detroitgolfer review

Most famous for hosting the Mixed Foursomes scratch competition every fall since 1921, Worplesdon's most acclaimed member, Joyce Wethered, won the event eight times with seven different partners... including once with Bernard Darwin. Molly Gourlay of nearby Camberley Heath, an architect who worked with Tom Simpson also won this event twice. It should also be noted that J Wethered was the club President from 1963 until 1997, the year she died. Despite being less than 6500 yards from the back markers, Willie Park Jr was able to route a course which uses the rolling land to enhance the difficulty. Fairways tend to be quite generous, although gaining the best angle for creating options of approach is at a premium. Abercromby is thought to have designed the greens and bunker scheme. Although, the course features many large front- to- back and two/three tiered greens mixed with a variety of more subtle surfaces which are Park Jr hallmarks. Sometime in the early 30s, Colt was called upon to revise the bunkering and it is clear the bunker scheme we see today is very different from that shown in aerials of 1922. It could well be that the precise nature of approaching on #s 4,5,11,12,13 and 15 are down to his handy work. No matter who is responsible, Worplesdon features many very well placed bunkers. Regardless of the exact attributions, any course with contributions by Colt, Abercromby Braid and Park Jr is bound to impress and Worplesdon is indeed impressive. In recent years the club has undertaken a programme of tree removal and underbrush clearance to great effect. Interior views have opened up and play from the many stands of trees is more than possible. Although it should be said that many more trees could easily be removed and none would be the wiser. I find Worplesdon to be an absolute delight to play. If the entire course were the quality and variety of the back nine all would sing its praises as loud as any course in England. Even so, Worplesdon is of a very high standard and should be better known. A few holes on the front nine may not be up to the task, but these are minor quibbles when there are so many very fine holes. Worplesdon is more than a casual trip filler or one of the "three Ws"; its many great 3s,4s and 5s are proof positive of this. For visiting golfers to London hoping to land bigger fish... look no further... Worplesdon is big fish.
