SQ Leasing Ltd commited to making the course and clubhouse as good as it can be with the new lessees commited to a 15 year lease.
John Quin and Jack Symons are spending much of their time at the club and welcome members discussing their plans for the club.
A number of significant changes have been made to both the Golf Course and Clubhouse which has made the facilities in the Cafe a welcome habitat for both golfers and users of the park.
All -comers including dog wakers are made welcome in the warm cosy atmosphere. It has become a regular meeting place for people to enjoy a hot or cold drink with something to eat in-between their game of golf or their visit to the Park. On a warm day they can sit on the verandar to consume their refreshments while taking in the scenery or watching the efforts of the golfers.
The official opening of the Henry Cotton designed course in 1966
The first course on this site was built in 1896. Sadly in 1915 the Surrey Agricultural Committee commandeered part of the course resulting in the closure of nine of its 18 holes. All for a pricely sum of £500 in compensation. Sadly the original club was closed in 1920.
Golf returned to the park in 1934. A nine hole course was started up by Sir Edward Perceval and was locally known as the 'Artisan Golf Course' being primarily for the use of beginners and local golfers who did not have the means to join an expensive private members club.
In July 1942 the War Agricultural Committee surveyed the park and decided that all but 50 acres of the park needed to be ploughed up for farming purposes. Unfortunately this included the 'Artisans Golf Course'.
A new nine hole par 3 golf course designed by the three times open champion, Sir Henry Cotton, commenced construction in 1964. The course was open for play in 1966 and was originally completely fenced because of numerous cattle that were grazed in the park. Most of the fencing is gone and the course has matured to become what we believe is one of the finest par 3 courses in the country.
