Wentworth West Course

Virginia Water



Wentworth’s West Course is one of the most historic venues in world golf. It was successfully renovated and modernised by Ernie Els, who won a record seven World Matchplay titles on this course. Every aspect of the golf course – the whole strategy, core shot values, the construction and the look of the greens’ complexes, putting surfaces and bunkering – was enhanced to make it a world class championship layout and members’ golf course par excellence. 

At the conclusion of the major works, Ernie and the team were absolutely thrilled with the results. He also expressed thanks to Jeremy Slessor and his team at European Golf Design, and the advisory panel at the DP World Tour, for their input on the final phases. There was high praise, too, for Kenny Mackay, Director of Golf Courses & Grounds at Wentworth Club, and an acknowledgement of the invaluable role played by the Club’s owners, Reignwood Group.
