Sudbury Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Sudbury Golf Club Est. 1896

Where2Golf says: 

Sudbury Golf Club: Originally founded as Acton Golf Club in 1896, the club moved in 1920 to its present location at what was then Horsenden Farm, alongside the Grand Union Canal. The renowned Harry Colt was charged with designing the new course and the firm of Fowler & Simpson set about implementing Colt's design.

The course has many recognisable "Colt" characteristics: two nine-hole loops that each head out-and-back from the clubhouse; good-width but never overly generous fairways; a mix of straightaway and doglegging hole; "pulpit" (elevated) greens defended by left and right front bunkers, and a relative absence of water hazards (Colt was aware of the pain of golfers losing balls into water). Typical of so many of his courses, Sudbury is a Colt design that gives equal consideration to both the "accomplished player" and what he called the "duffer". The lightly tree-lined holes enjoy a modest degree of elevation change, but blind shots are kept to a minimum (another welcome Colt trait).

Although residing in the heart of London's western suburbs, only at the good-length downhill par-4 1st do you play alongside a road. The remainder of the course offers a peaceful parkland oasis, flanked by another golf club to the west (the 9-hole Horsenden Hill GC) and the Grand Union Canal to the south. Housing flanks only one hole, the leftside of the tough but bunkerless uphill par-4 18th. As ever, Colt has you signing off with one of the layout's most challenging holes.

Did you know?

Sudbury Golf Club is located alongside the Grand Union Canal, a vital part of the British canal system that links most of Britain's major cities. At one time a vital trade route between London and Birmingham, today the Grand Union Canal is mainly used for leisure boating, not least by the older style "narrowboats" that once plied the waterways in great numbers. Just two miles from the club is the home of English football - the world famous Wembley Stadium.

Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
