Does anybody know if the type of heather is different at Walton Heath compared to the heathland courses not capped by clay?Ciao
The first hole on the Old is indeed an odd one. When the Ryder Cup was played there, the second became the first hole and a composite course was created with several holes from the New.
It was once a short par four with the tee on the other side of the road. They had to nix that tee because of health and safety concerns, so they moved the tee over the road and made it a long three. I think that's why it's such a funky hole. It's "supposed" to take a wedge and it's a hybrid, long iron or fairway wood.
