Golf Course Review

Camberley Heath Golf Club is a town in Surrey, England close to Hampshire and Berkshire. Lying just south of the M3, the course has been surrounded by residential housing but has a secluded character about it.

Colt, Waterer and Simpson

The course is found on sandy, undulating heathland adorned with heather, gorse, bracken and pines. Opened for play in 1913, the club was officially opened on January 1, 1914. Although it was designed by none other than Harry Colt, Mr FG Waterer completed construction and several alterations when Mr Colt left for America.

Of interest, Tom Simpson includes it in his list of golf courses. It wouldn't be the first time he claimed associates work as his own. However, the publication is dated prior to Harry Colt's death so he must have had a share to some degree.

Camberley Heath GC Routing

The course is routed out in two halves. Holes 1 to 3 and Holes 13 to 18 holes are found on one parcel of land. Holes 5 through 11 are found on a separate parcel of land to the north. The two sets of holes are linked by the par 4 4th hole out and the par 4 12th hole in. When opened for play, the course measured 6365 yards. The course measures 6400 yards and plays to a Par of 71.
