Army Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Army Golf Club Est. 1883

Where2Golf says: 

Army Golf Club, home to a pleasant tree-lined parkland layout, is located close to Aldershot, a garrison town and the "Home of the British Army". Although the club has military origins, for many years it has had a predominantly civilian membership.

The course is situated on 165 acres of low, undulating woodland between Farnborough and Aldershot. Included in the par of 71 are three par-3s and two par-5s. Today's course layout was established in the 1960s, with mature trees and rhododendrons bordering many of the fairways, and providing a blaze of colour in the spring.

Several bridges on the course span water ditches that either run alongside or across some fairways. Each bridge bears the cap badge of a different British Army regiment.

Did you know?

In 1883, 1st Battalion, The Cameronians, was serving in Aldershot. As a Scottish regiment, there would certainly have been golfers amongst them. Their officers were members of the Royal Aldershot Officers’ Club, and may well have been responsible for a ground swell of interest in golf, as evidenced by a paragraph in ‘The Surrey and Hants News’ on Oct 13, 1883. The short paragraph read: “GOLF: it is proposed to establish a Golf Club on the Aldershot Camp. Officers interested are requested to communicate with Lt Col Sartorious VC (Deputy Assistant Quartermaster General) on the arrangements to be made.”

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
