A nice course with friendly staff. Quiet hilly so you need to be fit and the layout can be confusing. Still an enjoyable experience

This is a nine hole course, but to make it 18 they have a second tee for each hole in a slightly different position - a clever idea.

Course isn't flat so gives your legs a nice work-out while enjoying the countryside.

When I teed off at 12, there was no-one about in the clubhouse, but as I'd booked through teeofftimes (£10 inc. booking fee), I had no problem getting started.

Course is a nice enough challenge for a moderate golfer...but greens were covered in sand and made putting and chipping a frustrating experience...the ball and putter had to be constantly cleaned at each hole, but it made judging pace of shots very difficult.

It was very quiet so was able to get round quickly and the price was very good, so I'd still recommend giving it a try.

From the friendly welcome when you arrive, from one of three lovely ladies, to the beer and sandwiches when you finish it is a great experience.

The course has 18 tees which on many holes make it a totally different hole. The greens are a good putting challenge and fairways are perfect to play off. Nice to see the rough is under control so you are punished for a bad shot but invariably can find your ball and.play out.

Beautiful countryside and layout of the course seems at times you are the only one out there. Great value.

Buggies are also available of you don't fancy walking. Stunning third hole which is about 180 yards par 3 and it is worth coming to play this hole on its own.

This course was laid by James Braid around 1908 when he was 3 times open champion. The quality of the layout shows. Its a challenging track with some great views on the west side of the course. It has retained it's early 20th century characteristic when 9 hole courses were the order of the day because at that time 4 hours for a round was just not practical. At the beginning of the 21st century we are also finding that golf is being restricted by the pace of life. Alton golf club offers you a special Alton Nine opportunity whee you play nine holes to become the monthly nine hole champion in 5 categories including Juniors so it's a great way for a Dad to take his son out for a couple of hours... a great experience for any lover of golf.
