Full Course Review

Reigate Heath Golf Club was founded by four friends in 1895. The site chosen was a 120-acre site which is now the largest heath in East Surrey. Permission was granted to develop the course as long as lady members had equal rights to the men. After assurances were given, Tom Dunn was called upon to establish the 9 hole layout.

Walton Heath Golf Club is just down the road and its professional, James Braid, was known to frequent the course. He praised the 4th and 8th holes. The 4th he knew was played from the present 4th tee to the present 5th green. The 8th played from the 2nd tee to a green which was situated in front of the house on the present 2nd fairway.

The current course layout is a nine-hole affair with two sets of tees. The extra tees on the opener, second, seventh create three genuinely different holes. The others are variations on the theme.

The presentation of the course is authentic. There is no confusion with other manicured courses and the course plays firm, fast and drains exceptionally well.
