Welcome to The Hindhead Golf Club in Surrey

   

Situated about one and a half miles north of the A3, this ‘gem’ of a course is a must for every golfer, whatever their handicap.

The Hindhead Golf Club was formed in 1904 when a small group of golfing enthusiasts, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the first Club President, began the task of converting barren moorland into a course that members and visitors alike still enjoy today.

Hindhead is a top 50 English course; in a glorious natural setting high in the Surrey Hills, with magnificent views, it ranks among the best of Britain’s heathland courses.  One of Hindhead’s unique features is the contrast between the two halves of the course. The holes from the second to the ninth follow valleys formed during the ice age; the narrowness of the fairways, together with the slopes of heather and trees, add not only to the challenge of the game but also to the sheer breathtaking beauty of the course. In the spring this vista is enhanced with a profusion of colour from rhododendrons and azaleas. The first and the last nine holes are laid out on an upper plateau, with slightly wider fairways, but still retain a delightful pine and heather landscape.

Hindhead boasts an illustrious history. Early members included the Prime Minister David Lloyd George, R.C.Robertson-Glasgow and the Maharajah of Baroda; and in the early days the famous triumvirate of J.H.Taylor, who designed the course, James Braid and Harry Vardon played exhibition matches, as did Ted Ray, another Open Champion. Dai Rees was the Club Professional from 1937-1946; he credited Hindhead’s narrow fairways with developing his accurate driving.  Peter Alliss, known the world over as the voice of golf, and also one of Britain’s most successful golfers, has been a club member for over 30 years, and often mentions the club during his entertaining commentaries.

Hindhead is not excessively long at 6390 yards, but the challenge of the terrain coupled with the fine condition of the course and the greens in particular, beautifully presented by the club’s excellent team of greenkeepers, pose a fine test for all golfers. This has been recognised by the R&A who have selected Hindhead as a regional pre-qualifying course for the Open Championship in recent years.
