Five-star Stoke Park named king of the swingers


The five-star Stoke Park Country Club, Spa and Hotel has been named UK Golf Resort of the Year for 2015 by Square Mile magazine.

The magazine, whose readership is described as ‘senior executives working in the financial services industries based in the City, Mayfair and Canary Wharf’, said that Stoke Park was "all about understated elegance … with the iconic clubhouse providing a suitably impressive backdrop to any day where golf and a bit of business are combined".

It also mentioned the venue was popular among some of the A-list crowd, including Harry Styles from One Direction and Andy Murray who plays there for the annual Boodles tennis tournament.

The director of golf at the Buckinghamshire resort, Stuart Collier, said: "With many clubs increasing their fees while ours remain constant we are already seeing an increasing number of enquiries from people working in the financial district and to have this on our CV will merely add to Stoke Park’s allure, I’m sure."

Stoke Park Country Club, Spa & Hotel is one of just two five-AA Red Star golf clubs in England and the historic land on which it stands is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086.

It was also awarded the accolade of ‘Ultimate Members Club’ at the fifth annual 59Club Service Excellence Awards, held earlier this year.
