Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands Golf Club


3+ (3 gold): one of our top-rated 3-star courses, worthy of 3½ stars.
   Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands Golf Club Est. 1914

Where2Golf says: 

Aspley Guise & Woburn Sands Golf Club enjoys a reputation as home to a pleasantly wooded, heathland course. The layout may not be overly long at just over 6000 yards from the back tees, but its tightish tree-lined fairways and undulating terrain still require 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.

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 present Golf Club is reported in the local paper of the time 'The Woburn & District Reporter'. In its issue of May 18th 1912 it quotes, "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). In the same paper, issue dated March 1st 1913 there appears the following quote: "A meeting of interested parties met at "The Holt" to discuss the golf links". (Note: In 1913 "The Holt" - now the Moore Place Hotel- was a private house).
