Chiddingfold Golf Club

Surrey, UK

This 18-hole course was designed and built by Jonathan Gaunt in 1992/3 on a compact site in undulating Surrey/Sussex “Weald” land on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The site presented numerous difficult drainage problems – running sand, heavy clay and limited topsoil, but the result is a stunning, strategically-designed course which has been referred to as a “masterpiece of compact design”. Much of the course construction work was done by M J Abbott and it opened for play in 1994 – since then it has proven to be very popular for golfers of all levels and abilities.
