The Oaks Golf Centre

The Oaks Golf Centre, near Banstead in Surrey, comprises the 18-hole Oaks course, the 9-hole Acorns course, driving range, golf shop, bar and restaurant. A large car park leads into this well-appointed facility and a welcoming cafe/bar.

This course has become known in winter for its ability to drain away copious amounts of rain and therefore remain firm and playable when other courses become a bog. A very important feature these days!

The 18-hole course is some 5700 yards off the yellows and around 6000 off the whites and begins with a par 3 of about 160 yards. No driving holes are particularly tight so you will feel free to give the course a bit of a go.

We particularly like the par three 12th, which is 180/200 yards across a bit of a valley but with plenty of width  to bale out if it goes a little awry. A nice looking hole.

We understand the drainage and watering of the greens has also improved a lot and the greens run very nicely for us when we've played there.

So all in all quite a comprehensive facility with the driving range and a reasonable golf store which had some decent offers when we were there.

  • Good all-weather course
  • Nice combination of facilities and clubhouse
