What the club says: The course was created in 1975 by Sir Henry Cotton and Robert Sandow. The par 73, 18-hole course plays 6,443 yards off the back tees and makes superb use of the mature oak woodlands on which it was built. Strategically placed water hazards and bunkers along with tree lined fairways makes accuracy a premium and the course rewarding for all standards of play. Situated a stones throw from Effingham Junction railway on the main line from London Waterloo, and a short drive from the A3/M25 junction, the club is easily accessible and the perfect escape from the bustle of the city.

Good tree lined course in good condition despite no rain for 4/5 weeks.some fairways showing signs of drought and looking bare and hardpacked. All greens were good as well as tees. New driving range being added at present which limits any practice areas

it a beautiful day

course in superb condition considering no rain for nearly one month
greens were slowish but excellent condition a tribute to green keeping staff
it was still a bit of lockdown and we were second out so pace of play was fast

Poor winter conditions.

Poor winter conditions. Temp greens on fairway which were not cut or smoothed out. The Starter or Pro shop did not mention the temp greens, shows little regard for visitors.

NIce, but......

This is an ok course. Winds it's way though some nice countryside. But, there's no wow factor at all. No signature hole that we could pick out. It's a bit samey for most of the holes.
When we played it the greens were soaking wet and the fairways weren't giving any run. Despite there not having been that much rain in the days before. A bit worrying for when winter comes.
We got a good welcome in the bar and the food was very good.

Lovely course-if you can find it!

First time playing this course. Very, very impressed. Greens were fantastic and in good conditions. Layout was a little disappointing.

Nice tight tree lined course

Good course,every hole seems to be a tree lined and fairly tight. No great changes in elevation.Greens were in good shape and quite soft.

Haven't played "The Drift" for a while. Last time it was in the autumn with loads of leaves, this time it was a nice sunny day and the course was in good condition. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

This course is up there with some of the finest in Surrey. Fairways and Greens were immaculate. Back 9 longer and tougher in my opinion.
