The three nines that make up this course represent a fine example of how contemporary course design transforms level, unpromising ground—in this case, a former nursery—into a true test of golf. Robert Trent Jones II's vision stands proudly among this landlocked region's numerous outstanding courses. Robert Trent Jones Sr. pioneered deep and wide water hazards (as a response to sculpted bunkering and the development of the sand wedge by Gene Sarazen) and the use of the earth excavated in the process to add relief to courses in such level locales as Florida, and the son uses that approach here. Wisley has named its nines in honor of iconic structures in the area, which explains the "Church + Mill" combination that comprises the tournament course. The superb clubhouse is so impressive that visitors may wonder if it is the work of an architect proper rather than a golf architect.

Brilliant course and practice facilities. Played the Mill and Garden course, some really great holes. Was able to see the swans and cygnets that live on site which added to the experience

I played The Wisley two years ago as a guest of a member. This beautiful private club is only 1 hour drive from London City. Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed 27 holes where each 9-hole loop plays very differently. I really enjoyed the layout and the quality of the course is second to none. The place is very quiet and you are immersed in beautiful parkland surrounded by forest and water hazards. Many European Tour players are members of the club as they offer great practice facilities. When you enter the modern and stylish clubhouse you will enjoy the great gallery of trophies won by their European Tour members.
