Welcome to Mount Pleasant Golf Club

Mount Pleasant Golf Club is open to the public and situated in some beautiful Bedfordshire countryside in the village of Lower Stondon and it is within easy reach of Hitchin, Luton, Bedford and Stevenage.  It has been recently extended and is now a fantastic 18 hole course. From the white tees it measures nearly 5,900 yards with a par of 70.

The course opened for play in July 1992 and has established a reputation for its excellent condition and presentation.  It has been designed to provide an interesting challenge and to provide a fair test of golf to established players, but not be too intimidating to enthusiastic beginners.

The course incorporated three meadows, with existing trees, hedges, ponds and ditches. Some 10,000 extra trees, mainly indigenous species, were planted and all of these plantations are now very well established, making for some excellent tree-lined holes. By using the well-proven construction principals and incorporating a good drainage and irrigation system, the course is playable all year round.

The new holes were constructed over 2 years with grading of the soil importation used to shape the fairways and rough. The greens were built to USGA standards and a new irrigation system was installed to water the greens from a bore hole. Whilst the new holes are more “open” than the older ones, some planting has taken place in the areas away from the playing lines.

The new holes are integrated in with the old ones so each 9 hole loop uses a mix of new and old holes. The 1st and 10th tees are close to the clubhouse allowing for 2 starting holes if needed.

A new, large putting green and chipping area with a practice bunker has been built close to the 1st tee to allow for warming up before play or to just get in some practice.

Our fantastic award winning clubhouse is perfect for celebrations of all types and sizes including weddings, birthday and anniversary parties. The building can be split into different sized rooms that can accommodate from 20 to over 100 people. We have great catering facilities, ample parking, with lovely views across the golf course and are an excellent venue for conferences.

For a refreshing drink, filling snack or a fine dining experience, head for the Fairway Bar & Bistro, where members and visitors will be looked after by our caring and attentive staff.

Mount Pleasant Golf Club is owned and managed by the Simkins family, who previously farmed the land. The course complements the environment, using the natural contours of the land, and its maintenance is carried out in a sustainable way.

We very much look forward to welcoming you for what we are sure will be a memorable visit.
