The Course

Guildford Golf Club is a traditional downland course sited on Merrow Downs. The views from the course are exceptional and include Guildford Cathedral (from the 18th and the practice ground), the Wembley Arch (from the 6th hole), the Post Office Tower (the 4th), aeroplanes taking off and landing at Heathrow (the 3rd) and panoramic views of the Surrey countryside throughout.

Based on chalk, the course is the best draining golf course in the area making winter golf as enjoyable as it is in the summer. Whilst other courses may become boggy, Guildford does not and we seldom use temporary greens

The par-69 course itself is a gem. Don’t let the yardage of 6160 yards, relatively short in terms of championship golf courses fool you. It is no easy option, as was proven by 2007’s Pro-Am event where only one of the professional golfers was under par with a winning score of 70. A number of our challenging par 4s play much longer than they appear on the score card (the 1st, 6th, 10th, 14th and 17th for example), with uphill approaches to greens and wind adding significant distance to the holes.

The par 3s are a significant test. Whilst the 2nd is a friendly 126 yard hole, ideal for nearest the pin contests, make the most of it as the remaining four par 3s are a tougher proposition altogether. The 7th at 215 yards and the 13th at 200 yards have a distinctly “links-like” feel; whilst the 11th can be open to all the elements, so golfers should be wary of wind direction and strength.

Two special holes are the 8th and 15th. The 8th at 555 yards plays shorter than its yardage, courtesy of being downhill and its views coming around the dog leg are wonderful. The 15th or “crater hole” presents a daunting tee shot before golfers encounter lovely views of Woking and beyond from the fairway.

The Greens

Guildford’s greens are fast! Head Greenkeeper Matt Lawrence and his team have created some of the best and slickest greens in the county. Three of the greens are tiered (the 1st, 6th and 17th), whilst many more have significant and testing borrows where line and length have to be spot on.

To help golfers with the location of the pin position on each green we use different coloured flags.

Red flag: the pin position is towards the front of the green.

Yellow flag: the pin position is in the centre of the green.

White flag: the pin position is towards the back of the green.

Choose your club wisely!

Distance Markers

On each of the par 4s and 5s yellow disks can be found in the middle of the fairways. These are positioned 150 yards from the centre of the green. In addition distance cards can be purchased in the Pro Shop.

The Clubhouse and its facilities

Originally built in 1901, the Clubhouse has undergone a major extension and refurbishment and was officially opened by Peter Alliss in December 1998. The character of the original Victorian building was preserved while providing additional areas and modern facilities.

The Lounge Bar

The Lounge Bar adjoins the restaurant and offers an extensive bar menu and daily specials in comfortable surroundings. A south-facing terrace overlooks the downs, the practice green and the 18th hole. The terrace provides an exceptionally tranquil setting for socialising in the summer after a round of golf or for a glass of Pimms in the evening.

The Dining Room/ Restaurant

The dining room is able to seat up to 100 covers and offers views of the 18th green. We can cater for groups up to 140 for buffet style meals. We also offer hog roasts and bbqs in the summer month.

Should you require a location to hold presentations for up to 120 people the dining room can be set up for such an event with a theatre-style seating plan.

The Gallery Bar

The Gallery Bar is above the restaurant and is an ideal facility for corporate events, business meetings or private parties. It is separate from other areas of the club and has it's own toilet facilities. The adjoining balcony overlooks the 18th green and Merrow Downs. The Gallery Bar is equipped for conferences with wide screen TV showing all satellite channels.

The 19th Spikes Bar

The 19th is the ideal place to relax after your round of golf while enjoying a drink and a bite to eat.
