Swinley Forest is a private members’ club located between Sunningdale and Ascot that has charmed, inspired and challenged golfers for over 100 years. Designed by Harry Colt, its layout carves its way through spectacular heathland vistas framed by heather, pine woods, azaleas and rhododendrons. With its combination of 2 par 5s, 11 par 4s and 5 par 3s, Swinley plays deceptively long and its undulating greens deliver an extra test of skill to all comers. Off the back tees, Swinley measures 6431 yards with a par of 69.


On week days throughout the year, Swinley welcomes a limited number of golfing groups and visitors strictly by prior arrangement.


Breakfast is offered in the bar and a full carvery in our upstairs dining room, overlooking the course.

Dress Code

On the course, traditional golfing attire is required; all players are welcome to wear tailored shorts. Collarless shirts, jeans or trainers are not permitted. In the clubhouse, visitors are encouraged to dress smartly (jackets required for gentlemen in the upstairs dining room).

Use of Mobile Phones

Everyone at Swinley is asked to respect our code on the use of mobile phones. They should not be used inside the clubhouse, nor on the course or the patio facing the 18th green. Please make your calls from the car park or the visitors changing room. It is fine to use such devices passively – i.e. for sharing photos, calendars or emails.

Pace of Play

All players to keep up a good pace of play. If you find yourself holding up players and there is a gap in front of you, please let the faster golfers through at the first opportunity.
