Tricky start and well maintained course
Only discovered this course a couple of years back but it is a firm favourite of mine. What you see is what you get. Mature course with plenty of trees lining the holes. No dog legs. Greens are true and medium to large in size and well maintained. Tee boxes are narrow and rotated so no muddy or fully worn out areas. Though it was drizzling and high winds at times it was still playable and people obviously enjoy playing it as the weather predictions lived up to the billing but golfers still prepared to play. Car Parking is an issue with a tight carpark and very tight slots. But that won't put me off visiting again.
Great London Course
Very good course and very well situated for people coming from inner London.
For a first time player the course can be a little confusing and rating down rate of play as we were behind a society. Understand not representative.
nice course greens good
enjoyed the game friendly staff.
only had trouble finding my way around the course.
hardly any signs for the the next tee. lost a lot of time
A great afternoon of golf. As a single golfer I was let through with both grace and cheer by two groups and then I teamed up with another pair when we all caught a slowish foursome on the back nine. There is plenty of challenge on this course with trees and out-of-bounds often a concern. Tees and greens in good shape. Fairways mostly verdant green despite the dry weather earlier in the summer. Strongly recommended.
Good location , nice view, many good driving holes friendly staff and ample off course facilities.
Very enjoyable day out for me and my golfing partner..
Will play again.
Value for money
Great cause, in great condition and feels premium compared to others that are similarly priced.
You need to try this course
I admit, I wanted clearer and better maintained fairways and greens, BUT overall it is a fun course to play.
Decent length to challenge all levels and good social atmosphere.
Will be returning
The course is in a terrible state and the play was very slow. Bunkers unplayable, greens a mess, fairways not cut.
We walked off after 10 holes.
Can’t believe I’ve lived 30 mins from this course for the past 12yrs and yesterday was my first round here. Got it for £30 on golf now and that price it was bargain. Good mixture of longer and shorter holes, some straight forward and some get you thinking. Fairways were baked dry and green in very good condition so a perfect day for scoring.
I was playing alone and found all the members to be very polite and helpful (can get a bit confusing which direction to walk to each tee) and they all were very quick to let me play through.
Will 100% be back.
Friendly reception in the pro shop with a quick brief on the layout. Nice clubhouse and bar. The course is in decent enough shape all things considered. The greens were slightly dried out and cracked in places on a couple of holes but otherwise ran true and had some interesting and challenging undulations to deal with. Fairways were in ok condition but hard considering the recent hot weather. There were a few unlucky bounces ruining a couple of otherwise good drives. Bunkers were pretty dire, full of pebbles and weeds although there was enough sand to make a stab at it. Layout of the course in general was a little boring, mostly just straight up fairways with no real doglegs to deal with. Tee boxes were pretty tired too. Overall I thought for the price (£35) it was a decent course albeit in need of a little TLC. I'll be back though, hopefully after the course has had a little rain and attention given to the condition.
Decent parkland course and friendly staff. Ruined by the pace of pay which was painfully slow. Over 4 and a half hours for a 2 ball to get round with a number of us queuing on each tee to play. The greens were also a little disappointing as they were mottled on numerous holes.
Little Hiden Gem
Although the fairways were a little crispy due to the recent hot weather and when a course is playing fiery it often plays very narrow.
The greens were receptive and very true. they were running i would say at about 9 to 10 on the stimp but as a first time visitor i was very impressed. the guys in the pro shop were very friendly and welcoming.
I would would 100% go back.
Jewel n the South
Tucked away in South Croydon this is a not to be missed golfing experience for mid handicap golfers.
Nice mature course - Need to be straight!!
Like this course a lot. Starts with 2 Par 4's over 400yrd but then the next feel liek an add-on in a limited space. Much shorter and straight forward. Back to the mature grounds for the rest of the round with plenty of trees but generous run out areas and, though need a bit of TLC, well placed bunkers to catch the errand shot. Greens are difficult to read as quite undulating but not too many slopes!! Not one for the high handicapper i.e. above 24 I would guess. Clubhouse retains old charm and car park spaces built for the smaller thinner car!! I like it and will be back
Very nice course. Good level of difficulty for our high-handicap group, with some tight tees mixed with some wide fairways.
Greens in good condition.
So glad to be back
Being closed for such a long time during the Covid lockdown has affected a lot of courses, the major impact being the pace of the greens.I'm sure they will get back to normal soonish at Croham Hurst.The course is also busier in the afternoons than I have previously encountered and this refelcts the popularity of golf as a relief from the lockdown and the numbers of those on furlough and working from home who have greater flexibility in their timetables. But this is a lovely course which is well-managed. Still a top destination for me.
