As an employee of this club, the following may be considered less than impartial.  That said, the quality of the course, clubhouse, etc. were key factors in deciding to work there!
At 6303 yards (par 71) off the white tees there are certainly longer courses out there, but don't let this deceive you into thinking it can be overpowered.  Very few of the holes are straight and with penal rough abound (in the summer months), club selection from the tee is key.  Being a Downland course, several holes have sloping fairways, so plotting your way round these can be both rewarding and frustrating, pending the quality of the decisions you make and the shots you execute.  Allied to this is the wind.  Certain parts of the course are more exposed than others and you'll find yourself faced with every type of wind shot in the book.
Despite the relatively modest length, it's the design and variety/selection of holes on offer that will keep you coming back for more.  There are 4 par 3s, three of which are over 200 yards.  If you score well on these, you may be on for a good round.  Conversely there are 5 pars 4s under 350 yards.  On a good day these may represent the 'scoring' holes, but for the reasons mentioned above, never assume this and treat them with due caution, especially if the wind is blowing.
The real jewel in the course crown is/are the USGA specification greens.  Large, well maintained, undulating and receptive.  There's a certain confidence gained from knowing that you can attack with your approach shots, although my opinion is that understanding where best to place your ball, given the undulations in play, will take many visits to appreciate.
Standout holes for me are the sharp dogleg left 8th, the tempting but well protected 17th and of course the 9th and 18th with a protective water hazard and the largest shared green I've ever experienced.  Terry Wogan's famous pro celebrity putt would have only represented a tap in on this expanse!
Surrey Downs GC will not disappoint.  It's a course that will never stop you thinking and for that reason alone it should represent a course that warrants membership consideration.
