Hindhead Golf Club

One of England's least-known heathlands close to London.

Hindhead Golf Club

Surrey, England

Overview

Hindhead Golf Club is located in the small Surrey village bearing its name. Found in the South Downs National Park near the Hampshire Border it is a perfect second 18 holes after Hankley Common Golf Club a few miles away.

Hindhead Golf Club is a heathland golf course dating from 1904 and founded by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle of Sherlock Holmes fame. JH Taylor laid out the course in 1904 with 12 holes open for play. A year later, the additional six holes were brought into play and officially opened by a match between James Braid and JH Taylor.

Five sets of tees provide appropriate tests for all calibre of player. The course can be played from just over 4200 yards to just under 6400 yards. Holes 2 through 9 are routed through valleys before emerging on the upper plateau for the back nine.

In recent years the club has made some continual improvements with tees, greens and bunkers having been rebuilt reducing blindness particularly on the back nine.
