Such a classic course that will try to break your spirit on the front 9 with a tremendous challenge of holes that play into the prevailing wind. The summer in the UK has been brutal and left the courses here hard, fast, and dry and Walton Heath is no exception. The positives are that there's a ton of run on the fairways and that the challenges off the fairway are less severe. While the front 9 is one of the more challenging stretches of golf anywhere, the back is less punishing but still has spots you need to avoid. As others have mentioned the road noise is noticeable and can detract from the experience if you let it but why would you? Lovely set of courses, great staff, and an overall wonderful day of golf on a world class course.
