Ashridge Golf Club: No wonder Sir Henry Cotton chose to become club professional here at Ashridge. This is a quintessentially English course, which occupies a large and quiet tract of woodland on the edge of the Chiltern Hills - some of the gently curving dog-leg holes are beauty and elegance in golfing guise. The layout comprises three-loops which all start and finish in view of the relatively new and chalet-like clubhouse. Most holes are tree-lined, gently undulating and stunningly natural. Good bunkering defends the greens, which often slope much more than you think - take your time and interrogate your putting lines carefully. Perhaps a touch of Wentworth about this course, without so much of the expensive real estate, but with a small herd of deer that seem unphased by the golf, until you get too close that is. A true English aristocrat among parkland golf courses.

Ashridge counts among its former club professionals, the three times Open Championship winner, Sir Henry Cotton. Glimpses of the Ashridge Residential Management Centre can be seen from the 16th green, one of many fabulous old manor houses / chateaux in this area (Note : access to the Golf Club is not via the Management Centre; access is via the B4506).
