Terrible

Without doubt, the worst course I have ever played in 52 years of golfing! Terrible ‘fairways’, useless signage and very odd layout - some danger in parallel fairways. Never, never again

STINKER

Basically a park. People sitting on “fairways” sunbathing and having a picnic. Dog Walkers everywhere. Families cycling across your path as your driving. Wouldn’t go back if you paid me.

Great place to play

Really enjoyable course to play. They now serve beers from the clubhouse as well as the 5th hold being next to a lovely country pub where the locals like to sit outside and cheer you on as you tee off.. Very social and friendly - I'll come again

Friday Afternoon Round

Golf course is basic but priced right for what it is. We enjoyed our round, make sure you pick up a map at the start. I would recommend.

Thanes Ditton and Esher

A friendly club run by enthusiasts
It’s in good condition and is a testing course
Common land so golfers have to be sympathetic to members of the public
The members and staff are friendly and helpful and I really enjoy playing the course.
Great place to go especially when most courses are not extending a welcome

Top Links Challenge in the middle of Surrey

Nice to see this old course on its way back !

Tight links lies and small greens protected and good value for money

Tough finishing stretch
A challenge on the signature Railway hole whether playing the 8th or 17th and a 4 up the last is no gimme!

Please contact me via the club please. 02083981551. After all our effort and hard work on a course we lease from the council and a clubhouse also leased, your video on YouTube is not helpful to our business, it’s full of assumptions and errors, and give the complete wrong impression. The vast majority of recent player feedback is positive, of course there are some negative comments. We can also talk about map reading tips and the signage on the course. Not impressed. Jeff Hammond. COO.

The course is very cheap

The course was cheap but the greens and fairways were shocking. There was a very dangerous shared fairway. Many people walking dogs who would walk right up the middle of the fairway. But again was so so cheap 7 pound for 9 holes. You can't really have to many issues with that.

Thanks for the feedback. I’d like to respond to them. The Club lease both the clubhouse and course based at the common. All common users including the GC golf members have right of way using the common. We generally have a good relationship with dog walkers etc. There is a shared fairway for 2 holes, and yes you do have to be careful and give right of way to other golfers on occasion. We are totally reliant on the weather as there is no installed automatic watering system. The recent weather is great but affects the greens and fairways directly. I’m sorry you didn’t enjoy your experience but please give us another try when the Virus has passed. Jeff Hammond COO.

Please come and try the course in 2020. A lot of work has been done to improve the greens and Tee boxes. The fairways are slowly recovering. We lease and share the Common to use as a Golf Course. Our other fellow Common users have right if way when walking their dogs. Look forward to seeing any visitors. Jeff. Club Secretary.

Come and give the course another try! its common ground so there is nothing to stop other users on the common including dog walkers. Just like Wimbledon Common. There are shared fairways which you get very used quite quickly. We are working on the greens and fairways as usual this Month. After the hot Summer last year there is work to do. Thanks.
