Alresford Golf Club

Hampshire

  • Par 69
  • 6004 Yds

Created in 1890, but extended to its current layout in 1993, Alresford is quickly establishing a reputation as one of the ‘must play’ courses in  the south of England.

It is an interesting and challenging layout, with tree-lined fairways and a variety of cleverly positioned bunkers.

The greens are small, fast and well-guarded and the combination of trees, bunkers, sculpted fairways and thick rough mean accuracy is essential.

Alresford is home to a couple of driveable par 4s which can offer up a birdie or a double bogey just as easily and this makes for an exciting matchplay course where holes can change hands rapidly.

While two of Hampshire’s best long par 4s – the 11th measures almost 460 yards – demand a clear strategy for even the best golfers, the course is easy walking and set on rolling downland on the slopes of Tichborne Down.

This location not only offers some superb views of the surrounding Hampshire countryside, but also ensures any excess moisture is easily absorbed by the natural chalk underfoot and therefore makes the course playable throughout the year.

Alresford has hosted several tournaments over the years – both amateur and professional – and offers great deals.

Two top Holes by David Maskery, secretary

11th All Aboard!, 456 yards, par 4

The longest par 4 has a demanding tee shot over a small oak tree to a narrow, undulating fairway.
The elevated green is beyond a fairway bunker placed centrally to catch shy approaches.  The green slopes back to front so if the pin is at the front anything landing short will run back.

16th President, 195 yards, par 3

A difficult par 3 that demands accuracy and distance control. Most players will use a wood, which makes the shot through a funnel of trees intimidating.
Finding the putting surface does not guarantee a par as putts can be long and breaking across the sloping green.
