The Bond…James Bond Golf Experience

Heathrow

England

  • Nights 4
  • Days 5
  • Rounds of Golf 3

If you are a 007 movie buff or a fan of arguably the GOAT of all “Bonds”,  Sean Connery, then we have a golf experience for you.

In golf, the most epics golf duels had to be between Watson and Nicklaus at Turnberry in 1977 or the most recent between Stenson and Mickelson at Troon in 2016 but in movies, one of the best has to be from the 1964 classic Goldfinger where an epic duel between James Bond (Sean Connery) and Auric Goldfinger (Gert Frobe) was battled out…

After catching Goldfinger cheating, Bond switches balls on his opponent during the match. Realizing that Bond is attempting to interfere in his affairs, Goldfinger motions to Oddjob, his deadly Korean manservant and caddie, to sever the head of a nearby statue with his steel-rimmed bowler. Bond is suitably impressed, but wonders what the club secretary will have to say. Goldfinger explains smugly, “Oh nothing Mister Bond – I own the club!”  

Ah, you got to love that scene because we certainly do!

Well, if you are a historian of movies or just want to play some great golf in the outskirts of London, then this one is for you.   Stay at the iconic Stoke Park property and remember, when you are at the bar make sure that you order your martini correctly… “shhhhaken, not shhhhtirred”, otherwise you might have a visit from Oddjob!

Before You Travel

  • A quality rain suit, pants and jacket is a MUST! Zero Restriction and FootJoy are quality brands. If you do not own such apparel, it is expensive and note, you get what you pay for. So purchase wisely as you’ll be thankful you have it if you get a good lashing!
  • Rain gloves – a must when playing in the rain. They come in pairs and for good reason. A wet hand on a wet grip will only result in tears as your ball, and maybe your club too, will undoubtedly end up in the fescue.
  • A good ski hat – yes, not what you typically think of for golf but because most courses are on the ocean, the water temps are still only in the upper 50’s to 60 degrees. Combine these factors with some wind blowing onshore and then throw in some rain and it is a recipe for being miserable. A nice warm hat that can cover your ears could be your best friend.
  • A proper golf umbrella – a must as normal summer weather means intermittent showers that come and go throughout a 4 hour round. You can generally see what is coming so instead of changing in and out of rain gear, you can use a good sturdy wind-resistant umbrella to shelter you until the shower passes.

Now, what about sunshine? Yes, they do have it in Ireland and when it comes out especially in the late spring and summer months, it can be quite warm to hot. Therefore, a few pair of golf shorts are in order. Golfers have been known to wear shorts under their rain pants simply because the extremes from shower to sunshine can be very dramatic – so this is sometimes the best approach.

All in all, these are the best tips to best prepare you for what we hope is a memorable experience golfing in England.
