Welcome to Whittlebury Park Golf & Country Club
Whittlebury Park Golf & Country Club has a rich history of ancient parkland, once forming part of the Royal Whittlewood Forest which stretched for miles. Many of the mighty oak trees within the park have stood proud for more than a thousand years, during which time the park has been a Royal Hunting Forest and home to red deer. Also within the grounds of the estate is the site of a Stone Age hill fort, a Roman road and dwellings mentioned in the Domesday Book.

At the end of the 19th Century the park had its own private 9 hole golf course, but at the outset of World War One, landowners were encouraged to plough land in order to grow much needed crops, and the course was given up.

For most of the 20th Century the estate was a working farm before being transformed in 1991 to become the 36 hole Championship Golf Course available today. With a little detective work, details of the course were uncovered at the library in St.Andrews.  The course was reconstructed, and is named the 1905 Course in memory of its original heyday. Play was by invitation only; a carriage was sent to Towcester railway station to collect guests, a local caddy was provided and a golden guinea was expected as contribution towards the upkeep of the course.

The 1905 Course stands within the oak parkland close to a further 3 courses: the Royal Whittlewood, the Grand Prix and the Wedgewood.
