This is a decent course, but nothing special. It was £25 for a visitor on a weekday so there are probably better deals around - the tees and greens were very good but some holes were a bit scruffy and the bunkers were full of stones. That said , there are a good mix of pretty challenging and narrow holes and with leaves on the trees and on a better day weather wise, I am sure that the overall impression would be better.
Things have changed from the last review i read, so i felt compelled to write this one. The course is still as challenging. However the bunkers are being re done. There are new winter mats that have been put down which must have cost a fortune they look like real grass and are ace to tea off from. There are new ball washers and lips in the cups. The Club house has also started to do a Sunday carvery dinner with a choice of 3 meats, with home cooked yorkshire puddings which are to die for . woh. Alot of the drainage of the course is also being sorted out , so things are looking very bright for the spring at purley
Played in the junior open this year. The course is brilliantly designed with a great variety of holes and awesome par 3s. However it was very badly kept. The greens were good but the fairways tees and bunkers were below average. However i did play when it was quite wet. All in all a great course that is an exciting challenge just a shame it wasn't in better nick when i played it.
