Sandford Springs, Park Course


Strategy, placement and ball-striking are all examined fully on The Park, which, upon climbing to its highest levels, is commonly buffeted by strong prevailing winds that help make it more of a links test. With plentiful, penal ditches also snaking across the par 34 circuit, those tempted into a risk/reward big hit to clear them will need their ‘A-game’ to do so. The 9th is the Park signature hole – a 317 yard par four that plunges downhill, requiring an accurate long iron off the tee followed by a nerve-inducing pitch to a green protected by two lakes and two green-side bunkers.

Course Description

Sandford Springs makes the best use of its enviable geography to present three challenging and distinctly different nine-hole loop courses - The Park, The Wood and The Lakes

Situated in the Hampshire counrtyside between Basingstoke and Newbury, Sandford Springs golf course was designed by Hawtree & Son, founder members of the British Institute of Golf Course Architects, ensuring the quality that is still clearly apparent today. The first eighteen holes were officially opened by Nick Faldo MBE and Bernard Gallacher OBE on 6 June 1989, a date celebrated annually at the Summer Ball. The final nine holes were added in the summer of 1991

The course at Sandford Springs has recently had an investment of £1.5 million to improve the drainage on the course and another £250,000 to put some water back - this time selectively on tees, greens and approaches. The new automated irrigation system is now 'on-line' and completes the 4 year programme to turn Sandford Springs into the finest golf course in the region
