Sandford Springs, Wood Course


With its mature trees creating a naturally sculpted challenge, accuracy is required to negotiate the avenues of The Woods, arguably the most difficult of Sandford Springs’ three nines. A par 36 loop that winds uphill and down dale to guarantee breathtaking views of Watership Down, the variable elements, sloping lies and tricky greens all combine to create the combative characteristics that define The Woods. The potential card-wrecking hole also doubles as the Woods’ premier hole. The par four 355 yard 13th asks the golfer to fire his tee-shot into a cascading chasm and, once at the bottom, negotiate a sloping lie shot over water and a deep bunker to find the putting surface

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
