Army Golf Club


Course Overview

The course is situated on 165 acres of low, undulating woodland between Farnborough and Aldershot. The 18 holes has, purple, white, yellow, red and blue ability tees. The three par 3's are a particular challenge for most golfers.

Measuring 6,629 yards from the purple tees, our course is one of the longest in this area, although the fairly level terrain means it remains a comfortable walk for most players.

Today's course layout was established in the 1960's and, during the summer, the greens are reputed as being among the best in Hampshire. Mature trees and rhododendrons border many of the shaped fairways and provide a blaze of colour in the spring. Groups of small deer can frequently be seen quietly observing play from woodland clearings adjacent to the fairways.

Bridges, each bearing the cap badge of regiments, span ditches that provide attractive features. These ditches ensure that surplus rainfall is dispatched efficiently allowing the fairways to remain firm and playable.

The first hole is a fairly straight-forward par 5 running alongside the Basingstoke Canal. The following two holes allow you to settle into your game before rising to take on a mixture of challenging holes from four through to fourteen.

Our Half-Way House provides an ideal place to pick up some refreshments during a round. The fifteenth hole is now identified as the "signature hole" of the Army course. Beautifully remodelled in 2001 it features a stream flowing between well-supported banks in front of a forward sloping green. From any tee position two solid, well-placed shots are needed to reach the green.

The final four holes provide a demanding finish for even the most accomplished player. The eighteenth features a large two-tiered green, rebuilt in 2003, requiring skill and concentration to read the borrows and avoid that dreaded three putt!

From the final green it is only a short walk up the bank to the clubhouse and some well earned refreshment.
