Richmond Park Golf Course



Opened in 1923 by HRH Prince of Wales, the Prince's Course was built to provide the public with an opportunity to enjoy a fine golf course within London, at a time when golf was very exclusive. It proved so popular that two years later the Duke's Course was built. 90 years on and the Prince's and Duke's courses are still just as popular with golfers from all over the world. You don't need to be a member to play at Richmond Park Golf Course - green fees start at just £14.

We often get asked 'which is the better of the two courses?'. It really is down to personal choice as the quality of and presentation is the same on both courses. Each course has its own distinct character - see below for a summary of each course, to help you decide which one you'd prefer to play.


The Prince's Course is the shorter of our two courses (5487 yards, par 68) and more undulating, with wonderful elevated views over Richmond Park's 3000 acres and beyond.  Rebuilt in 2013/14, following a two-year course improvements programme, The Prince's features modern design characteristics such as newly constructed greens to USGA specification and new bunkers/water hazards.

The Prince's signature hole is the new par-4 18th - playing just under 300 yards it's a true 'risk and reward' scenario! Big hitters can take on the green, but an easy birdie can quickly turn into a card-wrecker with plenty of water hazards and bunkers awaiting an errant drive.

Due to it's shorter length and wide fairways, the Prince's Course is often preferred by less experienced golfers, or golfers wanting a round with less challenges.

The Duke's Course is the longer of our two courses (6369 yards, par 71). It's located on the lower part of the estate that adjoins Richmond Park, so it really feels that you're playing golf within a unique natural setting. The Duke's Course features many water hazards and the park's ancient brook. The Duke's retains several similarities to the original course built in 1923 and regarded by many as the 'championship course' due to its length and more challenging nature.

The Duke's was home to the Virgin Atlantic PGA Surrey Open in 2013, with the region's top professionals taking on its demands. The signature hole is the par-5 12th. This double-dogleg runs alongside Richmond's ancient Beverley Brook and the green is in reach of two well-struck, perfectly placed shots.

The Duke's Course demands longer tee shots to carry ditches and rough, so is often preferred by more experienced golfers who are looking for a challenge.
