Our History

The South Buckinghamshire Golf Course was originally called Farnham Park Golf Course.

It was used as the 9-hole Ladies Course of Stoke Poges Golf Club. The club was owned by Sir Noel Mobbs who set-up the Slough Trading Estate.  
The course was used for farming when the First World War started. The grounds were maintained for the whole time of the war. 
After the war, the course was restored to a 9-hole golf course. But in 1939, it was converted back to farmland to help with the second world war effort. Brian Matthews, the farmer who worked the land, maintained the tees and greens for their future use after the war.

New beginnings

The South Buckinghamshire reopened in 1975. In 1982, the Council acquired more land and hired Martin Hawtree, a golf course designer, to create an 18-hole course.  

The Mobbs Family donated the land to the local people with Charitable Status and it was approved by an Act of Parliament. Eton Rural Council ran the course at first, then Slough Council and South Bucks District Council after the boundaries changed, and then Buckinghamshire Council from the 1st April 2020. 

The 18-hole course, designed by Colt/Hawtree is situated in 130 acres of beautiful old, wooded parkland. It offers a fair test of skill with several chances for birdies and a remarkable selection of holes. The sixth, tenth, 11th, 13th and 16th - that would fit well in any top-level course.  

The course is a fine 18-hole parkland course with many established trees and ditches crossing the fairways. It is a par 70 for the men and a par 73 for ladies.​
