Sandy Lodge


CSS 73 SSS 72

Located North West of London on the border of Hertfordshire and Middlesex, Sandy Lodge is within easy reach of London and the surrounding countryside. Sandy Lodge became a Regional Qualifying venue for The Open for the first time in 2015.

Founded in 1910 and often described as an inland links, the course was designed by six-time Champion Golfer Harry Vardon who also took part in an exhibition golf match with James Braid (five-time Open Champion) on its Opening Day.

With six par threes and five par fives on the scorecard, there is no shortage of variation at Sandy Lodge. The pick of the half-dozen one-shot holes is the long, downhill 15th called Markes’ Pride which is ringed by a quartet of bunkers and numerous trees. The course takes advantage of the area’s natural terrain while making use of heather, mounding, and strategically placed bunkers, challenging players of all ages and skill levels.

Regional Qualifying 13 spots into Final Qualifying confirmed.
