4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Hayling Golf Club: with limited evidence of good-sized sand dunes as you head out to the opening par-3, you might wonder if you are really about to play one of England's much revered links courses. But as you delve further into Hayling's out-and-back layout, the undulating dunes of Sinah Common appear, and Tom Simpson’s design weaves its spell.

The stretch between the snaking par-5 7th and par-5 14th arguably contains Halying's best holes. Hitting the firm fast fairways is key to a good score. Stray too far offline from the short-stuff, and a mix of scrub and gorse thickets await. The greens here are usually quick and true.

Beyond the course the scenery is an eclectic mix of sea and estuary views, wildlife areas, pill-boxes, marinas, and in the distance the Isle of Wight and inland hills.

Did you know?

Hayling Island is connected to the Hampshire mainland by the Langstone road bridge. In times gone by, the crossing onto the island was via the Wadeway, an historic causeway that is now impassable, and which lay just to the east of the current bridge. To the west of the bridge the remains of a former railway viaduct (1865-1963) can just be seen.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
