Meon Valley Hotel, Golf & Country Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1976

Meon Valley Hotel, Golf & Country Club, a former Marriott hotel and golf facility, nestles in quiet Hampshire countryside, equidistant from the major ports of Southampton to the west and Portsmouth to the south. Here you can ply your golfing skills on the championship Meon course, and sharpen them on the nine-hole Valley course.

Incorporated into the relatively recent design of the Meon layout, are tightish fairways ... often with a little more width than is suggested from the tee. Challenging tee-shots are matched by several equally tight approaches to the greens, where mature trees and skilful bunkering provide solid defences.

Water is in play on only a few holes, but dangerously so when it does appear. The downhill par-3 12th, played to a water-surrounded green, is the most testing. The back-nine is a bit more open than the front, revealing some pleasant views onto the sleepy rural setting.

Stay&Play at Meon Valley: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
