A serious contender for the most exclusive course in the UK is Swinley Forest, located in the heart of SurreyBerkshire Heathland, along with the famous Wentworth and Sunningdale golf courses. Not only is it probably one of the hardest courses in the UK to get on, it is also one of the purest examples of classic inland golf in all of Europe. The club is unashamedly exclusive, has always held a liberal attitude towards female members and has been run in the manner of a benevolent dictatorship. The fact that there are no compulsory handicaps, members are able to choose what they play off, this says a lot about the laid back attitude of the members in general. Perhaps controversial in terms of club management Swinley Forest has certainly made a name for itself in its unorthodox approach to the game. More >
