History

Our founder members were Messrs. Tarver, Pettit, Walker, Harris, Needham and Stonbridge.

The original 9 holes were designed by Sandy Herd in 1912 and constructed by Charles Willmott who remained as the Club Professional for 42 years. The Course was opened for play in May 1914.

Four well known professionals were invited to play an exhibition match on the opening day. They were Sandy Herd, Ted Ray, Tom Ball and James B. Batley, of Bushey Hall Golf Club. The lowest score of the day, was returned by Tom Ball, with a score of 68 for 18 holes.

Course

A mature heathland / parkland course, located on naturally undulating terrain, which seamlessly blends into the surroundings. In 1972, additional land was acquired and a further 9 holes added, in line with the late Robert Sandow’s design. The full 18 holes were opened for play on 25th May 1974.

Never one to let the grass grow under our feet, the course has continued to evolve & mature and improvements that are introduced, build on the original core design principles.

The Club is continually looking to better its offering and has embarked on a structured, phased programme of continuous improvements, that enhance and build on the original design concepts.

In early 2000 the Club embarked on a bunker refurbishment programme, founded on the design generated by Cameron Sinclair.

We offer a fair test for golfers of all ages and skill levels. The 18-hole par 71 course affords fine views of the surrounding countryside.

Gentleman’s Section

Apart from regular monthly medal and stableford competitions, there are annual trophies to be competed for and won, for individual and pairs knockout competitions.

There are a number of weekend roll ups and a major roll up on both a Monday and Thursday called ‘The Blobby Pot’.

There are also roll ups on most other days of the week, so there are always opportunities to get a game!

A social but competitive group, where attendance is only required when you can make it! During the summer there are usually around 60 members playing each day. A great way for new members to become integrated into the Club.

ASPLEY GUISE & WOBURN SANDS GOLF CLUB | 31


Pro’s Tips -

Hole by Hole

Hole 1 A short but narrow opening hole, keep your tee shot up the right-hand side of the fairway.

Hole 5 This beautifully sculptured hole favours a drive down the left-hand side to get a good look at the pin.

Hole 8 A very testing par 5. Be patient and take an extra club up the to the elevated, two tier green.

Hole 2 A blind tee shot requires you to aim at the marker post and keep your approach shots to the green up the right-hand side. A deceptively sloping green.

Hole 6 Don’t let the water put you off! Lay up short to the right of the fairway bunker and avoid the out of bounds on the left with your approach shot to the green.

Hole 9 With out of bounds down the left and a sloping fairway, two very accurate long shots are required to reach the green. You’re playing well if you make par here!

Hole 3 You must be very accurate with your approach shot to the small, well-guarded green.

Hole 7 One of the toughest par 3’s around. A well struck long iron or wood is required to reach the green but avoid the water to the right.

Hole 10 Signature Hole: A much talked about hole in the area. This deceptively deep green means precise clubbing is essential. Hidden contours require you to favour your tee shot to the left-hand side of the green.

Hole 4 A smooth swing to produce an accurate tee shot is required. Miss the green and you’re in trouble!

32 | ASPLEY GUISE & WOBURN SANDS GOLF CLUB


Hole 11 A gentle sloping fairway requires a tee shot up the right-hand side. You need to be very accurate into this long and thin green. Hole 12 Another accurate tee shot is needed, leaving you an approach shot that must be struck well to carry the road. Hole 13 Precision with a short club is vital. This is another very deceptively tricky green to putt on.

Hole 14 A picturesque par 5. Play a fade off the tee and you’ll be in position ‘A’. Lay up short of the bunkers leaves an extremely testing short approach shot into the narrow green.

Hole 17 Another testing tee shot. The gentle sloping fairway favours a drive up the right-hand side. This green is a narrow target, which basically means precision is a must.

Hole 15 Take enough club to carry the water but avoid the out of bounds to the right.

Hole 18 A draw is the best shape to play off the tee. Big Hitters can reach the green in 2. The safe play is to lay up leaving you a wedge into the green.

Hole 16 Accuracy off the tee and good club selection is the answer to this great par 4. It is very easy to under club on your approach shot.

Signature Hole

Hole 10 One of, if not the best, par 3’s in the county. Aspley’s signature 10th hole, viewed from the clubhouse balcony is spectacular. The green, when viewed from either tee, is deceptively long and narrow. Bunkers right and left catch more than their fair share of balls and with out of bounds left and mounding right, golfers walking off with a par, feel like they’ve had a birdie! Beautiful, but lethal!

Get Skin Savvy Brought to you by:

Regular skin checking will help you get to know your skin and catch anything early, making it easier to treat. Type of skin cancer: Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) & squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) These are the most common forms of skin cancer, which arise within the top layer of the skin, appearing anywhere, but mostly on sun exposed sites. BCC: usually slow growing, a pinkish bump that can bleed and scab. SCC: usually quick growing, a thickened scaly, or red ulcerated bump that can be painful and bleed.

Melanoma This is less common, but much more dangerous. If left, the cells can grow deeper into the skin and travel to different areas of the body.

The ‘ABCDE’ Rule will help detect warning signs...

C

How to perform a skin check: Once a month, examine your skin in a well-lit area, noting all moles, marks and spots, charting the location, appearance, and dimensions of each. Taking pictures can be helpful, as can the help of ‘another’ for those ‘hardto-see’ places: 1.

Start with your front, back, left and right sides.

2. Bend elbows and check forearms, back of upper arms and palms. 3. Check backs of legs, feet, spaces between toes, soles of feet, and nails. 4. Examine back of neck, part hair to check scalp using a mirror or torch. 5. Carefully check your back and buttocks. If you spot anything new and/or changing, whether coloured or not, bleeding, crusty or itchy, contact your GP IMMEDIATELY.

ASYMMETRY:

BORDER:

COLOUR:

DIAMETER:

EVOLUTION:

One half of the mole does not match the other

Irregularity including, ragged edges

Shades that are not uniform

Greater than the tip of a pencil eraser

A change in size, shape, or elevation of a mole
