Sunningdale’s Old Course, which opened in 1901, was laid out by Willie Park Jnr. It is pure enchantment that characterizes Sunningdale Old. Virtually every hole is played in splendid and beautiful isolation, and in harmony with nature. There is subtlety here, a measure of drama, and a wealth of that one indispensable ingredient, pleasurable excitement. No wonder it may be the most beloved inland course in the British Isles.
All that being said, there are those who like the New Course, which opened in 1923, at least as wel. The New course is perhaps a bit more rugged than the Old one, a bit more masculine, if you will.
Sunningdale’s Old Course was designed by twice winner of The Open Championship, Willie Park Junior and opened in 1901. The land on which it was constructed belonged to St. John’s College, Cambridge and mainly consisted of heather, gorse and pine trees.

Maybe this is one of the most impressive features of this club, the huge amount of space and quiteness these courses are situated. The design of the Ne…

I wanted to play Sunningdale for a long time and today I could play both courses.
I only can say than waiting so long was really worth.
One of the best places I’ve been playing golf.

Sunningdale, or should we say 'Stunningdale' is one of a kind. I played a lot of heathland courses in the Surrey region, but Sunnindale is top of the list. Every hole is an aesthetic feast. Great maintenance, lay-out and facilities. Just magical!
