On Thursday 13th October our President, Daniel Church, invites you to join him at Walton Heath Golf Club for an afternoon of golf on the world-class championship Old Course. There are two very impressive SLS silver golf trophies to be won, so there will be an element of competitiveness, but with lots of fun along the way on this beautiful heathland course. The Prize-giving will be held at this year’s Charity Gala Dinner also being held in the wonderful surroundings of the Clubhouse at Walton Heath later that evening.
Described by Sir Nick Faldo as ‘the finest and most authentic example of a heathland layout’, the Old Course at Walton Heath is consistently rated as one of the top 100 golf courses in the world. Since it opened in 1903 the Club has welcomed famous names from kings and politicians to celebrity golfers. Edward, Prince of Wales was the Club's first captain in 1935.
Seasoned Golfers will have a chance to play the 18 hole par 72 (6361 yard) course which has hosted many professional and amateur championship events including The 1981 Ryder Cup, 5 European Opens, The Senior Open , and for the last 10 years the European qualifying venue for the US Open.

Special Green Fees negotiated for our Golfers will be just £75pp – half the usual green fee. This includes everything starting with a quick pre-game lunch of bacon rolls.
Beginner Golfers are welcome too, so if all of this sounds a bit too scary, we have arranged a special taster session. A totally relaxed, non-competitive opportunity to spend an hour and a half with one of Walton Heath’s top Golf Pros, learning the basics. Who knows you might get bitten by the golfing bug! The fee for beginners will be £15pp (including lunch too).
