New Zealand Golf Club: You’ll not forget the heather and rhododendrons at this beautifully maintained and uncomplicated heathland course, another of Surrey's many gems.
Although slightly on the short side by modern day standards, with one par-5 and five par-3s, New Zealand will fully test your game with many fine par-4s. Accurate driving and a good short game will serve you well here.
The flat terrain may give a similar character to some of the holes, while all around is wonderfully mature woodland that once formed a corner of the once mighty Royal Forest of Windsor. As for the Club's name - the New Zealand connection comes from the colonial associations of the former landowners of the land on which the course is laid out.
Visitors welcome on weekdays; no outside visitors on weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Cash or UK cheque only. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2019].
Players generally walk this course.
The counties of Berkshire and Surrey are home to the UK's largest concentration of heathland golf courses. Between 1890 and 1910, as the game of golf rapidly developed throughout Britain and Ireland, land was eagerly sought for the creation of many new golf courses. The fast-draining, gently undulating, open heathland, found in Surrey and Berkshire, was felt to be ideal terrain for the creation of golf courses to serve the nation's capital and its surrounds. The likes of Sunningdale, Woking, West Hill, Worplesdon, Swinley Forest, New Zealand, St George's Hill and Walton Heath, were all established in these early days.
2019 Golf World rating: 84th best course in Britain & Ireland; 41st best in England.

PGA Championship: the first men’s major of the year will be contested at TPC Harding Park, without spectators being present (Aug 6-9).
European Senior (Staysure) Tour: the Europe-based over-50s tour for men has taken the reluctant step of cancelling the entire 2020 season, based on the additional coronavirus risk associated with the age demographic of the players.
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.

Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
