Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club Est. 1900

Where2Golf says: 

Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club: Located behind the town of Sandown, and less than a mile from Sandown Bay, this partly open, partly wooded course provides the toughest golfing challenge on the Isle of Wight. With the majority of the course constructed on well draining heathland, it is playable all year round. At just over 6000 yards, Shanklin & Sandown is not renowned for its length, but does enjoy a reputation for the picturesque countryside views seen from the course. There are some strong slopes and gradients here, with gorse, trees and shrubs lining many of the tightish fairways, making accurate driving and careful club selection essential for successful scoring. The tight, elevated, short par-3 5th, together with the testing par-4 13th are two of the best known and potentially most dangerous holes. Overall a short, scenic and testing course. Tough going for the once-a-year holiday golfer, but a very enjoyable course for visiting handicap golfers.

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.

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...
