About the club

Welcome to Chiltern Forest Golf Club - 'The Jewel in the Chilterns' Chiltern Forest Golf Club nestles in the Chiltern Hills on the edge of Wendover Woods. The course is challenging for all golfers and boasts some of the finest views in Buckinghamshire. Chiltern Forest is a friendly members club with excellent facilities and a warm welcome awaits all visitors. Please contact us for membership details It is believed that golf was played on our land over 100 years ago, when most of the Halton area was owned by Alfred de Rothschild, one of the three fabulously wealthy brothers who settled in the area. At this time the course was just six holes. Shortly after the First World War the land was acquired by the War Office as a training camp for the fledgling RAF. During the Second World War, the famous professional Henry Cotton was stationed at RAF Halton and at this time he added three further holes and made other improvements to the course. In the 1950s local residents were allowed to play the course at a cost of 6d payable at the camp guardhouse before play. The number of locals playing gradually increased and eventually they formed their own club at the course. The first clubhouse was a modest affair consisting of a wooden hut just beside what is now the first tee. Its concrete base is still there and it gives an idea of its small size! In 1977 a new clubhouse was constructed, including changing rooms and all the facilities required for a 'proper' golf club. During 1984 the Club negotiated the purchase of additional land from the Forestry Commission - this land is now our 3rd, 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th holes. The 'square' (formed by the 2nd, 6th, 4th and 12th holes) was developed to construct the 5th and 7th holes, and, importantly, land was generously donated by Mr Wren Stewart, our friendly neighbouring farmer and former Club President. It was his land that now provides our 10th and 11th holes and without Wren's generosity, Chiltern Forest Golf Club could not have become an 18 hole course. On a hot July day in 1992 a Pro-Celebrity competition took place to mark the occasion, officially opening our course as 18 holes. After much discussion, work started in 1998 on extending the clubhouse. The new layout of the building includes a larger dining and lounge area, improved changing facilities, better catering area and a dedicated professional's shop. Recent major works have included completely rebuilding the 18th green, which had a tendency to become waterlogged after prolonged rainfall. Two new bunkers have been installed to the right of the first green, one of which is a good earner for the Captain's Charity! In 2006 there was major extension work to the Greenkeepers' facilities for improved storage and accommodation. The club and course are constantly improving and this remains the case with a rolling five-year plan. The course has certainly changed - the original Rothschild layout included a par 6 hole with the tee on the site of our present clubhouse and the hole finishing on the site of our first green.
