The course layouts at Sunningdale have stayed remarkably stable over the past 45 years although major improvements have been made in the areas of irrigation, bunkers and a new Clubhouse. The impact of the changes once the holes are abandoned
south of Sunningdale Road and the new ones are constructed to the
northeast, will be interesting to watch.
In the past I have heard criticism of the design of the first two holes of the Thompson course at Sunningdale as being too bland. I am not sure that I agree with this because I still think that the best start to a golf course is a medium length par four with a generous fairway. The Thompson course certainly has that and in fact it has two such holes to get you warmed up and into the game. That is all about to change. The planned new Thompson-Carrick course will start on current #4 hole instead and the back tee will be located on a cliff far above the fairway. This spectacular tee shot will create excitement right from the get-go. The rest of the routing of the holes is shown here. The six new holes are located on beautiful property and I can’t wait for them to be completed and in play.
This diagram from 1934 shows the three holes that were constructed on the same site as the six new holes although the six new holes extend much further east toward Richmond Street. The 1934 holes crossed the Medway Creek in several places requiring the construction of bridges. The new design uses the creek for a hazard but the holes do not cross it. Good decision.
The members at Sunningdale won’t have to wait long to see the six new holes along the Medway Creek. Current #4 is the first hole and current #5 is the second. The six new holes are #3 to #8. Should be exciting for everyone involved.
