  • 5INTRODUCING BANSTEAD DOWNS

    Banstead Downs is a Members Golf Club, founded in 1890. We combine pride in our long traditions with a determination to move the club forward, as demonstrated by our recent investment of over 1 million in course and clubhouse improvements.

    The Course is a superb James Braid design with superb greens and a remarkable resilience to poor weather. It has challenged golfers for 120 years and is now even better, with the recent improvements having extended the yardage to 6,581, with a Standard Scratch of 72.

    The Clubhouse Development has provided us with an entirely new golfers lounge and a separate and completely refurbished dining and function area with its own bar. This area can be opened up for major events or divided into discrete smaller areas for other functions.

    We hope you will visit us soon.

  • 7THE COURSE

    Banstead Downs Golf Course winds its way across the fast draining chalk down, which makes it extraordinarily tolerant of wet weather. The course is often playable when many others are not, and temporary greens are almost unheard of.

    The greens at Banstead have a deserved reputation for year-round excellence, being relatively fast but always fair. Together with the undulating fairways and the variety of challenges including the recently relocated bunkers, they make it a wonderful place for players of all levels to enjoy a round of golf in natural surroundings.

    The extended course opened in May 2010, with the extent from 6,195 to 6,581 yards. The course Par has risen from 69 to 71, and the Standard Scratch Score from 69 to 72. Furthermore, more than 30 bunkers were removed, added or re-located to present new challenges and to reflect the distances achieved with modern golfing equipment.

    Members and guests also benefit from a full practice facility, chipping and short iron area plus a large practice putting green.

    For more information on the course changes see pages 31 and 33.

    The greens at Banstead have a deserved reputation for

    year-round excellence.

  • 9THE CLUBHOUSE

    The newly renovated and furbished clubhouse was opened in 2010 and offers superb, modern and spacious facilities. The clubhouse is new, but the same warm greeting awaits you from all of our hospitable staff. We welcome both members and visitors to enjoy all that is on offer.

    Relax in the sumptuous lounge of the new Conservatory Bar or sit in the sun on the deck and enjoy a coffee from our versatile bean to cup coffee machine which produces the best espressos, lattes, cappuccinos and more. The display counters at the bar are filled with an assortment of hot and cold treats.

    The new facilities offer outstanding versatility, allowing us to cater for functions and events from small intimate parties to large banquets, entirely separate from the Golfers Conservatory Bar. We specialise in providing a quality of service and cuisine that is second to none, with a range of hospitality packages to suit all members corporate and private needs.

    MEMBERSHIP

    Banstead Downs is a Members Club, so is managed for the benefit of Members. Above all, perhaps, our Members enjoy the relaxed and friendly atmosphere which runs through all playing and social activities.

    We do not use a tee-booking system except for Club Competitions and Matches, all of which are clearly communicated through our website and notice-boards, so Members and Visitors can come and play without pre-booking.

    There is a wide range of both weekend and mid-week Club Competitions for all sections of the club. We also play a range of Matches, some in competitive Leagues and Knock-Out Events, others as more relaxed friendly matches against our long-standing friends in other local clubs. All Members are welcome to participate.

    We also run a wide range of Social Events, ranging from Burns Nights, New Year and Christmas Parties and Candlelit Dinners to Jazz Evenings, Supper & Quiz nights and even an annual Golf Rules quiz.
