Top 10 Golf Courses - Bedforshire

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. 

beds and county golf club

Beds & County

About as windy as golf in Bedfordshire gets and great for year-round golf. With out of bounds to the right of the first 10 holes, make sure to aim left!
Green fees: £30 midweek, £35 weekends. Tel: 01234 352617.


Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands

A short course, but with some tough holes around the turn it will test even the best course management.
Green fees: £40 midweek, £56 weekends. Tel: 01908 583596.

The bedford

The Bedford

The best course in the county for an ‘off season’ game owing to the fact it is in excellent condition throughout the year.
Green fees: £40 midweek, £56 weekends. Tel: 01234 320022.

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


John O’Gaunt (Carthagena)

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!
Green fees: £55 midweek, £50 weekends (after 3pm). Tel: 01767 260360. 

Luton Hoo golf

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.

Pavenham Park

Pavenham Park

With some of the most entertaining greens around, it is well worth paying a visit though it’s probably best played in spring.
Green fees: From £20.Tel: 01234 822202.

South beds

South Beds

Home to one of the toughest opening stretches in the county. Play the first four well and you can make a decent score.
