15 reviews of Farleigh Court Golf Club
Played this on the advice on a colleague and was really disappointed.
This is being advertised as being part of the Foxhills Family on its website and pretty clear it the poor relation.
Not a patch on the original Foxhills.
It's in the right price category as being cheap as this really doesn't merit any more than £10 per round.
Clubhouse is pretty, if you're in to that kind of thing but not really a club as such. Better value and courses in area.
I played here as part of a four ball on a Friday afternoon.
I had played here 10 years earlier and had read that it was now being ran by the Foxhills team.
The clubhouse has been substantially upgraded and is very plush. The management were very friendly and were keen to engage with us to let us know what they had been doing and intended to do with the club.
The course is not quite in the same league as the clubhouse, although it is a very decent track offering good value for money.
The course was in fairly good shape and was a lot better than I remebered. It is obvious the Foxhills team have plans to continue improving and as a result I look forward to returning to see there results.
Farleigh ticks the box in all areas. Course was in great condition, staff were friendly and the catering was great.
Definitely visiting again soon in the very near future
I played for £10 courtesy of Tee Times but this seemed almost expensive when I discovered the offer of a month's 5 day membership for £45.
There are 27 holes and I was advised to play the Members Course (6000 yds from the yellows).
The greens are very large and in reasonable condition for the time of year but the aprons need attention as chipping was a lottery. The pin positions created a challenge.
The fairways are rather ill defined and I have some sympathy with the long hitting Australian as the rough is penal. They were in fair condition for a course of this age although those on the first 9 holes were rock hard.
The course would be more challenging if some of the par 5's (none of which are 500 yards even from the whites) were reclassified as par 4's. The difference between the par and SSS indicates the problem. I am aware there are some tiger tees which would support the claim that this is one of the longest courses in Surrey. As the atmosphere is relaxed perhaps one could use some of these tees if of a sufficient standard.
There are some good holes but none that are truly memorable. A mid to high handicapper (such as the lady who submitted the last report) should be able to score well as long as he/she has their putting and chipping under control.
I may well venture back at a discounted price to sample the other 9 holes and the £45/month deal will surely be taken up by those living nearer to the course than I do.
I played Farleigh Court in a club friendly match last weekend and while I agree that the rough can be punishing (I lost one ball), if you manage to keep the ball straight - the fairways are pretty generous - you are OK. The greens had been hollow tined and sanded so they were quite slow but once I had adjusted to the speed, I found them true. There were new flags and cups (see previous comment). Incidentally, my impression may have been coloured by the fact my partner and I won our 4BBB match (and our club beat Farleigh 1½ to 2½) but the best bit was I scored a gross 85 (nett 65). It just shows, gentlemen, that if you hit straight and don't try and smash the ball out of sight, there's a score to be made there!
I played at Farleigh Court recently left extremely frustrated. I play off 6 and being a very long hitter decided to play off the back tees. I was having an ok day and by that I mean I was hitting the ball well but not dead centre. The problem is that this course punishes a moderately wayward shot way too severely. I have no problem with being penalised by being in the rough but should be able to find a ball which wonders 5 yards from the fairway and not blow the hole. Would only return to the course when they trim the 2nd cut to levels where one can find the ball or on a pro tour where someone in the gallery will spot the ball for me! Greenkeepers also need to understand that having to look for balls slows down play and irritates all concerned!
I have played this course over a number of years and it's not been maintained to the high standards of 5 years ago.
The course markers and flags are scruffy and the fairways and greens can only be described as average.
Oxford Hotels is promising to spend money on the club house and changing rooms that again appear well worn.
I have played some very nice courses however and know that this course will not look it's best until May.
Give it a go then!
Local person - played first time yesterday.11-11-06
no maps of course available.
most tees not marked or numbered.
Wont be playing there again.
Other courses is close proximity better organised.
Farleigh is playable pretty well throughout the year, without resorting to temporary greens. The course offers a fair challenge for most mid to high handicappers and has a decent variety of holes. The first and second are relatively easy, providing you, hopefully, with a positive start. The 13th is no more than a 'pitch and putt' hole, but the 16th is a lovely downhill par 3. 17 and 18 offer a tough finish.
I notice that buggies weren't available according to a comment in '03, but they are now. My only problem with the course is the rough, which is far too penal. Make sure you bring a lot of balls with you!
Didn't realise until I saw some local advertising that you could get a green fee at this course - am I glad I discovered the ad! Farleigh Court has a great set up, with an interesting mix of 27 holes, course in great condition with superb greens. I understand that Swallow have put a great deal of cash into improving the course and have all intentions of continuing to invest in this delightful club - a great day out with green fees also really reasonable. The Clubhouse is relaxed and very friendly, the staff made you feel really welcome. Will defnitely be back.
We selected this course for our Annual Family Golf Day as one of the family is a member. Played the Memebers course in the afternoon after trying the 9-Hole in the morning. Temperature made the climbs quite interesting...shame there aren't buggies here! Don't be fooled by playing anything other than short and straight at the first! Cost me a chance of winning! 4th hole can be tamed, but only if you're dead straight. Liked the fact that playing long can put you in more trouble than playing wisely. Look forward to returning here in 5 years time......stay out of the rough!
We played the members course Farleigh Court in a wettish day in the early summer. The course was quiet for a Sunday afternoon. The main challenge at Farleigh Court is the heavy rough - very easy to lose balls even when you only just miss the fairway. Coupled with this, on a number of the holes your ball disappears over the top of a hill, which makes it pretty difficult if you've not played the course before as you don't know when you need to hit a provisional. Better to be safe than sorry! The greens were very fast when we played, and the course is obviously well maintained. Unfortunately the clubhouse had been configured to watch the World Cup when we went, and it wasn't particularly comfortable if you just wanted a quiet drink after the round. Two fore one vouchers make the course good value, otherwise...
I played this course recently and I have to say it was one of the best courses I've played. I played the members course on a Sunday with 2-Fore-1 vouchers. The greens are fantastic and the holes themselves are challenging and entertaining.
The 4th seemed easy enough until I found every hazard along the narrow fairway.
The People were friendly and the club house was fantastic. I certainly will be returning and I will recommend it to anybody looking to play a round of golf visiting the area.
The course was excellent. The Club House was very nice. The food I had there was excellent. (I asked who the chef was on that day and was told it was Denise. Is she the Head Chef? if not, cooking food like that and the presentation of it
was excellent, she should be).
I had a great day and I would recommend this Club
to all my friends. I will be booking for a family meal one Sunday (Hope Denise will be cooking it).
Had my wedding reception here and played the nine hole course the morning of my wedding.
The course is still quite new and most of the difficulty comes from the v. heavy rough and mid/narrow fairways.
The two valleys that the course spans make for some very interesting golf. One par 3 is 140 yds long with the green 80 yds below the tee. Don't miss read it and take a driver as one of my guests did.
Overall the course is excellent and very well kept. This is another Japanese owned club and it shows. If you are in the area and need somewhere to play don't hesitate to give this place a call.
