Foxhills Country Club has every right to puff out its chest when it comes to its spa facilities – they are outstanding: a 20m indoor swimming pool, hydropool with massage jets, steam room,relaxation room with Le Corbusier chaise lounges, Spa Garden(featuring one of England’s first natural swimming pools, chemical-free water purified by plants and minerals), outdoor hot tub, two Finnish saunas, al fresco relaxation bays with loungers and deck chairs, state-of-the-art gym and a good selection of scheduled including yoga and spin.
Added to that is a huge menu of spa treatments, including Elemis facials and massages, bespoke treatments tailored for you and introductory spa treatments for younger guests (family-friendly is woven into the Foxhills’ DNA, another reason it’s not as stuffy as you might suspect). Should you want to bolt-on a day of golf to your Surrey spa break, you’re spoilt for choice: there are 3 golf courses, one of which Golf World put on its ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in England’ list, as well as golf lessons with a PGA-qualified coach.
We spent over an hour being put through our golf paces by the ever-lovely, ever-patient Ashley, one of Foxhills’ Golf Professionals. Despite Ashley’s brilliant, comprehensive coaching I discovered I’m more suited to spa-ing than I am par-ing and so headed back to the pool to drown my sorrows.
60 minutes’ golf coaching with Ashley costs £70 for adults £50 for juniors.
