Walton Heath Artisans
Founded in 1906, Walton Heath Artisans are a local village golf club based at prestigious Walton Heath, near Walton-on-the-Hill in Surrey, England.
Walton Heath Artisans are one of the oldest Artisan Golf clubs in the UK and are privileged to be able to play on both "The Old" and "The New" courses, two championship golf courses and venue for the 1981 Ryder cup and annual US Open Qualifier.
Walton Heath Golf Club has the unique distinction of being the only English Golf Club to have had a reigning Monarch as Captain, when Edward (then Prince of Wales), ascended to the throne during his Captaincy in 1935/6.
The Old Course
Opened in 1904, The Old course has hosted nearly 90 major amateur and professional championships including the 1981 Ryder Cup, 5 European Opens, The Senior Open Championship, South of England Open Amateur Championship and is a U.S. Open Qualifying venue. One of the finest examples of heathland golf, which so closely resembles the traditional seaside links and is ranked as one of the top 100 courses in the world.
The New Course
Opened in 1907 as a nine-hole layout which was extended to 18-holes in 1913. It provides a stiff challenge particularly on the back nine and is ranked within the UK top 100 courses in its own right.
