Banstead downs is a relaxing course, very good greens and easy to walk, nice people around the course, just be careful crossing the road.

Rory Hillary

Played June 2019 - One of the best maintained courses I've played in a long while. Excellent greens, which is something I look for over anything else. Saves you more shots being the theory!
Really helpful staff in the pro shop. The course was a tiny bit same same on each hole and but very enjoyable none the less. Will return but £30 green fee a little steep for a quick return.

Coming out of winter it's still a bit patchy but worth playing on the twilight rate. Can get a bit slow if there are matches on (got stuck behind 4 x 4 balls, wasn't let through so skipped ahead and played the 16 - 18 loop twice instead)

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.....
