Whether an accomplished golfer or relatively new to the game, Denham Golf Club welcomes new members of all ages and ability.
The classic Harry Colt designed course is well balanced; not only challenging for the single figure handicapper, but also providing a fair and enjoyable test of golf to the higher handicapper.
The 1st and 10th tees are located close to the Clubhouse, a hallmark of Harry Colt course design, so we can easily accommodate both two balls and four balls without the need for pre-booking tee times.
The gravel sub-soil means that the course is rarely closed and the use of temporary winter greens is not common. The recent addition of a reservoir means that even in the hottest of summers the course, with its fairway watering, remains in top condition.
Social golf, competitive golf, and mid-week & weekend matches provide all members with a great variety of ways to enjoy their golf whatever their standard.
At the core of Denham’s social golf is a simple ethos and tradition; “nobody is left in the Clubhouse without a game”. To this end we run roll-ups open to players of any standard or age every day of the week except Tuesday and Thursday. Additionally, we encourage people who are new to the Club to enter competitions and will, if necessary, pair them up with an established member to ensure not only that they get a game but also get to meet other members.
Many of our social golfing events also include lunch or supper in our outstanding dining room, renowned throughout golfing circles for the quality of its food and ambience.
With over 100 single figure golfers, and well over 200 Category 1&2 golfers, you can be assured of competitive golf of the highest level in our major Men’s, Ladies’, and Mixed competitions. Plenty of opportunities also exist for the higher handicappers with regular handicap Medal and Stablefords throughout the year.
Denham has a long history of an excellent and extensive fixture list against some of the top UK Clubs, Oxford & Cambridge Universities, and many local Clubs. Mid-week and weekend matches run throughout the year and are open to all members.
At Denham all members enjoy equal access to the course, and with a two-tee starting roster we ensure minimum waiting times and flowing golf. The Ladies section is welcoming to all players and across the section we have members from Scratch to Beginners. The Red Tee course which is mainly used by the Ladies section consists of three Par 5’s, eleven Par 4’s and four Par 3’s and in total measuring 5,504 Yards.
The Club enjoys a very friendly and social environment, and everyone is made to feel welcome, at home and included. At a golfing level there are monthly Medals and Stablefords, Spring and Autumn Meetings, Club Championship, Invitation Days as well as many other ladies and mixed competitions.
Competitively, we participate in and have enjoyed high success in County Competitions including the Bucks Shield, Winter Foursomes, Summer Scratch League to name but a few, and we are proud to have reached the Bucks Shield Finals on many occasions. In 2020 the Denham Ladies Team were delighted to win Premier Division of the Bucks Winter Scratch Greensomes.
On the social side we have great bars/coffee rooms and a beautiful south facing terrace to enjoy when the sun shines. Our first class dining room with an equally impressive wine list is well used by members, and all are encouraged to enjoy this amazing facility with their friends, family and fellow members. We organise many fun events such as quiz and ‘Wine & Dine’ evenings, and as a club we are always open to new ideas for entertainment proposed by our members. It is no great surprise we have such a well-established Ladies section and we always look forward to welcoming new and like minded members.
Please contact our General Manager, Richard Penley-Martin, and he will be delighted to show you around and arrange a friendly game with one of our Ladies members so you can try the course for yourself.
Families & Juniors
We encourage family and junior membership. We support this with junior coaching along with competitions and social golf specifically aimed at families and bringing different generations together. With many families now into their third generation of member, and some into their fourth, we think we must be doing something right!
The clubhouse, which had its origins in the 17th Century, is unique. Whether you simply have a drink in the bar or our south facing terrace after your round, or have Sunday lunch with your family, or host your own private party, the Clubhouse’s facilities are always available and you can be assured that the levels of quality and service you would expect from a private members club are maintained to the highest level.
