Why join Club Bunker?
Woburn is synonymous with a number of tour players with Ian Poulter its most famous son. Poulter has played a big part in Gary Boyd’s career and Gary is another to have come through the Woburn factory before going on to play on the European Tour.
And we’re delighted that Gary is going to host three Bunker Mentality days at Woburn where our members will get the chance to meet and play with Gary and sample some of the very best courses on the planet.
To have one course in the UK and Ireland’s Top 100 is special, to have three is something else. Woburn’s Marquess, Duke’s and Duchess courses all manage this and with good reason.
The Duke’s was built in 1976, the Duchess two years later and the Marquess was opened in 2000. The club says they are like three siblings but they’re got three really different personalities.
The Marquess is the younger, brasher, wider course. It’s tree-lined but is more generous off the tee, there is more undulation and there is more to deal with on the greens. When they’re running they will be 11.5 and this presents the challenge.’ The Duke’s the more classical of the three and has been the home to the British Masters for many years, with the likes of Lee Trevino, Seve Ballesteros, Sandy Lyle, Nick Faldo, Ian Woosnam and Justin Rose all winning there, while the Duchess is the shorter and tighter of the three.
In recent years the European Tour has returned to Woburn with the Marquess providing the stage with Matt Fitzpatrick prevailing and it’s now also a major venue with the Women’s British Open twice being played here.
It’s an amazing place to play golf with a fantastic putting green, incredible short-game area and easy-going and particularly welcoming and modern clubhouse.
The idea of Club Bunker is to bring together like-minded golfers in a virtual golf club before getting out there for some golf, some good company and maybe a beer and all fitted and supported by us - 2020 didn’t work out as any of us had planned but we’ve got some big plans for 2021.
