Worplesdon Preview

Worplesdon Preview

Worplesdon Golf Club is one of the prettiest and most delightful of Surrey’s many heath and heather courses and it’s arguably the best of the trinity of “Ws” (West Hill and Woking being the other two). It is set amongst glorious heather, chestnut and pine trees. John Abercromby’s inaugural design dates back to 1908; greens and bunkers were constructed by Willie Park Junior.

Little has changed after more than 100 years. It’s not a long course at just less than 6,500 yards, but it’s supremely challenging and driving accuracy is far more important than length.
The front nine plays across stunning undulating terrain, so expect some awkward stances. The back nine is sited on relatively even ground. The greens are always in fabulous condition and are lightning fast with some subtle borrows and undulations.

The 500 World’s Greatest Golf Holes features the 11th, a 520-yard par five: “Surrounded by brilliant heathland, this interesting hole has seen its challenges change with the times, but its supreme strategic character remains.”

The par threes at Worplesdon are especially strong and the 175-yard 13th is an absolute cracker, surrounded by bunkers and often rated as one of the best par threes in the UK.

It’s a real privilege to play this quiet and elegant course. The springy fairways roll gently up and down, flanked by many mature trees. The profusion of heather provides stunning seasonal colour and a real challenge in finding the wayward golf ball. The clubhouse is one of the most pleasant in all the land and very welcoming.

Centenary 2012

Our aims for Centenary Year

  Re-energise the principle upon which our Society was formed back in 1921.
  Improve relations with the Port and the Shipping lines.
  Provide a thoroughly enjoyable golfing season on a selection of top quality courses.
  Arrange a Flagship Event at a premier golfing venue.
  Organise a special event, possibly away from a golfing venue where in a social and celebratory style we can toast our first 100 years - or maybe a golfing trip to play courses associated with the Society's history.

Planned activities (provisional at this stage):

  Hankley Common
  Royal Winchester

Celebratory Social Function with spouses. 

Please let your Committee know, through me, any thoughts that you might have on celebrating this momentous year in the Society's history!
