Spent a cloudy winters morning at Tandridge. I must admit to being a little bit disappointed. Undoubtedly it's a fine track in the summer and one of the more pleasant parkland courses you could wish to find. However, for the cost I would have hoped to find it in better winter condition. Mats on all par 3's, very few teeing grounds - many temporary ones moved a long way forward, so it was difficult to view how it would normally play. Course layout was good, very good bunkering, excellent views and some wonderful changes in elevation - particularly the back nine. Clubhouse and overall welcome was friendly. Recommended if you're in the area, otherwise I'd say most could find something of similar rating without needing to travel.
