10 reviews of Malden Golf Club
I played here in a fairly large society group on a sweltering Wednesday in September.
The course was in great condition with the greens very true although not too fast.
The course is nice and flat and therefore a good walking course, there were no real stand out holes either exceptionally good or bad.
We found everyone we encountered very friendly indeed, staff members etc.
The food was excelent which was served in a very impressive dining room. I would not hesitate to return.
We played the course as visitors on a weekday. Unfortunately it has rained hard all day so it was difficult to judge the condition of the course (puddles everywhere, each hole was full to the brim of water, bunkers were unplayable). As for the layout, there were some challenginh holes with variety in the design. Due to the weather conditions, some of the par 4s played very long and the treelined fairways punished wayward shots - buy a course planner if you have not played before. The professional was very welcoming, the members on the course were very slow and we waited on the 10th tee while group in front were still drinking tea at the halfway house - they gave us an evil look and said we 'might as well play through'.
I'd like to play again in decent conditions, it seemed to be a nice course without being spectacular.
we found a fantastic atmosphere in this very friendly club
course was in excellent condition and greens superb
bar staff very helpful and food was great value
we will definitely bring our society back here
It's been 8 years since I posted my not too flattering report and I'm pleased to see that there are positive reports from other visiting golfers since then. I will now pay a return visit to New Malden to experience the warmer welcome for myself(maybe in cognito,Ha Ha)I will not be able to do this until next year due to injury, but I will post my findings after.
Just to say that I fundamentally disagree with the negative report from John Felipe. Having visited and played at the club today I can only say that it would have been hard to have had a warmer reception from the Pro through to some members before we teed off and then the bar staff in the evening. The course was in good condition and it was an interesting an enjoyable round of golf, involving a bit of thinking to negotiate the various hazards including water on several holes. Thank you for a good day and I will be visiting again.
Not a bad course at all. Not the most challenging but good value and a nice clubhouse. Members were friendly. No real "wow" holes but a perfectly pleasant day
Just to say that we had a society day at New Malden and everyone was friendly (including members) and the staff were very helpful. Sad to hear about the bad experience - some members can be a pain in the butt but we were very happy with New Malden. Liked the course too although personally I'd have all the trees chopped down and the bunkers filled in!
Three of my Dutch guests and myself had a very enjoyable day on the Malden Golf Club in late August 2003. We received a warm and pleasant welcome from the people in the pro shop. The basic need-to-knows were explained, varying from locker room codes, dressing code in the club house and some specifics on the course. The course itself was very good: nice steady not too fast greens, fairways and rough well kept, but a bit dry (remember we had a little heat wave at the time!) and in general a fair course. Also the service we received after the round of golf on the terrace was very friendly and pleasant. In our opinion this is NOT a golf club with an old fashioned mentality, in contrary to what Mr Felipe states in his report submitted on this website. Play at Malden to experience it yourself. We had a very pleasant day at Malden GC.
My name is Robert Hunter, I am the professional at Malden Golf Club, I remember the day so described by Mr Filipe on the web site, I will not go into the reasons why Mr Fillipe did not apparently enjoy his day.
Malden golf club has a well deserved reputation for its warm and friendly welcome, unfortunatly this web site gives the opposite impression. One written complaint carries more weight than a thousand verbal plaudits, and whilst we are sorry that Mr Fillipe and his friends will never visit us again, we do beleive that his comments should either be removed after so many months or at the least this answer should be available.
MALDEN IS NOT A LONG OR HARD COURSE BUT HAS TO BE TREATED WITH A BIT OF RESPECT TREE LINED FAIRWAYS DEEPISH ROUGH WELL PLACED BUNKERS IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH THE BEVERLEY BROOK WANDERS AROUND THE COURSE WAITING TO CATCH ANOTHER UNSUSPECTING GOLF BALL /THIS COURSE CAN STILL BE ENJOYED BY ALL STANDARDS OF GOLFER (HIGHER HANDICAPPERS MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PLENTY OF BALLS)
