Queenwood Golf Club: Queenwood is a private club, enjoyed by its small and exclusive membership and their invited guests. The following description comes courtesy of David McLay-Kidd, the course's Scottish-born designer: the site is tranquil parkland, in an area well known for its classic courses, including Sunningdale, Walton Heath, Woking, Swinley Forest, and more.
Queenwood returns to the heathland traditions of the courses noted above, all of which have stood the test of time. Heather is a key design element at Queenwood, employed both for its strategic and aesthetic values, most notably on the bunker faces. They are pretty to look at but brutal to escape when a ball holds up in the heather. The routing optimizes the full site, zigging and zagging, constantly changing direction and exploring the relatively open landscape, which gives the course an expansive feel. The putting greens are easily the toughest and fastest I have ever built.
Queenwood is a private club. Guests may only play if hosted by a member.
Players generally walk this course.
To get an idea of the calibre of golfing member at this very exclusive club, Queenwood can boast Darren Clarke as a back-to-back winner of its club championship in recent years. Ernie Els and many other top-level Tour professionals are also on the members list.
