    The Marquess' Course at Woburn Golf Club opened for play in 2000, and was built to an original design by Peter Alliss, Clive Clark, European Tour Design (Ross McMurray) and Alex Hay. The course is laid out over 200 acres of mature woodland featuring tall pines, oak, beech and birch trees. Winding through this fabulous landscape is a collection of tree lined holes which are unrivalled anywhere in the United Kingdom. In 2001 the British Masters was switched to The Marquess Course from The Dukes' and was well recieved by the players.

    From the Championship Blue Tees it's hard to find an easy stretch of play on this golf course, with the course stretched to its full length of 7,213 yards. It is easy to get lulled into a false sense of security here as a feature of the course is big, wide fairways. Stand on the first tee and there seems to be acres of space to drive the ball. The fairways are wider than The Duke or Duchess Courses, but finding the right place on the fairway is just one of many keys to playing the Marquess' well.

    Where the layout differs most from the other two courses is in the construction and siting of the putting greens. Big undulations combined with subtle borrows and lightening fast surfaces are the order of the day on The Marquess. Put the ball above the hole on many greens and getting down in two putts is going to be difficult. Of the three courses at Woburn this is the one that will yield the most three putts, and is not the sort of course to play if you suffer from a case of the yips.

    Given the variety of pin positions that the greens can offer a premium is placed on the tee shot to ensure that you can hit the right part of the green with your approach shot. Hit the wrong spot and getting the ball close to the hole is going be a challenge.

    The Marquess' course requires a golfer to take risks and hit good shots. Hit good golf shots and you will be rewarded. Be slightly off your game and you will pay penalty. However, even if you don't play well, the course is so stunning that you'll be rewarded with a magnificent walk over 18 of the best holes to be found in the United Kingdom.
