I recently stayed locally to Gatton Manor on a golfing break and decided this would be one of the golf courses we would play, We booked the round for 8 people using 2 fore 1 vouchers. When we arrived we were early so had drinks in the bar and found staff friendly and helpful. We were then charged £20 each for the golf whilst using the 2 fore 1 vouchers which did seem pretty expensive!!! We went for a practice putt but was unable to as the putting greens were being hallowtyned and were covered in sand as were all the other greens on the course. Why were we not told about this when we booked a week prior. Surley this work is booked well in advance??? The course itself is a nice track however i found the stroke indexs were very strange i.e hole 4 stroke index 7 139 yard par 3 with small amount of water in front of the green relativley easy, then hole 16 412 yard par 4 stroke index 14??? When returning to the very small pro shop to return trolleys we hired we found the pro on the phone and ignoreing us until we had finished. All in all a very dissappointing day. Take my advice and play Chartham Park just up the road for £12.50 with the 2 fore 1 vouchers, excellent value and top notch staff and course condition.
