Come and play Worplesdon which is one of the classic Surrey heathland courses, laid out in 1908 by J F Abercromby; the greens and bunkers were constructed by Willie Park Junior. Abercromby was one of the most celebrated golf architects of his time, while Park was a prolific course designer and constructor, who created the Old Course at Sunningdale. The course remains much as it was set out by Abercromby, and provides a fine test for the club golfer in very pretty surroundings.
The “signature hole” is the 10th, which is particularly attractive when the rhododendrons are in bloom. But the visitor should not be disheartened by the expanse of water, for Bridley Pond is the only major water hazard on the course. The remainder of the holes wander through wooded heathland.
