Walton Heath (Old) One of the cluster of excellent heathland courses in Surrey, Walton Heath opened to high praise in 1903 and ever since has attracted plaudits from aficionados of the game, who also sing the praises of the New Course, which was extended to 18 holes in 1913. If you are allergic to heather, either literally or metaphorically, do not visit because if your ball strays from the fairway you will almost certainly find some and playing from it is damned nigh impossible. Walton Heath has been a venue for the Ryder Cup in 1981, the 2011 Senior Open Championship and several European Tour events. Tree-lined, heavily bunkered and with firm, fast greens that always seem to be in superb condition, Walton Heath is an excellent examination of every facet of your game. It is difficult to argue with Bernard Darwin, who wrote: ‘If there is something that golfers want and do not get at Walton Heath I do not know what it can be.’ 19th Best Golf Course in the UK   The Club was founded in 1903 and the course was opened for play in May 1904. James Braid had already become the Club's professional and was to remain in that capacity until his death in 1950. The course was laid out by W. Herbert Fowler, a leading amateur golfer. It was his first golf course venture and he went on to become one of the leading golf course architects of his era, both in the U.K. and America.It is a tribute to Fowler's genius that he created one of the finest examples of heathland golf, which so closely resembles the traditional seaside links courses, out of a jungle of heather, gorse and bracken. It is a further testament to his creativity that the Old Course with a championship length of 7,351 yards is currently ranked  81 in the top 100 courses in the world. The New Course was opened in 1907, and is comfortably ranked in the Top 100 courses in the British Isles - a superb test of golf that plays to a championship length of 7,165 yards.
