Golf Course Says
Walton Heath New golf course has the same heathland setting as the Old course, and shared a designer in Herbert Fowler, and can play up to 7200 yards with a par of 72. A gentle start might relax the golfer but the New Course at Walton Heath gets progressively harder as play goes on. An outstanding course the Walton Heath New Course is well worthy of its reputation for attracting the best golfers and the cream of society: how many other clubs could boast of having a king and four prime ministers among its membership? Walton Heath Golf Club certainly can in the shape of King Edward VIII, Lloyd George, Bonar Law, Arthur Balfour and Winston Churchill.
Major events held at Walton Heath such as the 1981Ryder Cup win for the 'Dream Team' of the USA have often been played over a composite 18 hole comprising the very best of both Old and New courses.
Golfalot Review of Walton Heath Golf Club New Course
The Walton Heath New course is a little shorter than its sister Old course and thankfully not as penal. The main difference is that whilst heather still abounds, there is a little more room off the faiway before you hit it. That's not to say that this is an easy course. Far from it, as strategic bunkering and ditches across the fairway make Walton Heath New course a more strategic test than a test of power. Play safe from the tee and you will probably score well as many of the holes are not overly long and there are lots of birdie opportunities right from the first hole. Our favourite holes were 3 and 9 where cross bunkers and heather forced you to lay up as close as you could to the end of the fairway so you could get a good shot to the green. Great fun on a classic heathland course.
