Surrey Golf Tour

Surrey is undoubtedly one of the most outstanding regions for high quality golf courses anywhere in the world. Golfers from around the world will talk with great reverence about the Melbourne Sandbelt, and the sand hills around Pinehurst in North Carolina, but the Surrey Sandbelt which stretches just over the border into Berkshire, has a great many classic heathland golf courses, that are simply magnificent.

Camberley Heath Golf Club is a Harry Colt Classic, set in 135 acres of Surrey heathland, framed by towering pines the golf course is a true test for any golfer. Renowned for its mature fairways and subtle greens, the course still remains faithful to Colt's early vision. The natural contours of the Surrey Countryside have been used to enhance the course with demanding holes requiring accurate and thoughtful shots through avenues of pine and over acres of lush heather.

Foxhills offers three quality golf courses, combining parkland and heathland to provide challenges to golfers of every level. The Club’s two 18 hole Championship courses – Longcross and Bernard Hunt – are ranked among the best golf courses in England, and are examples of Surrey golf courses at their best.

The Bernard Hunt Course is named after Bernard Hunt, MBE, who was former head professional in the 80’s & 90’s. He was the first head professional at Foxhills and served for 25 years. Bernard won 30 times on the European PGA Tour, played in the Ryder Cup 10 times, twice as Captain, and won the Tour's Order of Merit in 1961 and 1963.

Not surprisingly, the course that's named after him offers more than a few serious challenges for club golfers. The 10th hole, for instance, is a 445-yard par-4 that plays downhill initially and then sweeps uphill to a green protected by two bunkers in front of the putting surface. You have to keep your tee shot to the left of the fairway to have the best angle into a green which slopes wickedly from back right to front left. It is undoubtedly the most difficult hole on the inward nine and one where a par feels like a birdie.

The Longcross is widely considered the very best example of a typical tree-lined Surrey course. It winds through Scots pine, beech and silver birch trees and is very reminiscent of many of the great Surrey heathland courses.

Worplesdon Golf Club, near Woking and Guildford, Surrey, is a private members club featuring a well maintained heathland golf course which is recognised as being a great test of golfing skills with fair protection being provided from its heather, its bunkers and the defining woodlands.
