Golf Courses to Play in The South of England This Summer

By: Liam Moore | Wed 16 Jun 2021 | Comments


While the south of England host many revered courses that make the top 100 lists of the country, there are also plenty of hidden gems. Additionally, the south is slightly more fortunate with warm weather, making it an attractive destination for summer golf.

With help from the incredible Golfshake Community, we have listed only a few golf courses to play during the summer season. From Kent to Devon, or Somerset to Cornwall, there are numerous locations to visit.

Whether you’re looking for parkland courses or a stern links test, the district has everything to accommodate all types of golfers. Below, we list 20 destinations that we highly encourage you to tick off.

Location: Somerset

Golfshake Rating: 4.60

Value For Money Rating: 3.86

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.88

The Manor House Golf Club

The Manor House

Location: Wiltshire

Golfshake Rating: 4.86

Value For Money Rating: 4.18

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.82

Review Comment: “A lovely course in excellent condition with some challenging holes. Would definitely recommend a buggy as there are some steep hills up and down. Will be going back to play again.”

Chiltern Forest Golf Club

Location: Buckinghamshire

Golfshake Rating: 4.53

Value For Money Rating: 4.13

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.80

Review Comment: “Lovely and interesting course, but it is hilly. Whilst short, it is very tight with some lovely holes – especially 11 and 12 – and greens were excellent. All the staff were also really friendly.”

Blackmoor Golf Club

Blackmoor

Location: Hampshire

Golfshake Rating: 4.51

Value For Money Rating: 4.00

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.80

Review Comment: “This is old school golf – not very long but very well defended. Heather-lined fairways, tight dog legs and greens like glass with undetectable borrows. The staff and members all seem very friendly with none of the reserve that’s sometimes encountered at a club like this.”

Lanhydrock Golf Club

Location: Cornwall

Golfshake Rating: 4.47

Value For Money Rating: 4.19

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.80

Hayling Golf Club

Location: Hampshire

Golfshake Rating: 4.40

Value For Money Rating: 3.92

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.80

Review Comment: “Tee boxes and fairways were great while the greens were true. The course design was interesting with some fantastic holes with appropriate risk-and-reward. Some good views of the harbour and I would definitely play again.”

Dartford Golf Club

Golfshake Rating: 4.35

Value For Money Rating: 3.96

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.80

Foxhills Club & Resort

Location: Surrey

Golfshake Rating: 4.50

Value For Money Rating: 3.90

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.75

Review Comment: “A fantastic course that is in excellent condition. Quite challenging, with little room for error, and tree-lined fairways on every hole. A good mixture of par 3, 4 and 5s with stunning views – would love to play again.”

Saunton Golf Club

Saunton

Location: Devon

Golfshake Rating: 5.00

Value For Money Rating: 3.88

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.75

Review Comment: “Fantastic value for money – I paid less than £50 for a late tee off during the summer. Great links test with some really interesting holes during the middle section of the round. Local area is very nice too, if you are planning a trip.”

Taunton & Pickeridge Golf Club

Location: Somerset

Golfshake Rating: 4.67

Value For Money Rating: 4.00

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.75

Review Comment: “The mixture of holes is varied, but I can’t think of a single hole that wasn’t great fun to play. Some large undulating greens which were in great condition. Difficult to decide on a signature hole but the 9th and 14tn are great fun.”

Fulwell Golf Club

Location: Greater London

Golfshake Rating: 4.66

Value For Money Rating: 4.00

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.71

Review Comment: “As you play your round with lovely fairways, great bunker placement and truly exceptional greens, you wonder where they found the space to drop a golf course into this area of London. Thoroughly enjoyable and a great test of golf.”

Studley Wood Golf Club

Studley Wood

Location: Oxford

Golfshake Rating: 4.64

Value For Money Rating: 4.07

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.71

Remedy Oak Golf Club

Remedy Oak

Location: Dorset

Golfshake Rating: 4.99

Value For Money Rating: 3.94

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.71

Review Comment: “I have never played on better fairways – it was like hitting off a green. I was a guest of a member and I will hopefully play there again. Beautiful tree-ridden setting in a lovely area.”

Lamberhurst Golf Club

Location: Kent

Golfshake Rating: 4.58

Value For Money Rating: 4.22

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.71

Review Comment: “Played as part of a society and comments have generally resulted in it being the best course we’ve played this year. If you’ve never played before, watch out for the ditch/stream on the back nine, but the course offers good variety and it was in fantastic condition.”

Clandon Regis Golf Club

Location: Surrey

Golfshake Rating: 4.44

Value For Money Rating: 3.87

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.71

Location: Oxfordshire

Golfshake Rating: 4.41

Value For Money Rating: 3.90

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 4.71
