Hayling Golf Club

Course overview

The only true links course in the area. In fact, the only true links on the south coast between Rye in East Sussex and Mullion in Cornwall.

Hayling Golf Club is a breathtaking course situated on the Hampshire coast just to the East of Portsmouth on Hayling Island. The pictures of this beautiful golf course tell the story more than words can, but we’ll try!

This Championship Links has played host to a number of big events over the years, including the Woman’s Amateur on 4 occasions, and it’s no surprise as to why.

Into it’s 15th decade having opened for play in 1883, the course is a traditional links, running out to around 6,500 yards with some truly unforgettable holes. In typical links fashion the course displays fast fairways, fine greens and year round playability complimented by spectacular sea views of the Solent and Langstone Harbour. Redesigned in 1905 by the famous J.H. Taylor, the course finds its way comfortably into the top 100 in England and is a must play if visiting the area.

Whilst a private members club, visitors are welcomed and encouraged to enjoy both the course and off-course facilities including the stunning art-deco clubhouse which houses the bar and restaurant.

Please note, this is a walking golf course due to the fragile nature of the land. Buggies are available strictly to those with a medical certificate.

Hayling is a fantastic addition to any tour and perhaps one of the South’s hidden gems when it comes to notoriety outside of the area. We really would recommend. Check out our example tours below and send us an enquiry for your next golf tour.

    Deposits are non-refundable, but they are transferable to a new date or break. We aim to be as flexible as possible and will treat each situation on a case by case basis.

  • 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.
