Hazlemere Golf Course was the idea of Dave Wanstall. He invited three like minded friends Ron Luzar, Mick Curry, and Reg Carlisle to join him. He had always wanted to see a golf course in the Hazlemere area and when a parcel of land owned by The Earl Howe Estate (Inkerman Farm) came on the market in early 1981, the opportunity to bring the dream to reality presented itself.
The land went for auction in early 1981 and Dave Wanstall and his friends were successful in their bid. Wycombe District Council were very supportive of the planning application even though the land was Farmland and within The Green Belt.
The farmland lent itself to the contours of a golf course and the majority of the land’s natural features were retained. One of the original features was the avenue of lime trees which stretches from behind the 12th tee to behind the 1st green. It is believed that originally the avenue was a carriage drive used by Earl Howe and continued beyond where the 3rd tee is today on to Penn House. The course is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty set in the heart of The Chiltern Hills and wonderful views can be seen from the Clubhouse and many other areas around the course.
