Tracy Park is set in 240 acres of mature parkland with surrounding views of their Georgian Manor House and the beautiful English Cotswolds. The resort comprises of two championship golf courses, called the Crown and the Cromwell. Both superbly architected courses make the most of their location taking in the estates natural features. The undulating fairways stretch through the wooded parkland, while lakes and strategically placed bunkers are a feature on many holes offering a challenge to all abilities of golfers. This is golf at its best.
Nestling in the heart of the estate and some of the most mature and established natural parkland the Crown Course is the tougher test of thei two courses.
Although being an easier walk the course is slightly longer than the Cromwell at 6201 yards’ par 69. The greens are smaller and being more tree lined strategy and accuracy are a must to play to your handicap on this course.
The key to a good score is to get through the first 5 holes reasonably un-scathed, as it’s a tough start. If you can do that there are some good
scoring opportunities later in the round but also some holes that can bite back if you get a little wayward.
The Cromwell course is a perfect combination of old and new, bringing together the best of both worlds. Starting and finishing within mature parkland, overlooking the Georgian Manor House, the course meanders up into the hills to overlook the surrounding Cotswold Hills. Parts of the Cromwell course are set on the battlefields of Battle of Lansdown, the bloodiest battle in the English Civil War, hence the name of the courses. It is said the troops of King Charles sheltered in the grounds of the original house after the battle before they retreated under the cover of darkness.
The 6127 yard and par 71 course is an excellent combination of natural defences, water hazards and bunkers make some of the greens on this fantastic golf course a true challenge to find. Along with this you’ll need a steady hand to face the 12th tee shot over a lake to find the green on the popular par-3. With greens and tees built to USGA specifications, the Cromwell Course will no doubt become a firm favourite in the area. Their 6th green has been rated the hardest green in the country.
The course has large USGA spec greens with beautiful views overlooking the local area and Cotswold hills. On a clear day, you can even see both crossings of the Severn estuary.
