John O'Gaunt Golf Club

Welcome...

What They Say…

‘…it was clear to us lay people how much loving attention has been poured into the course by the greens staff…John O’Gaunt’s carpet-like fairways, sticky rough and flawless putting surfaces provided an exceptionally stern and rewarding test of golf, matched by Carthagena’s long rough, hairy lipped bunkers and equally immaculate greens…this was by far the best prepared course they have ever had the pleasure to play at for the premier event of our season.’ 

‘…it was clear the club went out of its way to ensure everyone felt welcomed; the service from the F&B team was excellent, the bacon rolls for breakfast and ham, egg and chips for lunch were spot-on…’

2 Great Courses

John O’Gaunt Golf Club has a wonderfully British feel and design, boasting two 2 equally well presented and complementary 18-hole courses: the 6,535 yard John O’Gaunt and the 5,833 yard Carthagena.

Lined with a beautiful variety of mature trees, the John O’Gaunt, consistently recognised as ‘the best track in the County’ stretches out across the gently undulating Bedfordshire landscape; however, its beauty can be deceptive as it is often described as a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’!  The Carthagena is a little shorter but no less challenging, tighter and quirky in places; built on exceptionally free-draining soil, the Carthagena offers all year-round opportunities.

Together the John O’Gaunt and the Carthagena present an excellent venue for golfers of all abilities.
