Review for Woburn (Duchess)

Reviewer Score:


I played the Duchess course on a late October day, mild but misty and damp. I'd not played at Woburn for a few years but the experience was as good as I remembered, friendly, helpful staff and top notch facilities. Even with a 1300 tee time we had the course to ourselves, able to enjoy the experience of walking the tree lined fairways heavy with the scent of pine. As other reviewers have said the Duchess is the shortest of the three Woburn courses but makes up for it with tighter fairways and small greens, all immaculate with tee boxes that look like carpet. I personally didn’t think the fairways especially narrow, only the wildest of drives will mean you're searching the trees or reloading. What’s key to a good score is ensuring you are in the right place on the fairways; it’s all too easy to rip a good drive only to have a tree blocking you or playing your next shot from an incline. There is a good mix of long and shorter par 4’s; I thought they were the best holes on the course. The only slightly disappointing element was the greens, quite slow albeit very true, I’m putting it down to the weather and time of year. IRC
