Kingswood Golf & Country Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1928

Kingswood Golf & Country Club: Located not too far from Walton Heath's illustrious pair of heathland golf courses, lesser-known Kingswood also lays down an excellent golfing challenge. This pleasantly tree-lined and always well maintained parkland course, was in fact designed by Walton's Heath's professional of 45 years - the legendary James Braid.

There is a quiet garden-like atmosphere here, with trees of many varieties elegantly lining the holes. If you stray from the good width fairways into the trees, finding your ball is usually not too big a problem, but getting to the green in regulation becomes a distinctly more tricky proposition.

The attractive array of fairway and greenside bunkering has recently been refurbished to a standard that would certainly meet with the approval of Braid himself. Included in the refurbishment programme was the testing par-5 5th, now unmistakably the layout's signature hole. Although not the best known of courses around London, this delightful Braid gem is certainly one that's worth discovering.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
