Course Description

Description:



Swinley Forest Golf Club is a very
welcoming and lovely golf course situated in the well-known Surrey/Berkshire
sand belt. Its distinctiveness lies in the fact that it can hardly be labeled
as a conventional golf course despite it has been open for over one hundred
years.



History: 



Its history is not as extended as other
golf courses in England; however its history maybe well preserved in the
players’ memories. The course opened officially in 1909 as a result of Harry
Colt’s delicate design.  The course is generally
considered to have its natural beauty and unique style, with nothing to
remember its neighbors’ glamorous style. The position and architect of the
green parts and sets of the course definitely make it unique; not to mention
the short and one shot holes which give dynamics for the play. Swinley is a gorgeous
course especially in spring when the fairways are in full blossom and leading
to the mature pines.



Quotes: 



Henry Cotton has  excellently sum up the essence of Swinley
Forest : “If Augusta National is the cathedral in the pines, Swinley is the
holy grail.”
