Immaculate course, lots of "wow" factor......

Basingstoke is a private members course which I played on the 7th of May 2014 as part of "Senior Mixed Pairs National Qualifier", a game organised by Gary S. with whom I had a lots of mail exchanges regarding attendance/cancellation/fees etc. but I have no regret in having joined the game. It was a super day on an immaculate course, I met many new golfers from the South West (Hampshire, Dorset, Sussex), all belonging to private golf clubs.

A great venue, very well organised on a a course I thoroughly enjoyed as it suits my game, my artistic eyes: I could play this course over and over and never get tired of the very beautiful setting, the mature trees, the new ones with their shapes, colours all very well coordinated, blending well with the natural landscape, every hole is a picture postcard with the soft light of early spring. I could not stop using my camera. We had a fairly decent weather, but still cold for the season, some 2 or 3 holes were played under a very wet sky though.

A very well attended event with lively mixed crowd, I was in a friendly 4 balls where fun helped relax: we played rather well as a Team. Usual bacon rolls/coffee before the game & Gary S.' "pep" talk with the presentation of his own travel & leisure business which combines "cruises & golf", some people like cruises,.... Gary offered complimentary sandwiches with some very nice chips after the game. We had a special price of £35 for the round but I believe it is a lot more expensive if not in a group.

The course is very easily accessible from the M3, it has a large gated Car Park, the Proshop is ok, reception a little cold, maybe not used to see "lone" Lady golfer.... (ie, TSG nomads).

Clubhouse is more friendly, pleasant with large windows letting the natural light pour in, overlooking the terrace, the practice putting green and the beautiful course designed by James Baird well over 1000 years ago.

A gem really, with lots of "wow", extremely well maintained, perfect Tee boxes with ball washers, towels, course map, good signage to the next hole with a flowing design and nice paths. A pleasant walk, not too strenuous, no water hazards but the natural landscape with all the beautiful trees of this parkland/woodlands course provide the challenge with some tight fairways, some dog legs to negotiate too, with blind holes along the way. The Par 3 as usual are my favourites, always gorgeous looking. The greens were superb, extremely well protected by fierce bunkers filled with light soft sand making your escape a pleasure shot (no excuse not to get out, if unlucky to have been in there, it can happen to all of us, ).

A lovely round on an immaculately presented course, highly recommended but could be expensive if not in an organised group.

I believe there is a very strong membership at his private club and I can understand why.

Photos were posted early.
