England

Click to visit Fulford Golf ClubWhen the unmarried Queen Elizabeth I of England died in 1603, James VI of Scotland moved court to London, taking up residence at the Royal Palace in Greenwich becoming James I of England. His royal entourage is thought to have contained a number of golfers and they found the perfect ground at Blackheath on which to play their beloved game. In 1608 Blackheath Golf Club was instituted, but documentary evidence has yet to be discovered.

Today there are approximately 700,000 golfers affiliated to England’s 1,900 or so golf clubs. There are more golf courses in England than Ireland, Scotland and Wales put together. The topographical variation of England’s golf courses is perhaps totally unique the world over but the vast majority of overseas visitors head to Scotland and Ireland rather than choosing to play golf in England. We think the English Tourist Board are missing an opportunity. To see our latest Top 100 Golf Courses of England, simply scroll down this page.

72nd England Ranking

Stoke Park is surely one of the finest parkland golf courses in the South of England. With no heather here, the main line of defence is the abundance of huge stately trees and Colt’s clever design.
