I had the good fortune to play Woking and Tandridge on consecutive days recently. Woking is quite rightly top of the famous 3 W's and a strong benchmark but Tandridge is I feel, now a superior course. The extensive work which has been undertaken over the past few years really has taken the course to another level. The new bunkers in particular add a great defence to what is a relatively short course, especially off the yellows. Played off the tips however, Tandridge will test the best. The greens run fast and true, and many are of a size and undulation that there are no easy two putts. The bar is far more welcoming than in the past (many years back the club had a reputation for being stuffy) and food excellent. Add into the mix a terrific twilight rate (£38) and you have one of the best courses in the area. Very much worth a visit.
