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.

Interesting course

Gatton is a mainly tree lined, countryside course with a variety of holes. Some of the holes give a risk and reward opportunity. All in all, a very pleasant but challenging course to play.

Worth a visit

Gatton is on the way back to its best with changes happening to both the course and club house. After neglect by previous owners the course is improving.

Great layout but disappointing condition

Really good challenging layout. Long but playable. Tees and fairways pretty good.

Greens poor though for late August and bunkers seem to have been abandoned (full of weeds!)

Needs some work putting into it! Wouldn’t rush back…

(Round played: Aug 2021, Handicap 8.3, score terrible!

Beautiful and challenging course

Lovely challenging course, the weather was horrific which meant the ball stopped where it landed on the greens, however the greens played very well considering the conditions. Will definitely be back when the sun's out.

Played yesterday and found an improvement on the course. There is a new course Manager and has only been there a week but we could see things are being worked on. Greens are getting much better and fairways had been well cut. Some of the rough has been cut down and it was a pleasure to play.

What a difference a couple of weeks make!!!
We last played Gatton Manor a couple of weeks ago and have to agree with some of the earlier reviews, it looked scruffy and unkept. When we played Saturday it was like a different course, no rough, tee boxes cut and tidy and bunker raked and weeded. The golf shop staff told us that they have a new course manager and a couple more green staff and it shows. The course is looking more like it was a few years ago. Well done Gatton Manor you've turned the corner for the better. We will definitely be back.

Course in poor condition - faded elegance

This may have been a championship standard course many moons ago. But not now. Played here a few years ago and standards have plummeted alarmingly! Tees with long grass, greens with poa annua (annual meadow grass) infestation. Bumpy greens in poor condition. Tine holes still visible with no top dressing to fill them in. Fairways with what appeared to be mole hills flattened down. Bacon bap before the round was in a very hard brioche bun. Oh and the coffee was out of a machine and luke warm. Not nice. However, the burger and chips after the game was very nice indeed.

Could be a very good course again if money is spent on it.
Tee boxes need cutting. Greens are in a terrible condition , like trying to putt on a beach.
You can see that given time and money, this would be a great course to play but not in its present state.

Course is in poor condition, greens very bumpy and tee boxes uneven and patchy, and 2 temporary tees in place, although this was an improvement as there were 18 temporary tees when I played around 1 month ago.

It's a course I enjoy playing but currently not worth the price they are charging.

Great course awful condition

I want to start this by saying I ran a society day here a couple of years ago & the course was brilliant a real challenge and great layout, the greens and fairways were brilliant. Yesterday I paid ?40 to play a course that was in awful condition the greens had work done on the 3rd of April (seen on previous review) and every green was bobbly it made putting a joke you would guess pace and line in the hope it would bounce the right way. Then to the fairways to be honest it was better to miss the fairway as more chance to have some grass under the ball, they were so patchy and it got worse on the back 9. I don't know the situation with covid but have played better cheap courses, they are also the only course I know/heard that hasn't got the course in playing condition within a few weeks and they have been open for near 6 weeks that's unacceptable.

Usually great but disappointed

A great course in very poor condition. Unfortunately the pandemic has had a profoundly negative effect and the greens have just been timed and are extremely bobbly. The fairways seem quite hacked and could do with some maintenance. I love this course but was upset that for ?35 it was in such poor condition after months without being used.

Boggy hellhole

£40 is expensive to play 1st nine twice off slippery tee mats. After a wet few days, ball plugged into greens and fairways, course should not be open in this condition. Feel ripped off.
