Over 4 centuries the Royal Blackheath course has evolved and grown from a 5-hole, gravel-pitted heathland to a relocated, remodelled and resplendent 110 acres of landscaped parkland of immense natural beauty. Including, of course, its fair share of heart-stopping hedges, humps and signature bunkers.
Today, the course enjoys all the merits of parkland golf, in the shape of old, seasoned turf which produces excellent fairways and smooth, true greens. It has been shrewdly landscaped and planted with trees. The wide variety and beauty of these, often ancient trees is very much a feature of the course. It’s hard to believe you’re just nine miles from the City of London.
The holes are sound and of a good length, the course having been very much improved since it was remodelled by James Braid, five-time Open Champion.
The most memorable characteristic of the current Blackheath course is the strength of its start and finish. We believe that the first four holes are as challenging a start to a round of golf as can be found anywhere, including the courses on the Open Championship rota.
