Courses in Pictures: Sunningdale Old and New

I’m going to review my whole trip next week once the jet lang is gone. In the meantime, here’s some shots from my final day of golf in England, at Sunningdale Old and New. Just a couple hundred yards from the train stop, I’ll say both these courses are outstanding and there is little that separates them. The Old (a Willie Park Jr. design)  features less heather and is a bit wider, while the New (Harry Colt) is narrower with more angled tee shots and more heather.

Old 10th: One of the most dramatic shots at Sunningdale Old, the 10th is breathtaking and difficult.

New Course: The 10th used to feature wild bunkers, many of which have been cleaned up by Martin Hawtree.
