About Alton Golf Club
Golf clubs come in many shapes and sizes, so we thought it worthwhile to let you know a little bit about our golf club.
Founded in 1908, Alton Golf Club is a par 68 parkland course in North-East Hampshire.
The course was designed by world famous golf course architect and five time Open champion, James Braid, whose portfolio includes the reknowned Gleneagles King’s & Queen’s courses. The course layout consists of nine greens and eighteen separate tees, providing a variety of challenges for golfers of all abilities.
While the course may only measure 5,622 yards, it is no pushover. To score well, you need to negotiate some testing tee shots as the course meanders through the rolling hills of the beautiful north Hampshire countryside.
In order to protect the course from development the members voted to become a Sports Charity in 2012. Charity Registration number 1166738
The aim of the charity is to provide an unbeatable golf experience to the people of Alton and surrounding areas. Each year we run a number of charitable events. These include the provision of financial assistance to juniors, to encourage young golfers to take up the game, and also to Veterans enabling them to continue playing golf into their eighties and beyond. The charity is also proud to support people with disabilities to enjoy the game.
