“An outstanding, testing course, that doesn’t take all day.” This is how Great Britain’s Rio Olympics Golf Captain, Jamie Spence, describes our beautiful 9-hole course.
Horne Park Golf offers a delightful course situated in the heart of Surrey countryside, just a short drive from the M23, the M25 and the A22. This ease of access, as well as our idyllic surrounds and full range of facilities, make Horne Park Golf Club a popular golfing destination in the region, even boasting visits from several top local professionals.
The fact that this is a 9-hole course does not deter anyone who has played it. Golfers can play the course their way, choosing between a round of 9 or 18 holes. Our booking system allows for a smooth continuation as you start your ‘second’ lap.
Spring 2006 saw the opening of our new set of tees for the back nine holes. The course was re-measured and now has a par of 69 with a standard scratch score of 66 from the white tees and 65 from the yellow. The addition of these new tees has proved a great success bringing a new dimension to the second nine and bringing the seven water features and the river more into play.
Horne Park Golf is a popular choice for golfers based at Gatwick and in the surrounding business areas. Playing golf without fatigue, in a relaxed and friendly environment, means that we have our regulars as well as a strong active group of 360 plus members, who take full advantage of our excellent facilities. Remember to book early; four days ahead is our system, to avoid any disappointment.
Our golf course has three par 5s, nine par 4s, and six par 3s. The course is meticulously cared for and our records show that even during Britain’s traditional inclement winters, the greens stand up well. Constructed to United States Golf Association specification, the greens are sand based, so you can rely on them throughout the year.
For the nine challenging holes, you may well need all the clubs in your bag. We have seven water features that help make the course both picturesque and eventful! From the 1st dogleg start, up the long 3rd 483-yard par 5, finishing by avoiding the lake on the 9th, Horne Park is a pleasure to play and an enjoyable experience. The first par 3 that you come to is the 4th. This 195-yard hole involves a short carry over one of our lakes to reach the green that is protected by three large bunkers either side. You will enjoy them all.
The landscaping of the course and its layout is deceptive. This is due to the intelligent and creative use of natural surroundings including water and trees. The gentle, undulating course benefits the less-able golfer, who will find it a good place to maintain their fitness and exercise without undue strain.
In the week, we are open to welcome you from 7.30am until dusk, at the weekend from 7am.
