Course History

The Duchess' Course opened in April 1978, two years after the Duke's Course opened.

Designed by Charles Lawrie, the Duchess Course has a ridge across the 11th and 5th fairways which are the site of an ancient Danish settlement.

The Duchess' course was used to stage the Ford Ladies Classic between 1985 and 1994 with Laura Davies and Liselotte Neumann amongst the winners. The Seniors Open Amateur Championship and The English Amateur Championship were also played on the Duchess' Course.
