The Golf Colt Ali­son (1-9) par 36, 3,509 yards (10-18) par 35, 3,242 yards Lane Jack­son (19-27) par 36, 3,089 yards The golf at Stoke Park comes in the shape of three nine-hole de­signs that were orig­i­nally laid out by Harry Colt in 1908. Set in the rolling grounds of the im­pres­sive man­sion house, this is quin­tes­sen­tial English park­land golf.

The Colt nine has just re­opened af­ter a sig­nif­i­cant makeover that trans­formed the net­work of bunkers that de­fine and pro­tect the lay­out. There might be 23 fewer than be­fore, but a com­plete over­haul of the shap­ing has made them more im­pos­ing from the tee. What’s more, many have been repo­si­tioned, mean­ing the Colt is a far greater test of strat­egy.

A sim­i­lar re­vamp of the Ali­son and Lane Jack­son nines is due to take place over con­sec­u­tive win­ters. Whichever com­bi­na­tion you opt for, golf at Stoke Park is an en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence for play­ers of all abil­i­ties. Also play… The Buck­ing­hamshire. A sim­i­larly im­pres­sive park­land set-up just 20 min­utes from Stoke Park. Ac­com­mo­da­tion From the mo­ment you first set eyes on the man­sion house, it’s clear – Stoke Park ex­udes lux­ury. The main build­ing is a stun­ning cen­tre­piece that com­bines im­pos­ing re­cep­tion rooms with a small range of in­di­vid­u­ally de­signed bed­rooms. The sump­tu­ous decor is a per­fect match for the grandeur of the man­sion it­self. The suites and bed­rooms in the Pav­il­ion of­fer a more con­tem­po­rary feel and come with ev­ery­thing you could pos­si­bly need, even mood light­ing! For an ex­tra-spe­cial el­e­ment to your stay, the fine-din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at Humphry’s is a must. Where else… Take in a show at the in­ti­mate The­atre Royal in nearby Wind­sor (the­atreroy­al­wind­sor.co.uk). An ae­rial view of Stoke Park
