Shanklin & Sandown Golf Club

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

Est. 1900

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 from the tips, 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 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.
