Sandford Springs Golf Club

The Sandford Springs Golf Club's beautiful golf course within dazzling Hampshire.

Sandford Springs Golf Club in Hampshire

Set between Newbury and Basingstoke amongst the rolling hills of Berkshire and Hampshire, Sandford Springs boasts a trio of challenging nine hole golf courses, a welcoming clubhouse with extensive facilities, a Sandford Springs Golf Academy and a well-stocked golf shop with custom fitting services.

Sandford Springs makes the best use of its enviable geography to present three challenging and distinctly different nine-hole loop courses - The Park, The Wood and The Lakes.

Situated in the Hampshire counrtyside between Basingstoke and Newbury, Sandford Springs golf course was designed by Hawtree & Son, founder members of the British Institute of Golf Course Architects, ensuring the quality that is still clearly apparent today. The first eighteen holes were officially opened by Nick Faldo MBE and Bernard Gallacher OBE on 6 June 1989, a date celebrated annually at the Summer Ball. The final nine holes were added in the summer of 1991.

The course at Sandford Springs has recently had an investment of 1.5 million to improve the drainage on the course and another 250,000 to put some water back - this time selectively on tees, greens and approaches. The new automated irrigation system is now 'on-line' and completes the 4 year programme to turn Sandford Springs into the finest golf course in the region.

The Woods Course

With its mature trees creating a naturally sculpted challenge, accuracy is required to negotiate the avenues of The Woods, arguably the most difficult of Sandford Springs three nines.

A par 36 loop that winds uphill and down dale to guarantee breathtaking views of Watership Down, the variable elements, sloping lies and tricky greens all combine to create the combative characteristics that define The Woods.

The potential card-wrecking hole also doubles as the Woods premier hole. The par four 355 yard 13th asks the golfer to fire his tee-shot into a cascading chasm and, once at the bottom, negotiate a sloping lie shot over water and a deep bunker to find the putting surface.

The Park Course

Strategy, placement and ball-striking are all examined fully on The Park, which, upon climbing to its highest levels, is commonly buffeted by strong prevailing winds that help make it more of a links test.

With plentiful, penal ditches also snaking across the par 34 circuit, those tempted into a risk/reward big hit to clear them will need their A-game to do so.

The 9th is the Park signature hole a 317 yard par four that plunges downhill, requiring an accurate long iron off the tee followed by a nerve-inducing pitch to a green protected by two lakes and two green-side bunkers.

The Lakes Course

As its name implies, water is everywhere! The opening four holes of the Lakes provide a tough start to any round be it your initial induction or when commencing the back nine.

The relentlessly ruthless start a par 444 yard par four, 515 yard par five, 205 yard par three and 403 yard par four stretch of holes presents as much a mental battle as a golfing one.

No more so is that true than the 21st a 205 yard par three requiring a long iron over a big lake into a green surrounded by bunkers and bordered by thick woodland. Not a shot for the fainthearted.
