Course Overview

The course on the Common is the second oldest continuing golf course in England and Wales. It was first played on in 1865. So it is not surprising the greens are so good - they have had plenty of time to mature!

The single-figure handicappers from Golf Monthly played the course in our Centenary year (2008), and proclaimed the greens as being as good as any they had played that year - and they had played at some prestigious clubs!
