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.

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.

Probably in the top 5 worst courses I have ever played. Clearly they've spent all their money on the clubhouse and nothing on the course. They let anyone play. I'm all for people learning the game, but when everyone you see looks like they've never played before it gets a bit much.
Had to walk off after 13 holes. That was at the 5 hour mark.
The course is not in good condition. It should have been left as a deer park.

What a stunning course! Its a true test of golf. I started my round at Hampton court palace with low expectations but boy was I wrong. The course keeps you guessing the whole way round and punishes you when you don't think! Course management is the key to a good round at Hampton (I will be aware of this for next time as I made a few wrong choices on the front 9) The greens are lovely the rough is tough and the fairways run and run add the deer to this and it truly is a unique experience in London! if you are looking for a great round in Surrey look no further....

Played on 25/06/14 in a 4 ball, it was our first time at Hampton Court and had read some good and bad reviews before playing.

We where met at the Clubhouse by a senior member of staff who assisted us with QA's that we had.

We new after reading up that this course was not going to be the easy but we took the course in our stride, course management is key to this course.
You have to be straight so don't think about using your driver all the time.

The greens where in tip top condition along with the bunkers.

A great day was had by all, this is one course you should try.

Great value for money, great clubhouse with lovely food and great service.

With play here again

I just joined the club and find the reviews to be quite harsh. I have played golf for 30 years and my handicap has in the past been single figures, so I think I have seen enough courses to judge. The course is not up and down. If played from the white tees and depending on the wind some par 4s are very difficult to reach in two shots (I drive 250 to 275). There is a marked difference between the front and back nice. The front is more park land, and a couple of short par 4s. The back 9 is very similar to a links course. Being a member of a links course in the past I find this a pleasure so close to London. True the fairways are not good. This is because the course is not allowed irrigation systems on the fairways (rules from the Palace). The greens are OK but after a long weekend the holes do suffer and need to be re cut. The staff are really nice, and the club house has fantastic food (French chef).

Enjoyable course with very good greens that are fairly well protected. Although I thought the Deer roaming around might be an annoying issue, it wasn't (quite the opposite)

Just played a twilight at HC and enjoyed it. The course is open but challenging with pretty thick rough and every green demands a good approach. The greens are excellent and tee boxes in good nick as well. Would be a stunner of a course if there was some water brought into play. One downside is that outside of twilight is pricey..... Will be back on a deal but not fornthe full green fee

Interesting course, friendly members but slow

The course is interesting, good layout and in fair condition. Friendly and welcoming members. Unfortunately the pace of play is slow. Policy is for four balls only, and the even though I played on a Thursday, the course was full, and the pace was around 4.5 hours. Worth playing if you have the time. Also, overpriced for what it is, but probably due to proximity to the centre of London.

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.
