Course Overview

From London’s heathland to the cliffs of Northern Ireland to sandy sites in the Netherlands, Colt enjoyed many fine sites in Europe over his extended career. One of the best is this property, where Colt teased a diverse collection of holes from the rolling landscape. His placement of the green sites — some on knobs or plateaus, some at ground level and the magnificent 10th green at the hole’s low point beyond a hillock — define the challenge. Perhaps most beguiling is the ½-par 4th, which plays downhill and only 272 yards but where it is shocking how quickly one goes from the hunter to the hunted. (Photo: Courtesy St. George’s Hill)

3 things to know

  • Hole everyone talks about

    No. 4, par-4, 272 yards: This short par-4 is the definition of risk-reward. Take a crack at the green over the bunkers and a birdie is within your grasp. But fail to clear the hazards and bogey (or worse) could be in store. This hole requires thought and execution to conquer it.
  • Best non-golf amenity

    The clubhouse terrace is a perfect place to unwind after your round, and it features terrific views of the heathland layout down below.
  • Insider tip

    Harry Colt is considered one of the finest architects of all time across the pond, and this is one of his greatest layouts. Be sure to appreciate all this heathland gem has to offer.
