Established in 1895, Goring & Streatley Golf Club is a Downland course set in an area of outstanding natural beauty with panoramic views of the Thames Valley. Much of the course was designed by Harry Colt, who was also responsible for Sunningdale and Wentworth. Goring and Streatley is a varied and physically challenging course.
West Byfleet Golf Club was formed in 1922. The original course was designed by Cuthbert Butchart, a much respected professional of his time, whose projects included Worplesdon, West Hill, Hunstanton and Royal County Down. Although the odd hole has been lost and others changed, the majority of the course remains faithful to the original design. The heathland course is mostly level with just the odd gradient to add some variation
Bramley Golf Course is a par 69 parkland course near Guildford. With a fairway, tee and green irrigation system, the course is kept in great condition all year round. Carefully positioned bunkering, water hazards and well protected greens test every golfer, regardless of ability.
Sonning's original layout was designed by JH Taylor with later input from Harry Colt. The course measures 6,329 yards and has a par of 70 and a SSS of 71. It generally plays longer than its yardage due to the elevation of several greens and fairways and although originally a heath land course, there is now an abundance of mature trees and shrubs that line its fairways.
Windlesham is set amidst the beautiful Surrey countryside and is par 72, 6,650 yard championship parkland golf course with two loops of 9-holes, that will test every golf shot in your bag. Featuring gentle slopes and streams, every aspect of the course is designed to excite the eye and the mind.
The greens and tees are in immaculate condition, and the fairways are shaped and cut to provide a fair test of golf for all levels. It is rated as one of the finest golf courses in the south east.
Windlesham was designed by Tommy Horton, the former Ryder Cup star and leading Seniors PGA Tour player and constructed by Southern Golf, the world renowned contractors of Wisley, The Oxfordshire and other first class courses and venues.
Reciprocal golf will be available with Brickendon Grange with effect from April 1st 2017.
The club was established in the 1960’s and opened the full eighteen hole golf course designed by C.K. Cotton in 1967. The signature hole is without doubt the 17th, named ‘Ace of Herts’, which is undisputedly not only one of the best holes in Hertfordshire but one of the best holes to be played in the South of England. Indeed many a round has been ruined by the challenging final three holes.
It offers a great golfing challenge, without being so tough as to ruin your day, together with the peace and quiet of a truly rural location along with some of the best views around.
Real Golf Club de Pedrena, a long time reciprocal partner with GX, claims Seve Ballesteros as its native son. It is here that Seve learned and perfected his craft and it is here where he maintained his permanent home, overlooking the course. The club is situated close to the town of Santander in northern Spain.
Harry Colt designed; it is hard to imagine a more dramatically beautiful site.
Real Sociedad de Golf de Neguri at La Galea is a par 72 course in 65 hectares of a large estate. It has wide fairways, enormous greens and minimal greenside bunkering.
Some of the holes sit along the cliff tops, two hundred feet above sea level, and there are fine vistas of the Cantabrian Sea to be glimpsed through the trees.
