Give it a go for sure!

This is a course worth playing without a doubt. There are a lot of negative reviews about the greens which is fair however, they are making a come back and it?s still worth playing especially if you?re a 2 putt player! Wonderful creative course to really test your skill! Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Give it a go.

North Downs is a wonderful course, not long, with well maintained fairways & superb greens. It's more of a challenge than at first realised two sides to the course giving wonderful views. The club house is a very pleasant place to eat well priced & good food. A 4 ball with a coffee, bacon sandwich after 7 holes. & a beer to finish with for £25 each is a fair price. Friendly golfers make North Downs Golf club a place to visit.

Beautiful Course

The course is over various valleys, so expect to be playing uphill, downhill & across slopes. It looks stunning and has great viewes out.

It can be confusing as a first timer to know where to go next but fortunately everyone was very helpful in pointing us in the right directions.

The rough is fairly punishing we found - especially with the leaves making it hard to find your ball!
I cant wait to come back and play it again though.

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.

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

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

Will be returning!

Course currently suffering from unwatered greens due to problems with supply. However this was explained by the pro shop prior to teeing off and we coped admirably with that challenge clearly in mind. Testing course with lots of undulations and typical downland topography. Very enjoyable particularly the Stroke 1 10th - a cracking set-up. Watch out for the 9th too (aptly named “Hit And Hope”), a downhill par 3 with all sorts of protection with risk and reward if you can hit the left hand back for a roll on birdie chance. No doubt will be returning later in the season and hopefully when the excellent lounge bar is open!

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

What a waste - Millionaires golf - Great

Apart from one buggy 8 holes behind us and a couple of singletons after them, no one on the course. In very good condition though the greens fooled both of us as looked faster than they played. Not much sand in the bunkers but top level looked as if very dry and would have expected more. Overall in good condition and great time to play

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!
