Wentworth (East) - Golf Course in England

About Wentworth (East)


When entering the wentworth club, everybody runs to play the west, but the east is more fun for the average player. It's even sandier, more personal, and charming. This was the first course designed at wentworth by harry colt, and it opened in 1924, two years before its bigger and brasher younger sibling.

The east is a very short course, measuring 6,200 yards from the back tees, but it's a very fun walk on the springy turf, and the low par of 68 can make handicapping a real challenge. Although there is just one par five, there are five par fours that are over 400 yards long. The east's set of five short holes stands out; they're all fantastic par threes. Only the beautiful west sussex course at pulborough can probably offer a great set of short holes.

The newer edinburgh course currently sits on the eastern side of the wentworth farm, with the east course occupying the central field. As many people will already remember, golfing on the east coast is a very unique and personal experience. The enclosed forest environment throws the sense of direction off, since only one hole is clear at a time and they zigzag all over the place. When we hit the halfway point, where we can take a drink and take a deep breath before taking on the 7th, an enticing yet difficult long par three, it's still a fun surprise.
