Many may be aware of the palace at Hampton Court Palace but not necessarily its golf course. Within the grounds at Home Park, it offers a truly unique opportunity to play a traditional parkland course at one of the country’s most famous royal parks.
As golfers of ability, the new owners take great pride in the presentation of their courses. At 6,500 yards, the par 71 design meanders through hundreds of mature trees in a naturally free draining location.
Under the gaze of fallow deer, it’s easy to forget how close you are to the City of London but not hard to see why Golf Monthly features it on its ‘must play’ shortlist.
