Another great course that opens both nines with a tough one-shot hole!

Golf Course Review

North Hants Golf Club lies on the boundary of Hamshire and Surrey, north of the town of Fleet and west of Farnborough. The course is easily accessible from London, located directed south of the M3 motorway. The course is found between the Fleet Pond Nature Reserve and the Elvetham Heath Nature Reserve.

North Hants Golf Club History

Opened by Princess Alexander of Teck in 1904. The club merged 'the ethos of a gentleman's club... and the atmosphere of an American Country Club.'

Frank Pennink wrote: 'North Hants Golf Club has nothing to fear in comparison with any of Surrey's finest golf.' The course lies west of Farnborough and north of Fleet, with the M3 Motorway to the north and the South Western Railway to the south.

North Hants Golf Course Architecture Pedigree

Several of the games most prominent golf course architects have crafted into the course it is today. James Braid laid out the course in 1904 and returned to lengthen it in 1908.

Golden age greats got involved when Harry Colt extensively redesigned it in 1913. Tom Simpson improved it further in 1930.

In more modern times, Donald Steel added three new holes in 2001 and Tom Mackenzie has worked on the 3rd and 15th holes more recently.
