Somerley Park Golf course is set on the Somerley Estate just north of Ringwood. The original course was designed by the late great John Jacobs – “Dr Golf”- and was opened for membership in 1995. Over the years the course has evolved and has been substantially altered due to changing circumstances and should remain in its current layout.
It is a 9-hole course but consists of 18 tee boxes. The total certified yardage for 18 holes is 5310 yards (Par 69). The front 9 holes total 2704 yards whilst the back 9 are 2606 yards. The course includes 2 par 5 holes, 11 par 4 and 5 par 3 holes.
The course is a mix of parkland and woodland and is relatively flat, but has some tricky greens and has some narrow fairways which demand a degree of accuracy.
A new single storey clubhouse was completed in 2016 and is a welcoming place to enjoy the company of members and visiting teams or simply to relax with a coffee, tea or perhaps a beer.
