Enjoy it while you can

This course potentially closes for redevelopment and its a shame. For golfers of all levels this is a great course in great condition. Its not to tough and fair for all. Great to introduce beginners to 18 holes of golf. It has some excellent risk and reward holes and a variety of tricky par 3s which are made harder when the wind is swirling through the trees. Its great value and never takes longer to get round. Clubhouse is good and staff are friendly. Be a shame to let it close.

excellent greens

Do not be put off by the short length, this course is very narrow and the greens are excellent. The course is tree line throughout and the rough is its defence as is the slick greens which really are credit to the green keeper. Very helpful staff in both the pro shop and the catering section. Well worth a visit

Southwood Golf Course

Great little public course in the north east of Hampshire, good value for money , in great condition and very friendly , such a shame that it is going to be bulldozed down in 2018 to make way for more newhouses.

First time round here. Good value playing at twilight on a weekend. Interesting course with various hazards and other features such as the odd tree that encroaches into the fairway. Sadly, appears course is likely to close in near future due to Council wanting to convert the land to something else. Get round it whilst you can.

Very cheap to play but it is worth paying a little extra to play elsewhere. The condition of the course is not good at all and the layout especially the last few holes is like an afterthought. Would not recommend playing here especially in the winter.

Course in good condition for a play and pay course. Not difficult, many par 4 holes could be reached in 2 shots with a 5 iron.

Course in very good condition, and has vastly improved in last 12 months.
Be nice to see some fresh soft sand in the bunkers, but on the hole the course is looking great. Greens in particular are very good.

Only had time to play the font 9 holes, Course is well-kept in good condition and is more challenging than first appears. The greens are quick and fairways well kept, (beware of drainage ditches if you wonder off the fairways) the bunkers need more work (weeds and hard sand in some not all) looking forward to playing again soon.

The course was in very poor condition i.e. Overgrown, bunkers covered in grass and in need of some TLC. On the positive side greens were very good.
