When booking a tee time at Clandon Golf you can expect two very exciting loops of nine to await you. Despite its tender years the golf course has a number of manufactured mounds giving certain holes a real links golf course feel. The highlight of the golf course are holes 13, 14, 15 and 17 built beside and around a chalk quarry. The chalk has provided much of the contouring throughout the course thus ensuring that a green fee any time of the year is excellent value for money.
Clandon Golf is located close to Guildford town centre just off the A25 towards junction 9 of the M25.
Weather was fairly moderate: 20/25mph wind, very early start to be able to finish the 18th promptly. Started very well, very friendly staff - while there is no club house, nor pro shop just a caravan :) I was able to do the first 9th hole at good pace and enjoyed good course condition (it has rain the past 3 days), but then ... started the back 9 behind few groups that have started at 10 ... I wasn't able to move forward at acceptable pace (2 holes in 40 mins). Very frustrating I got to start at 13th hole. Really annoying.
This is a course with a great layout that has some challenging holes. A links like feel to it, that is just not kept in good nick. The majority of the course is ok with the fairways needing a cut, however the problem is with the greens. They are incredible long and actually play like a fringe at best. They are very bumpy and the ball bobbles a huge amount. They are the slowest greens I've played on and not in a good way. Even though the facilities are very basic, you wouldn't mind so much because the course is great other than the condition in particular the greens. This is the fourth time I've played it and I will give it one more shot because of the course but if there is not a vast improvement on the greens I will be force to strike if off my list of courses I play.
