Woburn Golf Club,
Little Brickhill, Milton Keynes,
Woburn Golf Club was the inspiration of the Marquess of Tavistock, later to become the 14th Duke of Bedford. The success of the Club, with its three championship courses and its facilities are a tribute to his quick thinking and courage. In the mid 70's he was approached by the Milton Keynes Development Corporation, with a view to taking the land on which the courses are built, as a recreational park for Milton Keynes. His response was ''how sad as he had planned to build a golf course!'' Today, thanks to him and his family and with the support of the Trustees, Woburn Golf Club is a legacy which continues to thrive.
