Set deep in the heart of England and easily accessible from all parts of the country, Northamptonshire is one of the best regions in England to play your golf. Known as the 'Rose of the Shires', the region is littered with hidden gems and courses that deserve so much more attention from the British golfing press than they currently receive. In truth, you'd be hard pushed to find a course in this region that you didn't like, or one that you would be too keen on playing again any time soon. You see, in Northamptonshire, the quality of golf is so good that you never want to leave. One of the most popular venues in the part of England is Oundle. Set in rolling Northamptonshire countryside, Oundle still occupies the same site near the picturesque market town of Oundle, as it did when it was founded in 1893.
Most holes call for careful placement from the tee with the smallish greens requiring accurate shot making. The course has a reputation for its preparation and presentation and will not disappoint. Another standout course is Staverton Park, a luxurious 18-hole golf course set in 140 acres of beautiful Northamptonshire countryside. With four small lakes and 64 American-style sand traps, it is ideal for golfers of all abilities. For those seeking good, value-for-money golf all year round then look no further than the 'Rose of the Shires'.
