Credit to the greenkeeping team, cultural practices up to date and very good, greens had just been sprayed (usually difficult at this time of year) and as a result greens disease free, short cut and running very true.
Always enjoy playing here a good test without being too difficult, interesting good layout and good presentation and facilities plus they serve Doombar !!
Note : an equipment wash down facility would be useful
The pace of play is absolutely ridiculous we had to wait on every shot. Quite often there were 2 groups waiting on the tee at the same time. We did see a Marshall on the course and he did not do anything to speed the slow groups up. We left after 15 holes that had taken nearly 5 hours.
Such a pity as it is potentially a very good course.
Group in front had no concept of pace of play lost 2 holes to the group in frontof them by the 5th hole. No thought to allow a much quicker 4 ball play through
Nice course - some upkeep needed
Course has some very nice challenging holes and is good fun. Could do with some tlc in places eg bunkers rock solid and no hole signage or yardage marker posts on first nine holes. They also double booked our tee time but thankfully other group were relaxed about it.
Great condition given the dry weather
Enjoyable round with fairways and greens in fantastic condition given the weather. Probably should have got buggy as course is quite hilly etc.
Good value for money
Be aware of bunkers
Played here for the first time, good customer service from the young professional. The paths around the course need updating ( should be of tarmac) more yardage markers needed, as for the “BUNKERS “ no sand just stones and grit even if there was sand very few rakes!
We had a mixed welcome in the pro shop, the pro was happy to get us booked in but didn’t offer any information on the course of facilities.
This is a really good course that is very well maintained and a very good test of golf with a number of long par 4’s, undulating fairways and greens. There is generally quite a lot of room off the tee to hit driver but there are also many well placed strategic bunkers. Pace of play was ok and would recommend to all. We will be back.
Such a shame as it looked to be a great course online. When I got there all I could see were daisy's covering the fairways. The greens were extremely slow and the bunkers were in poor condition. If you missed the fairway but a couple of yards the rough was extremely long.
What made the round unbearable however was the pace of play. I spend 1 hour and 45 minutes to play 6 holes which is out of this world. The people playing the course were noisy and there was no marshal in site. Will not be visiting here again for a while.
Good but probably best in summer
Good course, quite long. Some tough par 3’s and some good looking holes. Had been raining the day before but the ground was very unforgiving. Would like to play again in the summer months
been meaning to play this course for months now, finally played it today and it was brilliant considering the weather the last few weeks. Greens in perfect condition running true, fairways also perfect condition. no standing water anywhere and the rough wasnt even boggy
100% recommend this course.
I would suggest hiring a buggy as its very hilly
Wonderful course and great value
I can't believe more people don't know about this course. Having played many courses over the last 18 months, this is the best for variety, beauty and value. Each hole gets you thinking (work buying a guide for £5 in the pro shop) with plenty of slopes, hazards, elevated tees and greens and undulating greens.
I've played this course now about 10 times and I've only once been disappointed (there was a large society playing which meant I was only able to play 9 holes, I was given a free round by way of an apology).
I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking for a challenging round at a very reasonable price.
considering the time of year the fairways and greens were in excellent condition. The only downside was too many people in short space of time led to congestion on 11th - in fact that meant 11 players on one hole!! a call to the pro speeded up our game but it still took 5hours!!
however, as compensation we managed to get a free round so good result in the end.
Nice course. Not much need for a driver for the longer hitter. 200 to 230 off the tee leaves mid irons to wedges to green.
Some slopping fairways side to side means runs offs into the semi rough.
Greens were in good condition just not very consistent making outside 12 feet hard to judge pace.
Nice course, good round and would definitely recommend it. Definitely requires some thought in managing your round.
First Time Playing
First time playing this course and was very happy with what Surrey National had to offer.
Well maintained tee boxes and fairways however my only downside was the greens were very slow, this was probably down to the couple days rain before the round though so can't blame that on course management.
Cannot wait to go back and try and better my score though. Would recommend for players of all abilities however the hilly course might be a challenge for elderly or ill health.
Slow play and Etiquette
I was playing as part of a two ball and we had a four ball in front of us. We never pushed the group in front as nobody behind us until we got to the 11th tee and the four ball didn't let us through. We asked at 12 why and they said there is a four ball in front of them. Not the point as we were a two ball. We had to wait around while they looked for balls etc. Ruined the round for us and such bad etiquette.
We arrived early for breakfast , which is good value for your money and then after we warm up on first tee . We proceeded to play the fairway in very good condition with excellent green they were true and quiet quick , the golf ball roll on line , the first cut of rough about 1" deep and the second cut about 2" to 3"" deep so if you hit your ball in there it was quiet difficult to find as a lot of clover and the ball sat down , the bunkers were in good condition with the odd one GUR due to a lot of water in them . The green keepers were on the course doing maintenance...
Best all round course played for some time and play weekly at different courses. Challenging, greens and fairways in great condition. All of our four ball really enjoyed the game
Nice modern course
Plenty of hills and bunkers to make things interesting. we had a thoroughly nice afternoon in the sunshine. The greens were good enough for the contours to break in the ball line. Everything was well looked after and the fairways were cut to a good length.
I suppose the only negative thing i would say was it was a shame about the swearing from the players. I am no prude, but i found that some of the guys did not understand course etiquette. Shame really
