St George’s Hill is one of the UK’s classic heathland courses. I have been fortunate to have played many of the best, and this one is right up there with them. I played the Red/Blue combo on 3 April. The first impression of the site as you drive through the course is opulence; the magnificent oligarch mansions, and the imposing clubhouse, which stands dramatically on a ridge in the centre of the course. It is such a pretty course, and in the height of summer must be absolutely stunning. There are no weak or filler holes; every one offers a different challenge and many of them would be signature holes on any good course. There are tee shots from raised tees over wide undulating fairways that can turn a good drive into a very long one if you hit the right slope. There is trademark Colt bunkering, and large sloping greens, many with false fronts which catch you out if you underclub. Six of the par 4’s are over 400 yards; and there are four lovely par 3’s, the 8th and 13th the pick. The clubhouse facilities were excellent, and the traditional three course lunch was superb. Harry Colt, you were a talented man.
One of Colt's best designs in my opinion. From the subtle undulations to the fantastic bunkering, St. George's Hill is one of Europe's finest golf courses. The clubhouse is stunning and has a air of exclusivity that many aspire to, the course has always been prepared immaculately when I have visited it and feel that it is a very fair test of golf with length not a prerequisite to score well. The greens can be very tricky and the heather is difficult but it is, in my opinion, one of the very best courses you will ever get to play.
Great place to play golf, there are holes to test all with a great half way house that serves Pimms and a course set over 3 lots of 9 holes. The greens are well kept and the sand is nice and loose. There is also a good spread of heather, rough and trees to make this a test. The question is are you prepared to part with 135 pounds a round. If you can afford it go along as you will not be disappointed.
Golfing nirvana. It is not easy to find,take a good look at the club website for directions,when you get there you will understand why. After you have passed through security and pass the huge houses right on top of the hill is the imposing clubhouse.It has a traditional feel,not much must have changed dramatically for years and the view is awesome,as was breakfast served amongst the monied FT reading classes. The course is up there heathland classic,maybe not too long but who cares it is brilliant,and you will have to be straight and on top of your game to score well,the greens of course are A1. One thing not to miss is the lunch,it is not nouvelle cusine,just proper traditional British fayre,you could sleep for a week after eating it.The experience comes at a price but if you compare this with some of the modern hyped up courses this sort of place wins hands down,for us mortals possibly a once a year or once a lieftime outing...however there were a few Premiership footballers there for whom it would have been loose change,but they new this is just class
Played here on the 11th April 2007. What a gem. The views and just the feel of the place is just fantastic. Although fairly short by modern standards, it is certainly very playable. I can reccomend a trip here. Will return next year.
I playing here in a Junior Girls Competition and loved it. the course and the estate are fantastic. Would love to join but live miles ago soo.. Would give this course a 10 out of 10.
A really well-kept traditional golf club. It is not that long but there is great variety in the design of the course and you will use most clubs in your bag. The pars 3 are amongst the best set in the UK. The course is always in good condition and there is some fairly decent carries required over heather from the tee. Value for money it rates much more highly than Wentworth and in terms of quality I think it is as good as Walton, Hankley, Swinley and Sunningdale. A must play.
I played here on Friday and I agree with previous comments that the course is lovely, but I would question the reference to it being better than other courses around. I have played all and St Georges Hill would not be my first choice. I played the Green 9 first and found that to be very uninspiring except for the 2nd which was a fearsomely difficult par 3. The afternoon was spent playing the Blue and Red courses which were much better and longer and were much more mature. There were good holes but all of my party agreed this is too short to be a Championship course and the rough was very forgiving so wayward drives were not punished (maybe its different in Summer). There was also not enough sand in the bunkers. On the positive side the greens were supurb being both fast and true and the ambience of the club and friendliness of the members and staff could not be faulted. All in all a good course set in idyllic surroundings (I defy you not to walk around the course saying " I want that house or that house" as you pass vast mansions)but if you want to spend this type of money there are much better courses e.g. Blackmoor, Walton Heath.
This course is simply fantastic! Played here for the first time this week and loved every minute from the drive up to the clubhouse, the wonderful way we were looked after on arrival to playing one of the best heathland courses ever. We were very lucky with the weather and all four of us enjoyed pretty good rounds. Great course, great service and great value for money. What more could you ask? Definitely will be going back there again.
One of the prettiest golf courses that you will ever play. Each hole is a colt classic and really is worth the green fees. It is as well maintained as the other sand belt courses but the surroundings I think take it up a level. The amazing clubhouses offers a warm welcome and the views from the locker room out over the blue and red course are fantastic.
Having played Wentworth,Sunningdale,Walton Heath ect.I would without reservation say that this is the finest course of this kind In England,the fairways and greens are a joy to play on,the views coming up the 9th with the red brick clubhouse in front of you is worth the green fee alone!Several long par 4,s and tricky par 3,s make this course no pushover and you can be faced with some near impossible putts if the flags are in difficult positions, played here 11th June and cannot wait to play this magnificent course again
I recently played here after a ten year gap and had forgotten just how good a course this is. I would rate it on a par with Sunningdale in terms of the quality of the layout. Sunningdale and the Berkshire have the edge in terms of tranquility and scenic appeal - each feels more remote while the houses on the estate make their presence felt at St George's Hill. Nevertheless, it is a superb course, with a lovely clubhouse and friendly people there too. Definitely worth a visit.
What can I say? Go and play Wentworth, and then play St.Georges Hill. I know which one I would return to and it wouldnt be Wentworth!!!!!
