If you’re up to par, it’s a great place to make your mark.

The Role:

The tree-lined grounds are home to two 18-hole golf courses – the historic Herbert Fowler Old Course and the Coronation Course – which have hosted events including the Bob Hope Classic and the Tesco Pro Am.

Here at Woodcote Park, our clubhouse set in 350 acres of Surrey parkland near Epsom, we’re passionate about pioneering ever higher standards of dining, accommodation and sporting facilities.
