The Club was officially opened in 1932 and has regularly featured in the top 100 golf courses in the UK. We are very pleased to announce that starting in 2003 and for a period of six years, Ashridge will host an ‘Open Championship ‘ Regional Qualifying Competition. We are naturally delighted to have been selected by the R & A as a ‘qualifying’ course and of having the privilege of being associated with the ‘Championship’.

Ashridge first came to prominence, however, in the late 1930’s following the appointment of Henry Cotton as resident Club Professional. Sir Henry Cotton as he was to become, was arguably the best golfer of his era, winning three Open Championships including the Open at Carnoustie in 1937 whilst he was at Ashridge.

In fact, in that year Sir Henry’s two Assistants Bill Laidlow and Fred Robertson, finished 7th and 18th respectively, the only occasion during the last 100 years when three representatives of the same Club finished so high in the order. From 1964, Alex Hay, the well known broadcaster, author and respected golf mentor spent 12 years as Professional at Ashridge and still remains a welcomed Honorary member of the Club.
