Sunningdale is blessed with two championship courses laid out on the most glorious piece of heathland winding their way through heather, gorse and pine, each one of which has its own individual charm and beauty.
With both the membership and the amount of golf being played increasing after the First World War, the Committee were concerned to reduce the pressure on the Old Course. Developed from an original 9 hole course and 168 acres of Chobham Common, purchased from Lord Onslow the New course opened for play on 10th November, 1923. The architect was Harry Colt.
It is truly the most beautiful golf course, and one of the toughest. The fairways are like most golf courses’ putting greens, they are cut so tight that you have to hit the perfect strike to get your yardages spot on otherwise you will be in trouble.
It’s a long course as well measuring over 6,700 yards, take a look at the scorecard. sunningdale scorecard
