This small haven, nestled within green belt countryside just outside Chalfont St Giles in South Buckinghamshire, is something of an exception when it comes to golf clubs in the county, with a cluster of established members clubs surrounding it, Oakland Park has had to be different to make its mark. The first distinguishing factor is that Oakland Park is a family owned proprietary club whose doors are wide open to members and guests and the clubs friendly atmosphere and family ethos provide a warm welcome to all. The proprietor and her daughter manage the Pro Shop, which has built an unlikely national reputation for its outstanding range of ladies leisure clothing. The clubhouse building, newly refurbished, is styled on a traditional Buckinghamshire barn and provides a warm traditional feel along with modern changing facilities. The kitchen is also run by a husband and wife team whose reputation is built on good home cooking and value for money. The 18 hole, par 67 course with Driving Range is set in pleasantly undulating mature parkland on the edge of the Chilterns, an area of outstanding natural beauty and designed by Jonathan Gaunt, a highly acclaimed member of the British Institute of Golf Course Architects. The easy walking, free draining, attractively presented course provides an excellent golfing experience.
