Richmond Park

Opened in 1923 by HRH Prince of Wales, the Prince’s Course was built to provide the public with an opportunity to enjoy a fine golf course within London, at a time when golf was very exclusive. It proved so popular that two years later the Duke’s Course was built. 90 years on and the Prince’s and Duke’s courses are still just as popular with golfers from all over the world.

Princes Course

The shorter of the two courses (5487 yards, par 68) and more undulating. Princes has wonderful elevated views over Richmond Park’s 3000 acres and beyond. Modern design with many new greens and bunkers. Rebuilt in 2013/14, following a two-year course improvements programme.

Dukes Course

Longer of the two courses (6369 yards, par 71) on the lower part of the estate so it really feels that you’re playing golf within the natural setting of Richmond Park. The Duke’s features many water hazards and the park’s ancient brook. More similar in design to the original course built in 1923 and regarded as the ‘championship course’ due to its length and more challenging nature.

As well as the rebuilt Princes course there have been a number of other improvements to Richmond Park Golf Course recently, including:

  • A brand new clubhouse, designed to blend in with nature with a roof made using acid grassland from the Park. The eco-friendly building features an open plan coffee shop, bar and restaurant.
  • A new covered all weather driving range
  • A 4 hole par 3 academy course for golfers wanting to improve and those who are new to the game
