Must Play Golf Courses to Experience in the South of England

By: Golfshake Editor | Wed 10 Mar 2021 | Comments


Golfers across the South of England are looking forward to a memorable season and the chance to experience many of the fantastic layouts that can be discovered within this expansive region - and there are some crackers to choose from.

On Golfshake, we recently unveiled our special OUTSTANDING VENUE Service Award Winners, those destinations that have been Highly Recommended by the Golfshake Community for each of the past three years.

Among them, a fair number can be found in the South, venues that have achieved high standards over a prolonged period, representing courses and facilities that can be considered must visits - all endorsed by hundreds of everyday golfers.

Look out for future articles on the South East and South West, but for now, if you live in the South or feel like making the journey in 2021, these are confirmed to be OUTSTANDING!

Highly Recommended Reviews in 2018/2019/2020: 160

Positive Highly Recommended Rating: 98.75%

Review Comment: "Worth a visit - greens in exceptional condition for time of year. Fairways not too bad as well. Despite some work being undertaken on the course worth playing."

Old Thorns Golf Club

Old Thorns

Location: Hampshire

Highly Recommended Reviews in 2018/2019/2020: 157

Positive Highly Recommended Rating: 96.81%

Review Comment: "One of the better courses I have played. We come back here every year for a long weekend of golf. It's a thinking course with holes that look easy but then you get caught out."

The Hampshire Golf Club

The Hampshire

Location: Hampshire

Highly Recommended Reviews in 2018/2019/2020: 155

Positive Highly Recommended Rating: 94.83%

Review Comment: "Lovely course with amazing view of the Hampshire countryside. Quite forgiving with short rough. Tough going when windy."

Woburn Golf Club

Woburn

Location: Buckinghamshire

Highly Recommended Reviews in 2018/2019/2020: 154

Positive Highly Recommended Rating: 99.35%

Review Comment: "Amazing day spent with awesome weather playing the Marquess. Played Duchess in the past, but marquess is my favourite."

Abbey Hill Golf Club

Abbey Hill

Location: Buckinghamshire

Highly Recommended Reviews in 2018/2019/2020: 154

Positive Highly Recommended Rating: 97.40%

Review Comment: "Excellent all the way, but then I am biased, I am a member. Seriously a beautiful course as well as challenging."

Huntswood Golf Club

Location: Buckinghamshire

Highly Recommended Reviews in 2018/2019/2020: 148

Positive Highly Recommended Rating: 94.59%

Review Comment: "Huntswood GC represents a great challenge in that the course has comparatively small fairways which are protected by many 'out-of-bound' areas thus hitting the ball straight is imperative. The greens are deceiving as are most of the hole layouts themselves."

Dibden (Bramshott Hill) Golf Centre

Dibden

Location: Hampshire

Highly Recommended Reviews in 2018/2019/2020: 129

Positive Highly Recommended Rating: 99.22%

Review Comment: "Great course, shame about how I played. Very well looked after and good cutting off rough. Interesting layout of holes. No two holes feel the same which is great and does make it a challenge if you are not on your game."

Test Valley Golf Club

Test Valley

Location: Hampshire

Highly Recommended Reviews in 2018/2019/2020: 126

Positive Highly Recommended Rating: 98.41%

Review Comment: "Varied course in the Hampshire countryside bordered by a railway line so occasionally noisy. Varied challenges on chalk so well drained in the winter, course in excellent condition with no muddy patches. Some greens have slope challenge, ran true but need to have the pace of your first putt right to avoid three putting. Excellent clubhouse and range, welcoming friendly staff. Intend to play again."
