Pyrford Golf Club: Of the many new golf courses to be developed around London in the 1990s, Pyrford is definitely one of the most pleasing and challenging - especially if your game is affected by the presence of water. The holes here are well defined by landscaped mounding, small trees and bushes, good bunkering, and an abundance of water hazards. The greens can show some signs of wear and tear on this popular and heavily played course, but they are generally fast, with slopes that need some careful reading. It is a beautifully tranquil place here, next to a canal, with the prestigious (and very private) Wisley course on the canal’s other bank. For a good test of golf you will be just as well served on this side of the canal !
Visitors welcome on weekdays and after 11am on weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.

Running alongside Pyrford Golf Club is the River Wey Navigation (canal). Over 350 years ago, in 1653, the River Wey became the first British river to be successfully canalised for commercial traffic. The River Wey Navigation, combined with the younger Godalming Navigation which extended further southward, brought prosperity not only to the towns of Guildford and Godalming, but also this whole region of west Surrey and north Hampshire. The Wey Navigation runs from Town Bridge in the centre of Guildford up to the River Thames at Weybridge. On the other side of the Navigation canal is The Wisley Golf Club.

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar.
