Aldershot, Hampshire GU11 2HF
18 holes. Tree-lined parkland.
After several relocations, the club settled into its current site in the early-1970s, and a course designed by C.K. "Ken" Cotton, Frank Pennink and Charles Lawrie (1974).
2.5 mi SW of Farnborough / 4 mi NW of Aldershot / 15 mi NW of Guildford.
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.
Visitors welcome on weekdays; contact Club Mgr if wanting a weekend round.

Players generally walk this course.
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.”
PGA Championship: the first men’s major of the year will be contested at TPC Harding Park, without spectators being present (Aug 6-9).
European Senior (Staysure) Tour: the Europe-based over-50s tour for men has taken the reluctant step of cancelling the entire 2020 season, based on the additional coronavirus risk associated with the age demographic of the players.
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.
Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
