  • This century-old private club, located near Woking and Guildford, is renowned for the Worplesdon Foursomes, which for four decades was a significant part of the English championship circuit when amateur play dominated; competition took place in June through August, and then during the fall the leading male and female players met for the foursomes, an event that marked the close of the golfing season. Pretty much every well-known amateur from the first half of the twentieth century emerged a winner here, having been attracted by the outstanding conditions and the enjoyable experience. Little has changed since the course's design by J. F. Abercromby with a little help from Willie Park Jr., though it was lengthened a bit to accommodate tournament play. As usually with courses constructed in the early 1900s, the opening holes ease the player into a round, after which things get more interesting, and the last stretch is quite challenging.

    It is so difficult to have a favourite of the 3 "W's", but this one is probably mine, purely because I have had the opportunity to play it the most. From the downhill tee shot on the first to the uphill tee shot on the par-3 4th, you know this course will test every club in your bag. Very subtle and tricky greens too. The club is very friendly and similar in style to the rest of Surrey clubhouses.
