About the Club

Hailed as one of the finest recently-built golf courses in England, Chart Hills is the British architectural debut of six times Major winner, Nick Faldo. Set on 200 acres of gently undulating hills, Chart Hills was officially opened for play in August 1993 and despite its relative youth in golfing terms; the course has already gained many accolades.

Chart Hills has been voted "Best new course in England" by Golf World, "Best inland course in the United Kingdom" by Following the Fairways, is used as a European Tour qualifying school venue and played host to the 1995 Ford Ladies Classic.

Having left the 18th green a Chart Hills, your abiding memories are likely to include bunkers, water and greens. Offering over 130 bunkers, clever and abundant use of water hazards, and greens so fast that in the summer months, it is akin to putting on glass, Faldo has succeeded in creating a real parkland masterpiece.

While the course on the whole, will certainly create a positive lasting impression, two of the signature features of the design include the long "Anaconda Bunker" on the 5th hole and the illusive island green on the short 7th hole.

From the back tees, Chart Hills measures a substantial 7,119 yards and although the visitor is likely to play the course at a yardage of just 6,450, be assured that it still provides a stiff test. The tone is set from the first tee, where you are faced with a huge par five of almost 600 yards in length from the championship stakes. This is an excellent driving hole, with a long-running creek and bunkers, which command your full attention from the tee.

Other outward gems include the beautiful 5th, where the goal must be to stay out of what must be the longest bunker in the world; the often frustrating short 6th, which though reachable from the tee, is fraught with danger; and the par four 8th, which is rated as the second most difficult on the course.

Don't expect any letup over the back nine. The 12th is an excellent driving hole and requires a precision approach to an elevated green, protected by water to the front and bunkers to the left and right. But it's the par four, 13th hole that demands most concentration.

Rated as the most difficult hole at Chart Hills, your tee shot must be precise to avoid the creek, which runs along the left and with the hole doglegging left, any shot seeking safety to the right will leave a long iron to an elevated green. The par three, 17th, is a beautiful hole, where correct club selection is vital. A do-or-die hole, the result is either safety on the island green or landing in a watery grave.

Courses & Scorecards

Chart Hills Golf Course

Chart Hills, which forms the northern boundary of the Weald, derives its name from a series of Royal Charters, the first being issued in 762A.D. On what Faldo called "the perfect piece of land", 200 acres of gently undulating hills with 200 year old oaks, now lies Chart Hills Golf Club. The Course Four years after the initial concept, Chart Hills was officially opened in August 1993, the first ball being struck by Nick Faldo himself. With 138 bunkers, 5 different teeing positions and greens so fast that they have been likened to putting on glass, Faldo has created 18 holes each with its own personal characteristics and challenges. Faldo has truly left his mark on the course with some memorable 'signature' features, such as the 200-yard long snake like Anaconda Bunker on the 5th and the island green at the short 17th. Nick Faldo said "Chart Hills has surpassed even my expectations and I doubt that anyone would ever tire of playing this course"
