Where2Golf says: 

Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands Golf Club enjoys its reputation as home to a pleasantly wooded, heathland course. This par-71 undulating parkland design is not overly long at just over 6,000 yards from the back tees. However, several tightish tree-lined fairways and the undulating terrain place a premium on accurate shot-making and good course management, if a good score is to be carded.

Water is not a factor here, but plenty of trees, good-quality greenside bunkering and usually excellent greens will test and probe your game. The older back-nine is arguably the tougher of the two. From parts of the course you'll enjoy fine views of the surrounding Bedfordshire countryside.

Did you know?

An excellent history of Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands Golf Club is documented on the club's own website. The following is a small extract from that history:
The earliest reference to the Golf Club was reported in the local newspaper, The Woburn & District Reporter, on May 18, 1912: "Some 12 months ago on the initiative of the Reverend Malby and Mr Wilkinson a plan was prepared for a 9-hole golf course on land from the Cricket Ground down to Rodwell Pit ( ... Rodwell Pit is the wooded area to the rear of the ladies 18th tee). The same paper, in its March 1, 1913 issue, stated that "A meeting of interested parties met at 'The Holt' to discuss the golf links" ( ... in 1913 "The Holt" - now the Moore Place Hotel- was a private house).
