Hindhead Golf Club

What they say...

Hindhead is a beautiful heathland course set in glorious surroundings and ranks amongst the very best of Britain’s heathland courses.
Originally designed by J.H Taylor, the course sits easily in a natural terrain with fairways bordered by glorious heather and tall pines. The early spring brings with it additional splashes of colour from the rhododendrons and azaleas. With its elevated position, the second nine offers some far-reaching views of the beautiful Surrey countryside.
Founded in 1904 by a group of enthusiasts that included Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle the club boasts a rich history and continues to be enjoyed by members and guests alike.

Stunning golf course with picturesque views

May 29, 2024

This is a stunning golf course with many holes that are truly picturesque to see and fun to play. Beyond the visual appeal, what I Iiked most about this course was its playability for most standards of golfer. Yes, the trouble is there, but there is nearly always an alternative shot for the players with less length or height. This is very clever design and is to be commended.

The par 3s are glorious. Only one isn’t reachable for the average amateur and they include the wonderful test of the very short, very downhill 6th which is a delight to play.

In my opinion, this is a great course for most women. The carries off the tee have been kept to 100 yards from the reds (the 5,400 course.) The trouble is punishing, but it is avoidable if you can keep the ball straight. You can plot your way around these holes and make a good score with wise decisions.

There are loos after 9 and 16. There is women’s stock in the clubhouse and the changing rooms were large and well equipped.

A beautiful course with varied and interesting holes

January 23, 2023

Hindhead is a really pretty Surrey course, with beautiful azaleas and rhododendrons of many colours in the Spring and purple flowering heather later in the year. I have played the course a number of times in club matches so cannot comment on the green fee or how easy it is to gain access as a non-member, but I definitely recommend a visit.

Hindhead is a course of two halves, the first running up and down valleys, with a couple of steep climbs, so an electric trolley is recommended. There are some challenging down hill tee shots and tricky heather and gorse to contend with if you stray from the fairway. The back nine, following the welcome halfway hut with toilets and hot and cold refreshments, is much more level. On both nines there are some long carries over heather. There are some blind shots too, where you can be surprised by where your ball finishes. The holes are all interesting and a good test of golf.

I have always found the members friendly and welcoming and the food is very good. The Ladies Locker Room is accessed from outside, near the Proshop, as well as from the central corridors of the main Clubhouse. There is a large putting green near the Clubhouse terrace. There is also a good view of the adjacent 18th green from the terrace - a lovely place to sit on a sunny day and watch the players completing their rounds.
