Walton Heath’s Old Course is hosting the Financial Services Corporate Masters on Monday 22nd June 2009, for IFA’s intermediaries and senior executives in the financial industry.
With a history taking in such luminaries as James Braid, Winston Churchill, Edward VIII and Jack Nicklaus, Walton Heath has a story to tell. The two courses intertwine through some of the most beautiful golfing landscapes. The Old Course has played host to many of the golfing elite who have experienced countless thrills and disappointments.
The Ryder Cup was hosted here in 1981 with the US team, starring Jack Nicklaus and Tom Watson, generally looked upon as the best in the Cup’s history. It has something special to offer: an expertly crafted heathland beauty with crisp turf giving it a links feel. The bunkers are large and fringed by heather, the greens big and consistent in pace. As the course is 700 feet above sea level, the wind comes into play in exactly the same way as it would at a seaside course.
The last three holes on the back nine provide what is regarded as one of the toughest finishes in world golf. Despite its beauty, there are long carries over the heather, which is a graveyard for wayward shots. Walton Heaths Old is certainly a rewarding test of your all-round game.
"Walton Heath Golf Club is one of the true classic golf courses in the world today.
My favourite hole on the Old Course is the par 4, 6th." [Ernie Els]
