Maidenhead Golf Club review

Founded by legendary all-round athlete Lord Desborough in 1896, the Maidenhead Golf Club is situated in the beautiful Berkshire woodlands, five minutes from the train station.

At 6,338 yards, it's not the longest par-70 around but it's said to deliver challenges for all abilities, suggesting accuracy is the name of the game.

With smaller than normal greens and slopes off a majority of the putting surfaces, the approach shots are arguably the toughest in the county.

Although exquisitely maintained, the fairways and bunkers have planned development across the course with the long fourth green already re-shaped to allow for more pin positions.

Green fees Monday to Sunday stand at £45 for pay-and-play guests, but £25 if you play with a member and just £6 for a junior.
