Our next event, the Spring Meeting on Tuesday 12th May 2020, will again be held at Hankley Common Golf Club. This beautiful high-quality heathland course near Farnham, Surrey, which originated in 1897, is used as an Open Regional Qualifying Course and was voted number 41 in the Golf Monthly Top 100 courses and 46 in the Golf World Top 100 list.
“Hankley Common has an elegant setting and a fine routing which takes us on an intriguing exploration of the endless heath where slithers of fairway cut through never-ending swathes of heather, each in their own little universe.
It is a relatively easy walk with the only climb of any sorts coming when we play the triad of holes where the sixth and eighth (both par fives) act as two lengths of an isosceles triangle with the superlative short seventh joining the dots.
Indeed one of the beauties of the course is that it plays in little triangles, or mini-loops, throughout the round. The first to fourth bring us back to the clubhouse. 10, 11 & 12 are another triangle as are 13, 14 & 15.”
