Barton-on-Sea Golf Club

Course overview

Tagged on our website under Dorset, however, this course actually sits on the Hampshire side of the South Coast border. Barton-on-Sea is a traditional links course with 27 holes of fantastic golf. The 27 are made up of the original 18 laid out over a period between the late 1800’s and mid-1940’s, with the newer 9 laid out in 1992. A rare occurrence of 3 loops of 9 holes of equal quality, however the often favoured 9’s are Becton and Needles which combine to a par 72 measuring over 6,400 yards.

The courses are hard to categorise and have elements of parkland, links, lakes and heathland about them. We have categorised as parkland on the website but cliff-top links would perhaps be more suitable.

A very high quality course where it really is worth playing all 27 during your stay. With a full membership, tee time priority is given to members meaning visitor times are strictly adhered to and unfortunately visitors are unable to visit at a weekend.

Sitting as one of our most Easterly courses, we suggest Barton-on-Sea is best utilised as a first or last day course for those travelling from the East of the UK for a Dorset based golf tour.

  • Can we make changes to our break?

    Managing a group can be a thankless task and changes to the group leading up to your break are an accepted element. We make changes as stress free as possible (just see our reviews for evidence of this!). Changes can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your break. Some changes are unavoidable so for legitimate reasons we will endeavour to make last minute changes after this period, but as we would have paid our venues at this point, this would be at the discretion of the venue(s) you are visiting.

  • How are package prices displayed on our website?

    Prices on our our website are displayed in two ways. The first is on our Resort pages where pricing tables show the from prices for low, mid and high season golf stay and play package rates at golf resort venues.

    The second is on our example tour package pages. There are often 4 prices shown here, two for low season and two for high season. The struck through price typically shows the highest price the tour can be and is often active over weekends in that season. The offer price is typically a mid week price.

    Every tour quote we offer is bespoke and will vary based on a number of factors including the date, availability, group size, room type, time of day for the tee time, etc… Our package pricing is a guide to the cost of the package and is not a firm price. Please enquire for an exact cost.

    We aim to provide as accurate a price as possible and therefore try to avoid using shoulder/mid season pricing or twilight green fee rates when displaying rates. You may find an intermediate price for breaks in months of April & October at certain venues.
