– Harry Colt redesign in 1914
Founded in 1898 and laid out by Tom Dunn, then redesigned in 1914 by the legendary Harry Colt, boasts a truly challenging layout, with a course that is a stunning and deceptively strong par 70, the quality of which continues to attract a host of top national amateur events.
Broadstone is one of the finest examples of an unspoilt heathland golf course in the South of England. Within 250 acres of rolling terrain, the fairways run freely and separately through natural heathland with its swathes of heather, pine, gorse and rhododendrons.
It shares the same sense of scale and openness that characterises many parts of Sunningdale, and the ground’s undulations are similarly massive.
Although the course measures 6,410 yards from the back tees and 6,097 from the yellows, it has held a number of amateur tournaments and is an outstanding heathland course.
