    Our society and boys summer tour society (12 x handicaps between 2 to 18) have played most courses around the South East aswell as loads of course abroad....Majorca this year had some of the best courses I`ve ever played on.
    I`ve gotta say we`ve played all the loops at Wildwood in different formats 5 or 6 times now. This year we`ve played there 3 times , the best format for us being A and C and we all think Wildwood was in great condition.
    Only complaint is that its a bit pricey and think £25.00 at weekends is more palatable than the £60.00 being charged unless you have a 2 for 1 card.

    I'm sure the Charity events are warmly welcomed and I hope that you again do well in raising money for a worthy Charity.
    My comments were not swayed by my state of play (37 points off a 12 handicap around loops A and C). I agree with the ladies comments in that the course was well into its Spring growth and it being lush........like a farmers field!!!!
    We played Tilgate Forest last weekend for £20.........a mere £25 less than Wildwood. Now if you want a proper course that is well layed out, warm welcome, good food/drink (Im sure they do Eggs Benedict), a stocked pro-shop, properly mowed greens/fairways, stoneless bunkers and as good a test as Wentworth then head off to Crawley for the day and I'm sure you'll be going back many more times than to the rip off that is Wildwood.

    I did not submit the review simply as a result of a poor score on the day. That would defeat the object of allowing independent reviews to be submitted. I cannot retract the fact that I was most disappointed with the condition of the course. I can only compare the course with the numerous other courses I have played in the southeast using course condition, course design and value for money as the main basis of my comparison. I apologise if I have caused any offence to individuals as this was not my intent.

    I am deeply offended by the derogatory remarks made in some of these reviews. I have an annual charity event at Wildwood and they have helped to raise thousands of pounds for The Gift of Life Charity. Myself and our management team have made numerous visits to the venue and have never recieved anything but first class hospitality and facilities. This summer we will be returning with around 150 players who I guarantee will have a fantastic day on a great and challenging golf course as they did last year. I suggest that the poor reviews have come from people who have not played particularly well on the day they visited and have vented their frustration on the course. I am looking forward to playing the new holes as I'm sure they will be as good if not better than the existing holes.

    Having read the reviews posted on 5th april I was apprehensive of playing Wildwood but was pleasantly suprised on the day we played(7/4/04). I am shocked that we are talking about the same golfing venue. The reception we recieved from the staff on arrival was warm and welcoming. Eggs Benedict for breakfast was a perfect start to the day. Course A is a mature Parkland course that is green and lush with fresh spring growth, the greens in particular are worthy of praise. Course B was our second 9 and include 7 new holes and 2 old ones. The new holes are indeed a good test of a golfers skill, indeed i think i used every club in my bag over the 18 holes. Lunch was sublime, braised lamb shank (hats off to the chefs)Overall my friends and I would not hesitate to return to such a nice course in such pleasant Surrey countryside. We look forward to Playing Course C and the Par 3 course looks interesting too.

    Just got back from playing this overhyped course in darkest Surrey. Ok, it is April and most courses are still recovering from the winter weather, but that is still no excuse for what was found here.
    Ok, a number of the holes are well designed, well though out and allow you to use most of the clubs in your bag, but some are just stupid in design - the average golfer either has to accept that he will gain at least a bogie on these holes or have to go on a course of steroids before he plays!!!
    Condition wise it was terrible. mud everywhere, fairway grass longer than the rough, flooded bunkers.......the only good areas were the greens which were in excellent condition.
    Around the course a number of new holes are being built - suggestion to the course committee - get your existing holes right first before you expand even further.
    I could go on further about the pro shop, rules on spikes, green fees, etc. but I can't be bothered as I won't be returning again.

    This is one of the most disappointing courses I have ever played. A round here is reminiscent to playing in a cows field (and a very muddy wet one at that) with an overuse of water hazards. The fairway is indistinguishable to the rough and in some places is a couple of inches long, while in others there is just large expanses of soft mud. The new par fives show a lack of design imagination as does the course in general. I have played much better courses for much less expensive green fees.

    I played the course yesterday and was extremely disappointed. Luckily we had 2 for 1 vouchers as otherwise the green fees would have been £45! The fairways are like fields and some were so bare that it was just mud coming through. I appreciate it is only April but it really was bad! Some excellent holes in fairness but some were ridiculous and designed with no imagination. Some par 4's you couldnt hit a driver as there was a ditch 250 yards up and if you laid up, the green was still some 250 yards away and not reachable. Also two new par 5's which are equally as pathetic. Overall, a course which needs to employ a green keeper soon and re think their green fees. I wouldnt pay £10 to play this again.

    We are a Golf Society who raise money for a local paraplegic athlete called Simon Cook with ambition to go to the Sydney Paralympics in the year 2000. Wildwood golf club have helped us two years running now by allowing us to use 2 for 1 vouchers on our day out there and supplying Simon with a free buggy. This consequently allows us to raise more money for Simon. It has extremely friendly and helpful staff.
    Most of the society (approx 20 people) have handicaps between 18 and 28. The course has 16 lakes which come into play on 15 of the holes. Being clay based , it can get a bit boggy throughout the winter. It has splendid views if the North Downs. Stand on the first tee and you need to carry about 100 yards across a lake. Sounds easy but psychological games play on your mind. The ninth is stroke index 1 but the 16th is harder. It is called Davy Jones' locker and I have experienced many watery graves on this hole. You need to be above average to get on the green in two on this one.
