The Golf Course
Redlibbets was designed and built in the 1990s on a naturally free-draining site and has all the benefits of modern construction methods with USGA specification greens, tees and approaches and a fully automated irrigation system.
The owners pride themselves, as golfers of ability, on the presentation of the course. The par-72 design measures 6,572 yards from the back tees, but can play shorter as each hole benefits from three sets of tees. The parkland course boasts mature beech, oak and chestnut trees which creates the backdrop to this beautiful course. In terms of playability, the holes vary significantly with length from the tee being a benefit on the par-5s, but there is no substitute for accuracy!
