Army Golf Club
Laffans Road
Aldershot, F2 GU11 2HF, United Kingdom


01252 336722
The course is situated on 160 acres of low, undulating woodland between Farnborough and Aldershot. It has a par of 71 and features three par three and two par five holes. The par threes, the shortest of which is 168 yards, are a particular challenge for most golfers.

Measuring 6,550 yards from the white tees, the course is one of the longest golf courses in Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire 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 the regiment who sponsor their upkeep, span ditches that provide attractive features or hazards on many holes. These ditches ensure, particularly in the winter months, 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 halfway 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 positions 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.

  scottarmour - 7/29/14
A fantastic course in really good condition. At GBP40 it is reasonable value. The staff are friendly however, trying to get a beer at the end was not easy as I did not have any other shoes to wear in the clubhouse and there is no spike bar. On asking some members if I would be permitted to come in to the bar briefly to purchase a beer I was told no. Fair enough. On asking if they could possibly purchase me a beer I was told no by a member. Luckily a fellow member had some decency and helped me out.

A flat tree lined course bordering Farnborough airfild. Layout is good and the greens are pretty good with spme tough undulations. The fairways were pretty ropey when I played it and you were better off sometimes in the light rough but I understand the drainage had recently been updated. Well worth playing and not too tough IF you drive reasonably straight.
