Welcome to Merrist Wood Merrist Wood is one of Surrey’s friendliest golf clubs, with a modern and vibrant club house we aim to make golfers of all standards feel welcome. Merrist Wood was awarded a silver grading in the HSBC Regional Courses, which is a great indicator to our course quality and from the Championship tees it is one of the longest in the South of England. Unlike many golf clubs, Merrist Wood offers organised roll-ups during non competition weekends, this leads to a more integrated and friendly club membership. We never use temporary greens, always hand rake greenside bunkers to allow the golfer to show off their skills around the green and offer members free practice balls to use on the range and short game area. As you can see we are a true golfers, golf club. You may not be aware that Merrist Wood Golf Club is part of Crown Golf, Europe’s largest golf club network, which ensures we have an ongoing course improvement programme to ensure that you enjoy your golf all year round. A unique benefit to members of Merrist Wood is not only do they enjoy unlimited golf; they receive complimentary golf at 25 other clubs in our network. This includes 8 Clubs within an hour’s drive of Merrist Wood – Pine Ridge, Oak Park, Pyrford, Traditions, South Winchester, Milford, Cams Hall and Hampton Court Palace – giving you at least £1000 of additional golfing value in addition to your membership at Merrist Wood. Below is a summary of what you as a Member of Merrist Wood would be entitled to, however I would prefer to organise a meeting with you in order to run through the benefits of becoming a member. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of any further assistance and I look forward to hearing from you in the not too distant future.

Many Thanks
