The Prince's Course

Opened in 1923 by HRH Prince of Wales, the Prince’s Course was commissioned by the Crown as an initiative to encourage more people to enjoy golf, after the devastation of the First World War.

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.

The 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 a 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.

FAQs

When do the golf courses open/close?

The courses open 7-days a week between 06:00 – 07:30 depending on the time of year. They shut at dusk every evening.

Can anyone book a round?

We welcome everyone – you do not have to be a member to play. If you are a newcomer to golf then we recommend that you take golf lessons before book a round. Golf is an amazing activity, but you’ll enjoy a lot more if you pick up the basics first.

Do I have to bring my own clubs?

We normally provide sets of quality rental clubs, but due to current COVID safety measures we are asking all customers to bring their own equipment.

Do I have to book to use driving range?

No, there’s no need to book a bay. Simply turn up and purchase a bucket of balls from the contactless dispenser, which accepts all debit & credit cards except Amex.

Is parking available?

Yes there is plenty of free parking, right next to the clubhouse.

Is there a dress code on the golf courses?

No, unlike many clubs, we don’t believe in dress codes. Just wear whatever is comfortable – just remember you’ll be outdoors for several hours, so pack some waterproofs and something warm. We recommend golf shoes as they offer much more grip in all weathers, but trainers are fine too.

Are golf buggies available to rent?

We have a large fleet of rental buggies. We advise you to reserve your buggy online when you book your tee time. Due to current COVID safety measures, we do not allow more than one person per buggy, even if you are from the same household (the exception to this rule is parent/child under 16 years).
