Designed by Willie Park Junior, Sunningdale’s Old Course was opened for play in 1901. The course takes shape through a vast landscape of hills, heath and woodlands and is lined with pine, birch and oak tress, providing a majestic sanctuary for golfers of all levels. The course was considered revolutionary for its time but was modified by club secretary and captain in the early years, Harry Colt, to which the changes are said to have dramatically improved the layout.
Considered one of the best inland courses in the United Kingdom, many amateur and professional events have been hosted at the site. There are many stunning holes at play out here, but the 5th at Sunningdale’s Old is rated as one of the best holes in the world (see first image below).
