Army Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1883

Army Golf Club, home to a pleasant tree-lined parkland layout, is located close to Aldershot, a garrison town and the "Home of the British Army". Although the club has military origins, for many years it has had a predominantly civilian membership.

The course is situated on 165 acres of low, undulating woodland between Farnborough and Aldershot. Included in the par of 71 are three par-3s and two par-5s. Today's course layout was established in the 1960s, with mature trees and rhododendrons bordering many of the fairways, and providing a blaze of colour in the spring.

Several bridges on the course span water ditches that either run alongside or across some fairways. Each bridge bears the cap badge of a different British Army regiment.

Did you know?

In 1883, 1st Battalion, The Cameronians, was serving in Aldershot. As a Scottish regiment, there would certainly have been golfers amongst them. Their officers were members of the Royal Aldershot Officers’ Club, and may well have been responsible for a ground swell of interest in golf, as evidenced by a paragraph in ‘The Surrey and Hants News’ on Oct 13, 1883. The short paragraph read: “GOLF: it is proposed to establish a Golf Club on the Aldershot Camp. Officers interested are requested to communicate with Lt Col Sartorious VC (Deputy Assistant Quartermaster General) on the arrangements to be made.”

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
