Come and play a round of golf at our beautiful course!
Southampton City Council took back the running of Southampton Golf Course on 1 April and we re-opened on 30 April 2021. We have made a lot of improvements to the greens as well as undertaking essential works which has all been very well received.
The renowned 27-hole course lies within a conservation area of natural beauty offering an outstanding location for a round of golf. The par 70, 6174yd, 18 hole is a championship course set in mature parkland and is regarded as one of the best municipal courses in southern England. Our nine hole course features par 3,4 and 5 holes and is easily fitted into a busy day.
Facilities include a practice field area, practice nets and putting greens.
Designed by British Open Champion, J.H. Taylor in 1935, the course is well served by transport links from the M3 and M27. This golf course is open to everyone, whether you’re a seasoned pro or a complete beginner. Season tickets are available, or you can simply book a pay and play round.
Our current opening times are 7am to 6pm Monday to Thursday and 7am to 5pm Friday to Sunday.
