Welcome to Guildford Golf Club
Situated on the Merrow Downs, the Club enjoys a wealth of history and tradition and is home to one of the finest all-weather courses in the South of England. A private Members Club founded in 1886, Guildford is the oldest golf course in Surrey. Guildford Golf Club is pleased to welcome members, new members, societies and visitors.
The course occupies land which was once part of the Onslow Estate, so vividly described by Rudyard Kipling in his "Just So" stories, and until 1870 was the site of a well known race course.
The Club was founded by Colonel W. Bannatyne, Major W. Pontifex and Mr E.L. Hooper, who were resident in the neighbourhood, and the Lord of the Manor, the 4th Earl of Onslow gave his support to the project. Major Pontifex also provides a unique link with the Pau Golf Club, at the foot of the Pyrenees in France, as he and two other members of Guildford Golf Club, Colonel Hutchinson and Archdeacon Spate were founder members of the Pau Golf Club in 1856
