What the club says: Gatton Manor offers a mature 18 hole woodland course, established in the late 1960s. At 6,600 yards the challenging course is championship length, the work of renowned Canadian golf architect, Commander John D Harris. No two holes are alike and the Commander has made imaginative use of streams, lakes, and tree-lined fairways.

Tricky Course

I have played here about 8 times now and always find it a hard course to play. Was a bit wet in places but considering how much rain we've had it held up well.

Quality challenging course

Gatton Manor is a good well structured course, that is particularly challenging for 20 plus handicappers but also as my colleagues said will punish those on 10-20 handicaps. The greens were top quality, the course has natural water hazards that ensure you have to think your way round! Enjoy it.

Really enjoyed this course. Tree lined on most holes and a good mix of par 3's, 4's and 5's. Course was in good condition and tests all parts of your game.

Challenging course

It?s a challenging course & some difficult greens. It didn?t help that greens had been heavily sanded but this time of year that happens. It was very busy due to the masters being on. The club should of identified that. 4.5 hours for a 2ball is too long.

Nice course with great potential

I enjoyed my round at gatton manor..I had seen some mixed reviews so went with an open mind...the greens we?re not amazing but I could see some work in progress..the layout is great and the surroundings are in a very nice part of the countryside..I think with a bit more work on some small details around the course and facilities this place could step up to be fantastic...

In great condition

We played this course two months ago and it was in very poor condition so had a word with the manager who apologised and asked us to come back for a complimentary game and assured us there would be a massive improvement. I am happy to say that we played on Wednesday 24 October and he was tru to his word and the course was in fabulous condition thank you Rob Weston A+++

I was looking forward to playing GM after a 2 year absence. My memory was of a tricky course always in pristine condition in beautiful grounds. Obviously, the period of closure has had a negative affect. First impressions are not great with the grounds close to the manor a little unkempt and the once pretty decent pro shop is still closed. However, the staff were friendly and the full English breakfast was very good. As for the course, it was a mixed bag. A combination of the hot weather and absence of maintenance made the fairways a bit of a lottery on lies with cracks, tufts and bare lies. Not terrible but not immaculate as they used to be. Tee boxes were split 50/50 - either really good and very poor. The bunkers were woeful. They had been raked to create an impression of quality but they were brick hard with barely any sand making it unduly penal for marginally wayward approach shots. The greens were actually pretty decent, consistent and with a good roll. As an aside, I think the stroke indices need revisiting. Pretty straight-forward par 3s had low SI's but a couple of the 400+yard dog leg par 4s had very high SI's. Finally, the 5th should be a par 4 not 5. Overall, the course and experience was fairly decent but naturally investment is needed to return it to the cracker of old.

What A Shame

First impressions count. Mens locker room had no light over the stalls and one of the three seats in the stalls was broken. The course was not good. Allowing for the hollow tining - it has to be done - green staff had dumped cores on green surrounds. 13th hole GUR had no white line and no dropzone - and anyway the green is in such a state it should be closed. 16th green front fringe is appalling - again GUR white line and drop zone needed. Most tee boxes were lumpy and tufty. I went in two bunkers and my partner four and we had to send time in all removing hefty stones before playing - why risk dinging an expensive wedge - the worst bunker being on the right hand side front of the 18th green which had little or no sand and dangerous exposed tree roots. The new owners may consider getting to grip with some if not all of this and a lot more otherwise they will lose many long-term visitors (I have been going there for over ten years).

Interesting course, challenging in places

A lovely course in the Surrey countryside. Making its way back from tough times when it nearly went under. Take sufficient 'tackle' as you may need, as the pro shop is quite basic at present.

Gatton Manor is still going through a period of change since it was recently purchased. The greens and fairways are not in the best of condition for a number of unforeseen reasons. We were assured that the course would be back to its old playable self within the next 6-8 weeks so I will definitely be looking to go back for another round to see how things are progressing... lots of potential to had!
