Woburn Safari Park

Opened in 1970, Woburn Safari Park is one of the UK’s oldest wild animal parks and has over 80 species of wild animals roaming in 300 acres of beautiful parkland.

Established by the 13th Duke of Bedford, the park has a long history of species conservation dating back more than 100 years. Today, Woburn Safari Park is internationally recognised as a centre of excellence for the conservation of endangered wildlife and houses probably the biggest concentration of critically endangered African ungulates (hoofed mammals) on Earth.

Woburn Safari Park is a member of and contributor to the British and Irish Association of Zoos and Aquariums (BIAZA) and the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria (EAZA).

Since hosting the Dunlop British Masters in 1979, more than fifty professional tournaments have been played over the three courses at Woburn. The role of honour reads like a who’s who of world golf. Seven former winners are members of the World Golf Hall of Fame: Seve Ballesteros, Nick Faldo, Sandy Lyle, Greg Norman, Patty Sheehan, Lee Trevino, Karrie Webb, plus major winners Laura Davies and Ian Woosnam.

In 2005 the Seniors Open Amateur Championship was staged on the Duke’s and Duchess’ courses and in 2011 the English Amateur Championship was staged on the Duchess’ and Marquess’ courses. In 2014, Woburn is one of four venues used to host final qualifying for The Open Championship.
