What the club says: Situated on the South Downs above Portsmouth, this Downland course was designed by F G Hawtree and is a true test of golf with sloping fairways and uneven lies. The views from the second and twelth holes are some of the best in Hampshire golf overlooking Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight and the Solent. There are several outstanding feature holes on the course some of which are dog legs. The course measures 6,040 yards, par 69 for Men and 5,265 yards, par72 for Ladies.

Course is picturesque but tees are in a very poor condition due to lack of water same comment applies to most of the greens.

Sufficient challenges with holes to encourage

This is an interesting course with some distinct challenges. The 6th {especially), 8th and 13th present risk and reward dog-legs, and big-hitters will relish 9th, 10th and 12th. A course with much camber will make you think hard about which line to take.

The club didn?t have a record of our TeeOffTimes booking but were very accommodating & allowed us to start on the 10th at our booked time. Course was in lovely condition but the rough is to be avoided unless you have a good supply of balls. Not a long course but one where position off the tee is more important than distance.

Excellent value for money

Played last week and was not disappointed. Some very interesting holes and a lot of undulation means shots are varied. The greens were in great condition and rolling very quick. I paid £36 for a two ball so definitely represents good value

Great summer course, not many holes open in the winter, lots of hill shots with the ball above and below your feet, had some great scores here though. Would recommend.

Always enjoyable - course of two halves

Always enjoy visiting this course - definitely two completely different halves, both enjoyable and challenging. We didn't have the greatest weather to start with but they offer a rain off refund.

A gem of a course with some great golf holes and stunning views.
This course is very hilly, so for somebody like me, who plays of flat courses it was a good test. If you have the ability to shape your tee shots you should have a good day out at this course. The green were fair for this time of year. They did look OK, but I had trouble getting the pace of them! Tees, fairways and bunkers were all OK. The bunkers did have stones in them, but being on top of a hill I assume they are there to help stop the sand blowing away! They do have a practice are but it's a bit of a walk from the clubhouse. Two nets and a practice putting green outside the clubhouse. I really enjoyed this course, some very interesting holes. I especially liked the 6th, tight tee shot for a dog leg right hole, the 8th, dogleg right with a downhill shot to the green and the 13th, interesting par 4 with a large copse of trees in the middle of the fairway!

The golf reception is very small with a very limited supply of golf accessories. There is a small café area and a bar upstairs, which has a balcony overlooking the 18th green. The staff were helpful and friendly.

I payed £12 for 2pm tee off time on a Sunday afternoon, absolute well worth playing this course if you are in the area.

One of the better courses in the area. Very interesting with wonderful views of Portsmouth & the Solent. Some steep fairways adding to the interest factor. I play it often.
