No 67 - Liphook

A Hampshire favourite for many, Liphook can boast pristine greens and some beautifully framed holes. The lovely club feel makes this venue very appealing

No matter what time of year you choose to play Liphook, you can rely on the course being presented in pristine condition. The greens here are consistently among the best you’ll find anywhere in the UK.

The course winds its way through the trees and heather that are the hallmark of this tranquil patch of Hampshire countryside.

These features have been cleverly used to frame and protect each hole and while the course isn’t long, the fast greens and well-placed bunkers require a careful strategy.

There are few more enjoyable settings for a day’s golf. NT

+ Lovely club feel; holes beautifully framed by heather and trees - Too many short par 4s; have to cross a noisy road
