2014 move to the Marquess
2014 is marking a move to the wonderful Woburn - Marquess' Course, designed by Peter Alliss and Clive Clark, European Golf Design (Ross McMurray) and Alex Hay opened in 2000. The course was named after the then Marquess of Tavistock and was soon referred to as the 'Jewel in the Crown'.
Set within 200 acres of mixed woodland the Marquess's course overlaps the county boundary dividing Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire and presents a variety of rolling and undulating terrain. The predominant tree species are pine, spruce, sweet chestnut and oak, while there are a number of rare specimens such as Corsican pine, yew, rowan and beech.
Within a year of opening the Marquess' Course hosted the first of two British Masters and hosted the English Amateur Championship in 2011.
In 2014 The Marquess' Course will be one of four courses in the country to be used to stage Final Qualifying for The Open Championship.
