A Harry Colt classic in the Surrey countryside
Tandridge Golf Club in Surrey was founded in 1923 and is a very friendly members’ club with an excellent and recently upgraded Harry Colt course and first-class catering. The members are proud of the fact that their fine and varied parkland design is in Golf Monthly’s list of the Top 200 courses in the UK & Ireland.
Opened in 1924, this beautiful parkland course with two distinctly different nines was immediately described in The Times as being “on a grand, bold scale, eminently fair, but devilishly ingenious." Said to have been blessed with more than 300 bunkers, many were removed over the years although the design otherwise remained largely unchanged. Quite recently, however, the club has invested in a substantial 3-year upgrade overseen by Dutch architect and Colt expert, Frank Pont. The ethos has been to use Colt’s design principles and philosophies but aligned with modern golfing technology and tastes.
The bunkering in particular is dramatically bolder, offering new strategic challenges and visual splendour. There are some new tees and the course is a little longer with the first and ninth both now par 5s for all. In essence, there has been an improvement to the playing characteristics and enjoyment of every hole, and the spectacular 14th is now challenged for the accolade of signature hole by the creation of new tees at the 18th.
