Wycombe Heights Golf Centre, operated by Burhill Golf & Leisure, is well known for its outstanding 18 hole Main Course, which was designed by former Ryder Cup captain and golf legend John Jacobs. Beautifully laid out on chalk downs and hills, the golfing challenge of this high quality golf course is every bit as enjoyable as the astonishing views over the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The facility is always maintained to the highest standard all year round, with immaculate greens, offering an enjoyable test for golfers of any ability.
The highly acclaimed 18 hole par 3 Short Course – also designed by John Jacobs – is a great place for regular golfers to sharpen up their scoring skills and an ideal, relaxed environment for families and new golfers to gain confidence while learning to play the game. With holes ranging from 77 to 157 yards, this course is fun to play, and is maintained to the same high standard as the Main Course. There is also a floodlit driving range and a short game practice area.
Our work here has involved the total redesign of the driving range outfield – creating a more playable and maintainable platform using imported inert subsoil. This project, which is currently under construction by Knowl Hill Ltd, is one of two we have gained planning consent for in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – the other being at Caddington GC in Luton.
