Liphook Golf Club

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

Est. 1922

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 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.

Back in the 1920s, the professional and head greenkeeper were not allowed in the clubhouse. They were located in the Black Huts, just over the road by what is now the 10th tee car park.
