3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1929

Selsdon Park Hotel & Golf Club: In the grounds of the rambling, but ever-popular Selsdon Park Hotel, lies this quintessentially English parkland golf course. Laid out by the great J.H. Taylor in 1929, excellent use has been made of the undulating terrain, with plenty of mature trees, including sycamore, beech, oak, silver birch and cedar, providing good definition to the fairways.

Water hazards, too few to speak of, will not cause you any trouble, but the strategically placed bunkering demands good course management throughout. Accuracy rather than power hitting is the key to scoring well on one or two of the short par-4s, not least the 18th where good positioning is essential from the tee. There are enough other opportunities to get the big-timber out.

The well-paced and not overly sloping greens are maintained at a very satisfactory level, while general course maintenance is usually more than satisfactory, without being exceptional. Overall, Selsdon Park is excellent value, either as a Stay&Play venue or just for a day visit - a pleasant parkland course that attracts golfers from near and far.
