The Duke's Course

Following the huge popularity of the Prince’s Course, a second 18-hole course was built in 1925.

Host to the PGA® Surrey Championship, The Duke’s Course is a longer, more challenging layout, with plenty of water hazards and demanding tee shots.

Go to hole #1

18 holes. 6321 yards. Par 71.

Hole #1

Par 4 | 361 yards

A gentle par 4 eases you into the start of your round on the Duke’s Course.

The opening hole is one of the few on the course without bunkers, so a great chance to secure an early birdie.

Hole #2

Par 4 | 304 yards

After a straightforward opening hole, things start to get spicy with a classic risk/reward decision.

Hit your Sunday best and you’ll be left with just a chip to the green. But, if you’re off course then a lost ball is a certainty.

Image link

Hole #3

Par 4 | 307 yards

The first challenge is to cross the ditch. It’s less than 170 yards away, but a headwind can bring it into play.

You’ll then be left with a uphill approach shot, so take one club more.

Image link

Hole #4

Par 4 | 409 yards

Only the bravest will attempt to carry the ditch from the tee, which is over 260 yards from the back tee.

A lay up means a long iron approach, but there’s plenty of room to land short and run it onto the green.

Hole #5

Par 4 | 404 yards

That same ditch you’ve hopefully avoided on the last couple of holes comes back to taunt you.

It’s an awkward distance from the tee, so play your percentage game to avoid a cardwrecker.

Image link

Hole #6

Par 4 | 332 yards

This short par 4 looks like an easy par on paper. But hugging the entire length of the fairway is out of bounds on the right and trees on the left.

A raised green means a lofted approach is needed to stay on the putting surface. Not such a walkover, huh?

Image link

Hole #7

Par 3 | 177 yards

The first par 3 on the course catches most golfers out, as it plays longer than it looks.

Play at least one club more than you think… trust us on this one!

Image link

Hole #8

Par 4 | 410 yards

The biggest hitters will want to fly the copse of trees on the right. The reward will be a short shot into the green.

Otherwise play to the corner of the dogleg, making sure not to overshoot.

Image link

Hole #9

Par 4 | 347 yards

A ditch crosses fairway 270 yards from the tee, so could be in play depending on how far you rip your big stick.

No need for heroics though – the green is easily reachable in regulation for most.

Image link

Hole #10

Par 3 | 189 yards

Your choice of tee platform completely changes the character of this par 3. Be sure to consider the position of the pin on this long, skinny green.

Plenty of greenside bunkers are ready to collect an errant shot.

Image link

Hole #11

Par 4 | 316 yards

Another short par 4 on paper, but position is everything from the tee.

Aim to the left side of the fairway to avoid your approach shot being blocked by trees.

Image link

Hole #12

Par 5 | 520 yards

The first of two par 5s is only reachable in two if your drive clears the ditch. But at 280 yards carry from the tee, this is only an option reserved for the few.

The fairway follows the boundary of the Park, where you may well catch a glimpse of its famous deers.

Image link

Hole #13

Par 4 | 433 yards

Surprise, surprise. The infamous ditch is back again, this time slap bang within landing distance from the tee.

There’s no real danger as you approach the green, so club selection from the tee is vital for par.

Image link

Hole #14

Par 4 | 433 yards

A long, sweeping par 4 has plenty of fairway to aim at, but make sure you don’t drift too far left.

The perfect line is the shelter to the right, with a touch of draw. Over to you…

Image link

Hole #15

Par 4 | 385 yards

A straightaway par 4 with its wide fairway encouraging you to light one up from the tee.

Don’t go too far off course, as trees left and right are ready to receive your errant drive.

Image link

Hole #16

Par 3 | 158 yards

A gorgeous little par 3 tucked away in a quiet corner of the course. This is a haven for some of the Park’s wildlife, so you may well spot a fox or two.

A cunning choice of club will line up a birdie chance.

Image link

Hole #17

Par 5 | 489 yards

Play from the white tees and you’ll have a genuine birdie chance, providing you steer clear of the dense treeline that runs the full length of the fairway.

The yellow tees converts this hole into a long par 4. A fairway bunker guards an approach that comes up short, so club up.

Image link

Hole #18

Par 4 | 347 yards

Homeward bound! The final hole is a fun ‘risk it all’ par 4. But before you reach for the driver, think about the danger lurking from every angle.

Hole out and head to the 19th hole. Will you be celebrating an eagle, or commiserating a card-wrecker?
