What the club says: Situated in the heart of the New Forest, in the village of Burley, the club is accessible form both the A31 and the A35 roads. The location of the course is stunning with wonderful views across the New Forest heathland and with many of the local animals visible at all times. The course measures 6151 yards, par 71 for men, and 5347 yards, par 70 for ladies and represents an interesting challenge for golfers of all standards. The course is essentially a 9 hole course but with different tees for the first and second 9 holes. The challenge is quite different for each half of the round.

Burley's a 9 hole course in the New Forest, with each of the holes' having twin tees to give you a different look. Over 18 holes you'll play three par 5's, three par 3's, and twelve par 4's

Mostly the fairways are fairly wide and accommodating, but the the 7th narrows down the closer you get to the green. This hole is certainly the most memorable, with a huge tree protecting the front of the green.

The greens and tees were decent, while the fairways were a little patchy in places, but the course is nicely laid out and fairly enjoyable.

Course soft after lots of rain, still playable. 7th a great hole; tough drive; plays longer than yardage. 2nd playing long in these conditions. Great challenge; windy again. Harder than the course rating shows. Number 18 is tough; tight drive and a long hole. Possibly need to take tee shot over bushes on left; more room left than right here.

We had a good afternoon

Weekday 3pm tee time was £20.
9 holes and round twice. Different tee boxes, but doesn't make much difference and it can get congested.
One of out group described the greens as like putting on ice rinks, which was a pretty fair description. I understand it's known as 'Bouncy Burley'.
Nice when the ponies are about and a deer ran across the back of one green whilst we were playing.
It made a nice change to play there, once every couple of years would be pleasant, but I can't imagine playing here regularly.
All in all we all had a good time - the White Buck pub nearby is also a bonus.

A unique experience

This course is great fun and certainly one to tick off. You give up some of the quality of other local courses in regards to fairway standards however the fact you can be playing golf shots stood next to ponies, cows and the like makes it a fun and unique experience. The course condition is actually very good considering you really are in the heart of the New Forest and the challenge it provides comes from all angles even when you've hit middle of fairway there is no guarantee you'll have an even footing which adds to the fun.
Thoroughly enjoyable and would play again.

Great course

2nd hole is a fun, short par three, big bunker short. Ball was running very fast, par 5 third played, pitching wedge in. Great downhill dogleg left, fairway tightens a driving area. Seventh is pretty quirky, big Oak tree on left hangs over the green, need to get the ball down as far as possible off the drive, hole dog legs down hill left, can very easily be blocked out and have to play a low one in, with the land taking your ball right, would be some shot to hit a low one on green. Sixth plays longer than the yardage; uphill second. 9th also plays uphill for the approach. Handicap 6. Score 44 for 9 holes.

Unique

Great round at Burley. Very friendly club
Well looked after greens which are very tricky. Not a long course but you have to really think hard before every shot. Very good value. Occasionally frustrating that good shots into greens run off. Great to be with nature with moooovable obstructions everywhere!

Picturesque, undulating and covered in horse poo! Greens excellent, and a decent challenge. Hookers and slicers beware as it benefits the straight hitters. Main road splits the course and it is a nightmare trying to cross the road when the commuters are dashing from the A31 to the A35 as it's a rat-run. Ponies often on fairways.

Easy to hit your ball into the path of a car as some fairways are close to the road. Club facilities average, and no discount for 9 holes. Worth a visit on a nice day,

Reviewed Jul 5 2013

First time I had played the crse and enjoyed it. Never had to chase ponies of a tee before. Greens were very good and fast and true. rough as expected for the New forest is unforgiving and lots of holly bushes and needle like hedges so if you find your ball it is impossible to play. For first time visitors it is not that user friendly as no yardae markers and the 3rd drive is very difficult if you do not know were you are going. clubhouse is OK but nothing special. All in all not bad but would not be in a rush to play it again.

If you live in the area you have to give this course a go! The views are spectacular and in the summer the scent of the bracken and heather is overwhelming. The course plays well, with the hard heathland ground the greens are quick with subtle lumps and hollows... unlike the fairways which have more swell than Bournemouth's artifical reef
It was an interesting experience having to herd a pony off the 2nd tee. All part of New Forest golfing I guess. I will go back. £496 membership, I may go a lot!

Reviewed Jul 13 2010

Burley Golf Club was established in 1905. The course was set out on Forestry land and is a typical heathland course that remains largely unspoiled today. Although there are only 9 greens, the tees are different for the front and back 9s adding some variety. The greens are renowned for their quality and certainly lived up to their reputation - remarkable given that the ponies have a free rein! Overall, nowhere near as easy as it might appear from the card and with a challenging walk thrown in, Burley is well worth a visit to sample New Forest golf in the raw. Also the first time that I have come across an "honesty box" to pay your green fee!
