Join Chalgrave Manor Golf Club




Welcome to Chalgrave Manor Golf Club



I built Chalgrave Manor Golf Club in 1992 because I believed that Golf Clubs and Golf Club Membership could be different. Golf can be vibrant, inexpensive and above all, FUN!! So can club membership!! We don't follow the normal path of the traditional golf club, we examine every alternative and think up some new ones with the ultimate aim of being better than the rest as a result!! Our staff work immensely hard to facilitate that philosophy. So, if you want to ENJOY your leisure time, pay a reasonable cost for your golf and be part of a vibrant golf club,

then come and join us or come and play here.


By the way, the Golf Course is pretty damn good as well.......   


The Club opened on 31st May 1994 and is built on almost 150 acres of rolling Bedfordshire countryside. Dropping 35 metres from top to bottom, the course with countless doglegs, sloped fairways and greens, large areas dividing holes, the course presents a challenge to all standards of golfer, with wide fairways for the higher handicapper, but demanding precision placement and careful course management for the low handicapper to score well. The greens drain freely, allowing golf to be played on them throughout the year.

Winter greens have never featured at Chalgrave at any stage of the club's lifespan.


Located just 2 minutes from Junction 11A or 12 of the M1, and the A5 trunk road just a couple of minutes away as well, Chalgrave Manor Golf Club has fantastic access from any direction, making the club a great meeting point for societies and groups, as well as attracting a solid membership base from the surrounding area. In the past 5 years, the Club has bucked the trend in golf, where memberships at most clubs are declining,

Chalgrave Manor GC continues to experience increasing demand for membership.


Notably, the golfers who have been alienated from Club Membership in the past decade, players who are only playing 20/25 rounds a year,

have found that our basic philosophy of providing high quality golf at an exceptional price,

coupled with the superb SmartGolfer Network arrangements (where else can you pay £595 per annum and play golf at 30+ courses??), have returned to Club Membership as a result.



An exceptional deal is always an attractive proposition!!

How To Find Us



For the Sat Nav people, Postcode is LU5 6JN - although be aware that most sat-navs then tend to take you to Chalgrave Church which is on the North East corner of the Course. The Golf Club main entrance is on the main road, so if you have come through Toddington Village, just keep going for another 200 yards......If you came up from Houghton Regis, you should be very concerned!What chance have you got of finding a small white ball in the rough or even on the fairway if you have managed to drive past the front entrance without seeing it???


For the less technologically advanced....


From the M1......


Chalgrave Manor Golf Club is located just 2 miles south of the M1 at Junction 12, on the A5120. From the M1 in either direction, turn right at the top of the sliproad. That is as complicated as it gets. Stay on the A5120, go through Toddington Village and out the other side. The main entrance is on the left hand side of the main road about 400 yards beyond the last houses. Watch out for all the people with Sat Nav's turning out of the road from the church....


From Houghton Regis


At the traffic lights in Houghton Regis, take the A5120, signposted Toddington, which takes you down between the Kings Arms Pub and the Church. Stay on this road until you reach the Golf club, which is on the right hand side 250 yards after you have been up the very steep hill. If you have Sat Nav, the Church is always worth a visit.
