Classy, sums it up just right I think.

We had a group of 12 playing, and as the organiser of our day out, I was greeted as soon as I entered the clubhouse by a very charming and helpful man named Sebastian who showed us to our reserved tables in the beautifully decorated dining area, which has views out over the course through huge, ceiling high, windows. What a way to start the day! Sebastian ensured our food arrived promptly and that we had everything we needed for our day on the course. It's not something that you will find at most golf courses and all 12 of us were thoroughly impressed. (Thanks Seb!)

I checked the group in at the well-stocked pro-shop with the head pro Steve, who again was a very genuine, helpful guy. He even let one of our group take out and test a demo driver, which was a nice gesture.

The course itself is made up of 3 nine's, of which we only played 18, the blue and yellow 9. (I will be back to try the Red 9 very soon). The yellow nine is the shorter of the two, but requires good course management as bunkers and ditches are strategically placed on many of the holes. There is also quite a bit of elevation change to keep things interesting. The blue nine was slightly longer and flatter, and you could hit driver nearly every hole, but you had to be accurate, as anything astray would land you in trouble. This is how a good golf course should be, good risk/reward. If you don't want to take driver, the holes play longer, but are very accessible with long irons as nearly all greens have a nice open front. Do not be fooled though, it is easier said than done! Overall I preferred the Blue 9, but others in our group preferred the Yellow, they are both great.

With regards to condition of the course, the greens were superb. Some of the best greens I have played on in this country for a long while. They just rolled so true, and were fast, but not stupidly fast. I think the green keeper has done a great job. The fairways and tee boxes were immaculate, the few bunkers I went in had plenty of sand in them and you can tell they are maintained to a high standard, no rough edges and not a stone in sight. The rough is thick, very thick in places, and I can see the frustration of some other reviewers as I lost a ball or two that I thought I would find, so maybe this is the only negative about the course, but it is a small one in the scheme of things.

After the round we went to the very modern clubhouse to enjoy some refreshments from the bar and had food on the patio outside. Everybody in our group enjoyed the food, compliments to the chef on that part. We didn't have too much time to stay but the clubhouse also boasts a pool table and a golf simulator, which would be great fun to use, maybe next time.

Overall, this is a truly classy establishment, a million miles away from the snooty, old school golf clubs that look down their nose at you if you are not a member, and it is so refreshing to experience that in the UK, especially in London.

You've got to try it out!

First time playing here in a while. On a society day and played the Orange course (Red/Yellow 9's). Course in great condition and society were very well looked after by the club. Food both before and after was nice and good service in the bar. Bunkers pretty consistant which made a nice change from other places I've played recently. Greens were absolutely rapid, especially anything downhill. Look forward to heading back in the near future.

Apart from bunkers course was very playable

Played this during the tailend of the rainy season. And the course was surprisingly in good nick. Must have good drainage!! Managed to play the Yellow and Blue 9 holes which are completely different in layout. Usually play Blue and Red and these two are fairly similar.

Greens

What’s happened to the greens. I noted a few months ago they have been made smaller and now they have deteriorated into quite average condition. The greens here use to be this courses best asset.

Good as always

Playing on society day and we were well looked after over the day. Have played here many times before and course in decent condition as usual. Played the 'green' course (blue and yellow 9's). Both are interesting and give you cause to think as you go round. Greens were very good. Always look forward to playing here.

Great course with superb members. Greens are excellent and holes well defined by rough. Really rivals the London Club, without the price tag.

We have an annual "Mums and Sons " game, and the venue had alot of boxes to tick.....
Close to good London rail link so the sons could get back.
Golf that was challenging without being stupid,as not everyone is a regular golfer.
Good food.
Attractive, welcoming clubhouse and pro shop.

Farleigh came up trumps on all counts.... and threw in a sunny day into the bargain. we all had a great day, lost a few balls (found a few too) ... we played the yellow and red courses.. the greens were perfect. The bacon rolls, and bottomless coffee, were fantastic, and the roast at the end of the round was just what was needed.
There were plenty of staff around who were attentive without being annoying.

Having played this course a few times previously, and wanting to do something different for my Dad for Fathers Day (as i now live in Perth), i emailed the team about vouchers. After a quick phone call and EXCELLENT service by Seb and his team everything was painlessly arranged!
Last time i played the course it was one of the worst days on record (only played as my Best Man Bruggers insisted) whereby the guys in the Pro Shop loaned me some waterproof trousers and the course really held up well. Plus the bar looks fantastic!
i will always come back and play this course when in the UK.

The course itself is in good nick, greens will take a well hit ball, they run true and are a good pace. What I don't like is the lack of definition, due to the absence of trees- the place used to be a farm, so it's very open. The fairways are therefore defined by some extremely long grass just off the first cut of rough. The higher handicappers I was playing with found the long grass very tough, as once you're in it you're either hacking out sideways or re-loading. Not a bad course by any stretch just not my fave.

I arranged 27 holes on 1st August for 28 golfers with handicaps ranging from 4 to 24. Arrived about 08:30 for bacon rolls , tea / coffee. Played the blue 9 holes starting at 09:30 and had arranged a rolling lunch for about 11:30. First tee for the 18 holes at 13:00 giving everyone time for lunch and a drink. I spoke with the G.M prior to teeing off in the morning and he arranged a set menu for hot food to be served on completion of our days golf, which i had not asked for prior to arrival. Many of the society had never been to Farleigh, but told me that they had a fantastic day, comments were made on the professional attitude of the staff, especially the starter being helpful and friendly (John), the food and the facilities. The course was in a very good condition, the greens were commented upon as being probably the best some people had played on for a very long time. The fairways were a little dry, obviously due to the recent extended heat spell. The attitude of all members of staff towards us was great, friendly and professional, nothing was a problem. Cold drinks were brought round the course during play which was great. We had a private suite for our lunch, great shower facilities on completion. No one from my society had any problems whatsoever, great atmosphere within the clubhouse, great 27 holes and a fantastic day.
