"In our opinion, comfortably the best of the three ‘Ws’. The original heathland design is still one of the best, presenting a strong strategic test. Immense green complexes, undulating site, purple heather, white sand bunkers and fabulous strategy make this one of our favourite heathlands. The rise and rise of Woking continues and the upward journey could feasibly not be over either. A seminal heathland we really love."
– Michael Clayton – architect
