What the club says: Less than an hour from London you will find Surrey Downs Golf Club, set in the rolling Surrey Hills with spectacular views across The Downs. Peter Alliss was commissioned to design the course in keeping with the surroundings and he has produced a down land golf course which enhances the natural beauty of the hills.

The golf course is maintained to a very high standard with the greens being to USGA Specification. The downland setting normally provides a breeze which adds an alternative aspect to the challenging but very scenic rough with a particular feature being our large shared 9th and 18th green which is well protected by a large pond coming into play on both holes.

The course is challenging for golfers of all abilities with interestingly designed holes which require thought on course strategy over sheer length of hit and with this in mind it is a hugely enjoyable course which rewards good play.

Great course worth a visit

First time playing here & was very impressed. The greens were lush green, cut short so very fast. Undulating greens so it requires you to think about your putts a lot. Bunkers were a bit disappointing. Compacted sand & lots of stones/gravel. No signs to show the way to the 10th hole either. Staff were very nice & friendly.

Very Good as always!

Peak of summer so the wispy rough is seriously in play if you are off-line with your driving. Some excellent holes on here with some severe dog legs to take account of - beware the 6th and 8th for example. Wonderful sweeping Par 5 13th so enjoy that one!
Greens were very good, firm and pacey - and with undulations and contours to test your putting skills to the max let alone your approach play. Will look forward to playing again late summer/early autumn when conditions will be different and hopefully the excellent club house is open again! Roll on those times...

Surrey Downs in the Rain!

Great to see the course in such a good condition of after 15 years since I last played here.
Staff very welcoming even in such strange times.

Greens were good but the rain did slow them down a little but still in great condition.
Signage to the 10th was a little lacking but that was probably me not seeing it.

Still a good course with quite a few dog-legs to make you plan your way around the course.
Definitely coming back in better weather.

Decent little knock

A steady little course which can be quite demanding in places. Greens in great condition. pace of play was great with no hold ups at all. Bit hilly in places but that adds to the club selection when teeing off. Will definately play again.

Lovely course !

I had never played 'Surrey Downs' previously but when the opportunity came along on a dry, bright November afternooon, I took the chance.

Quite an open course and undulating as you would expect - this gave some great views. Some conditions underfoot were a little wet but, bearing in mind all the rain in the last month, it played well. The greens were excellent. and the sand in the bunkers nice and fluffy.

The course was not very busy and I was joined by a friendly member (Richard) from hole 9, which was very pleasant. This was handy as some of the holes are quite severe doglegs or require blind shots to the green.

Richard kept saying I should return in the summer, when the course will be better and I will certainly take his advice !

Impressed

As a professional turf manager I can judge the condition of a course with two hats on.Given the incredible amount of rain this part of the world has received in recent weeks I was impressed with all aspects of the course. The greens, with a couple of exceptions were true and at a stimp speed I would expect at this time of year. The fairways were drier than I was expecting and had very good grass coverage as were the tees with again a couple of exceptions.
The rough was extremely punishing and very close to the fairways in places but that isn't necessarily a criticism. The only aspect of the course which was poor were the bunkers. Even given the wet conditions there was very little sand in places and that that was present was stony and a nightmare to play out of.
Pretty flat with some really challenging holes and some beautiful views to distract you from the gold if you aren't playing well.
I was lucky to be a guest of a member who knew the course lay out. There are a couple of places where signs pointing to the next tee should be in place.
My first time and I will definitely return given the opportunity.

Course needs some work

We’d had a fair bit of rain in the days proceeding our visit, but the course was disappointing regardless. Greens had been heavily sanded and some hollow tined. Tee boxes weren’t in the greatest of shape either, and the bunkers were a joke. Barely a grain of sand in them, just a sprinkling with compacted mud underneath. Pace of play from the members 4 ball in front of us was horrendously slow. Some tough long rough ensured the course wasn’t too easy, which was good, but I wouldn’t be in a hurry to play it again

Extremely heavy rough

Not an easy course when the rough is so thick. You will be punished for average shots that are slightly off the fairway because your ball will be difficult to locate and you may take 2 (sometimes 3) shots to come out of the rough. Too many blind approaches with such a difficult rough makes this course not the most enjoyable.
