Shooters Hill Golf Club is situated in South East London close to Blackheath, not much more than a mile or two from Canary Wharf, Greenwich, and the now famous O2 Arena. Established in 1903, the course offers a true test of golf with its rolling fairways and excellent greens for golfers of all abilities.
In 1907 a full 18 hole course Par 69 was laid out by Willie Park and completely remodelled in the 1930’s by Messrs Harris and Colt and to this day presents a first Class test of golfing ability. Shooters Hill GC is an attractive parkland course situated close to Blackheath, with superb views across the North Kent countryside.
The course is a challenging but fair test of golf, good shot selection is critical for a good score. The course has a number of challenging holes. The signature hole is the picturesque tenth which is included its own “Amen Corner” consisting of three par 3’s each different to the others and each very demanding. Completing these in par is essential to scoring a good round.
The first hole of the “amen corner” is the hole 9th Par 3 (245 yards from the white). You will probably need a big club to reach this long par three, aim to the right where a favourable bounce might leave you on the green. If short, play a low running chip to a sloping green.
Hole 10th is the signature hole and the 2nd of the “Amen Corner”.
Hole 11th, a 159 yards Par 3. A difficult uphill par three where club selection is again vital. Bunkers await anything short so take an extra club as there is a bank at the back of the green to assist anything long.
Note that during the weekend visitors must play with a member.
