The moment guests enter the driveway at Farnham Estate, they are greeted by acres of rolling countryside and a peaceful haven that can not fail to capture the spirit of relaxation.

Designed by the renwoned Jeff Howes, the front 9 holes of the Farnham Estate Golf Course are now open for play. This stunning parkland course is spread over 500 acres of rolling countryside and dense woodland. The two nines are quite contrasting in nature. The gentle but challenging journey on the front nine explores the undulating meadows of this magnificent estate while the back nine is a more vigorous test of golf, traveling through denser more rugged woodland.

The course opens with a gentle par four, but from the second onwards, the golfer can expect to have every aspect of their game tested to the limit.

The back nine holes will open in October 2009.

Bunkers are not in plentiful supply at Farnham, but each one is very well positioned and in the main, quite large and flat. They are not manicured as one might expect, but aesthetically natural which is the overriding feeling of the whole estate.

The greens are a near-perfect texture and allow for a wide variety of possible pin positions, facilitating the enjoyment of all categories of golfer. The contours are interesting but sensible.

This par 72 course contains a good mix of holes. Many golfers will no doubt find the second quite a long par four while the fourteenth is a drivable one, especially if the wind is in your favour.
