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.

Great value for money

Best value of all the courses on the A3 corridor. Very challenging with traps in usual landing positions means you need to plot you?re way round the course. Any trip into the rough is likely to cost you the hole. Only downside on the recent visit was poor condition of the tee boxes.

Nicely laid-out good course

Good course. Interesting and challenging. Always good to play. Tough finishing stretch! Normally very good condition but has clearly suffered from the hor dry summer

Greens are poor

Challenging course if you do not find the fairways. Many of the greens in my opinion are embarrassing for a Crown Golf site. I think they need to look for a greenkeeper that can get these back to the old amazing standard.

very good value

Course in good nick considering the weather. Greens a bit slower than of late. Course challenging as always and longer than most other pay and plays.
Very quiet on course and two members ladies groups let us through without any delay.

Solid course

A well laid out course with some challenging water holes. The course is laid out pretty well with a bit of everything for any golfer.

From tee boxes to greens this course is in aweful condition. Such a great layout course too. It has got worse over time to the point now it\'s unplayable.

Mr M Foster

Can’t younderstand what has happened to the greens at Merrist Wood. Have played there many times and the wise I have ever seen them. I know we have had a very dry summer. But every green seem to have half a green that looked like it had received no water at all. Luckily we are Crown members and didn’t have to pay, but if I did would have been asking for my money back. Its a course we like to play but in its present state be surprised if it will recover this year. There were even cracks in some of the greens

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.

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.

Just after the snow so course wet and quite muddy. Just why they allow so many geese to foul virtually every fairway is beyond me. If they can get rid of the geese it would make a more pleasant round !!!!
