I played on 3rd September from the white tees.In assessing value I will use the TOT green fee of £15 though I paid nothing.
Hot Chocolate wrote a song about this course "every hole's a dogleg son" so as there is no map on the card or on the tees either buy the course planner or look at each hole on the club's website. You will then know what happens on the 3rd and that the daunting carry from the 18th tee is much less than it appears.
Good set of par 3's with 15 being the best. 5 and 10 the best par 4's.
Course looked great. Greens ran true but were rather slow. The well positioned bunkers were also in good condition.
There is a lot of walking between holes which is always a downside. I have played many similar courses so wouldn't rush back but worth a visit
Played here yesterday under their twilight deal £60 for a four ball after 2.00pm.
Course is very dry at the moment and the fairways were being scarified, the greens however were in great condition.
This is a course where a course palnner would be a great investment as there are a large number of blind shots and the direction of many holes is far from obvious.
The only hole that stands out is the last where unless you are supremely confident i would advise taking the shorter carry option.
The clubhouse and the pro shop was well stocked and very friendly, I do not know if i would rush back but with the offers available it is hard to ignore.
A lovely little course. I would reccomend playing here to anyone.
I would agree with most other reviews. Played today and course in great condition and a challenge for all levels. The par 3 17th a beautiful hole to play and the tee shot at the 18th a true risk and reward shot. Agree with quibble about no plans on card or hole so knowing where to play abit tricky at times. Would recommend to anyone and look forward to return trip.
Played here midweek June 07 (£22 using a county card).
Reasonably decent course.Peter Alliss designed modern course with sculptured moundings along the fairways & long grass in the rough.I was slightly non plussed by the front 9 but by the end of the back 9 i'd warmed to the course & had enjoyed the round.
A lot of thought has gone into the design & it reminded me a bit of Pyrford but with less water.
While there was nothing intrinsically wrong with the early holes (although off the whites there were too many medium/long iron shots in for my liking) i thought the back 9 holes were more enjoyable.The 17th is a fantastic 110 yard par 3 over a pond & on the par 5 18th you drive off over a lake & you have a clever risk & reward choice of two different routes through gaps in the trees to the fairway.
Excellent greens , good overall conditioning & presentation & this course drains incredibly well as there was absolutely no sign of the preceding days heavy rainfall.
One minor quibble was that there was no hole plan on the card or tee signs which meant sometimes you were aiming into the distance off the tee with not much idea of the shape of the hole.
For around £20 i'd say it's worth playing.
Our society had breakfast and coffee served by very friendly and polite bar staff, a good start to the day. Well stocked proshop with helpful staff. Although it had been raining for a couple of days, from the clubhouse the course looked as though it was draining well, and that was the case when we got out on the course, even the bunkers weren't too bad. All holes well laid out, a few doglegs stop you banging the driver on every hole, immaculate greens that run true, our 4 ball didn't get a single bobble all round. A couple of long par 4s S.I. 1 and 2, some long par 3s as well. Last hole is a par 5 teeing off over a lake with 2 options, 180 yards carry or 120 yards carry, gives everyone a chance in a society day. Definitely worth a visit.
Played this course yesterday and was quite impressed. All the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful.
Fairways, rough etc.. were bone dry but the greens were in excellent condition. It didn't appear too challenging at first, but the design meant that control of both distance and direction are essential to get away with a reasonable score, the short 17th and the tee shot on the 18th being prime examples.
Played today in a charity day and thought it was a great little course. Had to play off the yellows which made most holes play a little short to really challenge longer hitters. Will play off white tees next time! Greens in great condition and a couple of great finishing holes that could make or break your round. I would not describe it as difficult but may be more challenging if the wind blows!
Played the course last week, found the course to be in excellent condition. It is a very picturesque golf course. Facilities are great and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend the course to others.
Not a particularly challenging course and being very short enables some low scoring, a prime example being the closing holes of an exceptionally short 17th and (although an interesting tee shot) the 18th which doesn't warrant its par 5 status.
The courses main feature was the excellent condition of the greens and tee boxes, and overall a well kept course did make for an enjoyable stroll. However, this was to some extent marred by the rather unhelpful staff in the pro shop that gave the impression visitors hold a much lower priority here, a feeling that can certainly lead to playing elsewhere in future.
Course kept in first class condition with tees, fairways and greens all very good indeed - especially the greens. Considering this course is built next door to one of the best tracks in England (West Surrey) the design is a bit drab - not a lot of thought but they got the 18 in the space they had. Nice clubhouse and friendly pro shop. The entire visit was marred by the very unseemly custom of the club charging visitors 20% more than members for food and drink in the clubhouse. Having bought a temporary membership for four of us for the round, one would have thought that this kind of practice does not belong. It is the first time I have ever experienced it anywhere in Europe and undoubtedly makes it a good reason to go elsewhere in future.
Relatively short off the yellow tees but a good test of golf with many sharp dogleg par 4's. The greens in particular were in excellent condition. I played on a Saturday as a visitor and received a friendly and helpful reception. The round was however slightly spoiled by extremely slow play which was not 'marshalled' and bottle necks at a couple of the par 3's. Nevertheless it was an extremely enjoyable and interesting course to play.
Course kept in excellent condition. Tricky course, not for long hitters as accuracy is required. 17th hole over water onto a small green with hazards front back and sides. 18th long carry over water between trees dog legging right with green protected by bunkers.
Very enjoyable day finalised by excellent food and 19th hole.
