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.

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.

Nice course

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.

Beautiful tough course

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.

Nice course

Went here with a Society having not played it before.
Breakfast was great. Very windy conditions on the day made it difficult to focus on the balls. This course has loads of trees and leaves so on this day finding balls was pretty difficult. Course condition was probably 7/10 maybe 8 so acceptable. Greens pretty good. In all an enjoyable day with a good bunch.
