Guildford Golf Club on the Merrow Downs enjoys a wealth of history and tradition, home to one of the finest all-weather courses in the South of England. A private Members' Club, founded in 1886, Guildford is the oldest golf course in Surrey. Guildford Golf Club not only provides an attractive and varied setting for golf, but equally supports considerable ecological and landscape interest. Situated on the eastern perimeter of Guilford in the Surrey countryside, Guildford Golf Club supports a well-established 18-hole golf course, which forms an integral part of the regional golfing community. The Course is largely downland in character however does still retain a number of chalk heathland areas, which are the traditional habitats on the golf course. This type of landscape is slowly disappearing from our countryside, which in turn will reduce the diversity of plants and animals found on the course. Neglect, mis-management or over-management can reduce the value of these areas for wild life and it is therefore important that consideration is given to balancing the actual needs of golf with those of local indigenous wildlife.

You might be put off by the idea of playing a par 69 course, especially one that is less than 6,200 yards from the very back tees, but you would be wrong. Guildford is a tough, downs course. Tight in places, with difficult slopes on both fairways and greens. I was a member here as a young man and revisited in recently, thinking that I would find it easy with my golfing experience and much lower handicap, but I was wrong. I played it with 11 other golfers, some of them with low handicaps and the best score of the day was 34 points. Do not think that this is an easy course. My only note of warning is that the course is built on public land and so beware of dog walkers and hikers taking in the beautiful views.
