What we say
Fine, mature James Braid layout though no stroll in the park even if it is majestically plotted within the striking Fitzwilliam Estate. It’s highly challenging - this is course that can test every part of your game. Right from the start, you have to hit an accurate tee shot with a three or five wood and then a deadly long iron to get into position for the approach to the green. It's tricky par 5. The par 3s are all superb and the back nine is particularly good. The 10th is a classic par 4 and anyone reachinf rhe green in two has done very well. There's a huge dip in front of the putting surface and you need to get your ball in the right part of the green to stand a chance of a two-putt. Then, it just keeps throwing great holes at you. The 18th is a great finish with water to the right and a bunker stretching across the fairway. The course is definitely worth playing...
Peterborough Milton Golf Club has a fine, well-established par 71 parkland golf course set in the grounds of the Fitzwilliam Estate, with many of the holes being played in full view of Milton Hall. Originally a nine-hole golf course within the grounds and used by the 6th Earl of Fitzwilliam for family and friends, an 18 hole golf course, designed by James Braid, was opened in June 1938 to avoid urban development. The original thatched clubhouse still stands, looking up the 13th/14th fairways. All the holes offer differing challenges and require accurate tee shots to avoid fairway bunkers and trees. Shots on the way to inviting greens have greenside bunkers to negotiate which add to the challenging and enjoyable experience of playing the course whatever the season. A 10 acre driving range and practice ground runs parallel with the first fairway and a relaxing clubhouse provides a back drop to the 18th green offering full facilities following the round.

This is a great little course. Recently added bunkers make it tough to simply smash a driver off the tee and unless you can be really accurate with the big stick, a more controlled approach could be in order. After a fairly gentle start the holes get longer and the opening nine ends with a decent par 5 and a tough par 3. The 10th is arguably the best hole on the course - a long and demanding par 4 that ends with a two-tier green. The back nine is tighter than the first and getting it in play off the tee is critical. The closing stretch is great with a really demanding and thought-provoking 18th. And there's a decent practice area. Clubhouse pretty good too. There are some really good deals here at the moment and it's well worth a vist.

Fantastic greens all year round ! Treelined tight fairways and a lake can give you problems. The best half way house in the country-by a long way. Pro Shop helpful and well-stocked-always manned during daylight hours!!! Clubhouse cosy and well staffed.
Front nine, much of a muchness after the second. Beautiful back nine with some picturesque par threes around some big old Cedar trees. Well placed central bunker on the uphill eighteenth gets me every time. Play it on a mid-week 2-fore-1 but be prepared to wait, three of the last four times we've played there the pro shop has been deserted.
