Whittlebury Park HeritageLearn about the history and heritage Whittlebury Park
Whittlebury Park is home to one of the finest golf experiences in the UK. Situated in the beautiful rolling countryside of south Northamptonshire, with hundreds of ancient oak trees and a dozen lakes, Whittlebury Park is the ideal venue for both individual golfers & Corporate or Society Championship golf day complimented by the magnificent Atrium Clubhouse (two-times winner of UK Clubhouse of the Year 2007 & 2008 and the largest in Europe).
With a heritage dating back over 1,000 years to when the estate was the playground of kings and courtiers, the Whittlewood Forest lies at the centre of this spectacular development. Within the grounds of the estate is the site of a stone age hill fort, a Roman road, and dwellings mentioned in the Doomsday book that all add to the rich history of this ancient park.
Once part of the Royal hunting ground of Whittlewood. The park is one of the first golf estates to be awarded corporate membership in the Wildlife Trust in recognition of the conservation work undertaken. This has created one of the most diverse collections of flora and fauna to be found anywhere in the Midlands, contributing to a wonderful rural experience year round.
Although Whittlebury Park prides itself on being a modern club focused on the future, traditional values remain important both for the needs of the customers and for maintaining the glorious parkland setting and fresh water lakes.
Whittlebury Park benefits from 4 loops of 9 holes each with their own unique character, playable in any combination, so you do not have to play the same round of golf twice. The 36 holes with STRI & GUGA accredited greens encompass’ a golf course built on the Whittlebury estate in 1905 and resurrected to modern standards some 85 years later, it also offers the opportunity to play around the remaining copses of the ancient Whittlewood Forest.
Gone are the days when golf organisers have to pray for good weather, or golfers for that matter. Whittlebury Park houses some of the best teaching and improvement facilities in the UK with the Indoor Golf Centre and covered driving range situated in The Atrium, making it independent of the weather. For those non golfers there is over 600 acres of land on which we run multi-activities (including Archery, Shooting, Quad Biking and many more) and team building days, making the Park an ideal venue for corporate outings and family fun days.
The Indoor Centre is equipped with the latest and most advanced teaching aids, including a simulator which allows you to compete against or organise a corporate challenge on courses such as, Royal Troon, St Andrews and Pebble Beach.
You could have a longest drive or nearest the pin competition at the end of the day on our indoor simulator, or have a short putting competition on our 9 hole all weather Southwest golf greens whilst socialising with your guests.
Companies and societies may exclusively hire our Indoor Centre, with the assistance of our team of PGA professionals to provide specifically designed tuition and entertainment to accommodate any corporate need and assistance in advice using the simulator and swing analysis.
