This may come as a surprise to some, but the counties of Surrey & Berkshire, just to the South West of London, are home to the highest number of Top 100 Golf courses anywhere in the UK & Ireland!
From world famous courses such as Sunningdale and Walton Heath, ultra exclusive clubs such Wentworth and Queenwood, to the less well known but equally charming "3 W's" of West Hill, Woking and Worplesdon, the key to this incredible strength in depth lies in the quality of the sand-belt soil. Free draining and fast running, the immaculately presented courses are typically surrounded by pine and/or heather and are among the very best of their type in the world.
For the ultimate Top 100 Golf Tour, take your pick from any of the 36 holes at Sunningdale, Walton Heath or The Berkshire. Or follow in the footsteps of the legendary course architect Harry Colt and see for yourself why he modestly called Swinley Forest "my least bad course".
Wherever you choose to play, be sure to enjoy the fantastic combination of world class golf, spectacular scenery and warm hospitality and discover why many of the tour professionals choose to call this part of the country home.
Home to both of the top ranked inland courses in the whole of the UK & Ireland. Sunningdale is idyllic, picture perfect golf played across stunning undulating heathland with stupendous greens and fairways lined by pine trees and punishing heather. The best 36 holes in the world of golf?
Designed by Herbert Fowler, the pair of courses at Walton Heath have hosted numerous championships including the British Masters, European Open and The Ryder Cup. Huge open expanses of heathland make it feel and play like a championship links, but inside the M25!
Another Herbert Fowler masterpiece, The Berkshire offers 36 holes of rolling heathland golf with tremendous variety. Wildly differing short holes, a terrific collection of par 4's and a plethora of strategic par 5's make The Berkshire one of the most enjoyable days out in golf.
One of the finest inland courses in the UK, St Georges Hill is a quintessential Harry Colt classic. Winding through pine and heather, the exceptionally pretty holes demand strategy and precision, whilst simultaneously providing terrific variety and enormous fun.
Situated within a site of special scientific interest, Hankley Common is a magnificent heathland layout with dry running fairways akin to a links course. The undulating ground provides stunning views throughout with a routing to match.
Famously traditional, Swinley Forest is perhaps the jewel of the Surrey/ Berkshire sand-belt. Designed by Harry Colt, he modestly described it as his "least bad course", quite an accolade when considering his portfolio includes the world ranked #1 at Pine Valley.
