What the club says: After a gentle start (the first two holes being pleasant, but straightforward), the New course really starts to show its mettle. The heather comes into play and the holes progressively become more challenging. There are six par fours measuring over 400 yards in length; the 5th, Stroke Index 1, is a massive 469 yards from the white tees.

top quality

If you are not driving off the tee well, it is very tough. Avoid the heather. Greens fantastic.

Tough, championship, classic course

I was playing here as a freebie so value for money for me was excellent. Having played many top courses all over the world, this was a very unique experience playing a very flat heathland course. It was hard to gain perspective of the hole from the tee and fairway but then that is what makes it a tough championship course. Conditioning was good, the bunkers in particular were fantastic. Greens had recently been top dressed so weren't as quickl as expected. It is not a classically pretty course but it feels very tranquil and you know you are walking in the footsteps of golfing greatness and history. Well worth playing if you can.

Good test of golf

This course is always a great one to play. Harder in the summer as fairways are hard and a different approach to the game is needed Greens are fantastic.

Gotta play this..

Another top 50 course ticked off my list. Luckily invite from Golf Monthly made this affordable. Love everything about this course apart from the heather which is extremely punishing.

Nice course

Historic course loads of history in club house. Greens were ok ish but understand there's some bid events coming up in the year.
Bunkers some good but some had work going on.
Fairways and tee boxes very good.

Shame about the sand

Normally a beautiful course and in excellent condition. Sadly the groundsmen had sanded the greens so there was absolutely no roll at all

Lovely Condition, very friendly members. The old course is a great test in the wind. Two ball course kept moving, never had to wait.

Made to feel very welcome on a wet and windy day. We were advised that the greens had been hollow tined a week earlier but they played pretty well if no doubt a little slower than normal. Played on the old course on the winter offer so good value compared with summer green fee. It's a decent track and one to 'tick off' but if I'm being honest not overly memorable to entice me back. One point I would add and I'm surprised that other reviewers have not mentioned is the noise of the M25. Apart from the 1st hole you can hear the road on pretty much every hole and we had to significantly raise our voices on the 9th tee! Granted it was a wet day which probably increases the noise but it does detract from the experience.

Walton Heath is a fabulous facility. It is a 'proper' golf club, very traditional. There are two courses, the Old which is more famous and is slightly longer and the New. Both are side by side and share the same terrain, so they are pretty equal. Both are in the top 100 courses in the U.K. It has lots of history, as James Braid was the pro there and the Ryder Cup has also been played there, so loads of pictures adorn the walls. The US open qualifier is also played there each year, so there is also signed player memorabilia in abundance. The clubhouse is very nice and the food is exceptional. I have been here several times over the years and the welcome can be a little frosty but today it was the best I have ever experienced there. The reception and bar staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The courses are simply outstanding and a true test of golf. The greens are true and normally very fast. When you finish, the showers and changing facilities are first class. The only issue with Walton is the cost. It is £130 a round which is obviously not cheap and means the average person can only play it once in a while or for a special occasion.

Played the Old course - totally iconic , very challenging with a 200yd plus par 3 to start with !!! then the course opens up in spectacular style - heathland is superb , course in fantastic condition and a good challenge , wind direction on the day is crucial. If you get chance play this course - its like you could imagine it for the past 100 years. - Staff and pro shop very helpful. - Hard to fault.
