has been a Royal Hunting Forest and home to red deer. Also within the grounds of the estate is the site of a stoneage hill fort, a Roman road and dwellings mentioned in the doomsday book. All of the attributes add to the rich history of this ancient park.

 

At the end of the 19th Century the park has its own private 9 hole golf course, but at the outset of World War 1, landowners were encouraged to plough land in order to grow much needed crops, and the course was given up.

 

For most of the 20th Century the Estate was a working farm before being transformed in 1991 to become the 36 hole Championship Golf Course available today. With a little detective work, details of the course were uncovered at the library in St.Andrews; it was reconstructed, and is named the ‘1905’ course in memory of its original heyday. Play was by invitation only and a carriage was sent to Towcester railway station to collect guests, a local caddy was provided, and a golden guinea was expected as contribution towards the upkeep of the course.

 

The 1905 course stands within the oak parkland close to the other 3 courses, the Royal Whittlewood, the Grand Prix and the Wedgewood.
