Blackmoor Golf Club

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Blackmoor Golf Club Est. 1913

Where2Golf says: 

Blackmoor Golf Club is home to yet another in a long line of classic Surrey / Hampshire wooded heathland courses where heather, gorse, silver birch, oak and fir trees are in abundance, and the demands on your golf are more to do with course management than with power-hitting. And yes, this is another of Harry Colt's masterly creations incorporating his customary skillful use of the occasionally undulating terrain - the elevated tee to elevated green par-4 18th must be one of the best looking holes in inland golf. The other 17 deftly designed holes incorporate great bunkering, occasional use of water ditches (watch out at the par-4 1st !) and excellent greens. In this peaceful setting, you'll need to concentrate on hitting fairways to set up some demanding approaches to well guarded greens. If that doesn't work, just stand back and admire this wonderful area of wooded heathland and, of course, Colt's handiwork.

Did you know?

Blackmoor takes its name from the dark purple heather that abounds in this area. The club's emblem (members will tell you its a hound rather than a dog), comes directly from the family crest of the Earl of Selborne, on whose estate the course is located. An almost identical emblem is used by Selborne Sun Resort in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. You guessed right, the same family owned the South African estate as well. One of England's prestigious men's amateur evnts, the Selborne Salver is held at Blackmoor each year, and in former times the course was used as an Open Championship regional qualifying venue.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
