7 reviews of Surrey Downs Golf Club
Me and my husband has just had our wedding reception here. They were very professional and very accommodating, lovely venue and lovely scenery.
Rob the manager was great, and one of the bar staff even offered to curl my hair after my hair went a bit frizzy.
Thank you Surrey Downs, keep up the good work.
I played here on a late twilight and have to say for £12.50 it couldn't be better value.
The course was in excellent condition, the staff were friendly and the layout was very enjoyable.
The last three holes are great fun, with a tricky par-3 (over 200 yards), followed by a driveable par-4 and a short par-5 with water short and left of the green.
Would give this course 5 out of 5 and honestly don't think there is a better value course in the area.
I played Surrey Downs towards the end of autumn and really enjoyed my trip there. From the yellows the course isn't as tricky as I thought it might have been, certainly not as tricky as the course website suggests, although I imagine that with the longer rough it would be a tougher prospect. Fortunately, when I played there it looked like the rough had recently been cut back for the winter.
I enjoyed the par 5 5th hole, which was very scenic with the autumn foliage from the trees along the left hand side of the fairway. That said, there are a number of wonderful viewpoints from various holes on the course. It does get very exposed on windy days though.
Where the course let itself down was the condition of the greens, which had recently been spiked, and the bunkers which seemed to have builders sand in them.
The clubhouse was very welcoming, and the bar had a decent selection of food to choose from.
I wouldn't have wanted to pay full price for playing here, but the deal we got made it a bargain.
Played here in a four ball and enjoyed the wide open spaces and views, On a late midweek afternoon it was not to busy and we made good time around the course. A lot of work had been done on the greens so that was somewhat of a lottery - i look forward to an improvement on my return. I could imagine a windy day adding to the difficulties.
I managed to look at the website view of the course and found it very helpful. Once started the first nine holes seemed ok but very mundane - things got more interesting on the back nine. The par 5 13th at 522yds was a test with placement of the tee and length of the second shot crucial. The 15th was a difficult 400 + yards par 4 where the right side bunker seemed to draw in tee shots and a small well protected green took some finding from just under 200yds. The 17th set you tactical choices with bunkers to the left of the fairway and another tight green to get on while the testing green protected by water on the 18th was a very attractive way to finish.
I played this course for the first time yesterday, and was really impressed. The course was in great nick, and I thought was a real challenge. The rough, even the short stuff, is really punishing, and the greens are big and undulating. You would not know you were inside the M25, with the rolling hills a lovely distraction from the golf. And astonishingly for a sunny June Sunday, it was quiet with no pressure from others.
A real find...
Played here midweek December 06 (£15 after 1 p.m)
I thought this downland course was reasonably interesting .It's well designed (Peter Alliss) & well laid out.
It's fairly open & exposed & it's shortness in length is compensated for by the wind which has to be factored in + the challenging nature of the greens.
These linksy greens were interesting with humps & steps (there's a huge humpy double green for the 9th & 18th holes).Considering the time of year the course condition was decent although off fairway was quite wet underfoot.
I found the club welcoming with a friendly & helpful pro + staff & the clubhouse was very modern & relaxed.
If you can get on for less than £20 i would say that it's worth investigating.
Played the course a number of times during past 3 months or so and bearing in mind we're into the winter months it has held up very well indeed. All round in excellent condition.
Some interesting and challenging holes that suit all ranges of ability.
New Club House is fantastic and offers all the facilities required.
