With more golf courses than any other county in the country - and some of the best ones too - it's hard for golfers to wrong in Surrey. We have compiled a list of the top ten golf courses to play in Surrey.

8. Worplesdon Golf Club

Willie Park Jnr masterminded the greens and bunkers at Worplesdon, while John Abercrombie provided the initial design in 1908. Not a lot has needed to be changed over the last century, as the course is often considered one of the best and most picturesque in Surrey. Worplesdon borders West Hill and Woking golf clubs, but this one just gets the edge.

Postcode: GU22 0RA
Closest station: Worplesdon
Cost of round: £65-90
Playing requirements: No visitors at weekends. Official handicap required: 20 or below for men, 30 or lower for women

9. Hankley Common Golf Club

Initially a nine-hole course, James Braid remodelled it in 1922 before Harry Colt tweaked it in 1936. Eight of the holes have recently been lengthened, meaning the heathland course at Hankley Common now measures 6,702 yards off the back tees.

Postcode: GU10 2DD
Closest station: Farnham/Milford
Cost of round: £60-110
Playing requirements: No visitors before 2pm at weekends

10. Sunningdale Golf Club

Only Wentworth can rival Sunningdale for the title of Surrey's premier golf course. Taken together, Sunningdale's Old and New courses are possibly Britain's best 36 holes of golf, although the Old Course probably just pips the New. Willie Park Jnr's Old Course opened in 1901, before Harry Colt made some alterations to it and then created the New Course in 1923.

Postcode: SL5 9RR
Closest station: Sunningdale
Cost of round: £100-195
Playing requirements: None
