Gatton Manor Hotel & Golf Club is now under new ownership, so we’re hoping to see the parkland course that Sir Henry Cotton designed in 1969 flourish once more. Who could forget the finishing hole which is one of the best in the region?

Shame, used to be good. Nice setting with a good variation of holes but now this is a course with zero maintenance and many poor to unplayable tee boxes. Its simply just been left.

Should no longer be on this list.

It’s sad to hear about Gatton Manor’s conditioning issues. Let’s hope the club can turn their maintenance issues round before we next revise our Surrey Best In County rankings.

Kevin, for your information, our ranking cycle is biennial. Our Surrey rankings were last published in November 2019, therefore the county running order will remain as is until November 2021.

Played Gatton manor this weekend just gone. paid £40 for the pleasure. Tees were in awful condition, many bunkers were GUR as were many areas on the greens. lots of bare baked mud patches evident.

Green were surprisingly good, but rest of course was very poor in condition.

18th green complex is interesting to say the least!

Like previous reviewer mentioned, this course is fine if you want a group game on a weekend, as easy to book tee times. But don't expect a great course in good condition.

A decent quality and value pay and play course, good for societies and corporate groups (hence can be busy) in very pretty countryside.

Some nice mature trees, the garden and rockery can come into play on the last, and the elevated loop that comprises the bulk of the back nine has some nice holes with drop offs if off line. A reasonable choice if in a larger group, or looking for a game at the weekend when members' courses in the area tend to be hard to get on.

A perfectly fine course for a nice round, but nothing to get too excited about really until the 18th hole, a short extremely pretty par 4 where a birdie as well as a double/triple is easily scored. Great to conclude a tight match.

I wouldn’t go out of my way to play here, but if invited or are staying nearby then it’s a nice way to spend a few hours. A typical parkland course, condition was pretty good although it can get quite busy at weekends as it’s a club very welcoming to visitors.
