The Harry Colt Project exists to create a curated archive of the life and work of golf course architect, Harry Colt. Below is a chronological list of Harry Colt golf courses. The information has been gleaned from Donald Steel’s books: Classic Golf Links & The Golf Course Guide, Cornish & Whitten’s The Architects of Golf, Fred Hawtree’s book Colt & Co. as well as individual club websites.

  1. Robert Cleisham says:

    Hello I’m the course manager of Stockport Golf Club and I believe that Stockport golf club in Cheshire should be on this list. Stockport was laid out by sandy herd and constructed by the head professional in 1912 but was redesigned by Harry Colt in 1919 and has many existing features apart from the bunker complete reconstruction in 1996 by hawtree. Would it be possible for Stockport to enter your list ?

    Kind Regards Robert Cleisham Course manager
