16 reviews of Sutton Green Golf Club

Built in the golf boom years at the end of the 20th century when quantity was every present but quality was sadly lacking, Sutton Green is a product of its time. I have no idea who's currently responsible for the place but seemingly it's not being looked after by 'golf people' so to speak. Shame really because there's actually some potential here but the haphazard use of trees in all the wrong areas and the reliance on water leaves you thinking that you've just experienced the work of a landscape gardener, rather than a golf course architect.

We played a golf society at sutton green and overall found it to be good value, the course its self was in very good condition, especially considering the recent weather, excellent greens and quite fast, the rough is quite long for hcp golfers, you can feel hard done by if you only just creep of the fairway to find yourself in 6 inches of thick rough.

The club house is okay, however we did find the hospitality slightly lacking to say the least, whilst the staff were very polite and accommodating, when it came to our bacon rolls and coffee, not everybody got a served food and the coffee ran out before every body had even 1 cup each, and then there didn't seem to be anyone around to ask for a refill.

After we finished we all went back into the club house to to order food only to find that the kitchen was closed, quite a surprise for 5pm on a Saturday after noon,

I would recommend overall, but pre-ordering food is a must.

The 1 thing about the course that we found a let down was the fact that there's no driving range.

For a pay and play this is a pretty nice course. There are plenty of holes were you have to think, rather than it being just 18 holes chucked onto some parkland, which is what a lot of pay and plays feel like. Some very nice par 3s and a few lengthy 4s, as well as some shorter 4s where you have to think about where to place the drive. Was pretty busy when we played (Bank Holiday) but have played on slower courses. Greens were pretty poor, which was the biggest let down - we all got horrible bounces and bobbles on putts. Overall, for £25, not a bad place to play if you are looking for a last minute tee time thought not a major challenge.

Played here on 15/4/2011
I've been playing golf for around 18 months and although I don't have a huge point of reference I have to say this course is certainly a thinking course. Up until now most courses I have played you could comfortably let rip with the driver but due to the brilliantly placed hazards all over the course I had to make more careful selections both off the tee and on the fairway(ok maybe rough).
The course isn't heavily tree lined so at times can feel a bit open the hazards keep the course very narrow.
The whole course is superbly kept and the staff were very friendly. Will definitely be playing there again soon.

Played here Feb. 2010
Fairly standard modern course.
Worth playing but i'm unsure whether i,d want to play it again.It felt like a long walk round ,even from the winter tees & there's quite a lot of walking imbetween greens & tees.It's not heavily treelined & can feel a bit bleak & barren in places.
Quite a nice start ,the mid section holes a bit uninspiring then a good run of holes from 12 unto the finish .I liked that the course starts & finishes with a par 5 & there are some good water feature holes.
Oak trees are prominent features on 6 holes ,sometimes in the middle of the fairway.
Identikit modern clubhouse.
So,not a bad course but the standard £50 green fee must be to keep people away & even for the £25 2 fore 1 rate there's better to be had in the area.

Played on 1st April 2009 in sunshine. A well designed course fitting 18 holes in a tight package of farmland, although the 4th/6th and 7th/8th are a bit close together. There are 3 good par3s (3rd, 13th and 16th). They should remove the hedge in front of the 11th though, it looks like what it is, a hang-over from the farmland and detracts from a 235 Yard par3. The 18th is a good par 5 finish with a big home green in front of the clubhouse patio.
Fairways are still a bit thin, the course was built in 1995, but the greens look like they will be OK. We phoned ahead as visitors, but weren't told they had hollow tined all 18 greens two days before – the greens were best left alone. This omission was corrected by the manager later with a complimentary voucher for a two-ball.
A modern, functional well-furnished clubhouse with pleasant staff and a visitor changing room complete with lockers. An interesting course for a reasonable price. Will come again.

Played Sutton green on 9th march 2009. The course was very wet and the greens were slow and quite bumpy, If I had payed the full £50 I would have been disappointed. Its a great lay out and I'd like another go when the summer comes

After moving to live in Woking i played 6 local courses in the same price band with a view to joining one and chose Sutton Green to join.
Its a lovely course, not too long but certainly a thinkers course. On several of the par 4s its advisable to keep the driver in the bag and go with a 3 wood off the tee.
the course is always in great condition and never has temperary tees or greens.
There is water on 7 holes with the short par 3 16th played to a virtual island green. Favourite is the 14th played over a lake from the tee and avoiding the lone oak in the middle of the fairway. slight dogleg right with another lake down the right. push the tee shot right and have a long approach all over water - keep left!
Straight over distance is the order of the day.
Enjoy

Played here on the 17/8/2007. I have played here once before but couldn't remember that much about it, except that i enjoyed it. I was just as impressed 2nd time around. The course is varied with many different holes. There are some lovely holes where the water comes into play (9th/17th to mention two) The condition is really superb. At £250 with a green free voucher you can't go wrong player here.

I'd agree with most of the other comments, great condition, some lovely holes especially the 9th. Pro shop were very helpful, £25 on 241's is a bargain.

Our society played here today following a few weeks of very dry and warm weather, and the course was in absolute mint condition - the ground staff should be congratulated for their efforts.
The greens were again in perfect condition, allowing pitches to bite. Very subtle borrows led to a few lip-outs.
The course is not particularly long, which makes it very satisfying and enjoyable and perfect for society days.
I'm not sure I would want to pay £50 for a round here, however there are good rates available for societies, our visit cost £28, which included coffee and a very filling bacon roll.
Overall an excellent day's golf ( I scored 42 points playing off 21, hence the enthusiasm...)

A very friendly and welcoming club with some very polite members. We were called through two fourballs and had a very pleasant well-paced round.
The rough has been allowed to grow apparently for an upcoming competition, with the price to us being a number of lost balls which you would normally expec to find - accuracy is at a premium.
Some lovely testing tee shots including a very inviting drive between trees and over a bunker on the 14th and a tricky par 3 16th with virtually an island green.
Nice course, will play again.

The course looks easy,but you need to be straight and the greens are developing some interesting borrows.Money has been spent on new landscaping and this is helping to mature a newish course.Can be slow at weekends.

Great course, nice clubhouse and easy going atmosphere. The course looks easy at first glance but is more than a challenge. The long 7th is a favourite, and I like the par 3 16th which is tougher than it looks.
