The Duke's Course designed by Charles Lawrie opened in 1976 and was the first of Woburn's three courses to be constructed. The 6,983 yard Duke's course sports fairways lined with pine, silver birch and chestnut trees. Heather, bracken and gorse add to the charm of the course, as well as providing some of the natural hazards of each hole. Woburn remains one of England's best clubs, in part owing to the wide selection of holes on the Duke, such as the short but intense 134-yard, par 3 3rd.
It was the location for the British Masters for 20 years, as well as hosting the Women's British Open Championship and more recently the Travis Perkins Masters.
