Prior to 1901, interesting golf was exclusively found at links land—the sandy soil between the sea and the farmland that was not suitable for crops, but Sunningdale Old, set west of London in the English sand-belt, changed the perception of golf. While no Men’s or Women’s majors have been played here, Bobby Jones did shoot a “perfect 66” here in 1926’s Open Qualifying, which acclaimed Bernard Darwin wrote was “incredibly and in decent.” To this day, The Old continues to be among the best in the world, and arguably a part of the world’s best 36 hole facility.
