Location: Coming North from Reigate / the M25 on the A217.Just over 6 miles North of the M25 you go straight across the A2022 from Epsom to Purley at a large traffic lights, heading towards Central London and Sutton. After 0.9 mile of dual carriageway you come to a 'Y' junction at a roundabout, and you take the left fork towards Wimbledon and Central London, staying on the A217 (the right fork goes to Belmont and Sutton along the Brighton Road). About 200 yards after the roundabout, take the first left into The Crescent, then first left again into the 'No Through Road' leading to the Clubhouse.

Coming South from London on the A217 (Sutton-by-Pass). You cross the A232 from Epsom/Ewell/Cheam to Carshalton/Sutton/Croydon near Cheam Village, then drive for 0.8 miles before turning turn right at the traffic lights into Northey Avenue, then immediately left at the mini-roundabout into Burdon Lane. Go for another 0.6 miles, and when the Road turns left, watch for traffic from your left then go straight ahead into the short cul-de-sac and Club Car Park.

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.

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.

Ray M rated 5 out of 5 - May 30 2017

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.
