NOT AS EASY AS IT MIGHT APPEAR
Burley Golf Club was established in 1905. The course was set out on Forestry land and is a typical heathland course that remains largely unspoiled today. Although there are only 9 greens, the tees are different for the front and back 9s adding some variety. The greens are renowned for their quality and certainly lived up to their reputation - remarkable given that the ponies have a free rein! Overall, nowhere near as easy as it might appear from the card and with a challenging walk thrown in, Burley is well worth a visit to sample New Forest golf in the raw. Also the first time that I have come across an "honesty box" to pay your green fee!
