Walton Heath (Old)

History

Walton Heath is one of the world’s most highly regarded golf clubs. Located 15 miles south of London, this wonderful course is yet another gem amongst Surrey’s famous sand belt. Despite the ubiquitous purple heather fringing the fairways, the Old plays and feels like a seaside links – giving you the best of both worlds.

Walton Heath was founded in 1903 and boasts a rich heritage. The club’s first Captain happened to be King Edward VIII and its first Professional, James Braid, won no fewer than five Open Championships during his 45 years at the club. King George VI was an honorary member and Winston Churchill also played here regularly.

Designed by Herbert Fowler, The Old Course will test the full extent of your shot making repertoire. Its length and smaller greens call for more “Scottish shots” to be made at this Surrey haven. When you reach the greens, they play hard, fast and true. If you love golf, you will love playing under the big skies at Walton Heath.
