Built on the land of the famous Secrets orchard in west Surrey, seven miles from the city of Guildford, Milford Golf Club features a wonderful 18 hole course, designed by Alliss and Clark, and a clubhouse that offers a warm welcome to golfers and non-golfers alike. We have a very active and friendly members section and, as part of the Crown Golf group, we offer members a range of benefits, from free golf development sessions to attractive discounts off golf breaks abroad.
Our golf facilities include a well stocked pro shop, providing expert, impartial advice and services like re-grip, spike replacement and shaft extension. We have an eight-bay driving range, a short game practice area with bunker, a driving net and a newly laid putting green, opened in April 2018. There are 10 buggies available to hire, with discounted rates for members, and the locker room block provides changing and shower facilities adjacent to the clubhouse.
Opened in 1993, our course was designed by the famous Peter Allis and Clive Clark duo, who created a beautiful 18 holes from former orchard land, and gave the course a challenging finish. Six of the holes are protected by pretty water features (not so pretty when you’re in them) and the whole course benefits from its prime location in the beautiful west Surrey countryside. For beginners and experienced golfers alike, it’s a course that will test and reward you in equal measure.
The 1st is a 390 yard, 90 degree dogleg right, which challenges you to cut the corner or play straight. Go for it with your driver and you’ll run the risk of ending up in a copse. The sensible shot is a hybrid wood up the hill, followed by a mid-iron into a generous green. It’s a great hole to begin your round. The question is, how brave do you feel under the gaze of the clubhouse
Just as you feel you’re nearing the finish line, up comes the 17th, a fiendish par 3 that has destroyed many a card. Don’t be fooled by its diminutive size (93 yards), it’s green or bust as you tee off over water with out of bounds on the right and woodland over the back, complete with stream. As you take aim at the 17th hole, you really get the feeling you’re entering the arena of make or break.
And then comes the 18th. A 457 yard par 5 over water, this hole requires a fairly large, accurate tee shot and offers you two choices: a straight 160-180 yard carry, or the Tiger line, carrying 200 yards. Either way, you’ll need to dissect the trees on the other side, but if you can pull all that off, the generous green will pull in your approach shot… provided you can avoid the large, doughnut-shaped bunker on the way.
“A very good course which is well maintained. The staff are helpful and courteous and they have the best bacon rolls – all in all a fabulous club!” – JB
