The greens were atrocious, I was disgusted - there was more mud visible than grass.

Took a battering from the rain and C19

Oh dear....usually sucha delight to play but this time after the harsh rainfall and then C19 (can only assume that minimal work been done over spring) the greens are in an awful state and the fairways not much better. The greens are burnt out. Seems either decease or moss has got to them. Very dry and so ball runs a lot. Good news is the rough has been cut and so not too penal. It will take most of this year and next spring to fully recover

Average

At present the Green's are shockingly bad. Can only assume this is due to green keeping being non essential works during lockdown.
Rest of the course is in OK shape

Usually a lovely course but disappointing this week due to the greens being spiked week beginning 4th July 2016 leaving them pretty much unplayable (if you want to get a decent score!!) Most disappointing is the fact that the work on the greens was not mentioned on the Clubs or the booking website that I used. I feel it's only fair that players can be made known of a courses condition before they pay good money to play. Will be reluctant to play there again any time soon, which is a shame. Would recommend usually but not in this condition.

The Pro's The Course Is Immaculate. A Round Of Golf There Is Relatively Fast. The Food Is Of A Good Standard. The Con's It Is Difficult To Get To The Bar On A Busy Day As There Are To Many People Gathered Around It. The Bar Service Is Slow On A Busy Day As They Only Have One Machine To Process The Transactions. The Interior Is Not Very Attractive As It Is Very Dated I Would Be Staggered If Anything In There Was New. It Is Annoying As You Cannot Order Food At The Bar And You Have To Walk Into The Spike Bar And Order It There Which Is A Pain. It Can Be Annoying On The Course When You Are Stuck Behind A Five Ball That Will Not Let You Through And The Round Will Take Forever. Finally With The Pro-shop It Is Good For The Essentials For The Round Of Golf But It Over Priced Items Which Puts Me And Other People From Buying Off Them. - Dave Reviewer

Great views, testing, tight course

A lovely course, not the longest, but a good test. You also have to think about club selection to keep out of trouble that is usually not far off the fairways. Only negative was the condition of the tee boxes, could do with some attention.

Nice course, fairways in very good condition but awful greens. A straight, flat putt could deviate drastically several times.

Relaxed Monday PM round

Nice quiet round with good pace on a monday PM. Paid £20

Bit of an issue with green watering means, putting surfaces are poor

Quirky and hilly course. If you were a member here you would certainly keep fit. Mature trees lining most of the fairways, easy to get stuck behind if you are not accurate from the tee. Some holes very difficult if you have not played the course before. Layout not very intuitive so it's possible to get lost. The invisible green on the 14th and the hill climb on the 17th were highlights. A couple of the long par fours very hard. Enjoyed it though!

Typical tree-lined Downs Course

Very friendly clubhouse serving a lovely breakfast! Very tight parking on a busy Sunday morning, maybe I missed overflow parking? Well presented course but a little repetitive with mostly straight fairways and very flat greens (i still couldn't putt - after heavy rain they needed a trim and a roll, that's my excuse). Protected by some narrow fairways and punitive rough which looks benign but seems to swollow balls and snag club heads! Quite a few short holes but with enough longer par 4s to compensate.

Needs playing more than once

Interesting course. Not long, but you need to know/plan your way round. Some very difficult holes, some very steep hills (17th is called Cardiac Hill for good reason). Good deal on at the moment. £27 for bacon sandwich and coffee and a beer afterwards.

Nice course, short but not easy. The thing that really let me down apart form the compacted bunkers, was the length of the greens. I have carpet which is shorter

Played here for the first time as was going to play Woldingham nearby but that was packed. Temp greens in play unfortuantely but unsurprising given the recent monsoon conditions, including the previous night. Paid £15 for the round which was perfectly acceptable. Overall a nice course which was surprisingly challenging for its comparitively short length. A number of sloping fairways on many holes and also some changes in elevation in parts of the course made it an interesting trek round. I will most likely come back any play again in due course.
