Southampton Municipal Golf Course

Come and play a round of golf at our beautiful course!

The 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. The current opening hours of the course are Monday to Friday from 7am to 7pm and at weekends from 6.45am to 6pm. 

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. We are now working to improve the Golf Course Cottages and the work to refurbish the cottages will start this spring.

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 course 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 three, four and five holes and is easily fitted into a busy day.

Designed by British Open Champion, J.H. Taylor in 1935, the course is well served by transport links from the M3 and M27.
