About the course..

Designed and constructed nearly 50 years ago, Sharnbrook golf course has matured and blended into the picturesque parkland of Colworth House.  Part of the course is dominated by spectacular 40 metre tall cedar trees.

The course is owned by Unilever and is beautifully maintained by their staff who also look after the grounds of the Science Park. Unilever staff also are responsible for the security of the course.

The 9 hole course has a par of 68 and is approximately 5200 yds long. Although not the longest course in Bedfordshire it does require golfers to play with intelligence and skill. This is not a course for someone who expects to drive his golf ball 250 yds and then hit a fairway wood onto a very large green. Here your drive must be very accurate or you will find that your next shot will be hard to land on a medium sized, well protected green.

Some of the holes are cunningly designed doglegs. Ponds, ditches and trees make all the holes great fun to play, whilst harboring an abundance of wildlife.

We have players of all abilities because the course offers a challenge to all without asking the impossible. There aren’t any hazzards with impossible carries unless you want to make one of your own. The beginner or moderate player can get round the course safely as long as they choose sensible shots and are prepared to reflect that choice in their score. However the scratch golfer will also not find the course easy. The course record is 67 but the standard scratch is 66. Very good players need to be at the top of their game to score well.

What most members particularly like about the course is the picturesque and tranquil setting. There are no man made noises other than the odd aircraft. No engine or road traffic noises, just the sounds of birdsong.

The course is well drained and is rarely closed due to bad weather consequently we do not use winter greens. Winter golf is even more challenging as the course retains it full length. Despite this our greens in the spring, summer and autumn are true and the slopes and borrows are fun to take on.
