About the Club

The course was designed by Willie Park Junior, who also designed Old Course at Sunningdale and Stoneham shares a lot of the characteristics that can be seen there. The course retains the parkland character of the historical landscape improved upon in 1775 by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. It was opened in 1908 with a match between J H Taylor and James Braid.

Willie Park Junior laid out the original course in a deer park a mere three miles from the centre of Southampton, yet its hilly nature and the depth of its gorse and heather come as a pleasant surprise to most visitors. Stoneham is one of a select band of courses, of which it can be said that there is not an uninteresting hole in the round. The course is 6392 yards from the back tees, with a par of 72 and a SSS of 70. It provides a good challenge to golfers of all abilities as the course favours brain over brawn. Many of the approach shots here are uncompromising - you simply must make it onto the putting surface or face some serious recovery work.

The return of the Brabazon Trophy in 1993 was only the latest in a line of important tournaments held at Stoneham going back to 1946 when Bobby Locke and Jimmy Adams tied for the very first Dunlop Masters, an event still played for today on the European Tour as the British Masters. Other recent events include the English Ladies Strokeplay Championship and the English Club Championship.

Now the course hosts a number of annual events including the Solent Salver, a well recognised open tournament held over two days at Stoneham and Brockenhurst Manor Golf Clubs.

Traditionally, the Club gives strong encouragement to its Junior section where it is recognised that the future of the game and the Club are to be found. Our Professional assists with the coaching of our Juniors, helped by grants from the Golf Foundation and some of them attend the County coaching scheme which many of our senior members help to organise. As a result, our Juniors continue to achieve low handicaps and figure strongly in National competitions whilst some go on to take up the game as a profession.

Courses & Scorecards

Stoneham Golf Course

The course at Stoneham is laid out over a beautiful undulating landscape which is a combination of heathland and parkland.

Of the long par- 4s the 4th is exhilarating, driving out over heather before plunging steeply downhill. A stream crossing 90 yards short of the green is of concern to most golfers.

The 11th involves a sizeable carry over a cross-bunker from the tee followed by an uncompromising approach over a deep gully to a green perched on a ledge on the far side.

The Club employs a 3 colour system to indicate the position of the flag on the green. Red indicates a flag on the front third of the green, yellow for the middle and white for the back third. 150 yard to the centre of the green is marked by green posts with yellow tops on either side of the fairway.
