What the club says: Merrist Golf Course is deemed one of Surrey's longest golf courses measuring just under 7,000 yards. When played from the back tees the golf course offers a stern challenge for the most accomplished of golfers. The forward tees also provide an excellent test for the lesser player. Water is a key hazard from both the tee and when approaching the greens. The 17th over water and the par 5 18th a fine finish to an excellent round.



Most Helpful Review

Not a course I could recommend in its current condition. In order to get a reasonable lie the semi is attractive compared to the fairways which are in most places scorched and rock hard. When you do find grass and can take a divot the course plays as long as previous reviews suggest.
Water hazards and holes in general are in the main a little 'samey', although there are a few that appeal to the eye.
Rough is currently 3 feet tall, so avoid at all cost!
Greens were fast and in reasonable condition although some are almost beyond a joke, with pins on swales so severe that two putts should be celebrated as you would a chip in!
All in all a disappointing experience for a mid handicapper who struggles on tight lies.

Needs lots of TLC!!!
General layout of course is good with some interesting holes, greens were in pretty decent condition, but the overall condition of the course was poor, Tee-boxes looked unkept, stones in the Bunkers, fairways were particularly bad with heavy grass cuttings left on the fairway and light ruff. With some investment it could be a nice course but it badly needs quite a bit of money spent on it to bring it up to an acceptable standard.

Good course
Tough course where you have to play well. Fairways could have done with another cut but otherwise course in very good nick and surprisingly quiet.

Tom B rated 1 out of 5 - Apr 23 2018

Really poorly maintained and awful pace of play
Really disappointing round on one of the hottest days of the year so far.

- The fairways are a real mess. We were told they'd been cut 3 times in the week leading up to the Saturday - there there were piles of dead grass everywhere and the cut on the fairway made it feel like you were playing every shot from the rough.

- The rough, well, good luck finding your ball if you're even a few feet off the fairway. Terrible.

- Even the tee boxes were in awful condition with long grass coming up over your shoes.

- The greens were bobbly and the grass was clearly too long in most cases.

- The pace of play really topped it off and killed our game - 5hr 15 for us to get round as a 4 ball, waiting on pretty much every tee box.

Seemed a combination of letting too many people on the course and delays with people looking for balls in the overgrown rough.

The course layout is interesting enough, but the condition and pace of play was just appalling.

No fairways - grass was as long as the rough
I wonder if this might be a nice course in the summer, but unfortunately it was extremely wet which meant they hadn't been out to cut the fairways. There was therefore literally no difference between the fairways and rough and it made finding your ball after a decent drive very tough.
