The back 9 is now open and what a course this now is! This is easily the best value pay and play course in the area. They claim it is of the same standard as many of the best private clubs in Surrey and they definitely have every right to. The back 9 is probably harder than the front with a great big quarry coming into play on several of the holes. Choose a nice sunny day and the views across the surrounding countryside wont disappoint either!

Awesome Views

I have played here a few times and it is a very good course, there isn't a clubhouse but I do not visit new places to see how good the clubhouse is! there aren't any practice facilities but the staff are very friendly and you can order coffee, bacon rolls and they have a selection of snacks and cold drinks too. the course isn't long although it has some tough holes and keeping it in play is the key here as the rough (like a cabbage patch) is very unforgiving. The greens are true if a tad slow. wonderful views from a lot of the holes, well worth a visit.

Appalling greens and shabby tee's threaten to ruin what should be a challenging and interesting golf
course. Yet somehow clandon retains an element of enjoyment; lovely views, interesting layouts and a solid test for most us playing with a handicap of 15 and above. But like many school a report you feel 'could do better'. With a little tlc this could become a very good golf course but the owners 'must try harder' and resolve what are pretty basic issues.

Fantastic up and down track with many interesting and attractive holes that make good use of natural landscape around a hilltop. It is very exposed to the wind, which makes the course considerably tougher when it blows. The views are spectacular throughout the round, overlooking the South Downs.

The greens and fairways are rock hard at present, which is difficult to understand given the soaking winter and spring that have just passed. This makes it very difficult to hit even wedges and short irons into greens as they invariably bounce straight off the back. Take one less club on approach shots.

Each hole feels distinctive and poses a different challenge. We played off the white tees, which gives several long par 3s around 190 yards and par 5s between 560-600. 13,14, 15 is a great loop that criss crosses a chalk quarry, all great holes that wouldn't be out of place on a championship course. As mentioned above there are many attractive, well-designed holes throughout the round, which made it so disappointing that the greens, surrounds and tee boxes were in such poor nick.

Unfortunately greens are in a state, suffering from sort of moss and almost every one appearing baked out, suffering cracks and holes. Putting was a total lottery and this really reduced the quality of the round, which otherwise would have been superb. The tee boxes didn't appear to have been mowed for a few days and tufts of grass sprouting all over.

Great for a practice round, not for a comp. Will definitely go back to visit next Summer and hope that the greens have been sorted out as this will be a great course if so. Staff very friendly, good bacon rolls.

Very open course on the front 9, which tightens up for 4 or so holes on the back around the 13th when the quarry starts to make an appearance. Nice views of London on a couple of holes, if you like that sort of thing.

The greens weren't the best I've played on, but i think that the time of year had something to do with that. They were very firm though, which was amazing given the rain the previous night. I would imagine that this course is playable for pretty much all of the year.

Only a portakabin for a clubhouse currently, so don't expect to sit down for a drink afterwards.

I got a deal on the price which made it a bit of a bargain, but I am not sure it is worth the cost of the normal green fees.

An absolute must play. Back nine around the old quarry is superb. Lovely views of the Surrey Hills throughout. Don't be put-off by the Portacabin clubhouse. Best pay/play in the area.

Lovely day for golf

It was a lovely day for golf, light winds and blue skies for a lunch time tee off. The greens were a bit damp in places as were some of the fairway that were in the shade, but overall the course played well . The course had been busy in the morning and a lot of the bunkers had not been raked and pitch marks repaired.

Very good course

Because of it's geographical situation, and the fact that the course is over chalk, Clandon obviously drains well. The course on 19th had only two very small squelchy patches, both easily avoided, and this at the start of winter compared to some other courses which, in my opinion, are no more than quagmires (in golfing terms anyway). The ground is therefore practically dry at any time of the year. It's a good testing course (5660 yds), especially with the quarry to get over on the 15th. The reason for 'Fair' below against 'Club & Facilities' is that Clandon only has portakabin facilities, but even that is run well and certainly doesn't affect one's enjoyment of the round.

Good draining course

Great views from the course and definitely some challenging holes particularly around the quarry 13,14 & 15, greens have markedly improved since last time I played here (6 weeks ago) although there are still a couple needs some work.

challenging par 69

basic course with some challenging holes with right to left and left to right par 5's. Greens average to poor. Fairways need mowing but lack of rain may justify leaving grass long.
Portacabin club house with no practise facilities. However, costs are below average

A challenging course, particularly through the back nine, but great fun and a lovely area to play with some nice views. It's not the best kept in terms of fairway and green quality but somehow it doesn't seem to matter. Good value.
