What we say
New?! It is 101 years old; and now it is longer and tougher, it is a real test. Has some challenging approaches requiring total accuracy. More respected than loved.
As reviewed by BBC Match of the Day's Gary Lineker: It's tough - very tough. Whereas the Old Course at Sunningdale gives you a bit of a chance if you're wayward off the tee, the New doesn't give you an inch with heather lining the sides of almost every hole. The 4th must be the hardest stroke index 10 in the world: it's 475 yards, all uphill with heather tight in to the edge of the fairway and a couple of bunkers guarding the green with a steep slope down to the right.
The Old Course, designed by Willie Park, is the more famous of the two Sunningdale golf courses, but only acquired the title of Old when the New Course, designed by Harry Colt, was opened in 1923. The New is not so heavily bunkered or tree-lined as the Old, but with more heather, longer carries, and tighter fairways gives exhilarating views across the wild landscape of Chobham Common.
