Course Details

Course Name: Guildford Holes: 18 Yardage: 6090 SSS: 70
Challenging course built on high ground with scenic views of the Surrey countryside. The topology of the course means that wind and slopes predominate which tests one's confidence and ability to read the course. Well positioned bunkers, tiered and sloping greens, elevated tees, some doglegs and trees characterise the course. On the 15th one must play 190 yards over a quarry. Genuinely a good test of golf for golfers of all handicaps.

    Comments: £35 a steep for that course. Seen better fairways and greens. Members very unfriendly, no smiles or acknowledgements. Also, two couples in front refused to let me through; in the end I missed 4 holes (6-9, hit the ball about 230yrds straight down on the 6th, then waited some 8 minutes before giving up). Another point was that while I was putting for a birdie on the 17th, members would not stop and would continue walking in front of me (managed to hole it anyway). Nice setting though, but nothing special. No one hole made me think about what and how to play. Will not return (I only went because it was highlighted by the AA Golf club guide and I was on the area for a training course).

    The quarry hole! You are required to play over a quarry which is about 190 yards in length. After that, there are some killer trees on the right and if you hit it over there, don't bother looking for it because you either won't find it or have a horrible shot. It is downhill after the quarry so you can chase an iron down to the green which is surprisingly quite flat.

    This hole plays longer than 177 yards because it is uphill all the way. Aim at the tree in the left and you should be quite safe. There are a couple of bunkers by the green so the aim is to be careful. The green is another 2-tier and is quite long. You need to be an accurate putter.

    We've had alot of complaints from people who have played Guildford that this hole should be stroke index 1 or 2. It certainly is difficult. You play downhill from an elevated tee to quite a wide fairway. You then have to play uphill to a tight 2-tier green and avoid the bunkers. You have to play it to believe it.

    Quite an easy way to finish your round. The drive is the most difficult because you play back over the 17th fairway and round to the right slightly, being careful to avoid the trees. You then have out of bounds all down the left and at the back of the green. You can play your second shot to the green and hole out with reasonable ease.
