4 reviews of Thames Ditton and Esher Golf Club
A short but challenging 9 hole course. It's like an inland links course. Siuts the accurate player rather than the long hitter. Some greens not in a good state, difficult to find your way around the course if you are new to it as there is very poor signage. Also lots of crossing holes and people walking dogs so need to be vigilant at all times. Staff were friendly. When I played I got the sense that the members hadn't seen a woman at the club for a very long time! Friendly but slightly patronising. No women's tees either on any holes. Clubhouse was basic. Pro shop was small. I didn't see any practice areas but perhaps I missed it? I won't return again to play here as I found the course a little unimaginative relaying too much on the very long rough to add challenging to each hole.
Well,What a difference - well done to the members and new greenkeeper! What value, new clubhouse, food now avialable and course in to nick!! well done to all concerned
I've played here a few times in the past couple of years. It's a great little course if you can keep it straight. If you stray off the fairways or don't carry far enough the rough will claim your ball, so bring a few spares. Watch out for people walking across the course (on way to station / with dog etc.) as not many seem to watch out for the golfers. It's great value for a 9 hole course so don't expect really pristine conditions or immaculate greens or too many bunkers. On a hot day (or any day really if you don't need an excuse) you can drop into the pub near the 6th tee. Great value, very friendly staff and surprisingly re-visitable!
I thought the course was extremely badly kept. The greens were very poor, the fairways were like playing from light rough and the bunkers were full of gravel.
I was expecting 18 holes but there were only 9 played from 2 different tee positions which are right next to each other so makes no difference.
The pro shop is tiny with hardly any equipment worth looking at. ( they didn;t even sell premium balls) only a very poor standard Top Flite ball.
On the whole I would say its a very poor golf experience and would never play again and would certainly not recommend to anyone if they want to play a half descent course.
