Sundridge Park Golf Club Map and Location


More information about Sundridge Park Golf Club

Facilities
Sundridge Park Golf Club in Kent and the borders of London is a beautiful 36-hole golf course located just seven miles from the city of London as the crow flies. The name of Sundridge first appears as a locality in an Anglo Saxon Charter dated AD 987 but does not appear as a historic entity until almost a century later - sometimes after the Domesday survey. In 1210 there is a reference to Galfredus De Sundresse, however in 1227 there is mention of Adam Le Blund, whose ancestor had arrived in England with William the Conqueror. He acknowledged the right of Gilbert de Melles to the property at "Sundresse" and he further agreed that he and his heirs should pay Gilbert and his heirs "Five Shillings" (25p) for the use of a large meadow at Sundridge. In 1796 the property was owned by the Scott family, who used the mansion for many years as their home. Sir Edward Scott became very well known as a breeder of Pheasants and he often invited King Edward VII to Sundridge Park for weekend shoots. Sir Edward later sold quite large sections of the estate for development, the major part became known as Sundridge Park Golf Club, the Club developing from just nine holes to eighteen then to twenty-seven and finally to the delightful East and West Courses of today. In the Summer of 1901 about a dozen far seeing Bromley men conceived the idea of a Golf Club for their town, on September 14th, they Issued a printed circular letter headed "Proposed Golf Club" near 'Sundridge Park, Bromley, Kent", giving the name of a Provisional Committee. The first meeting of the Club was held on December 4th at the Bell Hotel, Bromley. On December 7th, Mr Jack Randall was appointed Club Professional prior to opening and Willie Park was engaged and paid a small fee to set-out the new course, and subsequently, the construction proceeded under the expert supervision of James Braid and Jack Randall. Jack Randall added the title of Green Keeper to that of Professional and then together with brother Bob (Caddy Master) commenced a fine working relationship with the club.
Description

The Club boasts two 18 hole golf courses and is well known in the region as a very popular and well-visited club. Each of the courses offers a distinctive challenge to the discerning golfer with impressive panoramic views of some of the capital's best-known landmarks.

The East course is considered fair but challenging.  A short walk down the hill from the Clubhouse takes you to the 1st tee of our British Open pre-qualifying course. With a par of 71, The East was used as a venue for Open qualifying from 1992 to 1997.  The West course, of equal quality, is truly testing and enjoys commanding, panoramic views of London's famous landmarks, encompassing Canary Wharf to the East and the new Wembley Stadium Arch to the West. The West has its own unique character, a truly testing but beautiful par 69. Mainly tree lined the West course leaves an impression and a yearning to return.

Proper Golf Course

Played the East course which was in perfect condition, the greens were very tricky and not easy. Each hole offered something different and were a real challenge - the 18th being a superb finishing hole. Love to play the West course next. If I lived nearer I'd join without hesitation.

great course in a lovely setting

from the moment you first contact them to the time you leave you are made to feel genuinely welcome. The course itself and we played the east was everything you want in a course and each hole had enough to make you think about the shot. The setting is a little oasis of tranquility on the outskirts of london, greenfees are a little bit pricey but if you can get a deal like we did i recommend you jump at it.

East Course : highly recommended : a must play

Sundridge Park is a prominent golf course in Bromley, London; with two 18 holes courses;East and West.
The East Course was played during a Kent Vet's League match;played off the white tees.
This is a difficult but beautiful parkland course; course and greens in excellent condition.
No green fees paid due to reciprocal home and away match arrangements, £15 for an excellent post match two course meal. Breakfast available from 8am. Halfway hut just beyond the 9th green.
Weekday visitor green fees are £60 for the East Course, or £85 for a 36 hole East/West day combination. The County Card rate is £35. I strongly recommend that you play it if you can.

What a beautiful Golf course !!!!

Fantastic course. One of the best I've played...Sheer class from clubhouse to practice facilities to immaculate course conditions. Every hole is testing with much variety but not overly penal.

I played the WEST course with a member for only £25. Not sure what a TSG rate is but you will not be disappointed if you get a chance to play it.

Very undulating landscape with superb fairways, awesome greens and decent sand in the bunkers. The landing areas are very generous which makes the experience fun.

The EAST is definitely on my agenda for a return visit.
:-)

Superb course very close to central London

Sundridge Park has two fantastic 18 hole courses (East & West) just a few miles from central London. The West course has recently had a series of new paths put in which in time should be suitable for buggies. Both courses are maintained to the highest standards. The clubhouse has a magnificent patio with views across to London.

A new member with very high prospects which i know will be met

With 2 courses (East and West) proving very different to each other with one longer and more opener than the other, the golf club offers more variety to the golfer. Visitors are welcome during the week but guests are welcome on weekends.
Having not experienced the golf during the summer I know this will be by far my favourite club so far and with me playing off 4 it will be a true test to improve my golf even more.
