Built around 1865, the Forest Course is the oldest course in Hampshire and with its open aspects and rolling heathland, is in complete contrast to the Manor Course. The ever-changing scenery of humps, hollows and meandering streams test golfing skills and judgement within an idyllic setting. The prospect of a deer emerging from the trees or a mare chivvying her foal across the fairway gives the Forest Course a special and unique appeal. The Forest Course is sited on open "common" land and as such, local commoners can graze their livestock on the golf course. Don't be suprised to see New Forest ponies, donkeys, cows and pigs at certain times of the year.
Due to the awful winter we have had, the relaunch of the new Forest Course layout has been postponed to Friday 18th May 2018. In the reconfiguration project, a new hole has been built and will replace the existing 15th hole to become a par 4. The old 1st hole (now the 4th) has already been redesigned from a par 4 to a par 3. For more information on the project please visit https://www.bramshaw.co.uk/news.php?newsitem=897
Due to restrictions placed upon us by the Forestry Commission, we are unable to allow the use of buggies on the Forest Course. Single seat, ride on buggies are permitted at owners own risk.
