Epsom is a bustling market town just outside the suburbs of London, England. It sits in Surrey, to the South West of London. Great transport links and a hubbub of community spirit make this a very popular place to live, with great schools and thriving markets. While it is definitely close enough to benefit from what London has to offer, it also offers close links to the countryside, with magnificent Epsom Common, and nearby Nonsuch Park providing excellent green spaces.
If you ever manage to get to Epsom, the one thing you need to do is to go to the local golf course. It is amazing with its inspiring views over London. It is an 18 hole that plays 5,780 yards with great holes that will test your skills as a golfer. The Epsom Golf Club is filled with history, dating back 125 years of tournament play.
No two holes are alike and you have to play through challenging trees that block view and make the fairways narrow. The greens are also well known for their fast speed and tricky hole-positions.
Epsom also has a great range where you can hit golf balls into golf nets that are over 200 yards across the field. So make sure you arrive on time to warm up and get those bogeys out of your system before your play starts.
