Set in 135 acres of Surrey heathland, Camberley Heath is a stunning course that was shaped by the famous designer Harry Colt.
The layout is framed by towering pines and is renowned for its mature, springy fairways and gently undulating greens.
The sandy heathland turf offers excellent natural drainage and makes ball striking a delight.
The club has worked hard to keep the feeling of the course much the same as when Colt created it over 100 years ago back in 1913 during recent renovations.
At the same time, the club have ensured that it sets up perfectly to cope with the demands of the modern game.
Camberley Heath has hosted the Lagonda Trophy and has also been a regional qualifying venue for the Open Championship.
The fairways have matured over the years, although they retain many of the original features. They have benefited from a sustainable programme of forestry and heathland conservation management using modern greenkeeping methods.
The hardest hole on the course is the 10th, a long and demanding par 4. The par-3 2nd and par-5 3rd form a wonderful early combination.
The finishing hole requires players to carry a large heather bank before playing up towards the clubhouse.
Camberley Heath has hosted the Lagonda Trophy and has also been a regional qualifying venue for the Open Championship. Famous names to have played there include James Braid, J. H. Taylor, Harry Vardon and double Open champion Tommy Armour.
