Clubhouse

The clubhouse offers a choice of rooms in which to relax or eat and drink, formally or informally.

The Renshaw Room provides a comfortable environment for snacks and drinks, whilst the larger Braid Room, is also equipped with a bar and can accommodate greater numbers.

Sitting there under the gaze of the legendary James Braid, one can reflect on where the true golfing history of Walton Heath began. James Braid was the original professional at the club and in his forty six years tenure went on to be the first man to win five Opens and four Match-play Championships.

There can be little doubt that he was the greatest golfer of his time, one of the all time greats. The Braid Room displays some of the club's trophies and memorabilia, a recent addition is a Pinehurst flag signed by Michael Campbell who won the 2005 U.S. Open, having qualified at Walton Heath.

There are two dining rooms: The Fowler Room, named after the famous course designer, which can be used for private groups or parties and the Holderness Dining Room, which accommodates up to 120 people.

In his 55 years as a member of Walton Heath, Sir Ernest Holderness was one of the greatest amateur golfers ever, winning two Amateur Championships, playing in three Walker Cup teams and becoming President of The English Golf Union amongst many other achievements.

His 38 medals are on display in this room and represent a fraction of the trophies and memorabilia that adorn the clubhouse. Even the most casual golfer will find these treasures of interest, whilst to the serious student they are an abundance of riches!

The clubhouse terrace is a relaxing place to enjoy a drink and it overlooks a large putting green. A secluded and elegant setting to discuss the game.
