A bold, strategic championship golf course set amongst ancient oak trees in rolling English countryside
Chart Hills opened in 1993 and was Faldo Design’s first completed European project.
With such an abundance of classic courses in the UK, this design was a real challenge for us, but I feel that we produced a very strong layout. Studded with ancient oak trees and gently undulating throughout, Chart Hills enjoys a beautiful and very English country setting. There are 18 very distinctive holes which, collectively, demand a great variety of shot-making skills, making this a very strategic test and a real thinking man’s golf course. More than anything, I wanted to design a course that would offer different challenges to different players and I believe we succeeded in that goal. Certainly, I doubt that anyone will ever tire of playing this course.
