Hayling Golf Club: Starting out with a par-3 next to the beach huts, and little sign of sand dunes, you might wonder if you are really at a 4-star course. But as you delve further in, the dunes begin to appear and the skill of Tom Simpson’s design weaves its spell.
The greens are usually fast and true and fairways generally good; if you stray from the short-stuff, scrub and gorse thickets await. Beyond the course the scenery is not stunning, but with views over sea, estuary, wildlife area, pill-boxes, marinas, the Isle of Wight and distant hills, etc, etc, visual variety is guaranteed.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
