As an example of a tree lined tight driving course that is as pretty as a picture, look no further than the Duchess course. I played in August 2008 (have now played about 12 times over the years) and the course never disappoints. The wonderful elegant pine trees are in view for every shot on every hole. Although there are a couple of par-3’s that are very similar, there are many great holes – favs for me include the tough par-4 1st and then great dog-legging 17th. Woburn has three memorable courses, all rather good.
