The History of Oak Park

Oak Park Golf Club is near Farnham, Surrey in the South-East of England. Although the correct postal address is listed as Surrey, the whole course, including the clubhouse, is situated within the boundaries of Hampshire.

Oak Park Golf Club is operated by Crown Golf, who acquired it as a part of their purchase of American Golf in 2004.

The club consists of an 18-hole Woodland golf course, and a 9-hole Village course.

Village Course 

Although now considered as the 'junior' of the two courses, the Village was the first set of nine holes created at Oak Park. Named for its proximity to the village of Crondall. Two of the holes, the 5th and 7th, incorporate some of the chalk pits that the village was noted for in medieval times.

Woodland Course 

The Woodland, as the name suggests, plays through the woods on the slopes of nearby Beacon Hill, one of the highest points in the eastern part of Hampshire. Originally created as a second nine for the Village course, it was later extended to include an additional nine holes to create the 18-hole course of today. The 'original' nine (now 1 to 4, 14 to 18) are mostly unchanged from their original design, although the first three holes were realigned when the course was extended. The 'new' nine (5 to 13) incorporates the four 'Hill' holes (10 to 13) which climb up and around a ridge of pine trees and offer the golfer both fine views and a challenge to their game.
