Croham Hurst Golf Club is a friendly and welcoming club that was founded in 1911. The 18-hole, par 71, parkland course was designed by Fred Hawtree and five times Open Champion, James Braid. Whether on the course or in the clubhouse, there is a sense of history, and a wonderfully warm sensation of being completely at home. It is a very special corner of Surrey, close to London and Croydon, boasting the outstanding natural beauty that once adorned most of the county.
A parkland golf course with densely wooded areas, Croham Hurst is located in gently rolling countryside and, being 500ft above sea level, provides extensive views across South London. You’re only two miles from the edge of London, yet you feel a world away in rolling countryside.
The golf course was built on chalk so it drains well. There are several star hole candidates. It’s hard to pick between the tough par-four 15th and the great par-three that follows. At around 6,300 yards from the back tees, it can feel tricky and challenging at times.
