Uxbridge Golf Course Hillingdon
Summary: In 1934 127.86 acres of former parkland of Harefield Place Estate was purchased by Middlesex County Council; the house was later refurbished as offices in 1983-5. The grounds were partly developed for housing and partly laid out as Uxbridge Golf Course, which opened in the 1940s. The landscape has one or two big standard oak trees remaining, now much altered by typical linear golf course planting of birch and other trees.
