Royal Winchester Golf Club

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1888

Royal Winchester Golf Club is home to a pleasantly challenging and undulating 18-hole course, designed by J.H. Taylor, a member of the legendary Great Triumvirate (with James Braid and Harry Vardon).

The layout is built on typical Hampshire downland, partly open and partly tree-lined, and offers lovely views over north east Hampshire. This easy-draining course plays well throughout the year, even on the wettest of days. The layout includes several attractive holes and features that will test most facets of your game. Worth visiting if you are in the area.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
