Luton Hoo Golf Course
Luton Hoo Hotel Golf & Spa is a perfect golf course in Luton the par-73 championship course is ever popular and a European challenge tour venue. Attached to a great five-star hotel, Luton Hoo Golf Club is a delightful golfing location. The Luton Hoo Golf Club also stages several tournaments and is home to the Bridgestone Challenge on the Challenge Tour. This parkland golf course measures 7,107 yards which makes it one of UK ‘s longest courses.
The course was constructed with USGA-specification tees and greens, by course architect Mike Smith.
Big, undulating greens – which can get very fast in summer – generate a tricky test combined with whipping winds, mature trees and many water features occupying 6 of the 18 holes set you up for a stern test of golf. There’s a very totally different experience on the two nine holes one is almost an inland links-style and the other is very parkland so examining every element of your game. For its defense, the first half counts on long rugged rough and water features; the back half plots its way around huge, overhanging oak and beech trees. The Golf course features no bunkers but is certainly not a walk in the park and precession from the tee will be required.
If you want a long weekend with golf and some amazing history, spa pampering, and gourmet food can be combined, Luton Hoo offers the lot. The lavish Bedfordshire facility experienced some spectacular post-war scenes when Prime Minister Winston Churchill spoke to a crowd of 110,000 to thank them for their loyalty during the Second World War. Churchill tanks, made by Vauxhall Motors in nearby Luton, were tested here with concreted gravel drives.
A great U.K Location for your next golf trip or Society.
