We're doing our bit to keep you safe

Your safety and welfare is our top priority

All Glendale Golf Centres have now reopened. Golf has always been an enjoyable leisure pursuit for many. In this post-lockdown world, the physical and mental heath benefits offered by sporting activities have never been more valuable. Golf is incredibly well placed for those looking for a safe way to exercise, escape the house and spend time in nature.

However, we must tip toe back towards normality. Golf will become a great tonic for many, but we must ask all customers to help us to keep our golf venues safe and open for business, by adhering to the safety measures that we have put in place for everybody.

Prince's Course

Opened in 1923 by HRH Prince of Wales, the Prince’s Course was commissioned as part of a scheme to get more people enjoying golf. It’s the shorter of our two 18-hole courses and offers wonderful elevated views of Richmond Park and beyond. From the upper part of the course you can see the imposing White Lodge, now home to the Royal Ballet School.

Duke's Course

Following the huge popularity of the Prince’s Course, a second 18-hole course was built in 1925. The Duke’s Course is longer, more challenging layout, with plenty of water hazards and demanding tee shots. Home of the PGA Surrey Championship in 2013, the course has since been completely redesigned following a £multi-million improvement project by Glendale Golf.
