    Created in 1908, Stoke Park Golf Club is one of the finest parkland layouts in the South of England. Designed by eminent golf architect Harry Colt and known as Stoke Poges, the course has been the inspiration for many of the world's most famous holes. The par 3, 7th hole was the inspiration for Augusta National's infamous 12th hole, at the centre of Amen Corner.

    There are other reminders of Augusta National at Stoke Park, especially when the azaleas and rhododendrons are in bloom, most notably on the picturesque 156-yard 11th hole where the tee shot through a grove of trees must carry a lake.

    Capability Brown originally landscaped the historic park in the late 18th Century, before Harry Colt designed the course. Stoke Park was Harry Colt's first unassisted design. The historic 27 hole Championship golf course weaves it's way through the 350 acre Buckinghamshire parkland estate.

    The course itself has a prestigious history, hosting the first PGA Matchplay tournament in 1910 and James Bond's epic golfing duel in the 1964 classic 007 movie Goldfinger.

    The course is long and has no fewer than eight par fours of more than 400 yards from the medal tees, the longest being the 9th at 456 yards. It remains largely as Colt designed it with the exception of the 15th and 16th holes, altered in recent years to enhance the championship layout.

    The fairways seem quite wide, but good placement from the tee is key to scoring well here. The main defense is the abundance of large stalely trees, with clever bunkering, water hazards and fast, undulating putting greens.

    The signature Stoke Park Mansion, which was designed by James Wyatt and houses the hotel, clubhouse, restaurants and conference rooms, is said to have influenced the architects of the White House since the dome is similar and both edifices have an oval office.
