Wentworth - East Course
When Harry Colt was engaged in the early part of the 20th century to create the East Course, his intent was quite simply was to create a golf course that would stand the test of time.This intimate layout, with its undulating and springy fairways that zigzag in amongst the woodland setting, calls for accurate driving and precision shot-making into the well-bunkered greens, a classic Colt trademark. Position, not power, is the name of the game here. One of the course’s great strengths is the quality of its five par-3s. They range in length from the inviting 159-yard 12th to the challenging 226-yard 7th, a serious attention grabber. The typical club golfer will almost certainly see more birdie putts here than on the West. But make no mistake, the East Course has teeth.
