History

Founded at the turn of the twentieth century, Sunningdale’s Old Course was designed by double Open Championship winner, Willie Park Junior. The wonderful Old Course, one of Britain’s prettiest inland courses, has stood the test of time and still poses a formidable challenge to even the longest of hitters today.

Legendary course architect and Club Secretary, Harry Colt refined the course’s layout; moving the 4th, 7th and 12th greens to where they stand to this day. In 1926, Bobby Jones shot a “perfect round” of 66 (33 shots, 33 putts) here to qualify for The Open Championship in Lytham and St Annes, which he would duly go on to win.
