A Tranquil And Supremely Presented Golf Course In Surrey
The golf course at Farnham Sands is a testing and supremely well-presented course with excellent greens, all set within the glorious Surrey countryside. It is a true classic amongst Surrey golf courses.
The course runs through a spectacular heathland site with stunning acid grasslands and beautiful expanses of heather.
The combination of tranquility and picturesque views around the course will ensure it becomes one of your favourite Surrey courses. By the 11th, the vista opens again with views over the countryside to the Hog’s Back.
The gentle undulations give variety but do not demand excessive effort. The course measures 6,613 yards, par 72 for the men off the championship tees, 6,268 yards from the yellow tees and 5,839 yards, also par 72, for the ladies.
It has a good mixture of testing par 3s and while the par 5s on any golf course are looked upon by the better players as offering the chance to pick up shots, it is worth noting that two of ours are rated amongst the three toughest holes on the course in terms of stroke index. Arguably the best holes, however, are the strong par 4s. Of these there are many, but to pick out just two: the scenic 12th from an elevated tee offers magnificent views of the surrounding area and the exhilarating golfing test that is the 17th would not be out of place on any championship course.
