Stoke Poges Golf Club was founded at Stoke Park in 1908 and has established and maintained a reputation as one of the finest parkland courses in the world. The 27-hole championship course was designed by famed golf architect Harry Shapland Colt. Colt and his partners worked on over 300 golf courses around the world including at St Andrews in Scotland, Royal Portrush in Ireland, Wentworth in England, and Pine Valley in the United States. Recently, Stoke Poges was chosen from over 2,200 clubs in the British Isles as Golf Club of the Year by the largest-selling golf course review book, Following the Fairways.
Stoke Park has also featured in numerous films, among them Bridget Jones’ Diary and James Bond movies Tomorrow Never Dies and Goldfinger; in the latter, henchman Oddjob famously decapitates a statue as Bond (Sean Connery) and his adversary Goldfinger putt on a green in front of the former stately home.
