The New Course
The New Course at Leckford was deisgned by Donald Steel and first opened in 1989, it is situated nearer to the centre of the village and set on a high flint based down plateau, in forty five acres and overlooks the Old Course and the River Test which is visible from the lower parts of the course.
The scenery is spectacular in every direction, and on a sunny spring day, it would be impossible not to spend a few moments just gazing in admiration.
More suited to the less experienced golfer, with three par threes and six par fours, it is the ideal layout for sharpening the short game, for good driving will leave short iron approaches to smaller greens and subtle undulations to test the putter. It has changed from the initial design created by Donald Steel, the addition of eighteen bunkers and an ornamental pool has made it a sporting challenge, and the perfect complement to the Old Course.
For those wishing to play more than eighteen holes, this course will make the day complete, good shot-making will yield a good card. For those wanting a less strenuous day, it will offer enough to test the short game and the putter. Like it’s older sibling, it is kept in fine order throughout the year, and the terrain makes it eminently playable whatever the weather.
