About the Course "The Championship course is a test for golfers of all abilities, it has a good balance of holes from the bunker filled 1st to the picturesque yet tricky 15th, there are plenty of challenges you will encounter on your way round.
The more open Parkland, front 9 can easily lure golfers into a false sense of security before hitting the heavily tree lined back 9, with some particular care needed on the 13th and 14th holes."

A great course, well maintained, with summer tees open well into the winter. Great food in the club house. Not sure about why you think there are no trees as most of the course winds through the woodland. Quite open but with some challenging holes with good bunker location to add to the challenge.
Paul Hopkins December 2, 2004

A testing mix of holes, some very open and long, others
alarmingly narrow meaning straight tee-shots are a must.
The front nine is more open, and the back nine a long tighter and tree-lined ...
A good, fair test for the handicap golfer and always an enjoyable round.

We played Paulton's Park on the 20TH Nov on a cold and wet day.
We started the day with a big breakfast and cup of coffee, great value for money.
We bought a yardage book, which was of great help, with distances from the tee and to the green.
The first two tees are Par 4 and Par 5 with very narrow fairways so not hitting the fairways is very easy, the rough was long which could put you in some awkward positions for your next shot.
The third tee was a Par 3 170yrds interesting hole with tree on the on both sides so make sure you hit a nice straight tee shot.
4th and 5th holes both have water on the right, so stay to the left, once again the fairways are tight but in great conditions for this time of year.
6th Par 3 183 yrd was a great hole the wind was blowing left to right.
Putting the bunker into play and the rough of course.
7th Par 5 476yrds not the most interesting of holes, but make sure you don't aim for the trees on the right and once again the fairways are tight.
8th Par 3 143yrds two bunkers are located front left and right side of green with an elevated tee.
9th Par 5 459yrds is a very open hole, so put your mad head on and try to hit a Tiger woods drive and on birdie could be you're for the taking. HAVE A GO!!!!!!!
10th Par 4 371 is an interesting hole water hazard on the right and trees to the left , if you can miss that a bunker 250 yrds from the tee on the right might. But if you can pull out a draw shot from your bag have a go.
11th Par 4 338 yrds trees on both sides of the fairway so play it safe and put the par on your card.
11th Par 3120 yrds great easy hole.
13th Par 5 468 yrds a very daunting shot as the trees are on both side of the tee and as a matter of fact all the way down the fairway. The green is well protected with trees on the entry and bunker on the right
14th Par 4 376yrds and once again trees on both side but a very straight hole so play it safe.
Jason Smith November 23, 2004 A great course for the mid to high handicapper. Some excellent holes and always in excellent condition.
The greens are fast and challenging with each hole giving you something different. the club house is of a very high standard and all the staff are polite and helpful.
Give this course a go great value for money.

I have been playing this course for about five years along with my golfing friends and we love it!
In Summer the course is great apart from one thing, the bunkers.
On three occasions we have asked if they could sort out the bunkers, to no avail. It would appear that the bunkers are never raked by the greenkeepers only by golfers. Most golfers will only rake a bunker towards their exit point from the bunker which is usually away from the face or lip, As a result you will find yourself bouncing your club off almost bare earth when anywhere near the face of the bunker, couple this with the fact that you need to replenish the sand occasionally, which has not happened for some time and you find yourself in a sitution where you can have a good score card wrecked! This has happened to myself and a number of my aforementioned friends.
At £23.00 a round we would have thought they could afford to maintain the bunkers properly.
The staff and the service they give is great but the whole thing is let down by bad bunker maintenance. You don't complain when you hit a bad bunker shot after all a bad shot put you there in the first place but when you suffer a double penalty because of poor maintenance it's not really on.
I am speaking through experience as both a player and a former member of the greenkeeping staff at Hockley Golf Club Nr Winchester.
Michael Fogarty August 15, 2005Paultons is a very well keptcourse for a pay and play. One off the best i have played. As for the bunkers, when we played they had all been raked by hand and were well presented as was the rest off the course.
I would recommend it highly.

I organised a society day at Paultons Park in May 2006 and unfortunately won't be doing so again. We booked the day months in advance, 18 players playing 36 holes with coffee, lunch and 3 course meal in the evening. When we arrived at about 0715 hrs for first tee time of 0800 hrs we found another society had been squeezed in front of us. They supposedly had only 12 players (which turned out to be more like 18). Need less to say our tee off times were ridiculously late, this problem occured again in the afternoon. Due to the slow play of the society in front we asked if we could move our afternoon tee times back to avoid rushing our lunch. This was met with a very uncooperative no from the "management". Food was very average and service the same. We have since complained to both the management at Paultons and Crown Golf. Neither have even bothered to reply.
Fortunately the day was not a total disaster. The course was in excellent condition and enjoyed by all of our members. Our handicaps range from 5 up to 25 but the course offers a fair and interesting challenge to golfers of all abilities.
Would I play Paultons Park again ? Most definitely yes !! Would I book a society day there again ? Most definitely NO !!!
Mike Cherrett July 15, 2006 We have been playing in different Societies at Paulton's for years and have always found them to be exceptionally good all round. The course as everyone describes above is easily the best all year round course, perfect for players and societies of all abilities, and they never have temp greens!!!
The food was also extremely good and the staff in the bar were very pleasant and efficient.
I have to say probably the best course in the area for service and value for money, and I would definitely recommend this course to anyone wishing to book a society summer or winter.
