Players generally walk this course.
Royal Ascot's golf course was for many years located on Ascot Heath, encircled by Ascot Racecourse. Development of the racetrack in the early 2000s, led to the Club moving to a new course across Winkfield Road on the site of the former Ascot Farm, once a medieval deer forest. Ironically, 100 years earlier it had been the home of a small golf club for local traders know as Ascot St George’s.
Founded by local barrister F.J. Patton in 1887, Ascot Golf Club was granted Royal status by Queen Victoria later that same year. Many of her children learned to play golf at Royal Ascot and the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, was patron of the club in 1901. By royal prerogative, 19 English golf clubs use the "Royal" title, namely: Ascot, Ashdown Forest, Birkdale, Blackheath, Cinque Ports, Cromer, Eastbourne, Epping Forest, Household (Windsor Castle), Liverpool (Hoylake), Lytham & St Annes, Mid-Surrey, North Devon (Westward Ho!), Norwich, St George's, West Norfolk (Brancaster), Wimbledon, Winchester, Worlington & Newmarket.
