Located in Greenwich, London, Shooters Hill Golf Club is a challenging course, with its origins in the 1930s. Visitors are often surprised to find such a picturesque course only eight miles from London Bridge!
Golf has been played at the site since 1903, when it was opened as a three-hole course, although it was 1907 before a full 18-hole course was constructed by Willie Park. Shooters Hill was so named because hundreds of years before golf was played there, archers practiced on the site.
In the 1930s, the original course was remodelled by Messrs Harris and Colt. It now remains an attractive parkland course, with panoramic views across the Kent countryside. It is known for its challenging holes, including its signature hole, the 161-yard 10th – one of three par 3s in a section of the course known as “Amen Corner”, which is known for being particularly demanding.
The 11th hole is a difficult uphill par three, with bunkers awaiting anyone who hits the ball too short.
Crown Sports Lockers was commissioned to complete a refurbishment of the locker room at Shooters Hill, comprising traditional style golf lockers, with oak-framed doors and carpet-topped seating in front.
