The Loops at Sandford Springs
Set amongst the rolling hills of Berkshire and Hampshire, Sandford Springs boasts a trio of challenging nine hole courses, a welcoming clubhouse with extensive facilities, a Sandford Springs Golf Academy and a well-stocked golf shop with custom fitting services.
We never use temporary greens, don't have trolley bans and the course plays full length through the winter.
Sandford Springs makes the best use of its enviable geography to present three challenging and distinctly different nine-hole loop courses - The Park, The Wood and The Lakes.
Situated between Basingstoke and Newbury, the course was designed by Hawtree & Son, founder members of the British Institute of Golf Course Architects, ensuring the quality that is still clearly apparent today. The first eighteen holes were officially opened by Nick Faldo MBE and Bernard Gallacher OBE on 6 June 1989, a date celebrated annually at the Summer Ball. The final nine holes were added in the summer of 1991.
The course at Sandford Springs has recently had an investment of £1.5 million to improve the drainage on the course and another £250,000 to put some water back - this time selectively on tees, greens and approaches. The new automated irrigation system is now 'on-line' and completes the 4 year programme to turn Sandford Springs into the finest golf course in the region.
