Royal Ascot Golf Club
Rich in history and poised for the future, Royal Ascot Golf Club offers a rare mix of tradition, exciting social, dining and corporate facilities and a modern golf course built in an area of outstanding natural beauty. 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 - with the new course officially opening in August 2005.
Since that time the course has matured exceptionally well with drainage that ensures you can play your golf at Royal Ascot in all seasons. Boasting tournament-standard greens we are proud hosts of regular Opens, the Jamega Tour, Pro-Am events and member competitions that are played throughout the year.
If you’re considering joining RAGC, our new member "Buddy Scheme” will ensure you get to play social golf with a friendly roll-up group at a time most convenient to you. With excellent coaching and practice facilities you will rapidly sharpen your game and prepare to compete, and our well-stocked Pro-Shop and knowledgeable staff will make sure you obtain the right equipment and look the part.
We’re also extremely proud of the social life on offer here at Royal Ascot. The excellent bar and dining facilities are very popular with members and guests and we host a number of private parties, weddings, corporate events and members’ socials - including a Spring-to-Autumn supper club every Wednesday evening which welcomes men, ladies, senior and junior members to play together and keep their swing in check in preparation for the following weekend. Come and discover the magic of Royal Ascot Golf Club for yourself.
Royal Ascot is based in the south west corner of Windsor Great Park and is the jewel in Berkshire’s golfing crown.
The course was designed by Jonathan Tucker of the Sports Turf Research Institute and built by J & E Ely, who altered Royal Troon for the 2004 Open Championship.
During course build, protected saplings were planted along the edge of a number of fairways and now that these trees have begun to mature, there are some treacherous lies to be found should you miss the fairway - take your medicine, come out sideways and give yourself a chance of keeping your score alive.
With quick and true greens built to USGA standard and exceptional drainage, Royal Ascot remains open for competitive golf throughout the year with only snow, thunderstorms or severe fog ever preventing play.
The course has been designed in an area of established Oak, Ash, Beech, Birch and Larch trees; ponds, brooks and a protected environmental area with Buzzards hovering overhead and Roe and Muntjac deer hiding in the copses – Royal Ascot truly is an aesthetically stunning course and an excellent test for golfers of all standards.
Royal Ascot has great teaching facilities; playing from turf all year round the practice ground has a distinct advantage over traditional driving ranges.
The range is 280 yards long and has an excellent practice bunker, pitching area, practice nets and putting green.
