Effingham’s classic, Colt-designed, 6800 yard course is set in 264 acres of picturesque, rolling chalk downs – and at up to 500 feet above sea level it has stunning views both north-west to the Chilterns some 40 miles away and sweeping northwards to the panorama of the dramatic London skyline.
The course is noted for the fine condition in which it can be found throughout the year. And its chalk subsoil ensures that course closures, and even temporary greens, are almost unheard of, regardless of rainfall levels.
The course comprises two well separated loops of nine holes – so balls from one fairway rarely find their way to another.
The new 18th hole was designed by leading course architects Mackenzie and Ebert and constructed by M.J. Abbott. It was opened on Monday 6th May 2013.
The same team was responsible for the lovely new 5th green, which opened on the same day.
At 6597 yards of the white tees the course was already one of the longest in Surrey, but the recently added seven new black tees have extended it to 6800 yards.
In addition to our existing practice facilities Effingham has one of the best short game practice areas in the south-east.
