‘Don’t play too much golf. Two rounds a day is plenty.’ Harry Vardon

 

The Drift Golf Club – Golf Course


The well designed course layout is enhanced by an array of wildlife, attractive water features and an abundance of flora and fauna making it one of the most picturesque courses in Surrey.

Cleverly laid out, there are four starting and finishing points right by the Clubhouse, creating four loops of four or five holes which is ideal for summer evening practice for Club members with some time for twilight practice.

A stiff test awaits you on the opening hole. 444 yards from the competition tee this Par 4 really sets out the challenge to come. At the Par 3 third hole accuracy into a narrow green is premium, but a good birdie opportunity then awaits at the short par 4 fourth.

The next few holes will offer birdie opportunities to the brave on the par 5’s at five and eight.

As the front nine comes to an end, many will feel that the ninth offers the easiest opportunity to reduce their score. However, beware – although only 246 yards long, this short par 4’s green is very difficult to read and place the ball close to the hole. Water is a challenge on the course too, especially at the par five tenth where three good shots are required to reach the green.

Bordering the fairways, Rhododendrons await erratic shots over the next few holes and accurate tee shots are required particularly at the 12th, 14th and 15th to offer up short approach shots. Standing on the tee at the uphill 17th, a pair of pars to finish would be snapped up by most.

The par 5 18th gives the welcoming view of the clubhouse in the distance where you can reflect all the good shots that have made your day at the Drift. There are further superlatives to describe the other holes, but the better bet would be to play them yourself.

The course is reserved exclusively on weekend mornings for 7 day members and their lucky guests, but there is plenty of available time midweek and weekend afternoons for non-members to enjoy the fine course.
