Golf de Bondues (Trent Jones course): A very American design with plenty of water and big bunkering. Plenty of challenging holes laid out on a flat landscape with a much more open aspect than the neighbouring Hawtree course. Not as well presented or maintained (when we played it) as the Hawtree, and even a bit shorter.
Visitors welcome on weekdays; more restricted on weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].
