Hindhead Golf Club was founded in 1904 by no other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The quality of golf in the South of London is unbelievable high and so is Hindhead. I was lucky enough to be invited by a member and really enjoyed my day there. The course is currently undergoing an extensive bunker restoration supervised by famous golf course architect Martin Ebert. All but 2 holes are finished so far and I really liked the look of the new bunkers. If there is a minor complain, then only that the color of the sand is maybe a touch to flashy (white). But all in all, my compliments to the work done there. Hindhead's front 9 are very unique compared to other heathland courses around London as they are laid out through some ice age valleys. These holes wouldn't be out of place on any Austrian golf course but it's pretty unique for London. I found the holes very interesting to play. The tee shot on the 2nd hole is totally blind and you are really not sure if there is a fairway anywhere. But there is more room than you think. The par 3 6th hole is a nice dropshot par 3 with beautiful long views. My favourite hole on the front 9 is the par 4 9th. It's a long uphill par 4 playing 419 yards. You will need to hit your tee shot into the valley. The green is beautifully framed by colourful bushes and flowers. The back 9 play on a hillside heathland plateau. This is true heathland golf and some might even argue that the back 9 are better than the unique front 9. My favourite hole there was the medium length par 4 12th hole. It's a dogleg right and a fairway wood or hybrid club should be enough from the tee box as you will run out of fairway otherwise unless you can fade the ball. Your approach is then downhill into a punchbowl green. The right play is to land the ball well in front of the green and hope for the best. 😊
