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.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
