Pavenham Park Golf Club is located three miles north of Bedford and was opened in 1994. The course is established as one of the best in the area with its traditional, undulating parkland layout.
This challenging par 72, 18-hole golf course measures 6,467 yards off the Tiger Tees and sits in the middle of the Bedfordshire countryside, providing spectacular views of the surrounding villages and woodlands. Pavenham village has been a settlement on the River Ouse as far back as the Stone Age and Roman artifacts have been found locally. The Manor House was built around the time of William the Conqueror and during World War II, Glenn Miller was billeted here. Pavenham Park Golf Club now occupies the estate where the grand Manor House once stood.
Pavenham Park’s beautiful parkland exhibit’s great playing conditions during all weather. From tee to green, fairway to rough and bunkers to ponds Pavenham Park consistently offers a superb golfing experience for all levels of golfers.
However, Pavenham Park also stands ‘head and shoulders’ above its rivals in many other areas. It is located in the picturesque and quiet village of Pavenham, based in the tranquil rural countryside of North Bedfordshire. On entering of the club you will pass the 16th century Lodge House and hopefully feel very much a sense of arriving at your very own relaxed retreat. The drive up to the clubhouse must be one of the most pleasant in the area as you meander through the old pheasantry and the past Duke of Kent’s parkland.
The clubs car park is perfectly positioned with views over the 18th green. The clubhouse also benefits from being in a prime site with easy access to the 1st and 10th tees and the 9th and 18th greens.Since its inauguration the course has benefited from expanded and new teeing areas, new tree plantations and new hazards.
The coming year will see additional development in the form of new strategically based bunkers, improved teeing areas and some 5,000 new trees planted in various areas. The playing areas continue to be consistently the best conditioned in the area and will only further improve with the addition of new green keeping machinery for the coming season.
Pavenham Park as a playing venue will continue to excel and this, combined with nature’s generosity of great views, a tranquil setting and fantastic mature parkland, will surely ensure that the club remains regarded as one of the best in the area. The golf course itself continues to excel in all areas and it is continuously compared to other old established venues even though that this year Pavenham Park is only celebrating its youthful 15th birthday!
