ok not fanatstic

we played here Wednesday 19th September. Won a charity day and paid £60 for a 4 ball.
We played the New course. Fairways are till recovering from the summer and are very bare in places.
The greens were very slick and quick and you need to putt well to have a good score. It was a very windy day so some of the par 4`s into the wind were very long.
So the question is would I go back? NO. It was a bland course with no holes that really stood out at all. I would never pay £90 to play here or to buy 5 coffees and 5 bacon roles that was nearly £40.

Impressive

I played the old course as a guest of onegolfclub.co.uk, a beautifully laid out course fairly tight with bunkers everywhere! The greens were very tricky and in excellent condition and the majority two tiered. The wind really affected the course and I'd need to return to get the club selection right.

The clubhouse and practise facilities are wonderful, I'm looking forward to returning very soon.

One of my favourite courses....but!

First of all I cannot really complain, because this was a free event for winners of DGA tournaments. The journey awful around the M25 but I got there in time.
Burhill is a top top complex, we were playing New course which is near 7,000 yards of the Blacks!
Unfortunately Burhill had had 4 inches of rain early in the week, so it was wet under foot, in fact the course was in danger of being shut.
Anyhow they let us out there, I started off with two blobs, a ball trapped under a bunker lip did not help my mood.
Most of the bunkers were GUR which made attacking the greens easier.
The greens were slow but did run true.
The staff and club house are amazing at Burhill, the food is superb.
Normally a round here is £90, so I am a lucky boy getting it for free.

Elegant, stylish, challenging & a LOO at the 8th..........

Burhill Golf Club is set in 400 acres of tranquil Surrey parkland/woodland with a stunning Georgian Mansion Clubhouse (1726) with lots of history (Dick Turpin, George V, Barnes Wallis).

There are 2 courses, "The Old Course" designed by Willie Park in 1907 and "The New Course" ,a Simon Gidman design (2001) that takes the local river Mole into its features.

Today 7.03.2013, I had a lucky invite to join a mixed group from Silvermere (my present club). How could I refuse ? It proved a great opportunity for an excellent score, a Team win & 2 personal nearest the Pin on Par 3s.

We played "The Old Course", a great challenge for all levels, even though as you start you think it going to be fairly open and flattish, but it changes, & it gets more & more interesting. The fairways are very wel maintained and drain well. The paths leading to the next holes are of a "grey matter", a little bit like slate. NO mud anywhere.Easy wayfinding. The greens are very tricky indeed (apparently the trickiest ones in Surrey) with hidden slopes & ondulations, very sleek, very fast. Today 1 or 2 had standing water so we had to re-position the ball. The bunkers are numerous, deep, with rough edges to add to the challenge but with lovely soft sand.

From the 6th hole, the scenery changes, getting a little hilly, some heathland with heather & goarse. even deeper bunkers, tiered greens. Then we have donwhill, some tighter fairways, some sloping. & tight dog legs and always beautiful mature trees around.

The 5th & 9th involve playing over the road that lead to the elegant Clubhouse, but all well signposted.

The scenery even on a drizzly, grey winter is beautiful. It is vast & tranquil. Some beautiful properties scattered on the edge of the course and amongst them: King George V house & Dick Turpin cottage.

No water elements apart from 2 ditches across some fairways. All the water features are on the new course.

Favourite holes (my trademark):

6th, Par 3: tte shot over heathland/thick goarse, tiered green heavily guarded by 6 bunkers. Very attractive hole.

7th, Par 4, dog leg left, heather/goarse on either side of the teeing area, tight approach to the green.

11th Par 4, the most picturesque hole, elevated tee, guiding post & sloping fairway.

12th, Par 2, particulary interesting green, sort of sunken as it is set in a hollow which can affect judging the distance to the pin.

Must mention the LOO by the 8th, not often that one can stop in comfort.

Grandeur & charm in the Clubhouse, a warm welcome, several bars/lounges, a large dining area overlooking "The New Course" & its water features. A big terrace on the South/West side. Large selection of food at very reasonable prices. Excellent coffee.

Ladies changing rooms: truly moderm & smart & inviting with all the best fittings, very spacious too.

Excellent Pro shop, very welcoming/friendly, lots of smart clothing (caters for Ladies as well!!), excellent stock of golf clubs, bags, trolleys etc...

A neat private road leading to the huge, well laid out car park. Easy access from M25 J10, the A3 & Heathrow.

Did not visit the practice facilites but they are present and very good I have been told.

A lovely place for a golf day, I would like to play "The New Course" in the Summer and spend a few hours on the terrace enjoying the views, the grandeur & tranqility of the place.

Although not far from my home, the Membership is out of my reach, so will only play there on special occasions but it well worth it.



THE END.......

Undiscovered gem

Two excellent courses and an impressive clubhouse make an elegant venue. We played the New course: longer, slightly more open than the Old and pretty challenging in the strong wind, with careful club selection required on all tees and good greens to finish.
