Established in 1907 Burhill Golf Club is one of the finest golf venues in Surrey. Nestled in leafy parkland on the outskirts of Walton on Thames, Burhill has two superb 18 hole golf courses, each very different in style, character and golfing challenge. Its magnificent courses make it a popular corporate and golf day venue. Burhill’s Georgian mansion clubhouse, dating back to 1726, is simply stunning. It has been residence for several important and affluent individuals and the setting for some incredible historical achievements. Sir Barnes Wallis for example used Burhill as a base whilst inventing his famous ‘Bouncing Bomb’.
For the next five years, it is a regional qualifying venue for the British Open and also has hosted 8 Euro Pro Tour Events.
A typical Surrey rolling parkland course. The Old Course is not overly long by today’s standards at 6479 yards, it is nonetheless a thoroughly enjoyable track. The smooth greens are extremely quick and have some treacherous borrows which often deceive even the low handicap golfer. Opened in 1907, it has retained its charm with some of the original features blending well with recent course changes, which have ensured today’s longer hitters are still well tested.
This remarkable championship course opened in 2001. Its large, fast greens are well protected by strategic bunkering, not to mention a number of water hazards including the River Mole which meanders through the course. At just under 7000 yards from the back tees, it doesn’t lack for length. The par 3 18th is the feature hole – played over the River Mole in front of the beautiful clubhouse is the feature hole that can jangle the nerves of the most experienced of golfers.
