Nestled in 250 acres of beautiful countryside Merrist Wood Golf Club is renowned as one of the bestGolf Courselayouts in Surrey.

In WWII, a Halifax Bomber on its first operational sortie (referred to as a Nursery Raid),was mistakenly shot downby an RAF night fighter.

There is a memorial on the course tocommemorate the downed aircraft and crew, where a wreath is traditionally laid every year on Remembrance Day.
