Highly Recommended 2020

What the club says: With grounds over 400 years old, this course still remains one of the finest kept playing surfaces in the area. The added benefit of being situated on sand and gravel, in addition to being partly surrounded by the River Thames, means that all-year round golf is almost guaranteed.

Avoid

The course is not in good condition. It’s been badly neglected during the lockdown and some of the greens have huge holes that have been dug by animals. The green keepers have just thrown sand in these and left them.

This was once a real members club that welcomed visitors. The existing members are now leaving in numbers and it’s becoming an overpriced pay and play that is trying to cram every tee time full to make as much money as possible. The new owners claim they are investing in the course and they have started putting in irrigation for example. But leaving the course to fall apart during lockdown doesn’t seem to support this new ethos.

Maybe they will get the course back in shape. But that looks a long way away and right now, I would not pay to play this course.

Things really looking up

Played here yesterday for first time since the summer and new owners have already made impressive changes with investment pretty evident. The already good greens are being improved further with drainage, fairways are getting lots of attention and overseed, and there are plans to improve the bunkers, range and clubhouse too apparently. Fairways in particular are already showing real improvement, though I was a bit surprised that a couple of small areas weren't marked as GUR to allow their recovery. Friendly welcome as always, and really good informative website now too which I think is so important these days. I look forward to returning in the spring and seeing even more improvements. Only negative was a 2 ball jumping in from nowhere on the 10th tee, not sure what the club can do though I've never seen a marshal here. Also, some warning signs for walkers would be worthwhile, especially across 5th and 6th holes.

Fresh breeze course was in very good condition despite all the rain over the last few days
Greens were not running true due to the the sand and the hollowing carried out this week

One to watch! Course has recently been purchased by a new charitable organisation who are investing heavily in the maintenance and upkeep of the course after years of neglect, definitely one that’s only going to get better in the future

Great setting not matched by standard of course

Beautiful setting but let down badly by really poor fairways. The greens and tee areas were pretty good but fairways were badly damaged and looked after in general. I would not have minded too much but at ?50 per round I expected better.

A good course in a great setting. Course under new management so next time I play will be expecting an improvement in the fairways.

Good but could perhaps be so much better

Some interesting holes, good quality grass driving range, nice clubhouse and lots of wildlife with herds of deer roaming freely. I've played here a few times now, always in the summer and a number of the fairways get baked out, so you can get some crappy lies. I often think it feels a bit linksy and despite the fairways I've always enjoyed playing here. Some holes have more grass and better fairways, and from what I gather it drys out pretty quickly in winter. Now that Crown Golf have sold it to a charitable organisation (who's aim is to get more people playing golf) it will be interesting to see what investment goes into the course, especially as the prices have been slashed. I'm not complaining about ?14 for a twilight round midweek, which is excellent value here but is it sustainable? Time will tell no doubt. I noticed too that they're now offering under 18 membership for free, and unlimited golf too - that's awesome for juniors.

Open but challenging

I played this course for the first time on the 23rd June with three others. As COVID restrictions were in place no facilities were open. The course was in good condition with very true and flat greens. Although the course looked very open I found myself in trouble a couple of times off the tee, accuracy with the driver is needed. When I strayed off the tee I was still able to find the ball in most cases but the rough was tough to play out of. Good challenge and would like to play again.

Great Location... Poor course

The course is nicely positioned near Hampton Court, however, that's where the positives end. Fairways were bare and in poor condition, probably the worst I've played this year. Considering the amount of rain and sunshine we have had this year, better care could have been taken of the fairways. The greens had been spiked and therefore were not playing true and had areas of bare patches on them.

Shame about the bunkers

Nice enough course. Just need to keep it straight. As soon as you are off the fairway , the lumps and bumps, though quite small, make it difficult to track. Greens quite spongy, in fact the day b4 4 greens were temps. Would play again if in the area as par 4's are reasonably long for the average golfer. Oh and then there are the bunkers....more like traps for the deer to enjoy themselves in. Very lumpy and bumpy. Go together with the fairways.

Great course

The greens were in absolutely beautiful condition, however the fairways were dry, hard and not great at all.
Navigating around the course is slightly difficult as there are no markers on the tee boxes and the layout has changed since my last visit.
I still enjoyed the course though and will definitely visit again

Beautiful place to play golf, like most places the fairways were baked and the rough thin (thankfully) but the greens were near perfect... fast and true. The tee boxes were also great given the prolonged summer without rain. It played quite short due to the summer but this will be a test of accuracy when it’s back to regular conditions. Well worth a visit.
