Hayling Island serves the golfing fraternity well, with three locations for the golfer.
They comprise of:
Hayling Golf Club
The Hayling Golf Club was established in 1883 and is a SSI 71 links course that can stump even the most skilled of golf players. Based on the shores of the Solent, with stunning views across to the Isle of Wight, you can be guaranteed of a brand new challenge every time you tee up here. Due mainly to the inclement weather, no two playing days will ever be the same.
The main clubhouse, which overlooks the 19th hole, is built in a 1920’s style and the club boasts some of the best greens in all of Hampshire. The ground staff are extremely active with maintenance and upkeep of the greens, always striving for perfection.
Even though the club is private visitors are still welcome to come down for a ‘hack’, with green fees being paid beforehand in the pro shop.
