Bernard Hunt Course

The Bernard Hunt Course is named after Bernard Hunt, MBE, who was former head professional in the 80’s & 90’s. He was the first head professional at Foxhills and served for 25 years. Bernard won 30 times on the European PGA Tour, played in the Ryder Cup 10 times, twice as Captain, and won the Tour's Order of Merit in 1961 and 1963.

Not surprisingly, the course that's named after him offers more than a few serious challenges for club golfers. The 10th hole, for instance, is a 445-yard par-4 that plays downhill initially and then sweeps uphill to a green protected by two bunkers in front of the putting surface. You have to keep your tee shot to the left of the fairway to have the best angle into a green which slopes wickedly from back right to front left. It is undoubtedly the most difficult hole on the inward nine and one where a par feels like a birdie.

Another real test can be found on the finishing hole, a dogleg of 446-yards. Somewhat unfairly, the members call it Cardiac Hill - but it's a truly great finishing hole, widely considered one of the most difficult in the country as the tee shot must carry more than 200 yards to reach the narrow fairway.

Unless you hit a monster tee shot, your approach shot will be partially blind up the hill from where, in the distance, you can see the spacious double green that's shared with the finishing hole of the Longcross Course.

Longcross Course

The Longcross is widely considered the very best example of a typical tree-lined Surrey course. It winds through Scots pine, beech and silver birch trees and is very reminiscent of many of the great Surrey heathland courses.

The 14th at Longcross was recently voted one of the greatest holes ever played by BBC Radio 5 Live listeners. Call 01932 70 44 74 and book your tee time to find out why.

The 408-yard par-four first hole sets the tone for the round. The drive has to be fired down a funnel between the trees and the second shot must negotiate two bunkers that protect the front of the green. It can cause all sorts of trouble for the wild hitter. The uphill, 430-yard par 4 ninth is arguably the most difficult hole, requiring a tee shot of more than 200 yards to clear a bunker on the left and set up an opportunity to reach the green in two.

The Longcross last hole (see photo above) is also an uphiller, this time of 531 yards, with a large tree on the left narrowing the fairway for the second shot. Again, the approach shot is partially blind to the large, double green which makes for a fantastic climax to the round.
