Kent and Surrey are two counties that I grew up learning the game of golf, I feel blessed that I was able to experience the many varieties that Surrey has to offer from both parkland and heathland designed by some of the world’s best course designers including Harry Colt, James Braid, Willie Park Jr and Herbert Fowler to name but a few and over the last 20 years new courses with their manicured fairways and USGA regulated greens. Courses steeped in history and those just starting out on their journey will no doubt make their mark over the coming decades.
Surrey is one of the premier counties when it comes to English golf with more golf courses in the Top 100 than any other county and has 120 golf clubs affiliated to the Surrey Golf Union. Like Kent, Surrey golf courses are within easy reach from central London most golf courses being about an hour’s drive or train ride from central London and most are accessible to the visiting golfer who wants to see the sights of London with their family, but not miss out on being able to play some of the county’s best courses or one of the many hidden gems that Surrey has to offer.
This section will grow as I start to play, video and review old favourites along with the many new courses that have emerged over the last 20 years.
