Summary:

Part of the Crown Golf group (32 golf courses) Merrist Wood has been awared silver prize in the Golf Monthly 2007 HSBC regional course rankings Plus Merrist Wood was chosen as the host venue to launch the Senior Professional Golf Tour in
the UK.
Having all the facilities you would expect from a quality club the course is laid out in nearly 250 acres, keeping the holes well spaced so that even on a busy day it can feel like you are out there on your own.
Our high quality greens are constructed and maintained to USGA specification. The course designer, David Williams, has created a golf course that will reward golfers of all standards.


At nearly 7,000 yards the course is one of the longest in Surrey. When played from our championship tees it offers a real challenge to golfers of any standard. There are forward tees on all holes but with the white tees at 6,600 and yellow tees at 6,300 it still offers a challenge for any player to play to their handicap.
The holes offer a great deal of variety. Water comes into play on 5 of the holes and strategically placed bunkers can catch wayward shots so there is a premium on keeping the ball straight on this testing golf course.

Facilities:

Changing rooms; Club, buggy & trolley hire; Professional shop; Driving range, chipping area and putting green; Bar and full catering facilities.

Good course, quite tough for a novice with plenty of bunkers and also gulleys (mainly water traps) running across quite a few of the fairways. Best point was that all holes are different, no 'back and forth', and good to see maintenance being carried out on a number of holes as we were going round. Only stayed for a quick drink afterwards, but no complaints about the clubhouse from what I saw ... nice-looking, clean and tidy. Standard weekday round £33, weekends £40. Would recommend to any that haven't already tried it.

My opinion of this course is very much the same as it was in Sep09. Excellent layout, greens, tees and bunkers in very good nick but the fairways are TERRIBLE - preferred lies need to be a permanent feature really. Despite this it does remain one of my preferred Crown courses.

A very nice course with some interesting holes. Fairways good. Bunkers/sand good. Greens good - not as fast as I was expecting! Well worth playing.

Agree with Rodger. This course has fantastic potential, only let down by the condition of the fairways. Other than that, would definitely recommend.
