Coombe Wood Golf Club is a mature parkland course founded in 1904. Originally a 9-hole layout, the course was extended to 18 holes in 1922.
In this modern age of 7000-yard+ golf courses where players are asked to continually drive the ball more than 280 yards, Coombe Wood puts the emphasis on skilled shot making and strategic course management instead. Drive the ball well at Coombe Wood and you can be rewarded, if you don’t however, your task is a tough one.
Small, well-guarded greens require good execution of iron shots to find your target. Skilled players will be asked to flight and shape their second shots if they expect to score well. The greens at Coombe Wood are manicured and presented beautifully throughout the year and with subtle, gentle slopes they provide a fair test of nerve and skill.
If you are looking for a good test of golf in beautiful surroundings just 9 miles from the centre of London, Coombe Wood is the place to play.
