Royal Ascot Golf Club

Royal Ascot Golf Club

England David Hemstock designed the new 18-hole layout for the Club in 2001, during the move from the centre of the famous racecourse to an area of adjacent Crown land, and as a Consultant to the Sports Turf Research Institute. Construction was managed by Jonathan Tucker, also of the STRI.

Established and named by Queen Victoria in 1887, RAGC was originally positioned on Ascot Heath in the centre of the racetrack and moved to its current location on Ascot Farm in the south west corner of Windsor Great Park, Berkshire. The golf course was re-opened in 2005 after £185 million was spent on extensive remodelling of the racecourse, grandstand and other facilities.

The new golf course layout was designed by David to carefully incorporate the landform, old trees and wetland areas, as well as preservation of existing features key to the design philosophy, and of course with a strategic, nicely varied and flowing set of holes thoughtfully arranged within the wonderful landscape setting.

The course now hosts regular Opens, the Jamega Tour, Pro-Am events and member competitions that are played throughout the year. - RAGC website.

The challenging 6,294 yard parkland course on 150 acres of wooded Crown land was described by one former Ryder Cup player as “one of the best new English courses I have played for a long time”.

Royal Ascot celebrated its "125th Anniversary year" during 2012 and is the oldest golf club in the area, dating back to 1887. But it now plays on one of the newest and best courses in Berkshire, having moved from its old course on Ascot Heath in the middle of the racecourse in 2005." - Today’s Golfer

“Royal Ascot Golf Club is a visually spectacular course offering a great test to golfers of all abilities”. - Tee-Off Times website
