Sandford Springs, Lakes Course


As its name implies, water is everywhere! The opening four holes of the Lakes provide a tough start to any round – be it your initial induction or when commencing the back nine. The relentlessly ruthless start – a par 444 yard par four, 515 yard par five, 205 yard par three and 403 yard par four stretch of holes – presents as much a mental battle as a golfing one. No more so is that true than the 21st – a 205 yard par three requiring a long iron over a big lake into a green surrounded by bunkers and bordered by thick woodland. Not a shot for the fainthearted

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
