Five Genuine Harry Colt Design Courses

Our Best of Colt ‘top 10 selection’ are the courses that best represent Harry Colt’s design principles. They value his design, some after more than 100 years, and are keen on maintaining or sometimes restoring his design. This “Trail” takes you to five genuine Harry Colt design courses. We have selected hotels at Bath, Southampton and Windsor. There is an interesting mix of courses. One links, two heathland and two parkland. Several of these courses would now be termed short. We have found that they are often the ones that have been able to keep close to Colt’s original design. Those selected to hold professional tournaments have more pressure to gain length which can compromise the original strategic design.
