Course info

Ranked no.4 in England’s Top 100 courses, no.39 in the UK & Ireland and no. 47 in the World

Our 3rd visit to this stunning course, designed by arguably the master craftsman of all golf architects, Harry Colt. When working down the road at Sunningdale (where we visit next month), many think only Colt could have had the genius to see the potential of the desolate heathland and forest laid out before him.

Meandering through beautiful countryside, the heather, pines, azaleas and rhododendrons give a totally natural, unspoiled feel to it. It has the aura and tradition of 2 similar courses we visit later in the year, Royal Ashdown Forest and New Zealand GC.

Swinley is notoriously difficult to access for the average golfer. Visitor restrictions, as with many top clubs, are tight, but by playing on a Monday, we can play in 3 balls in the morning. After a 4 course carvery lunch, anyone wishing to play again in the afternoon may do so, with Afternoon Tea to welcome them back afterwards. All this is included in the price. Peter will be on hand to organise all those wishing to play in the afternoon, with the added bonus that 3 balls & 4 balls are allowed. A wonderful day in prospect.
