Overview

Blackmoor Golf Club would get much more attention if it sat in Berkshire or Surrey. Don't be fooled though, it is as good as many of its neighbours despite not winning the postcode lottery.

Golf Course Review

Construction of the Blackmoor Golf Club began in 1911 with Harry Colt designing the course and Carter & Sons building the greens. 13 holes were built before construction was halted by WW1. Not unlike Shiskine, the course was played as a 12 hole course until it was officially opened in 1924 as an 18 hole course. Harry Colt returned in 1930 to make minor alterations.

Harry Colt's Design at Blackmoor Golf Club

With the exception of the 2nd hole, the course can be attributed to Harry Colt. The stretch of holes from 5 to 14 is from HS Colt before WW1. The closing stretch from Holes 15-18 was designed and built before WW2.

The breakdown is as follows:

  • 1914 - Holes 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14
  • 1930s - Holes 1, 4, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 3rd green rebuild
  • 1980s - Hole 2
