Hard to imagine a) why I am the first to review West Byfleet and b) why it’s ranked so low. In my view it is better than at least six courses listed above it in the Surrey rankings.
It was still work in progress when I played WB last year, but when the bunker renovation is complete I see no reason why this course should not be considered for a Surrey Top 20 position.
The pond-fronted one-shot 13th is every bit as good as Worplesdon’s 10th and Woking’s 16th. Built on pure Bagshot sand, the only thing missing is the heather that defines the aforementioned courses.
West Byfleet is underrated.
