What the club says: Purley Downs, a 6308-yard, par 70, SSS 70, downland layout, designed by JH Taylor in 1904, is superbly situated some 500 feet above sea level with magnificent views over the whole of London.

From the highest vantage points you can see Wembley Arch, Canary Wharf, Hampstead Heath and the City of London landmarks; some even claim to have seen Windsor Castle on a clear day.

Fantastic Condition

Middle of February, all greens in use and in amazing condition fro Autumn, never mind winter. Not particularly muddy. When other courses in the the area are either closed or quagmires, this course continues to be open and offering quality golf.

Nice ...if not a little too similar

Really enjoyed the round at Purely Downs. Cracking start on a picturesque par 3. The course is not overly punishing, and if your scoring well then sometimes this distracts you from analysing the course itself.
But having thought back I'd say how well maintained it was, (considering the awful golf conditions we're having), but I'd also say it was a touch same same for too many holes.
Would I go back - yes without doubt. A dull course well looked after is better than a interesting course that's unplayable.

Best greens in East Surrey

Greens were brilliant. Course was interesting and a challenge, but a bit hilly. Overall, I would love to be a member, if they'll have me!
