FIVE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Golf World (UK) - - COURSES -

1Time for an ex­tra round? Bro­ken­hurst Manor, a Harry Colt de­sign in the New For­est, is closest to Stone­ham. Or, when you are at North Hants you’re just 11 miles from Hank­ley Com­mon, set apart from the other stars of Sur­rey and so of­ten missed off a trip there.

2Even if you don’t play Old Thorns, this very pop­u­lar re­sort should be your base, of­fer­ing mod­ern rooms, a lively sports bar and res­tau­rant, a gym, and on-site Star­bucks.

3Check re­gional flights into Southamp­ton as well as Bournemouth or Gatwick. Very cheap if booked early, they take lots of labour out of the trip.

4We ate at Old Thorns in the evening, but we are as­sured by lo­cals you’ll find ex­cel­lent fayre at The Ship Inn, a grand white build­ing you can’t help but no­tice on the en­trance to Hayling Is­land.

5Green fees drop markedly from Novem­ber 1; ex­pect to save a huge £35 at North Hants, £25 at Black­moor and £20 at both Hayling and Stone­ham.
