This course will split opinion. There are no bunkers until you get to the 18th, however the courses defense is more akin to a Links course as a windy day can make this a tough course. It is not long but there is enough to keep you interested, some of the holes have very narrow fairways and as it is on Epsom Downs very hilly which means you get a good work out which starts to take its toll over the last few holes.
I would play this again as it is a real test. The greens are quick and well maintained and the general upkeep and clubhouse is great. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
Played the course yesterday, weather conditions were terrible. Although the greens were very difficult I thought that on some of the holes you were playing in the middle of a large roundabout with traffic passing you on all sides. The club house staff was friendly and the food was good but for £26 with 4 temporary greens, I thought it was a bit steep.
Played this course a few times now a very good course very tight in places but a couple of short par fours means you can score well if you need to get your card back on track
Great staf and very helpful bar at pros
Good Variety of meals
one of the better courses in the london area
Played here in the mixed open over the weekend of the 29th July 2007. The course was in good condition with fantastic views across London, you could even see the Wembley arch!. Although the course is very short by modern standards the only defence is the greens, they are incredibly difficult. 3 foot puts downhill would almost certainly end up off the green, which in my estimation is not real golf. Obviously the trick is to be the correct side of the flag, not always that easy. I believe it would take many years of playing here to master the course, however will return to try and improve on my previous effort.
Epsom club is a very testing course, especially the greens! Some of the most difficult greens i have ever played on. Its a nice length course with shorter easier holes after the great long ones to give you a break. I dont think the holes affect the enjoyment whatsoever.
Overall a very nice course and beautiful club
Unusual course this. Plays tight in places and has greens that remind me of watching the Masters in Augusta, but they are very good. Good variety of holes and is really a test of the short game, but the driver should not come out too often.
A very good test of golf and though a members club they made us very welcome. Great views over London.
This golf course has some of the best undulating greens I've ever played on. You may hit them in regulation but God help you if your putting is not spot on. It's a real gem of a course and we can't wait to get back on it.
A course with superb greens, but on public land near Epsom race course. Unfortunately this means that you do get members of the public hacking around it. The club is also very snobby of any green fee users and charges for a day ticket (I PRESUME TO RECOUP THE 2-4-1 offer). Worth playing once just to experience the greens.
A very tricky course that requires a great deal of local knowledge. When I played it the greens were in very good condition and a credit to the greenkeeper. I did not like the course much, too many cars driving all over the place, I like courses that are away from the suburban environment. The clubhouse is a converted detached house with the 18th green in the back garden! The only bunker on the course is also in the back garden. This course is overpriced and not to be recommended to any serious golfer, hackers will do well! I didn't like the stuffy atmosphere at this club.
A course similar to Epsom Downs is Reigate where I found the members to be a good crowd and full of fun (similar greens, location, tightness and clubhouse but much better)
PS I'm not a member at either course and wouldn't recommend either to any serious golfer but if you want an enjoyable day out Reigate is the better bet.
Very pleasant staff and welcoming atmosphere. The course is tight and some tee positions demand very accurate drives. An interesting and well kept course. Narrow and winding, lightening greens -almost links like in the wind. Agree with McRichter about the roads but this isn't a substantial detraction from an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable, attractive, varied and challenging Golf Course. Wonderful bacon sandwiches.
Played in March '99. Narrow course. Tees are shared (17th and 18th); fairways are shared (2nd & 16th) and the course is shared with a road network that players have to cross too many times. Plus, clubhouse won't take credit cards for green fees :(\r\n
