Cranleigh Golf Course
Previously known as Fernfell Golf Club, Cranleigh Golf & Country Club is a par-68, parkland course, which measures 5,644 yards and also boasts a newly-refurbished driving range.
A challenging, yet playable golf course, starts with a picturesque par three and features many tree-lined fairways as the round unfolds.
Many of the holes require precise driving accuracy, considered strategy and shrewd course management.
The quick greens will present a stern test of putting skills while the beauty of the surrounding Surrey Hills is a constant feature of the course.
With good drainage during the winter, the course remains in excellent condition all year.
GOLF COURSE HOLE BY HOLE
GOLF PRO’S TIPS
The first hole is a beautiful, downhill par three over a water hazard into a well-guarded green. There are two 6ft-deep bunkers at the front of the green, which can easily pull your ball in. In the spring, Bluebells blossom on the hill behind the green, along with the white sand at the front of the green they seem to frame what is already a very pretty hole.
Top Tip: Go long or don’t be afraid to lay up. There’s not much trouble over the back of the green. But if you are not a long hitter, lay up. It’s much better to be on the green in two, rather than taking penalty drops.
The first three holes are key to getting a good score. After the first, the second hole is a dogleg par four. The fairway cambers away to the right and down to the trees. It’s not a long hole, so play your straightest club off the tee here to be in position.
The third hole is a short par four over a ravine. Play a sensible drive over the Oak tree and if you are a long hitter and you are tempted to go in the direction of green, be warned that a hazard creeps all around the sides and back of the green. Short hitters may want to lay up short of the hazard here, but remember it is all downhill so take a safe club.
Cranleigh’s ‘Amen Corner’
The 10th is a long tree-lined par four where any shots off line end up in dense woodlands to the left or out of bounds on the right.
The 11th is a lengthy 220-yard par three from the white tees, but it’s still 170 yards from the red tees. The green has two levels and a water hazard creeps along the right edge of the putting surface. Tough hole.
The 12th is a short dogleg par four but it’s all about position here. Your drive has to be in the perfect spot or your second shot will be blocked out by trees. The green is also guarded by a small pond to the front. It’s a very attractive shot in – if you’re on the fairway!

Karl is a PGA Class A Professional who joins Cranleigh Golf & Country Club as our Head Golf Professional. Karl comes to us with a vast array of experience from his time at Royal Wimbledon and St Mellion Golf Clubs respectively, as well as spending a large period of his career overseas where as Head Professional at Elea Estate in Cyprus he also coached the national junior golf team.

Karl’s ability to communicate to his pupils in a very simple and clear manner has been the roots to his success. Coaching players of all abilities from Touring Professionals to complete beginners is something Karl has always found very enjoyable; he finds it just as satisfying to teach a new golfer to hit their first shots, as seeing his elite pupils shooting low scores. As philosophies go Karls is very simple; improve pupils weaknesses by giving clear guidance on the changes which need to be made as well as explaining how best to practice these new movements. When making these swing assessments Karl focuses mainly on the students position at impact, from this analysis he is able to identify the areas that need improvement in the swing.
