Where2Golf says: 

Liphook Golf Club: The English counties of Surrey and Hampshire have many fine heathland courses, and Liphook is up there with the best. Gently undulating terrain, subtly sloping greens, and the Arthur Croome / Tom Simpson layout make for a challenging and most rewarding round of golf. Typical of heathland layouts, easy draining soil and swathes of heather are key characteristics of the Liphook course.

The original open heathland wilderness has certainly been invaded by plenty of birch and pine trees over the years, giving more of a wooded heathland feel to many of the holes. Scoring well at Liphook calls for a good level of accuracy rather than distance from the tee, and plenty of creativity (and some patience) around the greens. Take too many power-hitting liberties here and the results could be penal!

Did you know?

When the Liphook Golf Club was first founded in 1921, it occupied rooms in what was then the Wheatsheaf Hotel (now the Links Tavern), one of Liphook’s two coaching inns on the old Portsmouth Road. The 1st tee and the 18th green in those days were those nearest to the clubhouse. They are now the 10th tee and the 9th green. The Professional and the Head Greenkeeper were not allowed in the Clubhouse back in the 1920s. They were located in the Black Huts, just over the road by what is now the 10th tee car park.

The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
