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.

Nice course, congested at weekends.

Nice course.
I was due to play an 18 but decided early, along (along with 3 other groups waiting) that the four ball ahead were too slow and wrecking it for everybody. I guess that is Saturday afternoon golf for you but group behind me had no tee time and were just let straight on, so this explains why it was so congested. I was quite calm but there were a couple of lads back really losing it.
I enjoyed the course, some nice water holes and was already warned at check-in that the tees weren't the best, but they seemed ok.
I would come back and play an 18 here because the course was a challenge and in pretty good condition, but it would be early morning or midweek.

Poor

This place is in need of some TLC. The pro shop is like a tuck shop. The chipping practise area is an overgrown mess, that looks like someones back garden. There derelict buildings dotted about, all very weird. The tees are a muddy lumpy mess, the bunkers are all covered in weeds, you get the picture. For ?35 this is a very expensive joke of a course. However the bar and food were excellent.

Very short, and a little frustrating

When you have to tee off on a par 5 with a 4 iron because you?re going to run out of fairway it takes away a lot of the risk and reward.. overall in my opinion this was a crammed in 18 holes and although there were a couple of nice holes overall not for me

Many signature holes on this course

I'm a real fan of Gatton Manor. It's a parkland/woodland course with lots of memorable holes.
These challenge you to think, and are satisfying to play well. There are ponds, streams and ditches throughout the course, which need decent planning for a good result. The course is in the middle of nowhere so is incredibly peaceful. Greens were in good shape just after Covid lockdown, but some facilities were still understandably closed.

Great layout but in need of some TLC!

I've played Gatton Manor a number of times over the last 12 years or so. This was my first visit in about 4 or 5 years. It really is a great layout but this place needs some significant attention spent on it. I know that it has been through lockdown and may not have received as much attention as it should have but compared to other clubs, it is not in great shape. The tees are very poor and the greens are okay but inconsistent in pace. But the course just looks scabby in a lot of places. When I first played here the course was luxurious, now it is tired. I understand that it is under new ownership - they really need to invest some time and money to return it to it's former glory. It would be a real shame if it went to ruin.

Gatton manor is a hard course, if you don't play often, you need to be good of the tee, some tricky holes the 6th is the hardest, well looked after course but facilities have gone down hill...

A great challenge and layout
It has been in much better condition in the past eg tee boxes quite poor
It has suffered from a lack of maintenance possibly due the lack of rain and hot weather and the virus
Hope it recovers to former glory soon as a great course!!

1st 4 ball weekend after lock down

Busy busy busy!

No social distancing that I could see as there were bacon rolls / burgers available to but=t=y before / after the round.

Pace was slow, with a busy course and as far as I could see lots of 4-balls. Conditions were ok at best but to be fair, I don't know how much the green staff have been able to do.

The whole place just feels a little 'shabby', rough tee boxes, grass clippings everywhere, bumpy greens. It's a shame because the course itself is inheretantly good, just needs some TLC.

bunkers and greens need some work, but it has huge potential to be a top course again.

Not good!!

Course was very untidy as no maintenance had been carried out so grass cuttings all over the course making it hard to find a ball that had just rolled off the fairway!!. Tee boxes were a joke in some places. With a bit of maintenance and care it could be a really nice course. However give t a miss until it improves.
