About Harry Colt & His Courses

Henry Shapland “Harry” Colt (4 August 1869 – 21 November 1951) was a golf course architect born in Highgate, England.  He participated in the design of over 300 golf courses (115 on his own) in North America, South America, Europe, Australia, Asia, and Africa. Colt’s courses of note in the UK include Sunningdale, Rye, Blackmoor, Brokenhurst Manor, Camberley Heath, Stoke Park Club, Goring & Streatley Golf Club and the East & West Courses at Wentworth Club. He performed extensive redesigns of Sunningdale (Old course) and of Muirfield and the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Hoylake, two of the courses on the rota for the Open Championship. 

Colt and his colleagues had only a few simple rules. Firstly, that early holes should not be demanding. Secondly, that using every club in the bag throughout a round is ideal, and that thirdly, the routing of the course should be determined by the land. The number of pars determined for a course fell apon the layout of the land and not any solid rule.

Colt’s design principles were based on the natural aesthetics of the land. Any alterations had to blend in with the environment and not impose on it. Anything added to the natural landscape would grow to be a part of it. Colt would draw on the natural landscapes of the links and apply them to his inland courses so that they too would become a living and lasting record of his work.

Courses that favour the deep ‘pot’ bunker are most likely to be designed by Colt. He was keen on the small but deep hazards as getting out of them required both technique and plenty of skill. Where possible, his courses followed the flow of the land, in much the same way as links courses. However, many of Colts inland layouts included the dogleg. That said, although there was usually trouble in front of most tees. Colt’s punishments were delivered to poor hitters – those that would top or miss hit, or strike a crooked shot. Layouts would also test the better player that would try to play distance in their aim to gain a shot, only to fall short and bunker giving a shot away to the lesser man.

A very enjoyable experience

A very enjoyable experience. Chatted with the Pro’ before and after. He was very informative, helpful and appreciative of the feedback at the time. The course was very well turned out particularly the greens even at this time of year. Thank-you.

Dan Mclean

In great condition

In great condition for this time of year despite the changes which were being made the course played well.  Perhaps the stroke indexes should be altered to accommodate the change to the front 9.

Excellent Day Out

Excellent day out and my guests were very happy too.
I am giving the course a 5 but there were a number of temporary greens and the greens were sanded, however I acknowledge that this is required for the upkeep of the quality of  the course.

An excellent day out

An excellent day out, the course was in excellent condition considering the Hot, Dry weather we have been having.

Met a few of the members who were playing behind us and they were very polite and took the time to talk to us and more importantly gave us some advice on the holes coming up as it was our first time here.

The club house staff were attentive and welcoming.

An excellent day  out and will be returning soon I hope.

The Greens are the best i've played on

Last played this course about ten years ago.I still think it is one of the best courses in the area,and the views are spectacular,when you have survived the first four holes.

The greens are the best I’ve played on,I don’t know how they are this good given the weather conditions.

T Campbell

Superlative views

What is a fantastic round of golf with superlative views and a well kept course can be spoilt my incredibly slow players who take ages and then rearrange their clubs before moving on.  Otherwise, the staff are really helpful and the whole experience if fun.

Course was in great condition!

I visited with my wife and son as 1895 reciprocal visitors.  We received a warm welcome from both the Professional and Keith. The course was in great condition especially following the recent heavy rain after the long dry spell and the greens were excellent.

Many thanks for an enjoyable day.

M Harris

The course in wonderful condition

It has been a difficult summer for golf courses due to very hot weather and lack of rain. The course at Goring and Streatley is in wonderful condition and there are many little touches around the course showing attention to detail by greenkeepers. Greens, tee boxes and fairways are all in top condition.

We were warmly welcomed in pro shop on arrival and similarly had a great experience afterwards in the bar.

Overall a great day out.

Golf course beautifully manicured

“Lovely food golf course beautifully manicured staff very friendly loved it”

V Holdaway

The course was in excellent condition

We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit at G&S GC. Staff and members very friendly and the course was in excellent condition. Our only suggestion for improving the course would be to cut some steps into the side of the steep grass banks to exit some of the greens. The bank on the 3rd green is particularly steep. We live in Sussex but will certainly play here again when we next visit our friends who live in the area.

S Mitchell

Superb course

Superb course in excellent condition, would definitely recommend a visit to play one of the best courses in the area.

P Johnson

What a superb view!

It was a great afternoon of golf and what a superb view! The only small downer was that a trolley was not available for the two of us (one of whom was 70). That said the nugget was only marginally more successful and was a very welcome help up those hills! Will be back. Thanks
