Leatherhead Golf Club is a mature parkland golf course in Surrey which celebrated its centenary in 2003. The fairways are well guarded with magnificent ancient oak trees and the greens are regarded as being amongst the best in Surrey. This peaceful golf course provides an interesting test for all abilities of golfer. The back nine holes are shorter than the front nine but don’t let this put you off as course management is key to score well.
Just two miles from the town centre of Leatherhead, Surrey. 10 minutes from the A3
Hard to know where to start. My playing partner (single-figure handicap) knew the course from 12 years ago and when we saw the Tee Off Times special price of £17.00, we jumped at it. Clearly a once decent course is in a poor state - the worst greens I've ever played on. Spongy at best, irregular, covered in pitch marks and worm casts. The fairways were boggy - I know it's March, but it hasn't been wet for weeks. No definition between fairway and rough. Bunkers had been raked, but were lacking in sand. Crucially, there was no sign of anybody working on the course - this place is unloved and that's a shame. The hospitality was no better - we were greeted by one of the least welcoming and unhelpful people I've ever come across. The bar staff were more helpful although unsure as to whether there was a Spike Bar because they didn't know what one was! For information...there isn't one. We had to change before going back in to the clubhouse for a cup of tea...and I still can't quite believe this....we were offered a pot of tea which had been made "10 minutes ago, but they didn't want it". I doubt it was what we were looking for, so we left. All in all, not worth the very low price of £17.00.
