Golf Course Says
Hankley Common Golf Club was first opened for play over nine holes in 1897. In 1922 James Braid advised on the addition of a further nine holes. Bobby Locke described the course as the closest resemblance to a seaside links and the famous course architect, Charles Lawrie, once described the course as "one of the best inland layouts in Britain". The course and surrounding area are classified as a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest' which includes a number of indigenous trees such as Rowan, Oak and Silver Birch, together with the invading Scots Pine. The course is also home to many birds and animals, including the rare Dartford Warbler, Woodlark, Night Jar, Adder, Deer, Badger and the Sand Lizard.
What a great course Hankley Common is! Although it is stuck in the middle of no where, (I hope your sat nav works), this is a real gem. The greens are fairly flat, and very quick. Despite the rain, the course played fine, hence it drains well. The primary rough is heather, so just take a wedge and get it back into play. It took me 3 holes to learn this. The new purple tees makes it just over 6700 yards, and no one complains if you use them. Best holes are 7th, long par 3 over a valley, to upturn 2 tier saucer of a green, 14th a mid par 4 which reminds me of Sunningdale, and the 18th, a long par 4 which your iron needs to carry a large deep grass bunker.
