Hendon Golf Club Course
The current course at Hendon was designed in 1925 by Harry Colt, the leading golf course architect of his day. He designed other courses such as Wentworth and the New Course at Sunningdale.
Colt believed that a golf course should be "a natural haven for the joys of true golf" and this is certainly exemplified in Hendon where the golfer can enjoy their round in pleasant, peaceful surroundings amongst a host of fine trees: English Oaks, Silver Birches, Willows, Poplars, Cypresses, Prunus and some excellent examples of Hornbeams.
The course is renowned for its small, well guarded greens which are kept in immaculate condition throughout the year. There are some notable holes on the course. The 2nd, a long par 4, requires a high quality shot in order to reach a narrow well guarded green; a par here brings a sense of relief and no little satisfaction. One feature of this hole is a watercourse crossing the fairway about 100 yards from the green with an attractive stone bridge spanning it (modelled on the one crossing the Swilken Burn at St. Andrews).
