I just wanted to drop you a note to thank everyone at North Downs Golf Club who have yet again allowed us to have such a successful society day with you.
This is our second visit to your club and once more from the moment we stepped inside we were made to feel nothing but welcome, coffee on arrival, amazing breakfast and attentive and courteous staff made for the best of starts to our day. The buzz from the players was all around it being the best breakfast and the friendliest club.
The members we met could not have been nicer and are a credit to your club, when we returned after our round and made the presentation of our prizes, we even had members applauding our players too.
Special note to the bar staff and catering team who surpassed themselves, and of course to your good self for allowing us to host our event with you.
We will be back next year for sure as I can safely say I have found a "home" for the Alice Hope Classic as part of the Beeming Giffords Golf Society calendar of events.
I think we will be moving this event to a summer month next year so I will be in touch to pencil in a date in due course
Unless of course you can see if a Saturday in mid/late August is available now for me to put my name down for, I also think word of mouth from the players will see a significant increase in the numbers too !!!

We had a most enjoyable day playing golf at your club yesterday. Some of us had played the course before but to others it was a new experience. There was a universal feeling that it was an excellent venue for this year’s meeting of our group of friends.
The course was in lovely order which, considering the lengthy drought followed by the rains of the last few days, is pretty remarkable. We also enjoyed the food afterwards.
Thank you for your help in making all this possible.

Thank you for hosting our show and being kind enough to let us use the room on the Monday to help us practice our new format.
The food and hospitality were 1st class so please pass on our thanks to all your staff and I am sure we would love to visit you again in the future

Thank you to you and all the Team at North Downs Golf Club for a superb day last Friday which we all thoroughly enjoyed. The course was in superb condition and the catering matched it. We hope to return for a future golf day.
Kind regards, P.B. Chairman, HSBC AFC
Hi Keith, Can I say that we really enjoyed our day with you. The weather apart , which actually was not that bad considering, everything about the day was first class. The course was in excellent condition, the hospitality we received from start to finish was exceptional and all the catering was amazing. Everyone commented on the food quality and amount available. The Absolute Best Full English Breakfast we have ever received on one of our days. Please pass on our thanks to everyone at the club for making our day
Please can I confirm our provisional booking for 2016
Many thanks again.

Re Visit of Vagrants Golf Society 5th August 2015
May I take this opportunity on behalf of all of the members of our golf society and their guests to thank the staff of your club for a splendid day. We were received warmly, the course was in very fine condition and we were served a splendid evening meal. The service from the bar to the waitresses was friendly and efficient. The day was enjoyed by all
Once again you organised a wonderful day out for everyone who took part in your Open on Thursday. We were so lucky with the weather and the course looked lovely. But most of all it’s the hard work of your members which makes the day such a success. A warm welcome, tasty half way nibbles and a delicious lunch rounded everything off. I brought a new team this year who had not played North Downs before. We all really enjoyed ourselves and can’t wait for next year
Thank you so much to you all for such a happy fun day
With best wishes for a warm and successful summer

Dear Lady Captain
Thank you so much for a lovely day last Thursday. We were lucky with the weather and we all had a lovely day, it was a bonus to win, and such lovely prizes. We appreciated all the hard work your committee and ladies section put into the day. Also the hard work of the staff and chef, food was delicious.
We look forward to taking part next year and hope your arm recovers quickly and you soon get out on the golf course
Kind regards PW,VG,KG,FB, Hever Golf Club – May 2015
I recently played at North Downs with a group of friends and was pleasantly surprised.
Apart from the fact that the course was very quiet and there was no waiting on the tee like some other courses we have played I was impressed with how friendly the staff and members were.
Looking at the score card we all thought we were going to murder it but we found it to be challenging but rewarding if you managed your way around.
The huge 9 hole breakfast we had was well appreciated and the drink in the bar welcome after a fairly hot day.
We will be back in 2015.
PLD – September 2014
Hi, I thought I would take the time to give you some feedback on your course, staff, members and club on the whole. I booked a 3 ball for the 24th Nov at 11am taking advantage of your ham, egg and chips deal. Shortly after booking we realised we would probably like to eat before teeing off. I called NDGC back and spoke to a lady who kindly agreed to ask the kitchen to open early to accomodate us at around 1030 for our brunch despite your kitchen not opening until 11am. On arrival I turned up early to have a putt and swing in the nets where the lad in the pro-shop kindly talked us through the first few holes along with some of the local etiquettes. We then headed to the bar area where a patient chef sat by the serving hatch and with barely an introduction asked when we would like to eat. The food was then prepared and whilst we waited she brought us in some teas and coffees as she said the bar wasn't able to yet due to it still being closed. As we sat talking every single person who entered the room not only said hello but stopped for a chat. This continued throughout the afternoon, whether we were waiting at a tee or letting someone through in front of us. The food was lovely, the coffee strong, the staff genuine, helpful and polite. The course was well kept, challenging, well marked, fair rough and amazing views. Your members were friendly and talkative. We have played most courses in the East of Surrey and many around the country with most being rather pretentious, negative towards non-members and not particuarly accomodating. North Downs Golf Club, despite its location within one of the most affluent villages in Surrey is none of those things. I cannot sing high enough praise to all at NDGC, staff and members alike. It is far too easy to complain these days where positive comments go unspoken. We look forward to visiting you again soon.
Kind Regards MT
What an absolute corker of a golf course, not long but none the less tricky, a course for the thinker and plotter rather than for the basher and slugger. We found the course in relatively good condition for March with good greens which will be even harder to read and putt on come the summer months. A great day was had by everyone with a warm welcome given to us by all the staff we met, the only downer was the early morning fog which made things difficult for a few holes, but hey we were looking for a new course to replace one of our old venues and we've found it. North Downs will now remain on our fixture list. Nuff said!
