What the club says: Banstead Downs is a downland course built on chalk. It has a reputation for being an "all year round" venue and rarely is the course unfit for play. The course has been designated an area of Special Scientific Interest because of the natural flora and fauna. The fairways have a natural undulation and good definition.

Good value for money

Nice downs style course. Friendly pro shop and overall very good. Watch out crossing the busy road.

Immaculate greens in a lovely setting

Took up the option of a £20 introductory green fee and will definitely return for another crack. The course is in excellent condition and the greens are the best I've played on for a while

The course was in very good condition considering the lack of rain we've had. The staff were very friendly especially the ladies behind the bar.
All in all a very nice day out

Varied and challenging

Greens fast but true. Provides a good challenge with the need to plot your way round the course. Played for ?30 which was reasonable but it's mostly ?40 or above which is a bit steep especially during the week.

Fantastic course with fast true greens - Classic James Braid design that appears easy but the greens have some severe slopes and can make you look foolish
The only issue is having to cross the A217 (mad mile) - you need to be quick when crossing as the traffic really does motor along.....

Great downland course, played recently after many years since last visit. The lengthening of the course has worked very well and most of the new bunkers are excellent. A shame that some were not so good, they were just featureless circles in the ground filled with sand, have since found out that the poor ones were done after the course improvements and not by the same people. Perhaps they should get the professionals in to re-do them!
Apart from that, still enjoyable, would recommend.
