Covering in excess of 200 acres and designed by David Williams, the golf course meanders through dramatic rolling countryside, populated by thousands of mature trees which further enhance the appeal of the setting. The topography of the course is extremely interesting with two valleys merging at the northern end offering wonderful views over Surrey’s North Downs.
Carefully positioned bunkers, raised tees, tree lined fairways and two teasingly placed lakes mean a good test of a golfers repertoire is required. Full irrigation, including all fairways and USGA specification greens and tees mean the course is in top condition all year round.
Although the contours of the site are dramatic, the clever use of these natural assets ensures that the vast majority of holes are played either level or downhill. There is only one real uphill shot - that being a short pitch to the raised 2nd green.
As befits a Championship length status, the course has a number of difficult par 4s, of which the 16th and bunkerless 6th are two of the most difficult. However, the most challenging hole for the club player is the 3rd which requires a carry of over 150 yards across water from the championship tee. Water also plays a part on the last hole, a challenging par 4 which requires two exceptional shots to achieve a par score.
But don’t believe us, here’s an independent review from The Social Golfer:
Mature open parkland course with undulating fairways (some hilly) and undulating greens, also fairway bunkers and some holes guarded by water.
With some super 'driving' holes. Fairways, bunkers, greens all in good condition. Practise putting green with a chipping green & driving range across the car park about 400 yard away from the club house.
Excellent club house with small pro shop & friendly staff. Sort of course I definitely be a member.
