Around the same time that Bletchley Leisure Centre came under discussion, Bletchley Urban District Council realised that the town's expanded population might welcome the opportunity to play golf. Existing golf courses were fully subscribed, so the Council acquired Windmill Hill Farm - a site of some 182 acres - and part of Tattenhoe Farm. Part of this land was developed for housing, leaving around 111 acres for a golf course.
Former British Open Golf Champion, Henry Cotton, helped to design the layout of the championship length course. A restaurant and shop were also erected.

The course was opened on 16th May 1972. It allowed the residents of Bletchley to play golf without the need to join expensive private clubs - a role it still fulfils to this day.
