Temple Golf Club review
Temple Golf Club

Temple Golf Club is set in the picturesque Thames Valley and Chiltern Hills. Its website claims the course boasts a world of unparalleled beauty, inspiration, and character.

The 6,210 yard par 70 offers views over Marlow and Bisham straight off the first tee looking down into the valley.

It is unique in its 'inland links' design, crafted by the 19th century two-time Open winner Willie Park Junior, claiming to be challenging to all levels of golfer.

The course is known for its scattering of wild orchids and the 10th is considered to be in the top 100 most unusual in Britain.

There are two large adjoined putting greens in front of the clubhouse, a small driving range and a short-game practice area both located on the back nine.

Temple is a 450 capacity traditional private members' club with membership prices varying from weekday to full-time contracts. Prices are available through contacting the golf club.

In this review I will look into three areas of the course; the signature hole, my favourite hole, and their practice areas for a comprehensive guide to Temple's golf facilities.
