Changes as Woking hits milestone

WOKING Golf Club is gearing up to  celebrate its 125th anniversary by undertaking what it calls a number of ‘modern initiatives’.

Working Golf Club is gearing up to  celebrate its 125th anniversary by undertaking what it calls a number of ‘modern initiatives’.

The Surrey club has seen its already-excellent greens benefit from the completion of major drainage improvements, overseen by course manager Andy Ewence, who joined the club recently from The Bukinghamshire.

A club spokesperson told English Club Golfer: “This is one example of a renewed focus on making the course exceptional. There has also been continued major works with a focus on bringing the course back to its fast running, heathland roots.”

Off the course, a new swing  studio is nearing completion, whilst the club has also announced a trial break from the ‘solidly two-ball’ format.

Starting in November, threeball and fourball golf will be played at Woking on Tuesdays and Fridays to meet visitor and society groups’ demands.

The spokesperson continued:  “For a grand old club, where the famous clock of the pavilion-style clubhouse still presides over the course, the passing of time is seeing Woking being more open to all visitors, whilst still preserving its respect for traditions and its rich history.”
