Staying with us for a tee-riffic time? (sorry we couldn’t resist!) Then you’re in for a real treat, as we have some of the most beautiful golf courses in the country, including heathland courses in the New Forest and courses overlooking the beach. Here’s a run down of a handful of our favourites, but there’s more to be discovered, so do have a little look around.
Burley Golf Club: Known as the friendliest club of the forest, Burley Golf Club is situated in the heart of the New Forest in the village of Burley. The course is absolutely stunning with wonderful views across the New Forest heathland with New Forest ponies, cattle and donkeys not too far.
The course itself is 6151 yards, par 71 for men, and 5347 yards, par 70 for ladies and represents an interesting challenge for golfers at all levels. The course is essentially a 9-hole course but with different tees for the first and second 9 holes.
The superb drainage makes the course playable for 52 weeks of the year and usually 90 minutes after cessation of the heaviest rain.
Visitors are always welcome to enjoy the excellent course and hospitable clubhouse and will be assisted by the friendly administration team.
Highcliffe Castle Golf Club: A warm and welcoming club founded in 1913, Highcliffe Castle Golf Club is situated in the picturesque coastal village of Highcliffe-on-Sea and is open to visitors and societies all year round.
Set across 50 acres of parkland just above the coastline, the course is a 18 hole, par 64. While it is a smaller course, it has plenty of charm and challenging ground throughout.
Barton on Sea Golf Club: Perfectly situated on the coastal cliff on the south coast of England, the Barton on Sea golf course has 27 holes in a combination of the original Harry Colt design from 1932 and the newer holes designed by the well-known J Hamilton Stutt, which were completed in 1992. And, with superb drainage across the entire course, it can be enjoyed all year round. We told you it was tee-riffic!
