Back in 1998, when Foxhills first appeared on a ranking list, the club's two courses were called the Chertsey and the Longcross. We’ve played both courses on several occasions and we felt back then that the Bernard Hunt (nee Chertsey) course had the edge. In fact, Janet Melville won the Pretty Polly Women's British Open on the Chertsey course in 1978.

Fast-forward several decades and you'll find the Longcross billed as the premier layout at this impressive facility. You'll simply have to play them both and make up your own mind as to which you think is the better course.

Foxhills is marketed as “good enough to be mentioned as forming one point of a triangle of Surrey courses with Sunningdale and Wentworth”. Geographically this is indeed true, but Foxhills is not laid out on the sand belt, so don’t go to Ottershaw expecting to play golf on the heath. However, you can expect to play golf on a undulating and densely forested parcel of land.

The Bernard Hunt course is a stern test, measuring 6,883 yards from the back tees where the rolling topography creates both challenge and entertainment. The Longcross meanders through the forest and it’s no shorty either, measuring 6,743 yards from the tips.

Foxhills – named in Georgian times after one of England’s Foreign Secretaries – was the brainchild of the cousin of Victorian Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli. It remained a family home for more than a century before being transformed into a sporting and impressive club and resort.

Finally, a word about the Manor course... a fun 9-hole par three course, which is the perfect place to hone your short game. If it was good enough for 2006 World Match Play Champion Paul Casey to develop his short game skills as a junior, then it's good enough for us too.
