Sunny dsy

Course was in great condition the only thing that spoilt it for me was too many stones in the bunkers.
Really looking forward to playing there again.

Fun Layout, Let Down By The Greens

The course layout is good fun. Hilly, dog legs, gettable par 5s, bunker surrounded par 3s. Sadly the greens are really poor. Some are quick, some slow and they bobble all over the shop. Really let it down, probably wouldn't return because of that.

Ruined by the greens

I like this course but the experience is ruined by the greens. I fear they have groundstaff who do not know how to produce good greens. They are like putting on bobbly ice. Not only that but the flags are positioned on sloppy areas. where you can lag a putt to two feet then watch it roll off the green! Given the poor state of the greens putting is a lottery. The Tee boxes are also in dreadful condition with many uneven meaning you scramble to find a flat spot to tee off. Such a great course deserves to be kept better. If you don't care about putting then this is a good value course, if you do I would avoid for the moment.

Selsdon in poor condition

Mid April, Greens in very poor condition, tee boxes bowed and unkept . Sad to report obvious lack of grounds staff and a course in very poor condition . Tee boxes patchy and many serverely uneven , the Greens were extremely poor too . Many greens are elevated so have to come in high, however unwatered and hard ( even for this time of year ) so unable to hold green . Very poor maintaince and management . Much better value to be had elsewhere , avoid unless desperate . Sad state of affairs .

Spring has come to Selsdon

Course is looking very good. A few new buggy tracks created over the winter and the fairways have been artistically mown. Some of the greens still await post-treatment manicuring but I suspect that will all be completed this week. The course reamins challenging with its undulating fairways and elevated greens.

Nice layout shame about the upkeep

Greens had been spiked and were very bumpy. Felt we should have been told before booking. Tees and fairways were very shaggy. It’s a really nice course just not well maintained.

No hold ups

Haven't played this course for a few years but with the course guide helped navigate and show any hazards. Tee boxes were not in great shape some bare and some required cutting. Friendly staff in pro shop who explained that as i booked 2 ball on a Hot Deal ( online ) we would of been paired up with another 2 ball but they had managed to slot them in earlier. Only regret was not getting there earlier to go on range and also practice my putting which was the only weak part in my round .

Autumn comes early at Selsdon

This is a great course in the summer but it retains moisture and the wet weather last weekend has taken its toll. Nearly a week later it is still damp underfoot and all the ground has some"give". Greens have been treated so they are bobbly and very slow. Better conditions can still be found elsewhere. On the plus side the "digger" wasps have all gone - treated or died.

Fairways improving; digger wasps in most bunkers

Like many courses in the South East, Selsdon's fairways became crisp and brown in the dry months of July and August. Recovery is now well under way but there are still many brown patches. Digger (or sand) wasps were very evident in most bunkers. This is rather disconcerting and I was glad I was not wearing shorts. Apparently they sting rarely and the swarming evident should not last too long because it is the result of young hatching. Some guidance from the pro shop would have been a nice touch!

Slow play

2 old fellas in carts with their wives caused a 5 and half hour round ! This led to 2 three balls having to play together just to make life bearable. Delayed at least 10 players!
Drinks cart staff aware but didn’t do anything!

Excellent condition despite dry weather

As we haven't had any appreciable rain for nearly 6 weeks all courses are looking parched and Selsdon is no exception. However the Selsdon greens have been kept well and are still in fine condition.

Great course

Tee off was at 1032. Course is in great condition. Play was slow but there was a competition going on ahead of us. Would recommend playing there . Didn't use the off course facilities so can't comment on them.

First time at Selsdon

Quite a long course. In good condition apart from the odd green. which is hardly surprising bearing in mind recent weather. Mid week in the afternoon and we had the course to ourselves. Not good for Selsdon's coffers but got around very quickly which was good for us.Raised greens are an interesting feature. Will definitely play there again.

Nice Public Course in London

Played this course for the first time, on a warm Saturday morning, one of the first groups out, so the course was in good shape and the pace was excellent, with only two groups ahead. Found this course to be quite nice, not really a TOO difficult, but a good round which could require most of the clubs in the bag, and thoughtful shots throughout. This included from several of the tees, rather than driving for distance. Was a hilly course, with a couple holes having some relatively blind tee shots but also added a little element of thinking about each shot. A few notable, scenic holes, and the dogleg left finishing hole with the backdrop was a great way to finish. Some holes were quite wide, so had some forgiveness, others quite narrow. Staff was supremely friendly, especially given it was 7am. Driving range was nice to have as well.

Greens were relatively flat and were a little slow on the day, but most were in good condition in terms of bumps/divots and grass grown in well. Only a couple of the greens were tiered. Rough was a little too long, making it difficult to find balls just a couple yards off of the fairway.

I would definitely play again. Just a nice, reliable public course and didn't seem overly crowded despite the mid 20's April day.

Mid winter golf

A mature golf course which for the time of year and in view of the recent rain, was better than many of the previous reviewers experienced, was far drier underfoot than I’d expected in view of comments by friends, all in all, for the price well worth a visit.
