County champion: Matt Hill (Whitchurch, previously Leighton Buzzard). Handicap: +1
TOP 10:

Leighton Buzzard

Leighton Buzzard

The course has improved massively over the last few years and now has some of the best greens in the county. The final three holes are a real test of nerve before visiting the most welcoming bar around.
Green fees: £38 midweek only. Tel: 01525 244800.

John O'Gaunt (Gaunt)

John O’Gaunt (O’Gaunt)

A real test of skill and the narrow fairways and subtle greens make for a stern challenge. The par-3 10th is the star hole – 170 yards to a lightning fast green makes for a tricky par.
Green fees: £55 midweek, £50 weekends (after 3pm). Tel: 01767 260360.

The best course in the county for an ‘off season’ game owing to the fact it is in excellent condition throughout the year.

Dunstable downs

Dunstable Downs

My favourite starting hole in Beds is a fun par 5 with the fairway 100ft below the tee but put your hiking boots on for the physically demanding 8th hole, a 470-yard uphiller.
Green fees: £40. Tel: 01582 604472

A really enjoyable course with a fun finish. A great option for a full day’s golf with another 18 holes to explore on the other side of the main road!

Luton Hoo

The best stay-and-play venue in Beds with the longest par 3 in the county too – you’ll do well to walk off with par at the 271-yard 13th. Unlucky for many.
Green fees: £35 midweek, £42.50 weekends. Tel: 01582 734437.
