  • 5It is an enormous privilege for my family to be able to use Chequers,

    the majestic 16th Century house, brimming with history in the heart

    of the Chilterns, which has been the home of British Prime Ministers

    for almost a century.

    You can imagine my further delight when I was kindly invited by

    Ellesborough Golf Club to become an Honorary Member. Although I

    do not have much spare time, and my golfing ability does not stretch

    very far, there is little I enjoy more than being able to play a round on

    this beautiful local course.

    Established at the start of the last century in this Area of Outstanding

    Natural Beauty, Ellesborough Golf Club was once a part of the

    Chequers Estate the land was leased to the Club and this land

    now forms the opening 9 holes of the course.

    Because of this historic association with Chequers and, indeed, as

    a condition of the original lease, Honorary Membership is granted

    to the Prime Minister of the day and courtesy of the course granted

    to any of their guests staying at Chequers. Both Clement Atlee and

    Harold Wilson were regulars at the Club and both became members

    after their Premiership ended. Former US President Bill Clinton has

    also seen fit to admire both the course and the views it offered over

    the beautiful countryside.

    Having celebrated their centenary in 2006, I wish the Club many

    more years of success in providing a service to the community

    and an opportunity for all standards of golfer be they beginners,

    enthusiastic amateurs like myself, or more experienced stalwarts

    of the wonderful game to play in such magnificent surroundings.

    The Rt Hon David Cameron MP

  • 7In the heart of the Chiltern Hills, with stunning views over the Oxford

    plain and under the shadow of the Coombe Hill monument, lies one

    of the most beautiful 18-hole courses in the area Ellesborough Golf

    Club. The Chilterns have been designated as an Area of Outstanding

    Natural Beauty and Ellesborough certainly maintains the promise of

    that title.

    One of the major benefits of this 18-hole, chalk downland course,

    is the excellent drainage which allows play all year round on regular

    tees and greens.

    The variety of holes on the gently undulating landscape offer a

    challenge to golfers of all levels, with greens that have long enjoyed a

    reputation as some of the finest for miles around.

    The beauty of the views draws many a visitor and the hospitality in

    the clubhouse will finish a round of golf that brings players back time

    after time.

  • 9The Club was founded in 1906 as a nine-hole course, designed by

    Willie Park Jnr, twice a winner of the Open Championship.

    The clubs first President was Sidney Carr Hobart-Hampden-

    Mercer-Henderson, the 7th Earl of Buckinghamshire, pictured in the

    car above.

    In 1930, 52 acres of land were purchased on the north side of the

    Wendover to Princes Risborough road enabling a further nine holes

    to be added. These were opened in 1933 to the design of James

    Braid, five-times Open winner and at that time the Professional at

    Walton Heath Golf Club.

    The 18-hole course, located on the Chiltern Escarpment, is

    dominated by Coombe Hill on which stands the monument erected

    after the Boer War to honour the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire

    Light Infantry. The monument is the highest point for many miles

    around and the local adage to putt towards the monument is

    invariably sound advice.

    Many PGA professionals have played at Ellesborough but Open

    Championship winners Harry Vardon, Ted Ray, Henry Cotton, Max

    Faulkner and Greg Norman are the most notable.
