Course Review: Princes Course at Richmond Park Golf Club

9 Jul

The Princes Course at Richmond Park Golf Club is one of two courses at the club, the other being the Dukes Course.

The courses at Richmond Park Golf Club are public courses  run by Glendale Golf who manage and maintain around 7 other courses in England.

The Princes Course at Richmond Park Golf Club is a very short course playing to a Par 68 and measuring 5,486 yards/5,017 meters from the back tees with  some par 4s, the 14th, 15th, 17th and the 18th drive-able for those who aren’t necessarily long hitters. The bunkers are in terrible condition and the greens aren’t true and are very patchy – the course is by no means a premier course but is in decent enough knick for a quick round while in west London

There are three tees to play off – White for the Champs, Yellow for the regulars and Red for ladies and ol’ timers. There is just one Par 5 on the course but five Par 3s, one of which (the 13th) plays at 246 yards/225 meters. Given the short length of the course and the fact that the course is fairly open, it is relatively easy to navigate. It’s a Parkland course but parts of it do have a Links feel with some of the rough playing identical to Links type rough.

It is sightly over-priced at £30.00 for a weekend round and £24.00 for a midweek round. Rounds can be booked directly on the Club website or via www.teeofftimes.co.uk.
